You’re a financial management professional and these days it’s unlikely you’re expected to deliver solely on the traditional business functions you trained for.
While you’re still expected to cover the basics such as financial reporting, financial planning, capital budgeting and structuring there’s an increasing expectation that you’ll “add value” to your organisation as a whole.
In order to meet this expectation, you’ll need a cross-functional, end-to-end view of your organisation’s business activities. Unfortunately, this is where legacy ERP applications, the very tools originally conceived to help you perform more efficiently, may be holding you back.
If your Legacy ERP solution doesn’t provide you with a single source of financial reporting across your entire organisation in real-time, you have a problem.
After all, how can you be expected to add substantial value to the business if you can’t access the very the financial intelligence you need to do so?
Dynamics 365 Business Central works smarter. It eradicates the information silos inherent in many organisations’ legacy ERP applications.
By migrating to Dynamics 365 Business Central you’re leveraging an innovative application capable of delivering the critical insights necessary to make informed financial decisions across your entire operation.
And as the UK’s leading Microsoft Dynamics 365 Partner, IT Lab can help you plan, manage and deliver this migration quickly and seamlessly.
Here are some key benefits users are enjoying by deploying the application in financial management:
With Dynamics 365 Business Central, you empower employees by providing them with a user-friendly interface and familiar tools that encourage them to do their best work.
Deep integration between Office 365 and Dynamics 365 Business Central lets users process transactions seamlessly in Outlook which is linked to your core finance application.
Dynamics 365 Business Central includes big data, advanced analytics and IoT functions as standard, all delivered through a SaaS model via the Microsoft Azure platform.
The platform offers total cloud vision of infrastructure, applications and data with trusted security, high availability and solid disaster recovery functionality.
Upgrades are taken care of seamlessly in the cloud, saving your organisation time and effort and delivering a much lower total cost of ownership as a result.
According to an independent analysis by Nucleus Research, an average Dynamics 365 deployment returns an impressive $16.97 for every dollar spent.
This is significantly higher than the averages for ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) at $7.23 and CRM (Customer Relationship Management) at $8.71.
Nucleus reported that companies leveraging Microsoft’s investments in cloud increased productivity and revenues while reducing costs.
