7 Strategic Ways to Grow Your Business beyond Accounting Software

You’ve built your business using your existing accounting software; however, as your business grows, you’ve likely reached a tipping point where the very tools that supported your business are now hindering your ability to act with agility and insight. Whether its missing functionality, has user or database limitations, or is simply unable to keep a mobile workforce productive—the signs are clear that your continued growth depends on making a change.

Evaluating, purchasing, and implementing a new enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution doesn’t have to break the bank or distract you from business at hand. In fact, a business solution from Microsoft brings everything you need to run a better business and make your people more productive. Microsoft Dynamics ERP on Microsoft Azure, combined with Office 365, is a complete solution that keeps your business going and growing. View the infographic “7 Strategic Ways to Grow Your Business,” and learn how a business solution from Microsoft can help businesses grow without growing pains. A business solution from Microsoft offers:

1. Visibility: Disparate systems and stand-alone business processes require people to piece together data in order to see the big picture. With a business solution from Microsoft, you and your team can have a 360 degree view of your business. Built-in business intelligence and robust reporting features get you closer to your data and puts data into a context you can use to make swift business decisions.

2. Mobility: Many key employees spend time out of the office meeting with prospects, customers, or suppliers. Stay connected virtually any time, on any device with real-time access to the data and information you need to be productive from the office, at home, or on the road.

3. Productivity: Entry-level, accounting software often works independently, leading to redundant data entry and time-consuming data validation. A business solution from Microsoft offers time-saving integration and swift access to all of your business data from a single solution. Easy-to-use, personalized interfaces makes tasks easier and frees up time that can be better spent on customers and driving business growth.

No Better Time to Buy – Microsoft Dynamics Price Change 16 Jan 2016

Microsoft Dynamics AX, Microsoft Dynamics GP, and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Module Based Licensing and Business Ready Licensing price changes – effective January 2016


Microsoft has announced that it is realigning Microsoft Dynamics NAV, CRM & AX user prices across versions and licensing models effective 1 January 2016, resulting in a price increase on the additional users you might need in the future. So, if you think that you will need more users in the next 6 to 12 months, there is no better time to buy those users before the prices go up on 1 January 2016.

This change will not impact the enhancement plan cost of users you have licensed prior to 1 January 2016, subject to the Customer Services and Support Plan Policy.

Also, as you might recall, Microsoft launched Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 in October 2012 with Perpetual Licensing – a new simplified licensing model with one edition, one functionality pack, and two user types. We would like to take this opportunity to tell you why existing customers are upgrading to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016. If you are interested, I can tell you about the favorable upgrade conditions you might be entitled to as a customer with an active maintenance plan.
