Dynamics 365: Better together with Office 365

Software solutions for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) come in many shapes and sizes, but when choosing the right one for your circumstances, cost-effectiveness and functionality must always be top of your tick-list. The reason Dynamics 365 is such a popular choice for SMBs is that it is highly adaptable and configurable, and the way it integrates with the cloud-based software suite Office 365 is a particularly good example.

As one of Microsoft's flagship products with years of experienced development behind it, the range of applications that are available through Office 365 covers the whole spectrum of a modern business’ management needs.

ERP, CRM and HR tools

The secret behind a successful business software package is quite simple - it needs to cover a lot of bases and do it well. With Dynamics 365, the functionality is extensive and you can configure it to make the application work exactly the way you need it to.

Features and functionality go hand in hand when it comes to meeting the needs of a modern business, and the range of apps included with Dynamics 365 provide ERP solutions for accounts and finance, various CRM modules which can be purchased and used together or separately, and the powerful HR tool, Talent.

Office 365 apps also include famous Microsoft tools such as Outlook, OneDrive, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, SharePoint, Teams and many more, meaning that there is plenty of flexibility to allow you to integrate practices, processes and workflow.

Keep up to date

Both Dynamics 365 and Office 365 work on a subscription model so you always get the latest apps and updates. Not only does this mean you have all the new tools at your disposal, it's great for peace of mind when it comes to cybersecurity too, as patches and fixes for any problems or vulnerabilities are added to both the desktop and online versions as the need arises.

The cloud

As a fully fledged cloud-based software suite, Office 365 offers the very best in ease of access and functionality and the way it combines with Dynamics 365 means that continuity and familiarity make it easy for all employees to adapt to.

A cross-platform approach means that integration never becomes an issue, as all of the devices your business currently uses can make full use of Office 365 features – which means that Mac, iPad, iPhone and Android users can also take full advantage of what’s on offer and not just those on a Windows device.
