By | 2017-07-24T15:46:18+00:00 July 24th, 2017|Dynamics 365|

Microsoft has updated the architecture and features of Vendor Collaboration in Update 7. There is now a menu module, workspace, and forms to support the setup and actions available.

For this process document, we will use the term "Internal user" to refer to a Buyer or other user employed by a company that is using D365FOE. The term "Vendor user" is used to refer to a Contact at a supplier that is authorized for limited access to Vendor Collaboration, for the purpose of reviewing and accepting/rejecting Purchase Orders.

7 Game-changing Cloud Trends for Small to Mid-Size Businesses

By | 2017-07-10T16:39:51+00:00 June 5th, 2017|Cloud, Cloud Clarity, Cloud Security, Dynamics 365, ERP|

Business management merely ten years ago is nigh unrecognizable compared to how we do business today. For starters, mobile devices alone have changed how we interact with customers and manage operations. But with the rise of cloud-based applications, businesses are playing an entirely new game. These changes are not fads, they are most definitely trends. Many of these trends can significantly impact your business successes. Microsoft identified seven of these trends as truly game-changers for small to mid-size businesses. Is your business ready to adopt these trends and give your company an additional competitive advantage? Keeping pace with a mobile workforce. Having access anywhere to relevant business data (inventory, account status, purchase history) is the new normal. Your customers don't demand it; they expect it. IT moves to the background. Businesses no longer have to make decisions based upon current technology in [...]

Top 10 Reasons to Replace Your Accounting Software

By | 2017-07-10T16:39:59+00:00 June 5th, 2017|Cloud, Cloud Clarity, Dynamics 365|

As your business grows in both size and complexity, the software tools that once supported you may now be holding you back. As a result, you now have to make an important decision: replace your accounting software or continue your current path. If you stay where you are, you risk unsatisfying your customers, losing sales, and falling behind the competition. If you recognize any of the warning signs below, courtesy of Microsoft, it's time to make a change. Your accounting software’s older than the college grads applying for jobs with your business. If you have fond memories of Y2K-proofing your current accounting system, it’s clearly past its prime. Today’s digital native workforce expects technology to support how they want to work, not limit functionality. You are losing sales to competitors with inferior products. It doesn’t matter if you’re the best [...]

How the Cloud Levels the Playing Field for Small and Mid-Size Businesses

By | 2017-07-10T16:40:11+00:00 June 5th, 2017|Cloud, Cloud Clarity, Cloud Security, CRM, Dynamics 365, ERP, Office 365|

Taking your business 100% mobile is no longer a dream for the future. Businesses today require mobility to be successful. Mobile devices are not simply part of our everyday personal lives; they do nearly everything a desktop or laptop can do, all in the palms of our hands. Startup and growing businesses need mobility now more than ever to compete with bigger, older companies, give workers the tools they need, and most importantly, better connect with customers. Mobility doesn't mean that the company allows its employees to bring mobile devices to the workplace. Companies need a mobility strategy to connect employees, data, and business systems in a way that pushes sales growth, reduces costs, keeps customers happy, and outpaces the competition. Fundamentals of a Winning Mobile Solution Small and mid-size businesses have better access to mobile solutions than ever [...]

Transforming Relationships with Customers, Trading Partners, and Competitors in the Context of Industry 4.0

By | 2017-06-20T19:48:24+00:00 May 18th, 2017|Azure, Chemical Manufacturing, Dynamics 365, ERP, Industry 4.0, Manufacturing, Process Manufacturing|

When you take your Industry 4.0 initiative to customer relationships and the product portfolio that you offer, you benefit from your sharpened focus on customer value and the insights gleaned in your proof-of-concept project. Until Industry 4.0 becomes the de facto standard in the specialty chemicals industry, you can enjoy the distinction of digital leadership. That gives you a unique position to launch product and service innovations that rely on the strategic, connected use of digital technology. Own digital leadership The transition from an internal focus of Industry 4.0 to turning the spotlight to customer relationships can be gradual. The operations of many production companies in the specialty chemicals industry are similar to their customers’, and there will often be significant commonalities in the challenges businesses need to address. If, for instance, you successfully use live data from the internet of [...]

Dynamics 365’s Digital Landscape Offers New Ways to Move Your Business Forward

By | 2017-05-17T17:16:31+00:00 May 9th, 2017|Cloud, CRM, Dynamics 365, ERP, Office 365|

No matter the industry, companies within are looking for ways to better improve their relationships with their customers, whether it's from reshoring or simply updating their business systems to better serve their customers. Many of these companies already have a type of CRM or ERP software system in place, but these are often older systems that are siloed, overly complex, and quite outdated. To free businesses from these constraints, Microsoft developed Dynamics 365 to connect companies to all parts of their operations seamlessly via the cloud. Since this system does operate through the cloud, businesses can start with as little as they need for operations and grow as the business grows. Microsoft reports that since they rolled out Dynamics 365 in July 2016, they've had HP, AccuWeather, Ecolab, Helsana, and the Renault Sports Formula One Team "transform their businesses" with Dynamics 365. Of [...]
