Who remembers when there were no ERP Systems?

I personally don’t… but I do know it took over a century of development to finally have a “modern ERP system”

Back in the day (as I was told), businesses were using management tools like “Economic Order Quantity” (EOQ) or “Materials Requirement Planning” (MRP) to organize and manage their resources and operations.

Later on, they have seen the emergence of integrated systems like “Manufacturing Resource Planning” (MRP) solutions designed to manage inventories and productions. These new computing platforms are expensive and at times inefficient, but their development soon ushers in a new era…

The era of Modern ERP solutions… Designed to touch nearly every aspects–from the company’s operation, collecting and analyzing data–and becoming a must-have for all companies around the world.

The ERP Vision | What an ERP should be…

At TMC, we have been working with Microsoft ERP solutions for over three decades, therefore, we have seen how the ERP landscape evolved and how Microsoft’s vision has been more than innovation. So innovative that Gartner identifies their solutions as “ERP II” – Cutting edge ERP systems allowing real-time, web-based data access capabilities.

Basically, Microsoft understood the importance of allowing their ERP solutions to integrate seamlessly with the emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (AI).

Finally, in order to provide a true transformation experience, Microsoft has built the most functional, encompassing cloud-based solution on the market.

The ERP Market Data | The reality of the market

Unfortunately, in 2019, we still see companies that are using an on-premise ERP solution; and to be honest, they are starting to admit to feel the effects. They have difficulties to meet internal deadlines, or they know their teams won’t be able to find the specific data they need to make a decision. Consequently, they start to be less and less profitable.

When this happens, we urge those companies to become faster, smarter and more efficient in their daily operations. To do so, we upgrade them to a cloud-based ERP solution and integrate it with other potent productivity tools.

Today, just moving to the cloud is not enough anymore. You need to implement a fully cloud-based set of business applications to turn today’s most advanced solutions into operational applications that drive the performance companies need.

This is something Microsoft, with its vast array of capabilities, is uniquely prepared to provide. Built-in and for the Microsoft Azure Cloud, Dynamics 365 unifies business operations across finance, manufacturing, inventory, and  transportation management with an intuitive user interface for running game-changing, modern global enterprises.
