Find the Right ERP Solution for Your Business

Email | Print

 One of the most important decisions you will make for your business will be choosing the enterprise resource planning (ERP) software that will help propel your business to the next level.  Software alone will not save your business;  it is only a tool. But when you choose the right package that fits your business plan, you can use that tool for heightened success.

 Microsoft offers several ERP solutions and has developed an ERPassessmenttool that helps customers decide which Microsoft Dynamics ERP solution is ideal for them.  The assessment is short and simple, asking only 6 questions before giving you a recommendation.  For example, I told it I was representing a telecommunications company in the US with no international offices, 51-200 employees, not a subsidiary of a larger company, and looking for industry-specific functionality.  From that information, the tool determined I would likely prefer Microsoft Dynamics GP.  As a secondary option, the tool recommended Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

 Why did it choose Dynamics GP?  “Microsoft Dynamics GP simplifies and connects business processes, integrates tightly with familiar Microsoft Office programs, and provides robust reporting and business intelligence tools.”

 After you have completed the tool and received your recommendation, you can click the corresponding links to learn more about the recommended product, check out demos and trials, and chat or email a Microsoft Dynamics professional to discuss your options. 

 This small tool will not answer all of your questions, but it will guide you in the right direction and help you narrow your focus to at least get an idea about the type of ERP solution that best fits your business type, size, market focus, and goals.
