 Top Reasons to Purchase a Business Solution from Microsoft:

 Provides a Flexible Deployment Model
Businesses today need flexibility when deploying new technologies. Your business is no exception.
 With Microsoft Dynamics, you can choose the model that makes the most sense for your business, whether on-premises or in the cloud, or a combination of both. Plus, you’ll have the elasticity to adjust as your needs change. With the ability to choose your deployment model, you can realize rapid time-to-value.
 And if you do choose a cloud-based implementation, you will see that the cloud has a lot more to offer than just a deployment preference. It gives you a unique combination of business intelligence, collaboration, and communication tools offered by Microsoft, together in one solution. You can implement a complete cloud offering that includes Microsoft Dynamics ERP, Microsoft Office 365, and Windows Azure to take advantage of the power and productivity the cloud has to offer your business.
 Customer Profile
 As the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts transformed itself from running as a start-up to managing a new facility, it sought the technology to operate efficiently and practice sound financial management. The organization decided on a cloud-based implementation of Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Exchange Server, and Microsoft SharePoint Server. By moving to the cloud, the Kauffman Center saves more than U.S.$600,000 in its three opening years and continues to bring memorable performing-arts experiences to the community, outsourcing ancillary functions. With Microsoft Dynamics GP, the organization streamlines the tasks of financial management, provides full financial transparency, and complies easily with complex reporting requirements. The Kauffman Center has also taken advantage of the cloud-based technology to help it pursue its sustainability initiative and prepare for future challenges.
Microsoft Dynamics ERP and our other hosted Microsoft technologies are strong enablers of our business model. For one thing, we will never need to hire administrative and help-desk professionals to support our business infrastructure. Instead, we contract with accomplished experts who do this work for us with outstanding quality and optimal economy.”
         Jane Chu, CEO of the Kauffman Center
