If you are shopping for an ERP, you have many choices in the market. Of course, Microsoft is one of the obvious choices but there are many other ERP’s that are as good as those from Microsoft.
So why would you choose an ERP from Microsoft instead of another vendor?
Unless your preferred consulting partner has developed their skills around another ERP, there are many compelling reasons to choose an ERP from Microsoft:
- Microsoft has a traditional reputation of being an easy company to do business with and their pricing is very competitive with others.
- An ERP does not live in isolation. There are multiple benefits if your ERP integrates with Excel, Outlook, SharePoint, Teams, etc. Most ERP’s will integrate with Excel but none has the depth of integration with all the Microsoft personal and group productivity suites.
