Considering that the whole world is working remotely, on-time access to several applications, validated and updated data, on-the-go access, and security assurance has become essential more than ever. The downside to this is that every small and mid-sized business is retiring because of tech limitations. However, there is still a solution for this – Dynamics 365 Implementation.

Dynamics 365 is a cloud-based platform that businesses all over the world have started using for a better and seamless connection. Are you still using Microsoft Dynamics AX for your business? Well then, we believe that you must have noticed a few points by now. It’s time that you move from Dynamics AX to Microsoft Dynamics 365. However, we know, before you jump on the bandwagon and make this bid decision, you’d want to understand the difference between both these platforms. Being Microsoft Partners in Pakistan, we have been helping businesses make this big move and can tell you every difference we’ve noticed. To know them all, keep on reading!

How is Dynamics 365 Implementation different from Dynamics AX?

Dynamics AX and Microsoft Dynamics 365 Implementation are significantly different. Yes, there’s a lot more difference other than their names. Right from a big change in design to the interface and more integration options to top security features – Microsoft Dynamics 365 offers countless advantages over Microsoft Dynamics AX; everything is improved and updated. Going deeper into their differences, here’s why we suggest our clients take the plunge and make a move;

Improved Interface

The brand-new layout of Microsoft Dynamics 365 is seamless, aims to enhance the user experience, and also encourages collaborations with other users.

Plus, when our team provides implementation services to clients switching from Dynamics AX to Dynamics 365, they customize the interface according to their preferences and requirements.

High-grade Security

The other difference we came across was that Dynamics 365 helped us strengthen the overall security for our client – All thanks to its cloud-based applications that guarantee a secure experience. On top of that, Microsoft itself also monitors the counter-attacks and threats that a user receives.

Automated and Regular Updates

We usually come across businesses that are looking forward to an upgrade in Dynamics AX. Technically speaking, that’s a waste of time when there’s another cool boy in town – Dynamics 365.

By moving to Dynamics 365, you won’t have to wait for years for a new upgrade or a brand-new version to access the latest features. It is continuously developing. And every update is automatically installed once our team implements Dynamics 365 for you.

Extra Flexibility

Whenever our team implements Dynamics 365 for a client, we have them back after a while for feedback on how well is it working. One major difference we analyzed after they responded is that Dynamics 365 is more flexible as compared to Dynamics AX.

So yes, when our team suggests you to go for its new licensing model while switching, don’t think twice. You’ll be saving time and money on the device licenses, along with utilizing enhanced features and functionalities.

Comprehensive Integrations

Considering that Microsoft Dynamics 365 is cloud-based, extensive integration possibilities with other platforms are guaranteed. And for that, you can trust our team. They have the expertise to integrate Microsoft Dynamics 365 seamlessly with Microsoft’s other products like Office 365, Power BI, CRM application, and other business applications too. Unfortunately, if you stay on Dynamics AX, such integrations won’t be your cup of tea any time soon. Now is the time, SWITCH!

Better Accessibility

Our clients tell us that this is perhaps the most prominent benefit they got when they switched to Dynamics 365. Considering that it is a cloud-based platform, you can access it from every kind of device. Regardless of wherever you are in the world. As long as your device is connected to the internet, it will work seamlessly. Though still, if at some point you face some difficulty, team Xcentric will be there to assist you 24/7.

Lower Ownership Cost

Is there someone who doesn’t want to save some extra bucks? Everyone does, we know. What if we told you that switching to Dynamics 365 also reduces the costs of automatic up-gradation, management services, and hardware investments? YES, it does. And the cherry on top is that our implementation services are also very affordable. All set to switch? Congratulations, you are about to hit two birds with one stone!

Familiar Applications for Advanced Efficiency

Even though there are lots of differences between the two platforms, their functions remain the same. Hence, your team, who you trained at the time of Microsoft Dynamics AX Implementation, will be able to work seamlessly on Dynamics 365 too. Thus, contributing to a more productive workforce.
