I currently use Access as a customized point of sale system. I am super intrigued by Dynamics 365. It seems straight forward and highly capable. I really like that it is an All-In-One system. My primary use would be for daily sales, and customer loyalty program. I would also use it for inventory tracking, etc. I own a buy, sell, trade business and we use Access to query real time pricing and fair market values via a script (it updates the pricing automatically for each item).
I guess my biggest question is: has anyone migrated from Access as their primary Point of Sale to Dynamics 365? How did the data transfer go? I'm hoping since Access is a MS program the data mapping will be pretty easy.
Anyone?! Help a girl out!
Also, I did contact sales, I'm hoping to hear back soon!
Hi, if you mean data migration - it is a matter of loading configuration data to D365 backoffice.
Usual way is to use Data Entities - a set of standard entities that allow you to quickly upload configuration data.
Regarding data mapping- is your 'Access POS' something that Microsoft provided or internal developed Access extension? If it is internal, then you will have to work with D365 consultants on data mapping, most probably
