Does Platform Factor into Your Software Decision Making Criteria? It Should.

Familiarity breeds… comfort

One of the most compelling reasons to choose Microsoft Dynamics for your ERP and CRM solutions is the universal familiarity of the Microsoft platform. This is a major differentiator since it allows you not only to further leverage your existing Microsoft investment but to also minimize the churn that happens when a new solution is deployed. Outlook, Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and the majority of Microsoft server and Microsoft Dynamics products are now interoperable in a way that is so seamless as to be virtually invisible to the end-user, making the switch-over to a new solution easier. Companies that cite this as a major factor in their ERP and CRM software decisions also cite higher productivity and margins in their businesses.

Multi-generational mobility

You can have the most familiar platform in the multi-verse, but if it can’t go mobile, you’re dead in the water. Why? Because everyone’s workers are on the move. EVERYONE. People want and expect to be able to access the information they need from any device, anywhere. And it’s not just your youngest employees, either. By 2020, it’s expected that there will be FIVE generations working together in the American workforce. Across the generational spectrum, people want their solutions to provide the same intuitive experience on the computer, tablet, phone, and any other device. In fact, in a recent survey, 86% of respondents said that a mobile option for their work applications was more important than any other factor. Microsoft has invested heavily in the cloud and mobility with its Azure offering, not to mention 85 percent of Fortune 500 companies are using the Microsoft Cloud.

Be sure to consider the platform in your ERP and CRM software decision-making process to leverage the advantages you’ve already invested in and keep your employees on task and happy.
