NOW ENJOY CRM AND ERP TOGETHER WHEN YOU MOVE TO DYNAMICS 365

Are you running Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, 2009, or older?

Microsoft Dynamics 365 is not a total overhaul—it’s based on AX 2012 R3, with a few retail enhancements and a small number of deprecated or deferred features. The jump from older versions will offer significant gains in functionality, but an upgrade from any version has different considerations. Especially if you have completed customizations or enhancements that are now standard in the latest version. Without a doubt, the new version will help you streamline processes, improve productivity, and reduce your long term costs so let Sunrise help you evaluate your options.

Do you need to upgrade Dynamics CRM, NAV, GP, or SL?

Both the Enterprise and Business Editions of Dynamics 365 offer fantastic solutions for Microsoft customers who have already invested in CRM, Navision, Great Plains, or Solomon. The combined CRM and ERP offerings in the cloud with embedded business intelligence offer an affordable, flexible, scalable, and secure solution for your company's future. Let Sunrise help you evaluate your current business processes and identify the new capabilities that Microsoft Dynamics 365 can provide your business. 

AX7 and CRM JOIN FORCES.

Dynamics 365 and the common data model will allow ERP and CRM to work better together, including a long term roadmap for surfacing contextually relevant information across processes right inside of Office 365. By licensing both solutions together, the cost savings and productivity gains are unmatched in the industry. Learn more

Always stay fresh.

With the help of Microsoft Dynamics Lifecycle Services (LCS) and a completely overhauled cloud model, everything from automated updates to code merging and testing is easier than you may be used to. Your employees stay productive and you never have to worry about your organization being out-of-date without a clear upgrade path again. Dynamics 365 lets you run your business on the latest technology — forever. Learn more

Advanced Analytics.

Built-in analytics, enabled by Microsoft Power BI, comes standard for every user and you can securely connect your data with Microsoft Flow, Azure Logic Apps, PowerApps, and the Cortana Intelligence Suite. Having your data more connected than ever makes it easy to create beautiful dashboards, interactive reports, and even natural language voice queries. With insightful visualizations, all levels of the organization will be able to make more informed decisions around financial performance, channel performance, supply planning, sales, marketing, and much more. You can even pull in data from other sources to uncover trends at lightning speed and leverage Azure Machine Learning. Learn more

Give employees their own space.

Workspaces bring tasks and KPI's to life, individualized for each employee to help them answer their top job-related questions. With quick access to features (including fully customizable task guides you can record on the fly) and those gorgeous BI dashboards we mentioned earlier, they will love doing work at cloud speed. And, we have to say, the global search function in the top navigation bar of CRM is hands-down one of the best new features (and we're glad to see a new and improved version in AX7, know called Dynamics 365 Enterprise Edition for Operations).

Secure Mobility.

Dynamics 365 redefines ERP and CRM. By leveraging the elasticity and affordability of the cloud, and a fully browser-based HTML5 client, you can access business-critical information on any device (so long, remote desktop).  Not to mention, Microsoft PowerApps gives your team the power to create any number of enterprise-class mobile apps to mobilize your ERP and CRM data and processes. And, with the backend database running on SQL Azure, you automatically get high availability and disaster recovery services with geo-replication across multiple Azure data centers syncing every five seconds. Learn more

Unify business and commerce.

Dynamics 365 is the unifying solution your employees will want to use because it connects your transactional and productivity systems in the cloud. A familiar Office 365-like user interface will increase user adoption and lower the learning curve. With Skype for Business and deep integrations to Office 365, your employees can take advantage of real-time communication and collaboration, virtually anywhere. And, there is still only one database and business logic under the hood, connected to a common data model across Microsoft cloud solutions, giving you a fully integrated platform to run your entire business, across all channels.
