A recent study shows that more than half of small business owners are unprepared for data loss. This is certainly not ideal, but with everything that goes into running a small business, it’s no wonder that something like backing up data often slips through the cracks. However, with 60% of small businesses never recovering after data loss, data backup is one of the most important things you can do for your business, and it can actually make your life easier instead of more complicated. One of the best and simplest online backup solutions on the market today is Acronis True Image, and it is ideal for busy business owners.
Blockchain was developed over a decade ago and came into the public domain when Satoshi Nakamoto released the whitepaper entitled "Bitcoin: A Peer to Peer Electronic Cash System." Even though Satoshi's true identity remains unknown, the impact his whitepaper has had on technology cannot be disputed. Not only did it launch the cryptocurrency revolution, but it also spawned a whole new solution domain founded on Bitcoin's blockchain technology.
When asked why a manager had not backed up before a catastrophic data loss event, what excuse do you think they had? We believe that there are rebuttals and solutions for any excuse and have put together this list of the common reasons for not performing data backups and why you should go ahead anyway. Do you use any of these excuses? Read on to find out!
A few weeks ago, I was having a conversation with family members about my job, and the dreaded question came up: “what exactly is Dynamics 365?”. These people had very little IT or business knowledge, so I knew explaining this would be a challenge. I started by telling them about CRM and ERP. The result: people nodding their heads in utter confusion. Then I told them about SaaS software. I mentioned that companies use products like Dynamics 365 to increase productivity. More confusion ensued. After 5 minutes, I gave up and told them I worked in the technology sector. We all agreed this was a sufficient level of understanding and went on with our lives. Then a few days later, I realized what I should have said to them instead of the mumble jumble business jargon.
The data your organization produces every second of every day is what runs and differentiates your business. In fact, data is the lifeblood of modern organizations. Unlike applications and services which you can repair, reinstall or remedy if they fail, data is irreplaceable, and losing data could be catastrophic for your business.
What is Sales Automation? Business process automation has been around for a long time, and sales is a process that is more balanced when automated. We need to be able to automate manual, repetitive, administrative, and time-consuming tasks our sales team regularly does. Sales automation should allow our sales team to focus on selling and […]
Did you know that after a catastrophic data loss event, 93% of businesses will file for bankruptcy before the end of the year, and yet 80% of all companies responded (in the same survey no less) that they were confident they would survive a major data loss event themselves1? It's statistics like these that can give a startling image to the real world of data management, and just how razor-thin this edge is that most businesses operate on. Read on to explore the nine most mind-blowing statistics on data loss and how you can best manage the risks.
An Azure Network is a logical isolation and representation of a network in the cloud. Since Azure’s core services use virtualization, we refer to these networks as Virtual Networks (VNet). These VNets can provision and manage Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) on Azure, connect with different VNets on Azure, link the Azure VNets with the on-premises environment, and much more.
During the initial phase of a company, you only need a few employees to process the customers’ requirements. You can serve hassle-free information requests from customers by hand. As time goes by, you start growing rapidly from a startup to a mid-size organization. As your business needs increase, you can’t rely on the old, manual […]

Like other ERPs, it will support enterprises in their daily tasks to better manage their resources, inventory, teams, and the core processes of their business. By centralizing everything under the same roof, an ERP makes it easy for every part of a team to accomplish […]
Did you know that 51% of companies that suffer severe data loss filed for bankruptcy within two years? That 43% did not even reopen after the disaster?* Firms could have avoided being part of these shocking statistics if they had just considered, even for five minutes, how they are backing up their data. So, if […]

Do you have Office 365 secure email encryption? If you are reading the above sentence and don’t have a definite answer, this is the article you must read today. In a previous article Office 365 Security: 6 Genuine Concerns (And How to Address Them), we discussed the top Office 365 email security concerns, and what you can do as a business to better protect your data. From your feedback, we saw that more education on the types of encryption for Office 365 is needed, and thus this ultimate guide Office 365 secure email was born.
Hacker – a word that conjures up images of a man in a baseball cap, alone in a dark room, surrounded by machines and blinking lights, out to spread chaos around the universe. While this image is often inaccurate – hackers can be anyone, anywhere, with any device – the threat is very real. You know the danger exists, but how can you protect yourself and your data from a threat that seems invisible and undetectable?
When clients hire you as their managed services provider, it means they have trusted you with the most important asset in their business – their data. This is a trust that if breached can never be recovered. Just one attack could damage your reputation and cause you to lose clients and revenue. You know it is of the utmost importance to ensure that your clients’ data remains safe and secure, but fighting against hackers can be a constant challenge. With new technology coming out every day and armies of people working to exploit that technology, what threats are out there and how can you fortify your systems against them?
