Why Microsoft ERP Systems?

Microsoft is a long-standing provider of ERP solutions, with a heritage spanning over 20 years. The popularity of its ERP solutions is attributable to their well-proven ROI and ability to enhance decision-making.

By aggregating live data from finance, operations, and customers, Microsoft ERP systems provide a complete view of an organisation’s operational efficiency and performance. Central to this, financial management functionalities support up-to-the-minute scrutiny of revenue streams, expenditures, and profitability metrics. This empowers CFOs and financial leaders to make informed decisions relating to resource optimisation and budget allocations.

Furthermore, inventory management, supply chain and manufacturing modules offer real-time visibility into inventory levels and supplier performance, providing leaders with the means to ensure operational efficiency.

Additionally, Microsoft ERP Systems incorporate sales CRM functionality. This allows for insights into the pipeline to be factored into finance and operational reporting to give better detail around projected P&L, allowing more strategic decisions around revenue augmentation.

Plus, seamless integration with a spectrum of data analysis tools and business intelligence platforms makes Microsoft ERP solutions a central source of truth for data-driven decision-making within an organisation.
