Microsoft Dynamics is an Enterprise Resource Planning system that is designed to meet the management, financial and planning needs of businesses. Features offered include human resource management, business intelligence, financial management and supply management among others. The software utilizes Microsoft’s Windows and .Net frameworks to provide better integration with existing Microsoft operating systems.
For: small, medium businesses, enterprises
User interface is easy to navigate and mainly designed as an on-premise software but comes with lackluster online functionalities. Integrating it with your existing system require the help of a Microsoft professional for setting up and customizing. However, it provides seamless integration especially for Microsoft-based systems and highly customizable.
In terms of general management and reporting features, the software scores good providing easy access to all important data. All information is stored in servers that can be instantly viewed or create customized reports. This makes quick work of analyzing large amounts of data for business planning purposes.

One of the things that definitely stand out and is quite obvious with using Microsoft Dynamics is its ease of integration with existing Microsoft products. If you’re business relies heavily on the use of Microsoft applications or operating systems, then Microsoft Dynamics could save you the trouble of spending work hours transitioning this new software in your existing system. This however, might require additional license purchases for Microsoft products.
