Many existing companies use ERP software to store both internal and external information across their entire organization in one place. This includes accounting, human resources, sales, marketing and more. When this data is located in one place, it becomes easily accessible by all employees, which in turn makes the flow of information within the business more efficient and the task of managing connections easier. This shared database typically operates real time, which ensures all information is as up to date as possible. It is also easy to install and get up and running. These systems typically use a database to host information and are able to operate with different types of computer hardware and network configurations.

ERP systems have been around for years. Originally they were used solely for back office functions, such as accounting or human resources. Then later the integration of front office functions came, such as Customer Resource Management (CRM) or ecommerce solutions like what we provide.

Microsoft Dynamics ERP is a type of this software and features four primary products, AX, GP, NAV and SL. These solutions have been implemented by both midsize companies as well as divisions of larger organizations. Benefits specific to using a Microsoft Dynamics ERP include:
  • Connection of information across the entire company, both internally and externally.
  • Readily accessible financial information and reports.
  • Management of routine tasks, freeing up time for employees.
  • Clear visibility into factors surrounding your company’s performance, such as profitability or areas that could use improvement.

These benefits and more can all be experienced once your company has implemented an ERP system, such as Microsoft Dynamics ERP.

In some situations, additional solutions will be necessary to make your system complete. These add-ons provide additional functions not offered by your chosen ERP. Azox, for example, is an ISV offering add-on ecommerce solutions as well as online bill pay and check/credit card processingfor Microsoft Dynamics GP. Azox epayment solutions will soon be compatible with Microsoft Dynamics NAV and CRM as well.
