So what exactly is Dynamics 365?

  1. Only start with what you will actually use - The whole application is designed in such a way that individual agendas can be deployed very easily and independently in the future. Starting a business? Choose only those roles, only those agendas (sales, marketing, services, products...) that you really need without having to pay for features you will never use.
  2. Productivity where you need it - The integration of Dynamics 365 and Office 365 connects structured workflows in a flood of unstructured daily agendas. Can you connect a sales quote from your ERP in Outlook without leaving the app? Without the complexity of searching for who you are currently writing to? In Dynamics 365, that's not a problem.
  3. Artificial Intelligence - With Dynamics 365, Microsoft is the only vendor that brings together enterprise data, analytics tools and IoT devices to proactively support the work and decision-making of individual employees. A typical example is a recommendation for Cross-selling to advise a sales rep on creating a sales proposal.
  4. Ready to grow - The system allows its customers to quickly create, change and modify their business processes according to their current needs. And all this without the intervention of the IT department! Customers can easily change their business model using a data model and a flexible platform on which the individual agendas are exposed.
