Small and mid-size businesses are adopting cloud business solutions in record numbers. Cloud deployment gives SMBs the ability to power their business with software that is affordable, flexible and accessible anytime anywhere. Microsoft Dynamics products like Dynamics GP are popular among growing small businesses because they offer the power of enterprise resource planning with a familiar look and feel to the software they already use. It’s fast to deploy and users require very little training. But that can be said for the entire family of Dynamics products including GP, AX, NAV and SL. So in order to know if Dynamics GP is right for you, the best thing to do is to look at the differences between Microsoft Dynamics products.
So to help you do that here is a quick guide to help you compare AX, NAV, SL and GP.
Microsoft Dynamics AX
For an organization on the large-scale side of the mid-size market, core ERP functionality with the ability to fit the unique needs of the business is vital. Whether they are a manufacturer, distributor, retailer or even in the public sector, Dynamics AX enables them to operate across departments, locations, languages and currencies. This makes it the ideal choice for a alrger organization looking to replace multiple legacy systems and combine them into a single ERP instance.
Microsoft Dynamics NAV
Whether an organization is a start-up with unique processes, or in a niche industry with very specific needs they need a business management solution that is simple to customize and simple to integrate with all of their business solutions. Microsoft Dynamics NAV delivers core ERP functionality some distributors and manufacturers have found to best suit their needs.
Microsoft Dynamics SL
Organizational leaders know that things can change over night, and one project gone wrong can sink an otherwise great year. With Dynamics SL, some project-oriented SMBs find the project management functionality they need to keep their people on track and make sure that goals are met on time. Dynamics SL delivers core financial management and deeper insight into the progress of projects.
Microsoft Dynamics GP
