7 Reasons You Must Upgrade to the NEW Dynamics AX

The new Microsoft Dynamics AX has helped overcome the challenges faced by Dynamics AX ERP users in the retail, distribution, manufacturing, services, and public sectors enabling them to make smarter decisions faster with access to the real-time insights on any device and in any place. Not to mention, it is the first Cloud enabled product version to date.

Now let’s take a deeper dive into the new, exciting features of the most awaited and latest version of Microsoft Dynamics AX to see how it will help your business grow at its own pace.

Is Dynamics AX or Dynamics NAV Better for SMBs?

Microsoft’s Dynamics enterprise resource planning (ERP) software has become an integral part of business today. It provides businesses with the tools they need to connect and manage their people and processes as well as with the insight to make smarter decisions. Dynamics is designed to easily adapt as businesses grow and business needs change, with Dynamics NAV for small-to-midsized businesses (SMBs) or Dynamics AX for enterprise, global organizations.

Each new version of Microsoft Dynamics AX delivers a variety of features and functions that are much more powerful and faster in their performance, but are usually accompanied with greater requirements. Given this, the newer versions of Dynamics AX may seem too powerful and complex for smaller companies to upgrade to and maintain.

This puts SMBs with an outdated Dynamics AX solution in a rather difficult situation—on the one hand, upgrading to the newer versions of AX may be too large and complicated, while on the other hand, remaining on an older version of AX could lead them to deterioration, a loss of competitiveness and a reliance upon an unsupported Microsoft product (e.g. AX 2009 & earlier versions).

As suspected, in these situations SMBs will naturally begin to look for other opportunities to enhance their ERP capabilities.
