As a successful SMB owner of a small manufacturing business, you’re beginning your search for ERP software. But the vetting process with so many options available quickly curbed your enthusiasm for making any changes to your legacy system: On-premise programs residing on numerous, non-integrated PCs.
Yet, even with all the vertical-specific software in today’s digital landscape bombarding you with claims to be the ‘excellent’ fit for your needs, Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 just makes more sense for a number of reasons.
First, this ERP software, commonly thought to be targeted to horizontal versus vertical markets, provides an array of ready-to-go templates. Each can be easily tweaked to streamline most any production and accounting processes. What’s more, this customization can usually be accomplished without special coding, or IT assistance.
Now, in today’s Fourth Industrial Revolution, where supply chains and factory floors merge into an ever-advancing “digitization in unanticipated ways,” Dynamics GP 2016 enables SMBs with capabilities for monitoring every phase of the supply chain, production cycles and financials with real-time data.
By adding Microsoft Azure’s cloud-hosting services to the mix, Dynamics GP 2016 provides more opportunities for mobile collaboration. In addition, analytics of customer preferences, for example, are enhanced with the new functionality of Microsoft’s Power BI (business intelligence) dashboards. As CMSWire points out:
“Although many analytical applications currently on the market claim to offer real-time insights, those insights haven’t truly harnessed the ability to reflect — and then act upon — customer behavior on a real-time basis.”
