Islands of Data with Microsoft Dynamics
At one time your company was smaller than it is. Then it grew.
So you added a spreadsheet. And another. And another. Then you needed an Access Database. Maybe two. Then a separate system to handle inventory, or maybe production. Perhaps it was vendor tracking.
And for a while, everything was fine – data integration was not an issue until the one spreadsheet needed to be updated from the other spreadsheet, or the person who made the database left the company. The small software package you bought is no longer supported, and people have to enter the same data in multiple places just to keep things consistent. It may have worked for awhile, but now mistakes are occurring more frequently. Customers are leaving for your competitors, and new business opportunities are turning away because your costing figures were off and you really should have agreed to the terms. Now you need automated data integration.
The Data Integration Value of Microsoft Dynamics
This is the point where you start to see the value of moving to a data system like Microsoft Dynamics. Microsoft Dynamics brings all your islands of data into one integrated system, and makes that information visible to those who need it. Areas such as accounting, inventory, customer service, purchasing, sales, and even production can benefit from data integration – eliminating duplicate data entry and delays in getting the information to the right people.
The result? Data integration results in fewer unplanned issues. Fewer customer satisfaction issues. Employees work more efficiently because they can concentrate on their tasks rather than on finding the right information. Management can focus on strategic decision making rather than fighting fires.
And the best part? Thanks to data integration your business can continue to grow, with Microsoft Dynamics keeping pace.
