See how Microsoft Dynamics compares to other business management software
Making the decision to change your company's financial management system is a process that requires research and foresight. Here are three top reasons why businesses using Sage financial management products have decided to make the switch to Microsoft Dynamics.
Microsoft Dynamics can grow with your business. Microsoft Dynamics offers outstanding scalability and performance based on the industry-standard Microsoft SQL Server, allowing you to scale from one to over 1,000 users on a single code base. Per the Accounting Library, Microsoft Dynamics also offers superior overall functionality, greater flexibility in GL account structures and budgeting, and better precision in inventory item tracking.
In short, Microsoft Dynamics gives you the flexibility and power you need for your growing inventory management, distribution, and reporting needs. And Microsoft Dynamics products can scale to meet your expanded needs, including powerful workflow capabilities and strong compliance functionality.
Microsoft Dynamics smoothly integrates your financial processes with your other business operations. If you're already using Microsoft Office and Windows, you'll find that Microsoft Dynamics is easy to use and works smoothly with the familiar Microsoft products you're already using. What's more, the underlying technology for Microsoft Dynamics is based on a standardized architecture that lends itself to outstanding third-party product integration. Our customers often benefit from smooth integration between Microsoft Dynamics and vertical or proprietary software.
