Technology continues to revolutionise the way we interact and connect, and the pace of change shows no sign of slowing. So it’s little wonder that many senior executives are left striving to minimise the gap between ever-changing business demands, and the capabilities of their current ERP systems. The situation can feel as if you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place: do you invest valuable time and resources trying to improve the system you have? Or do you wade through the many ERP systems on the market, searching for the right solution for your organisation?
Without expert advice, weighing up the risk-benefit ratio of any new business system can be a daunting prospect. Even more so when you add in concerns around the future value of your investment: will a particular solution have the agility to grow and evolve with your business? Or, in a few years’ time will you once again be plaster-fixing a system that’s failing to keep pace with new business demands? It’s easy to see why some companies opt to struggle-on with inadequate legacy systems, but there is a way forward.
Taking the Hard Out
When it comes to choosing the right ERP solution for your business, the team at Endeavour has done most of the hard work for you. With our industry expertise and experience, we’ve carefully selected two of the most impressive ERP solutions on the market: Microsoft Dynamics AX for our larger clients, and Greentree for medium sized clients. We’ll be exploring Greentree at a later date, but today let’s take a closer look at Dynamics AX, the powerful, agile ERP solution designed with the future in mind.
Organisations are often surprised at just how quickly Dynamics AX can transform their business. But with incredible levels of integration and a familiar, easy-to-use interface, this intuitive ERP solution actively encourages speedy adoption – rapidly empowering people to work faster, smarter and to make more informed business decisions. From private businesses to the public sector, today Dynamics AX is helping organisations around the world to increase efficiency and become more connected, dynamic and future-focused.
With its flexible architecture, and easy-to-implement updates, Dynamics AX is designed to accommodate and adapt to future business change as it occurs, and nowhere is this more apparent than in the latest release. AX 2012 R3 includes a host of new modules, cloud service opportunities and companion apps designed to empower anytime-anywhere engagement and deliver vital insights into evolving customer needs. But perhaps the most attractive aspect of Dynamics AX is that Microsoft continues to make huge investments in new releases and updates – in effect, future-proofing the application against an increasingly changeable business environment.
So what does the future hold? Well, Microsoft is already committed to a web-based delivery for Dynamics AX, with future iterations set to deliver full access to all users, regardless of where they might be or what device they happen to be using. It’s all part of Microsoft’s ‘anywhere, anytime’ philosophy that will see interfaces becoming increasingly mobile responsive and intuitive, with the flexibility to fit every screen or form factor.
Microsoft is dedicated to a ‘cloud-first, mobile-first’, but understands that for most organisations the transition to the cloud is likely to be a phased, on-going journey. And so, to help them through the transition, Dynamics AX will be available in a choice of deployment methods, with full Microsoft support for cloud, on-premise and even hybrid scenarios.
A Bright, Dynamic Future
With Microsoft’s continuing investment, this flexible and agile ERP solution is perfectly placed to stay ahead of the curve today, while poised to embrace the business demands of tomorrow. At Endeavour, we believe the future is looking very bright for Dynamics AX and for its current and future users.
