Microsoft-building-agile-ERP-GP2015With the launch of Microsoft Dynamics GP2015, Microsoft has produced a fabulous new release that offers them a foundation on which to build a truly agile ERP system. Business Analyser sees Financial Reporting going truly mobile; the Workflow engine promises to automate financial processes; Service Based Architecture opens up GP to integrations and there are over 120 additional new features in GP 2015.

This time Microsoft has not only launched a new product in GP2015 but also a new approach to developing and releasing the product. Unlike previous deliveries where customers had to wait months, sometime years for specific features, Microsoft are now asking customers to vote for the features they want the most. You can place your vote or suggestion at:

In Microsoft’s new approach, if features are minor or a “pebble” they will deploy it quickly. If it’s a larger job or a “rock”, it will be scheduled for a larger release but these will be more frequent.

This should see the momentum behind GP2015 escalate and the result should be a better product for all.

Omni-Channel-RetailingCustomers are now approaching retailers from many different fronts; buying from high street stores as well as shopping online and on the move. This changing behaviour is leading to retailers to develop new strategies to satisfy customer demands like ‘Omni Channel Retailing’. According to The Guardian, by 2019, shoppers will pick up £6.5bn of goods from lockers, drive thru and store pickup points, an increase of 82%.

Omni-Channel Retailing is the evolution of multi-channel retailing, but is concentrated more on a seamless approach to the consumer experience through all channels, i.e. mobile devices, PC, brick-and-mortar, direct mail etc. The latest release of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 is equipped with powerful features that support retailers. Here are its top 5 retail empowering features.

Internal Process Automation

Buyers and purchasers plan and purchase products so that a retailer can resell them across various channels. This feature can help the buying and purchasing groups to work and collaborate together. Internal Process Automation ensure the team is aligned and on target to meet deadlines for timely delivery.


Product Families Management

Product Families can increase selling effectiveness with its ability to bundle products and recommended related products. From senior management to sales assistants, everyone can benefit from this feature which can be configured to give desired results. Offers can also be bundled together with related products to offer tailored selling pricelists.  


Sales Hierarchies

Everyone is interested in sales figures. Hierarchical Views provide a bird’s eye view of the required data in blocks which can be further expanded. Sales Managers can see how information is grouped together by viewing accounts, products or hierarchical charts, whilst team members can view how an account is performing in revenue and drill into the details. Similarly, Section Managers can see who is working on the account and share this information with other teams as well as view supplier account details like credit limit.


Seamless Customer Service

Providing exceptional customer service is now the expected norm in retailing which depends on repeated business from customers. Microsoft Social Listening can be used by the Marketing team to track products, brands, competitors and campaigns globally and in real-time to gain a true understanding of customers across the social web. Location filters in Dynamics CRM can further narrow the data set to see posts from specific countries or regions. Customer Service can easily manage and update real-time information to provide swift response to customer requests. 

Guided Sales Processes

Guided Sales Processes give retailers a holistic view of their customers. Dynamics CRM’s enhanced branching logic and automation of business processes across all devices, makes handling manageable for both the Sales and Customer Service teams. Retailers can now configure a single business process flow to sell products or services which after a common qualification stage splits into two branches, one specific to products and the other for services.

Alvaro-Sobrinho-African-Science-TechnologyThe continent of Africa has been receiving investment and drawing in global trade on a monumental scale due to its rapid growth and independence in the fields of technology, science and business. This growth, which is recorded at an annual rate of 6%, has come about by the higher standard of education, and effective leaders who are committed to taking Africa forward to cutting-edge success. One of these is Alvaro Sobrinho, an Angolian philanthropist, investor and hugely respected business leader who is on a mission to ensure that Africa will reach the highest limits. Sobrinho is known for delivering business lectures at the Stock Exchange in London, the General Assembly of the UN, and the Royal Institute of International Affairs. He acts for Banco Valor Angola, as the Executive Chairman, which has prospered under his watch. Sobrinho's astronomic investments within Africa include: telecommunications, media, construction, food and agriculture. He strives for the scientific independence of Africa through the charity Planet Earth Institute, for which he presides as chairman, is a Fellow of the Gavi Alliance which is organised by Bill Gates, and a member of the Duke of Edinburgh’s World Fellowship. He is also a shareholder in the Portuguese football organisation: Sporting Clube de Portugal. 

Recently in London, the Special Advisor to Ban Ki-Moon, Amina Mohammed, discussed planning for post 2015. She referred to the scientific centres which are not producing optimally, and stated the need for strong investment in the scientific and academic fields within Africa in order to achieve a ground breaking level of excellence. Sobrinho envisions that Africa will achieve scientific independence and have its independent research and development. e-learning has been very helpful in this regard, and productivity is on the increase: scientists have already helped to escalate military might by designing complex state-of-the-art drones. The amount of scientific research done by African scientists is rapidly increasing, and will achieve highly successful long-running results for the region. The Development Community of South Africa pulls in an estimated $11 billion of annual trading, and it is thought that this massive figure may well go up threefold if business policies are made smarter and more consumer friendly. President Jacob Zuma of South Africa has backed the construction of a free trade pan-Africa region which would be able to promote more than $2.6 trillion of trade. In 2014, an excess of $200 billion was recorded for the trade carried out between China and Africa, confirming China as the prime business partner overseas. Another boost to the African economy was the announcement by India that it intends to take trading with Africa in 2015 up to more than $100 billion, a substantial increase from the $70 recorded for 2014.

In summary, the African continent has enormous potential in the fields of science and technology, but it has to engage and move forward to break headway and take responsibility for African development and success in these areas. All things considered, the future looks bright.