Microsoft Office 365 is one of the most used software packages in the world, with 27 million active consumer users and over 100 million active enterprise users. With the latest version released in 2016, Office 365 has taken and integrated the latest cloud technology to their famous word processing and business apps.
Microsoft’s cloud platform is rich in features. In a few button clicks, you can quickly provision services, servers, and much more. Today, we look at seven features Azure offers you may not know about that could make your life a little easier.
There’s no shortage of CRM systems today. As demand for such business solutions keeps increasing, we’re seeing IT companies of all sizes getting into that market with very competitive offerings. Today we’ll talk about Dynamics 365 and Sugar CRM, two very capable CRM systems going head to head. Let’s see how they compare.
Many in the IT industry will argue certifications are of no real benefit and that is the deciding factor in determining the potential value of a skilled resource. Although this may seem like a valid argument, IT certifications do have some value in determining an individual’s level of technical expertise. Certifications show that the individual is capable of taking a complex task, understanding what needs to be done to achieve specific objectives and then accomplishing set goals. Certifications also ensure the certified individual is current on the latest technical knowledge available, a necessity in a world where technology is continually changing.
The Internet of Things (IoT), is a collection of technologies which give computing devices embedded in everyday objects the ability to send and receive data from cloud applications. Over the past few years, they have redefined the technology landscape. With the IoT market expected to grow over 28% and reach an estimated value of $457 Billion in 2020, businesses operating in every industry should take a closer look at the opportunities this shift in the technology paradigm has to offer.
DevOps is the union of people, process, technology, and products along with automation software to provide continuous value to end users quickly and safely without the need to worry about IT department size or the tools used to develop the business applications.

Azure Security Center (ASC) is a Microsoft Azure service which provides a unified security management solution for Azure subscribers. ASC offers advanced threat protection services and works across hybrid clouds letting you manage the security of both cloud and on-premise workloads.
In previous posts, we covered various topics in Azure and explored some of the core offerings from raw computing capability and storage plus compared how Azure stacks up against other major cloud offerings such as Amazon’s AWS and Googles Cloud Platform. In this blog post, we look at Azure again; specifically, how the platform lets developers build and support chatbots at scale. Whether you’re new to chatbots or already have some experience, we’re sure you’ll find some new insights.
If you followed any news about Dynamics 365 in the last couple of years, you’ve probably bumped into the word “PowerApp.” Microsoft has been pushing the concept for a while, and it doesn’t seem like it’s going to stop anytime soon. Want to know what PowerApps are? How are they used and how can you […]
Azure SQL is Microsoft’s cloud offering of a database as a service using the Microsoft SQL Server Engine. It is built using the SQL server database technology and is tailored for the Azure cloud platform. Azure SQL makes it possible for organizations to store all of its relational data in the Azure cloud and quickly and upscale or downscale the size of the databases as business requires. It also offers a fully managed, intelligent, reliable, and secure database service.
There has been significant growth in the adoption of cloud services over the past few years as businesses discover the advantages of hosting services and applications on this flexible, efficient, and scalable platform. However, as many have discovered, the journey to the cloud is not a simple exercise if legacy on-premise services and applications form part of the organization’s enterprise IT environment. Moving on-premise applications and services to the cloud, or integrating these systems with cloud services, requires a comprehensive cloud migration strategy.
In this article, we will focus on a price comparison between Salesforce and Microsoft Dynamics 365. They are both solid options, but there are a few differences. We'll be giving an overview of those differences
Microsoft Azure is a world-leading public cloud platform which provides a robust, scalable, and flexible Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering. The Azure IaaS platform gives you the ability to create Virtual Machines (VMs) in seconds from a set of predefined images which have been created by Microsoft and other parties. This VM solution offers true flexibility to choose from a variety of workloads offering support for a range of operating systems from Microsoft Server 2008 R2 to various flavors of Linux.
For a business to thrive, the most significant factor is business continuity and fault tolerance. Businesses should be able to recover from all kinds of catastrophes while having a minimum downtime of their services due to the results of natural disasters, human-made disasters, and operational failures. For many business organizations, service downtimes directly add to monetary losses. For example, a telco company would face both short and long-term losses of millions of dollars if their services are down for a mere couple of minutes.
