 Top Reasons to Purchase a Business Solution from Microsoft:

Technology That Transforms the Way You Work and Connect

These days, being "connected" doesn't mean the same thing it did just a few years ago. The opportunity to use technology to interact at any time, in any place, is changing the way your people work and how customers want to connect and interact.

Microsoft Dynamics helps transform the way your people do business with a solution that works the way they want to use it-over the web, through a SharePoint portal, or using a traditional desktop computer. With Microsoft Dynamics, your employees can communicate through the tools and channels they're used to-such as instant messaging, email, voice, and presence-from within familiar applications. And remote staff members have the device flexibility they expect, so they can work across different browsers and all types of mobile devices to be productive wherever they are.

And the impact is potentially huge for your business. With these tools, your people can have more timely communications with customers, suppliers, and other business partners, with the assurance that every single interaction will have greater context and insight.

Customer Story

Chicago-based Dutch Farms has 160 employees and distributes a private-label line of dairy products and eggs as well as a range of refrigerated and frozen foods. After exhausting the capabilities of its aging, UNIX-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, the company realized that it needed a modern solution with comprehensive and integrated functionality to keep up with growth and the needs of a dynamic, highly competitive market. Since deploying Microsoft Dynamics ERP, Dutch Farms has grown its revenue by 25 percent without needing to add staff to back-office positions. The company has also gained comprehensive operational insight and control, and it has sharpened its competitive edge with both small and large retailers alike.

"What's great is that I don't have to be at our Detroit operation, for example, to know what's going on there. By using Microsoft Dynamics NAV, I can see and control every aspect of our operation."

  • – Jay Earnshaw, General Operations Manager, Dutch Farms
