Welcome back to the "Top Reasons to Purchase a Business Solution from Microsoft" blog series. Last week, we kicked off the discussion with a look at how a complete business solution from Microsoft goes beyond what stand-alone ERP or accounting software can do. Just a reminder, over the next several weeks we will be providing an overview of why Microsoft Dynamics is a great choice to help you gain greater insight into your business, so you can drive profit margins and ultimately grow your business.

Helps You Work Better, Faster, and Smarter

When you think about the most successful businesses today, you'll realize they all have something in common: passionate employees who are engaged, committed to their company's success, and working at their maximum potential. Microsoft Dynamics is an innovative, flexible, end-to-end solution that helps makes your people more proactive and productive by giving them personalized, agile tools based on the familiar, interoperable Microsoft technologies that they work with every day.

The solution also features a RoleTailored user interface, designed to help your employees uncover the information and tasks relevant to their specific job functions, right on their home page. This interface maps tasks to key roles in your business, so your employees can take advantage of a tool that matches their preferences and work styles. As a result, they can work smarter, faster, and more efficiently than ever.

Customer Story

Billund Airport is the second-largest airport in Denmark. To drive an efficient, cost-effective operation, the airport wanted to tie together its financial management and retail management systems. To do so, it implemented Microsoft Dynamics ERP and extended the solution with retail solution built by a Microsoft Dynamics partner. Since going live, the airport has significantly improved business insight, increased shopping revenue by 10 percent, and discovered that the Microsoft Dynamics RoleTailored interface helps in delivering a rapid payback.

"In our operation, the payback period for Microsoft Dynamics ERP with the RoleTailored interface was less than one year. The solution fits very closely to people's functions, which makes our work extremely efficient." Jan Hessellund, Billund Airport
