dtwork-email-header

Let’s talk about Digital Transformation.

Digital transformation means re-envisioning how you:

  • Engage your customers
  • Empower your employees
  • Optimize your operations
  • Transform your products

To enable digital transformation strategies—so organizations can grow, evolve and meet the changing needs of customers, as well as capture new business opportunities—companies need intelligent business applications…and that’s where Microsoft Dynamics 365 comes in.

Microsoft is unifying all its business applications. Breaking down the artificial silos of ERP and CRM and will deliver new purpose-built applications in the cloud to deliver next generation intelligent business applications.

With Dynamics 365, your business applications can work together seamlessly across CRM and ERP. You can now manage specific business processes in a single platform including Sales, Customer Service, Field Service, Operations, Project Service Automation, Financials and Marketing.

With Microsoft Power BI, Cortana Intelligence, and Azure Machine Learning built in, Dynamics 365 helps you and your employees turn big data into actionable plans. You can engage customers with personalized insight across all customer touchpoints. You can transform products with an extensible platform and integrated applications to use data as a strategic asset, automating processes, and innovating with new business models, services, products, and experiences.

Dynamics 365 helps organizations empower people to achieve more by giving them proven processes, familiar tools and intelligent guidance to take the next best action—so they can do their best work.

Dynamics 365 takes advantage of the foundational capabilities of the cloud ecosystem built on Azure. This includes all the intelligence and data tools that make your knowledge available and actionable throughout your business process workflows.

With intelligent business applications across CRM and ERP, Microsoft Dynamics 365 gives you choice. Start with just what you need to run your business—and then add apps as your needs change. Add new capabilities to your existing enterprise business solutions to enhance what you already use. These apps are designed to change and adapt, including an amazing breadth of technologies that prioritize actionable intelligence. With applications that fit roles, industries and businesses – so organizations can start with and pay only for what they need and grow at their pace to run their entire business in the cloud.
