Expanding businesses, like small distributors and manufacturers, need the right process tools to remain competitive in today’s marketplace. Ideally, the decision to implement such programs, like Microsoft Dynamics NAV cloud, should occur long before the business feels competitive pressures to do so, as noted in a Forbes overview on ‘change management.’
“It’s easy for leaders to say that they need to improve and invest in doing things better (either because the marketplace is telling them to or because they need to be proactive before circumstances force their hand). The reality is that without strategy, change is merely substitution – not evolution.”
At times, business owners may push back on replacing their on-premise legacy programs, fearing the disruption. What will happen to customer orders? Will payroll get out on time? Delays may occur in ordering materials to keep product moving through the line.
Consequently, when it comes to using a two-tiered approach embracing both cloud-based services (SaaS) and on-premise programs, uncertainty is further enhanced. Will using the cloud mean giving up control of proprietary data, documents and files—though a more proper question, according to Cloud Tech, is whether or not the business is really in control of their data as it exists on-premise.
A Dynamics NAV cloud solution brings better efficiency with its integrated approach to financial and supply chain management; sales and marketing; warehouse inventory management and customer relations. It offers a range of capabilities that can be quickly customized without hiring special IT support to do so, thereby providing a fully scalable ERP platform.
