Ok, we will tell you.

It’s that Microsoft’s business management software solutions known as Microsoft Dynamics have sold over 4 million CRM solutions, and there are 43,000 companies using Microsoft Dynamics GP which is ideal for mid-market customers in the financial services and a staggering 102,000 companies worldwide using Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

Why is this a secret? Well, typically when most CFO’s and CIO’s think of Microsoft they tend to think of the operating systems rather than the ecosystem of Microsoft Dynamics Partners that has been developed to deliver these incredibly powerfully ERP solutions globally.

Here is list of three things to consider when choosing an ERP software solution:

  1. Roadmap – what is the future of the product? Will it continue to be developed in future years. Microsoft invests $9bn in Research & Development year on year to ensure that each Dynamics solutions has a long development roadmap
  1. ERP Integration – will it integrate to your existing systems? This is a key question to ask yourself when determining which ERP software solution is right for you.  A Microsoft Dynamics solutions will also integrate seamlessly with your operating systems and Microsoft Office packages.
