Top Reasons to Purchase a Business Solution from Microsoft:

 

A Solution That Drives and Supports Your Business Growth

Does your business have a vision for the future? If so, you don’t want to let systems hold you back. Microsoft Dynamics is a solution that supports and propels your business goals and overall growth. It easily accommodates new processes and additional lines of business, and it scales to meet higher demands, without sacrificing performance or incurring major increases to your original technology investment—or your payroll. The right solution can help grow your business in three important ways:

 

  • Adapting to your changing requirements. Does your growth plan include starting up or acquiring new operations? You’ll want an ERP system that can be quickly and easily extended to include them so that you maintain an end-to-end view of your business as it grows. How about international expansion? Choose an ERP solution that supports multiple languages and currencies out-of-the-box. Will growth lead you to deploy new line-of-business applications created by third-party developers? The right ERP solution will support easy integration.
  • Saving money. Powerful ERP capabilities can help you streamline business processes and improve productivity across your business.
    Reduce inventory levels and days sales outstanding, for example. Cut down on manual data entry and increase inventory turns. Do more with less: take on increased business without comparable increases in payroll. Actions like these improve cash flow, freeing up cash to fund growth.
  • Helping you focus on the business of your business. The right ERP solution will require less attention from your IT people, freeing them up for projects that drive growth. Managers across your company, wherever they’re located, can have convenient, 24/7 access to accurate, consistent, timely information to support the collaboration and decision making that drive growth.

Customer Story

Established more than 240 years ago in 1771, esteemed Savile Row tailor Gieves & Hawkes currently holds three royal warrants. It understands the importance of customer service and customer loyalty. Today, Gieves & Hawkes has 14 outlets in the United Kingdom (U.K.) and the Republic of Ireland, and around 100 more worldwide. The company’s existing system—consisting of a range of software that had been accumulated over time—was expensive to maintain, and difficult to update and integrate. When staff eventually got the information they were looking for, they couldn’t be certain that it was up-to-date or correct. The system was holding Gieves & Hawkes back.

“Trying to get new functionality to work with our existing system was a frustrating, expensive experience. We needed fast, accurate information throughout the business, and we needed more control—from the shop floor to the warehouse—to help us save money and improve our customer service.

It’s great. Rich data is now available to store staff at the point of sale, giving them the tools to provide better customer service,”

–       Sam Thompson, IT Manager, Gieves & Hawkes
