In the article from the ERP Software Blog partnership, you can read the difference between some of the Microsoft Dynamics ERP products from Gordon Macdonald, who is faced with the task of differentiating Microsoft’s four products not only from competitors, but also from each other. This is a pertinent topic indeed, as businesses in the market for a new ERP system may be paralyzed by available choices. We try to further clarify in 300 words.
Dynamics AX – A true large-scale, comprehensive enterprise ERP product, promoted as one that can go head-to-head with the Oracles and SAPs of the world. AX is more sophisticated (and, by extension, complicated) than the rest of the Dynamics suite, as it is designed to handle complex, global operations.
Dynamics NAV – Best suited for complex small-to-midsize businesses that do not necessarily require the sophistication of AX. NAV still offers dimensional setup and analysis, and may be a good choice for companies with significant international business, particularly in Europe: its roots as a European product are evident in its look and feel.
Dynamics SL – This is Microsoft’s SMB solution with a specific focus on project-based companies. As Macdonald explains, the “small-to-midsized” area is between 25-250 “knowledge users.” SL offers unique capabilities to manage and evaluate projects.
Dynamics GP – GP occupies the space between an accounting system and a full-fledged ERP system. This is also aimed toward the SMB space, capable of handling manufacturing, distribution, and service operations while fitting within an SMB’s budget.
GraVoc is proud to be one of few partners in New England who offers all four Dynamics ERP products, and will help you find the best one for your business.
