See how Microsoft Dynamics compares to other business management software
Making the decision to purchase a new business management system is a process that requires research and foresight. Here are three top reasons why businesses have selected Microsoft Dynamics over Sage business management software.
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 2,250 users on a single code base. Microsoft Dynamics also offers strong overall functionality to help meet the needs of your business today, and in the future.
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.
Microsoft is committed to enhancing and supporting our solutions now and in the future. Microsoft is investing significantly in the business management software industry. With a published statement of direction for all of our solutions, and 10 years of support (5 years Mainstream Support and 5 years Extended Support), you can purchase with confidence, knowing your solution will be enhanced and supported for years to come by one of the most reliable vendors in the industry.
See how companies using Sage products solved real business problems and benefited from switching to Microsoft Dynamics.
After several years of extraordinary growth, difficulties with the company’s Peachtree accounting software began to emerge, slowing productivity and stifling opportunities for expansion. An evaluation of its critical business needs led National Air Cargo to implement Microsoft Dynamics, which helped boost productivity by 25 percent, reduced the manual reentry of data into other systems, and reduced the amount of time it takes to create and submit invoices and receive customer payment from an average of 120 days to 36 hours.
Before switching to Microsoft Dynamics, building contractor ATS Automation ran its business on an aging version of Peachtree accounting software, various versions of Microsoft Excel, and a few vertical applications. Today, the accounting staff spends 50 percent less time on routine administrative tasks. And everyone has access to up-to-date project data to make better decisions—especially valuable for remote offices and project managers.
With steady annual revenue growth around 20 percent, CTS Cement outgrew its Sage MAS 90 enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Looking toward the future and continued growth, company leaders decided to switch to Microsoft Dynamics.
RMJ Laboratories previously used Sage ERP X3, formerly known as Adonix, but found that the system lacked critical functionality and was difficult and costly to modify. After a thorough search, company leaders opted to migrate to Microsoft Dynamics.
Oughtred Coffee and Tea considered moving to a Sage Accpac ERP solution but ultimately decided on Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 for its familiar user experience and integration with other Microsoft products and technologies that the company was already using..
CH2M Hill was dealing with an internal mix of CRM applications, including SalesLogix, Salesforce.com, and a variety of home-grown sales-opportunity tracking tools which created data silos that made it difficult to gain a comprehensive view of sales opportunities. The company decided to consolidate on Microsoft Dynamics CRM and now benefits from better sales forecasting, easy to use dashboards to track performance, and the familiar and intuitive user interface, which reduces training time and speeds user adoption.