Different businesses may find themselves in a situation where they are planning to deploy Microsoft Dynamics 365 for their Sales Team. In this case, they would have to make the decision of which license to get between the two Dynamics 365 Sales App: Sales Professional and Sales Enterprise. Throughout this article I will guide you […]
In a previous blog post, we ran through Azure’s features and compared and contrasted Azure to Amazon’s cloud offering, AWS. In this blog, we continue with this theme and compare the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) with Microsoft Azure. The Google Cloud Platform journeyed into the mainstream back in 2011, so it’s been around as long as Microsoft Azure. Its initial use was for Google’s backend services like YouTube and the Google search engine. These backend services were ultimately shared with enterprise, and it’s grown as a platform ever since. To make the comparison easier, we’ll use the same structure as the previous blog post, and after you’ve read this final comparison, you’ll have a better understanding of the Azure, AWS, and the GCP landscape!
Customer service is not just about solving your customers’ problems. It is directly related to how the public views your company. Bad customer service can immediately affect your reputation, which will, in turn, drive your profits downhill. Nobody wants that. Microsoft has excelled in Customer Service from the CRM days (Dynamics CRM) all the way to Dynamics 365. Now that it’s a standalone app, it contains all the components needed to have a robust Customer Support System that can easily integrate with other Microsoft apps. (It can be used with Dynamics 365 for Sales, Marketing, and more.) They will share the same data model to avoid duplicated data
In our earlier blog posts, we’ve covered many Azure features, highlighting its PaaS capabilities and touching on some of the artificial intelligence services (Cognitive Services APIs) and how the Azure platform offers a rich ecosystem for businesses to host, scale, manage and easily provision services in the cloud. In this blog post, we compare Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure, and we look at the key features both computing platforms have to offer. By the time you’re done reading, you’ll have a better understanding of both AWS and Azure.
As a managed service provider, your job first and foremost is to make sure that your client is always up and running. This naturally includes technical support, infrastructure maintenance, data backup, cybersecurity, etc. However, truly successful MSPs do more than that. They become a real strategic partner for their clients. It means they offer consulting services and advise clients on cloud solutions that can streamline processes for efficient business operations.
Microsoft Azure Stack is a true hybrid cloud computing solution which is an extension of Azure allowing organizations to provide Azure services using their own on-premises data centers. The data centers convert into a Public Cloud that runs Microsoft’s Azure Cloud platform. The basic principle of the Azure Stack is to enable organizations to hold sensitive data and information with their own data centers while giving the ability to reach the public cloud of Azure. Similar to Azure, Azure Stack services run on top of Microsoft Hyper-V on Windows and uses Microsoft’s Networking and storage solution to function seamlessly.
If you’re reading this, you’ve probably purchased Dynamics 365 or are thinking about getting it. Therefore, you may be looking for the features and benefits it brings to the table. You came to the right place.
Microsoft Azure, like many other cloud service providers, have built their billing and subscription models on a pay-per-use basis i.e. if you consume one hour of CPU time you pay for the hour you have consumed. No more, no less. This basic economic principle forms the foundation of most public cloud services. However, the implementation of this simple concept can be quite complex and intricate. This is especially true if the cloud provider offers a wide variety of cloud services which consume computing resources in different ways as is the case with Microsoft Azure.
The IT of business organizations has moved from the data center era to the cloud era and has embraced the open world of technology. Since these data centers came into being, identity and management play a vital role. Unlike the beginning of the data center era, identity in the multi-cloud environment is central, extending from the IT backbone to the user experience (UX). Windows Azure Active Directory services are not the same as the Windows Server Active Directory. Azure Active Directory (AAD) is Microsoft’s multi-tenant cloud-based identity management and directory service combining directory services, advanced identity governance, application access management and a rich standards-based platform for developers. From an IT admin perspective, Azure AD provides a cost-effective, efficient and easy-to-manage solution to provide business users and employees single sign-on access to cloud-based SaaS applications such as Office 365, Dropbox, Concur and Citrix.
For companies looking to manage workloads effectively, both on-premise solutions and the cloud seem like optimal solutions. Over the past few years, organizations have been moving toward the cloud to run even mission-critical applications. The cloud has come a long way since its debut, offering tighter security, more flexibility, and cost-effective pricing models. However, the on-premise model may be ideal for companies who need complete control over their data and that have strict privacy laws. For a comparison of each pricing model, keep reading.
