The five best things about Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations
We'll discuss the five best things about Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations!
Although the name of this ERP has changed multiple times over the years, all you really need to know is: if you’ve got a small to medium sized enterprise, or larger, Fusion5 can provide you with all the advice you could ever need to decide if Microsoft’s ‘large’ ERP offering is a good fit for you.
Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations is the evolved, web and cloud-based Microsoft ERP that replaces the primarily desktop-based application, Microsoft AX. So, here’s what’s great about it:
Finance & Operations seamlessly integrates with the Microsoft ecosystem, like the Office 365, Power Platform, Copilot, Azure, and Dataverse, plus access to the Microsoft partner network. If you’re already using Microsoft products, you’ll enjoy the familiarity of the user-interface (UI) – making it easier to use, even without extensive ERP experience.
2. Predictive AI capabilities
Finance & Operations leverages AI, machine learning, and intelligent automation to learn from your historical financial data and give you accurate AI-derived predictions on things like future cashflow, potential late payments, or even to create intelligent budget proposals without all the manual fiddling around.
3. Compliance & security
Microsoft's global compliance capabilities helps ensure you meet local and international financial regulations across multiple entities. And, deploying Finance & Operations in the cloud with Azure means you get top-tier 24/7 technical support, including built-in disaster recovery in case your operations are disrupted, accidentally deleted, or data corruption.
4. Scalability & flexibility
You can easily scale up or down by eliminating the concern for how infrastructure is being hosted or maintained, by moving it to the cloud. Finance & Operations seamlessly links up with other Dynamics 365 apps to suit a wide range of business and industry specific requirements, so you only pay for what you need.
5. Always up-to-date
Being in the cloud means your ERP can receive regular updates including new features and functionality, which means no more expensive upgrades every few years! You’re also in full control of how you receive those updates – through early access, on your own schedule, or automatically so you can set and forget.
