Keys to Success in Microsoft Dynamics

Continuing in our third week of our infographic series, (see one and two here) we decided to save the best for last. A few years back in some of our earlier Journyx product updates, we heard from a good handful of our customers that they wanted us to integrate more fully with Microsoft Dynamics, and especially Microsoft Dynamics GP. Well, we heard your requests and made it happen. Today, we fully integrate with Microsoft Dynamics GP Project Accounting, as well as AX and SL.

Then, this last March we went to Microsoft Convergence 2014 in Atlanta and were completely wowed by the Microsoft Dynamics community. The VAR’s and ISV’s alike seemed to have a cohesive partnership that would make a Texas football team jealous. You can read all about what we learned here. It was incredible; we went back to Austin having gleaned much more knowledge than we had intended.

And here’s the thing, it’s absolutely all about the implementation. Many companies try to take it on themselves, and fail, or hire an inexperienced VAR and find similarly dull results. In fact, according to an MSDynamicsWorld.com article titled, “New ERP report notes implementation challenges, cloud hurdles“, “72 percent of projects have exceeded their planned durations, and 66 percent of respondent organizations have received less than 50 percent of the measurable benefits they anticipated”.So what did we do with this new-found info? We compiled data from the best sources – including articles from MSDynamicsWorld.com and ERPSoftwareBlog.com – and even interviewed VARs for their thoughts. What we found was that the Microsoft Community is absolutely flourishing – with NAV in the lead with 102,000 companies using the product and GP rounding closely behind in 2nd place with 47,000 companies.

See for yourself; check out the infographic below or PDF download. Remember, it’s all about the implementation and getting it right the first time. Since the Dynamics community is so tightly knit, there are plenty of great resources to help you find the right VAR to get the implementation of your ERP system done well.