In 2015, Microsoft introduced the Cortana Intelligence Suite. It was designed to help create the "next generation of applications." Powered by both AI and the Azure platform, the Cortana Intelligence Suite can easily process data from multiple sources such as devices, sensors, applications, files, logs and more. It provides actionable insights to help businesses take their decision-making to the next level of accuracy and efficiency. Its key pillars include:
Unless you are starting a project or business from scratch, moving to the cloud will require some form of data migration from your existing infrastructure to your new cloud platform. Microsoft Azure has a variety of tools to assist with copying your data from your current platform to their public cloud service. These range from […]
Remote Desktop Services (RDS) or as it was previously known, Windows Terminal Server, has been the remote access backbone protocol to Windows servers since Windows Server 2003. The ability to remotely access and interact with the graphical user interface (GUI) on a Windows server is a critical operational function for Windows systems administrators everywhere. For […]
Microsoft is one of the biggest technology companies in the world. It has played a major role in changing the way we live and work by introducing products like Windows, Office, Azure, and more. Dynamics 365 is their business solutions giant that unifies multiple applications that can help transform your business. They took all separate existing solutions (Dynamics CRM, Dynamics NAV, Dynamics AX, etc.), divided them into different apps, rebranded and merged them under one umbrella.
Organizations often wonder what the difference is between a customer relationship management system (CRM) and an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. The two systems are similar in many ways but have different core functionalities. Both are valuable business solutions that improve both revenue and productivity. So, are you ready to learn more about the differences? Let’s compare and contrast.
Microsoft Azure’s App Service offering is an enterprise-grade, fully managed platform which gives you all the functionality you need to deploy custom developed applications and services.
Big Data is a generic term which describes a large volume of data. However, in the context of data analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, Big Data refers to a large set of data which is analyzed by a set of technologies to reveal patterns or trends. The proliferation of the Internet and specifically cloud services is directly responsible for the growth in Big Data. In the past, data was created in smaller volumes in isolated environments for specific purposes. Today, large sets of data are available for public consumption thanks to the digital disruption brought about by social media, the Internet of Things (IoT), and other online-based software applications which have created vast amounts of publicly accessible data.
Data is the digital essence of modern organizations and to ensure the survival of your business you need to protect this vital resource. Backing up your data is the first line of defense in data protection. It forms the foundation to build other data protection solutions like disaster recovery, business continuity, and high-availability. Backing up your data is not a new concept or practice. When punch cards were the data storage system of the day, operators had a second copy. However, the technologies we use to backup data have changed radically over the years, and the Internet has created the next step in this evolution—cloud-based backup solutions.
Ever since Microsoft announced the release of Dynamics 365 in 2016, one ‘module’ was obviously missing. In Microsoft Dynamics CRM (which is what ‘Customer Engagement’ was pre-Dynamics 365), there was a module exclusively for Marketing that contained marketing lists, campaigns, etc. These entities were merged into the Sales app, and it made perfect sense. But companies were still missing a dedicated Marketing app mature enough to handle the heavy marketing workload.
Microsoft has evolved dramatically since its foundation in 1975. It grew from a small software company to a become a world known technology giant. Today, it is safe to say that Microsoft is one of the world’s largest and most impactful companies in the world. Expansion is not easy. Many companies fail when trying to make it big today. Especially for technology companies, today’s top products could easily be forgotten in a year or two if they don’t manage to follow-up with the competition. (We’re looking at you Nokia and Blackberry.) For a company to survive, they need to forget about the now and focus on the next
Let's first discuss the term “aaS,” which is a Service. In simpler terms, it's known as the “Cloud.” This Cloud Computing Model enables on-demand access to a pool of computing resources such as storage, servers, applications, and services that can be managed with minimum effort. Azure offers three main cloud computing platform services
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was designed by the European Parliament and Council to replace the Data Directive 95/46/ec in May of 2018. As a result, the GDPR will be the main regulation guiding how organizations handle and protect the personal data of EU citizens. Based on the GDPR, any company who handles the personal data of an EU citizen will be affected and must comply. While there are many companies already in compliance with the Data Protection Directive, they must now ensure they will be compliant with GDPR before May 25, 2018.
Microsoft Azure Storage is a managed cloud storage service which is secure, scalable, durable, redundant, and highly available. Within Azure, there are two types of storage accounts, five types of storage, four levels of data redundancy, and three tiers for storing files. This article will primarily be focusing on the blob storage option of Azure storage, and its primary goal is to dig deep into the blobs of Azure.
The adoption of Cloud Computing has exploded in recent years, and it’s easy to understand why. The days when businesses would purchase physical hardware and task infrastructure teams with building servers aren’t quite gone yet, but platforms like Microsoft Azure are making it easier than ever to provision servers and computing services with just a few mouse clicks.
