1. "We've heard of ERP solutions but they are only for the big companies and are too complex or expensive."
Do you think ERP software is mostly for the big companies because it's too complex or expensive? Well...you're wrong. Microsoft has an ERP system that can be had for just $40 per user per month!
If you want to stand out from your competition and make every work minute count, I highly suggest you take a look at the eBook 'The Cloud as a Platform'.
2. "We need an integrated solution to manage our entire business that is easy to use, deploy and maintain."
The good news is that you are reading the correct blog post to help with this situation because Microsoft has multiple business management solutions that are capable of this. The bad news is that you most likely don't have one of these erp systems just yet.
Suggested reading: 'Reinvent business productivity with Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Office 365.'
3. "Our existing solution didn't offer enough flexibility and doesn't integrate well with other systems."
The amount of productivity lost from switching between desktop applications is staggering. It's imperative that you implement a business solution that is flexible and integrates well with your other systems. For instance, Microsoft business solutions such as Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations or Dynamics NAV integrate with Excel, Outlook, Word, etc.
4. "We want to move to a cloud-based solution to avoid the need to invest in IT infrastructure, thereby get a solution that can quickly adapt and scale to projected growth."
I'll be frank--times are changing. A lot of organizations just like your want to move to a cloud-based solution to avoid the need to invest in IT infrastructure and get a solution that can quickly adapt and scale to projected growth.
Before you know it, your competitors will have jumped on this bandwagon and increased growth and revenue projections. Don't get left behind Make technology your business advantage.
