If you’ve cut your search down to selecting one of the four Microsoft Dynamics ERP products (GP, SL, NAV, and AX), then you really can’t go wrong. Each product carries a solid reputation in the market and has has tens of thousands of users as well the Microsoft brand  and R&D behind them. Let’s take a closer look at each and what they bring to the table:

Microsoft Dynamics GP (Dynamics GP) has superior and the most easy to use financial modules available anywhere – including National Accounts and a great Collections module.  Dynamics GP has some of the strongest, deepest (many input screens available), and best documented web services available as well.

The above screen shows the Integration Manager. This tool  makes integrating, in this case sales order data, a lot easier in GP than in competing products.

With Dynamics SL, you have deep functionality not only in the well-publicized project accounting area but also in the distribution modules – with great integration between project and distribution functionality. You also have access to customization tools that make adding screens and reports as well as customizing screens and reports quite easy.

The menu above shows the strong and deep module options in the Dynamics SL series as well as the ability to export to excel in one click and import data by pasting into the grid.

For those looking for multi-language capabilities, then Dynamics NAV and Dynamics AX will fit the bill. Dynamics NAV, delivers comprehensive business management functionality, from financials to supply chain to manufacturing and more. It connects the many moving parts of an organization, giving you better visibility into and control over what’s going on in your business. And it supports highly specific industries including distribution and manufacturing with powerful solutions created by Microsoft partners. Dynamics NAV is also known for its excellent customization capabilities.

Dynamics AX is the ERP solution for enterprises (larger firms) that provides a purpose-built foundation across multiple industries, along with comprehensive, core ERP functionality for financial, human resources and operations management. It empowers your people to anticipate and embrace change so your business can thrive. And, the product is clearly closing the functionality gaps that existed between larger Tier 1 software vendors.

What are great about Microsoft Dynamics ERP products are the flexibility and possibilities of choice, as well as the available deployment options.  So whether you’re a small to mid-sized business or large enterprise organization, with Microsoft Dynamics ERP products you really can’t go wrong.