Azure is a public cloud platform operated by Microsoft, but is Microsoft ultimately responsible for securing the platform? Microsoft may well be responsible for securing the underlying platform, but because Azure is a complex, multi-layered offering, there are certain responsibilities for securing Azure components which fall to the subscribers of this service.
Let’s say you’re a millionaire and I’m a Ferrari salesman. I can spend weeks preparing a presentation showcasing all the car’s specs and technical features. Or, I can invite you to test drive and feel the engine’s power while the car goes from 0 to a 100 km/h in 3 seconds. Which way will sell the car faster? That’s right. There’s no doubt that specs are very important; we all need theory to understand the basics of how things work. But when people are paying big sums of money for their product, they would like to see it in action before making a purchase decision.
Microsoft is one of the biggest players in the business solutions market today. Dynamics 365 continues to grow to cover more areas while satisfying more requirements. That’s great for Microsoft as well as for the customers. Businesses will not need five separate software licenses and different integrations to cover their business processes; one product will soon be able to cover most (if not all) of them.
The idea of reselling software licenses has somewhat of a bad reputation among Microsoft Dynamics partners. Most see it as a time-consuming task that results in minimal profits. However, the landscape is rapidly changing and as we discussed in a previous blog post, there are now numerous benefits to becoming a reseller with the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program.
I won’t sugar coat it. Microsoft’s latest branding efforts for its mid market ERP solution have been very laborious. Don’t believe me? Here are all the names they used to talk about the same product in the past couple of years:
Virtualization has had a monumental impact on IT infrastructure in the past decade, and one could argue that virtualization is the catalyst which created the explosive growth we see in cloud services today.
We are living in a world of data. That’s a fact, not an opinion. We have some of the world’s largest companies setting up their business models based on data collected (from Google, Facebook, etc.). When a business grows to a certain size, it will reach the point where they might have multiple interactions with customers using various platforms.
Many trends in sales automation will be game changers. Among those, social selling and the impact of LinkedIn Sales Navigator to Dynamics 365 users are trends to watch. The integration between LinkedIn Sales Navigator and Dynamics 365 has a lot of potential can bring several benefits to the sales team if used correctly. Before we discuss LinkedIn Sales Navigator and Dynamics 365, let’s have a look at what social selling is all about.
Dynamics 365 is without a doubt one of the biggest and most popular business solutions in the market today. When Dynamics products were introduced, a major selling point was the level of customization achievable within a solution that meets all the customers’ requirements. One unique customization is the integration with other systems. Even with all the out-of-the-box features, sometimes integrating with different solutions can make Dynamics 365 much more powerful.
In 2011, Microsoft introduced Office 365. By doing that, Microsoft began shifting from selling products to selling software as a service (SaaS). Office 365 is sold on a subscription-based model to provide Microsoft’s productivity tools and cloud storage. It also includes exchange online (Outlook), SharePoint, Yammer, Cortana, PowerBI and Skype for business. Five years later, […]
SharePoint is a web-based document management system developed by Microsoft to facilitate organizational document sharing and team collaboration. With its built-in Office 365 integration, it quickly became an ‘Enterprise favorite.’ SharePoint provides users with an excellent security model and many customization options ensuring only the right people have access to the right documents.
Nothing compares to simplifying customer and coworker interaction. With the integration of Skype and Dynamics 365, you can contact your colleagues or CRM contacts in a jiffy by clicking the phone number field of your record.
You can configure external Yammer networks to have discussions with your prospects and customers. Moreover, Microsoft Dynamics 365 offers seamless Yammer integration. If you're not already using Yammer with Dynamics 365, you should and here's why.
Although numerous small and big machine learning service providers have emerged in the market; Azure Machine Learning Studio remains a reliable name, offering advanced features.
Not all ERPs are created equal. Since they are designed to suit very complex core business processes and not all businesses operate the same way, it is interesting that software companies make ERP that targets specific industries or companies.
The growth of social networks and social media opens new doors for salespeople. Instead of interrupting potential customers’ lives with cold calls and hard sells, social networks can be useful to develop relationships throughout the sales process. Social Selling helps salespeople use social networks to connect with the right prospects. It plays a huge role in customer engagement allowing your salespeople to have direct one-on-one relationships with potential buyers which could have a positive impact on your business.
What is Sales Automation? Business process automation has been around for a long time, and sales is a process that is more balanced when automated. We need to be able to automate manual, repetitive, administrative, and time-consuming tasks our sales team regularly does. Sales automation should allow our sales team to focus on selling and […]
Successfully implementing a CRM or an ERP is challenging. Microsoft Dynamics solutions are not spared this curse. In fact, it’s so well-known in our industry that some think it’s impossible to implement successfully.
If you're having a difficult time choosing between Microsoft Dynamics 365 and QuickBooks, then it's a good idea to compare the features of each. Both are rated high for overall performance. When you're ready for more than basic accounting software, then either option deserves a closer look.
Recently, we hosted a webinar that regrouped Dynamics CRM partners across North America. To get feedback from attendees, we asked the audience a simple question: Are you familiar with Microsoft’s Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program?
Gone are the days when you would need to purchase a Dynamics CRM manual from Microsoft or get it through a paid training session. The courses are costly, and often the trainers are just following the material without anything to add to help consultants get certified.
The cloud is always in motion whether it’s to keep up with ever-growing technology or the demands of its clients. It offers an environment on the cutting edge of technology while suiting different industry requirements. That’s true with Microsoft Azure.
Deciding on the right software for your business can be rather tasking. If you are familiar with how software development works, you may contemplate on whether to buy off-the-shelf software like Dynamics 365 or to build a custom solution to cater to your business needs. What is Dynamics 365? Dynamics 365 is a product […]
Many businesses still use several software applications to manage different departments, functions, and lines of business. But this can hamper growth if the systems aren't scalable and are legacy. If your company is ready to enhance productivity while cutting costs, then it may be time to implement an ERP system. There are still a few questions to ask. Keep reading to learn more.
You've invested a lot of money to build the best on-premises solution for Dynamics 365. Most of you just purchased new hardware to run their applications and are not interested in spending more money to change how you use Dynamics. So, how can we convince you to make the big move to the cloud? There are two versions of Dynamics 365. There's the Dynamics 365 cloud version and the on-premises version. Let’s take an in-depth look at both.
Does it take longer than it should for your company to reconcile financial transactions at month's end? Do you rely on guesswork instead of hardcore facts and figures to forecast sales? Do you sense a faltering in the customer satisfaction ratio? Sound about right? If yes, then these are tell-tale signs your enterprise is in dire need of an efficient ERP system.
ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems no longer require an introduction. For businesses way past the stage of being a startup, investing in a good system no longer is an option. It is a necessity. ERP systems have been a part of the business software landscape for a long time. It’s also common knowledge that since their foray into the world of business, vendors are continually evolving them, so they are more robust, powerful, affordable, and easier to use.
No, this is not clickbait. Dynamics NAV is really moving to the cloud. I’m not talking about a lighter version of NAV; I’m talking about full NAV functionalities on the cloud that are part of Dynamics 365.
The strengths and weaknesses of Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Azure have been well documented by now. One thing we tend to overlook though, is how well Dynamics 365 and Azure actually work together. When combined, these products help each other out and users can greatly benefit from this combination. In this article, we will […]
Selling Microsoft Azure is no small task. Even though there is a growing user base of 80 million monthly Office 365 users to convert to Azure, our leads are not always aware of all the benefits of Microsoft’s Cloud.
As Microsoft partners and clients, we can tell you one thing we’ve learned over the years; it’s hard to predict where Microsoft will go next. By now, we have grown used to Microsoft making major adjustments in a matter of weeks. This includes changing product names, licensing options, etc.
When you grow from a startup to a mid or large-size organization, operations become increasingly difficult to handle. A business needs a focused and systematic approach to manage planning, development, manufacturing, marketing, sales, finances, operations, customer service, human resources and other day-to-day activities to cope with rapid expansion. Most businesses turn to Enterprise Resources Planning […]
Combining your CRM and ERP should be a critical part of your companies’ future roadmap. As mentioned earlier, data is king and removing the silos and building a system that is a CRM and ERP allows for less training, satisfied staff, and gives insights you never expected about your data.
Objectively comparing software is always tricky. I’ve read many posts over the years that have a preference bias for one piece of software over another. As an expert in Dynamics 365, I can tell that they apparently don’t know the product and are misrepresenting the features and functionality.
Before deciding which enterprise to go with, it’s important to understand what an ERP application can offer and at what price. Determining which ERP solution to use depends on licensing cost and feature sets. This article will cover the feature sets of ERP and Microsoft offerings of ERP.
Dynamics 365 continues to improve and develop. Understanding changes are vital for your business to be as productive as possible. Today we will tell you about the three most significant trends in Dynamics 365.
How much do you know about Dynamics 365?
