What Is Microsoft Dynamics?
Microsoft Dynamics is a cloud-based enterprise platform that combines Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) into several apps for small to medium-sized businesses. The way that Microsoft Dynamics is set up allows users to start with what they need and grow and expand at a rate that is congruent to their own business expansion. Apps and functionalities can be added as and when. As opposed to spending hours installing Dynamics on dozens of computers, this application can be accessed from any web browser, putting it under the category of Software-As-A-Service or SaaS. As well as ease of access you and the rest of the business can rest assured knowing they never need to update or fix things as Microsoft will apply this automatically.
How Microsoft Dynamics Works
Microsoft Dynamics is a powerful cloud-based set of tools for businesses. It combines a group of Customer Relationship Management (CRM) applications with a range of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) tools, as well as resources for small and medium-sized businesses. What all this means is that Microsoft Dynamics empowers you with numerous apps and add-ons that address a variety of business needs.
Microsoft Dynamics is held on the cloud, which means that rather than spend hours installing Dynamics on all your company computers, it can be accessed from any web browser instantly.
This gives it real flexibility, allowing your business to start with the tools you currently need, then develop the package you use as the size and needs of the business develops. This adaptability and flexibility give Microsoft Dynamics the edge.
There’s no need to install a package of applications that you’re unlikely to use, or which aren’t particularly relevant to your business. Being bespoke, it enables your employees to get to grips much quicker with applications that support their work.
Customer Relationship Management
Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tools help companies better manage their interactions with their customers and clients. They allow you to better market your business, help streamline and optimise your sales and provide solutions to customer needs.
It enables your company to automate the whole process of customer management, making the process much more agile and responsive.
CRM is focused on the customer, taking and cataloguing data that can be used across the company. Its main goal is to provide a standardised set of data that can help improve sales and customer retention. This gives small and medium-sized businesses access to the kind of customer information that was once only accessible for much larger businesses. It creates more of a level playing field and allows smaller companies to compete and grow.
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)
If a CRM is geared towards the customer, then Enterprise Resource Planning is all about the running of the business itself. ERP incorporates software applications that provide end-to-end business management tools.
They can organise and automate things like financial management, manufacturing, supply change management, as well as day-to-day business operations such as human resources.
Using familiar Microsoft products such as Outlook and Office 365, it allows you to connect company employees, systems and processes from one place that’s accessible from any device.
Microsoft Dynamics simplifies all this and makes it less resource and time-hungry while at the same time improving overall efficiency.
The Top Uses Of Microsoft Dynamics Within A Business
Microsoft Dynamics has a wide range of uses within a business. It comprises six apps that help streamline your business operations, helping you and your employees be better connected and work more efficiently.
- Sales – users can build and track relationships with customers. This powerful tool enables lead generation, puts in-depth insights at your fingertips and can help to close sales quickly. Combining all these features serves to supercharge the entire sales process, helping you to better understand and retain your customers.
- Customer service – Makes customer engagement more focused, personal and agile. It helps you deliver a much more tailored service for your customers, giving smaller businesses the kind of data advantage only previously enjoyed by their larger competitors. It enables users to intelligently grow their customer base.
- Operations – This covers the business operations that keep your company running, such as supply chains, human resources and financial planning. It’s the nuts and bolts of a business. Keep these things running smoothly, and the rest of the business can grow from solid foundations. It streamlines and simplifies many vital operations, freeing up more time and resources to concentrate on growing the business.
- Marketing – Ensures that the sales and marketing departments are connected and focused. This helps you to create a dynamic sales and marketing strategy that is constantly informed and evolving. This integration is vital to achieving optimum results.

The Businesses And Industries Microsoft Dynamics Can Help
Microsoft Dynamics is used by hundreds of thousands of businesses worldwide. It’s a valued part of the working life of different industries, including information technology, healthcare, construction, higher education and financial services.
The list of users includes household names such as Hallmark, Weight Watchers, Toshiba and Qatar Airways. The success of Microsoft Dynamics, however, has less to do with big global brands, and more to do with the flexibility of the software.
It can easily handle the intense demands of a multinational, but it’s also suitable for start-ups and other small businesses. Small businesses, with as few as two employees, use Microsoft Dynamics. You can choose the tools you require, adding more as your business grows and develops. This makes it not only easily scalable but also cost-effective. Whatever industry you’re working in, Microsoft Dynamics can likely play a part in streamlining and informing how your business operates.
At Everything Tech, we work with small and medium-sized enterprises, helping them find the right set of solutions to their needs. We help them with a bespoke installation of Microsoft Dynamics, which gives them the tools they need but doesn’t create extra headaches. This adaptability gives Microsoft Dynamics the edge over many of its competitors.
Why Microsoft Dynamics is better than Salesforce
The chief competitor of Microsoft Dynamics is Salesforce. Both offer broad functionality and have a range and depth of capabilities that put them ahead of their rivals.
How Do They Compare Against Each Other?
There are some differences, particularly when it comes to how well they can be applied to the needs of small and medium-sized businesses. There are various reasons why an increasing number of business users now consider Microsoft Dynamics to have the edge on its more established rival.
- Development flexibility – Dynamics was designed to make it easy to customise for the specific needs of each customer. By accessing the extensive network of Microsoft Gold Partners, a business can get the tools they need without depending on third-party applications to supplement the main platform. The same does not apply to Salesforce.
- No multi-platform headaches – With Salesforce you can be relying on third-party apps which means that you’re accessing multiple servers and sources. If one isn’t working as well as it should, it can compromise the functionality of everything else. When it does, it can be a costly and frustrating experience, particularly for smaller businesses. You can be confident when you use Microsoft Dynamics that won’t happen.
- Security – With the use of third-party apps you don’t always know where your information is being stored. With Microsoft Dynamics, you can be assured that everything is stored on the Microsoft Azure cloud. This is already recognised as one of the safest in existence and has the full weight of Microsoft’s extensive and developing security protocols to protect it.
- The Microsoft advantage – Microsoft is one of the most innovative companies in the world, as well as one of the largest. You can be confident that Dynamics will keep evolving to meet whatever challenges the business world may face in the future. As well as constant product evolution, it also allows for seamless integration with existing Microsoft platforms, such as Microsoft Office. When you work with a Microsoft Gold Partner, like Everything Tech, you can be assured that you will gain access to new developments in Microsoft technologies.
- Cost-effective – Microsoft Dynamics works out as consistently cheaper than Salesforce, sometimes markedly so. This makes it a more realistic, as well as a comprehensive and adaptive option for small companies. In fact, Microsoft Dynamics is often much more affordable than many business owners realise.
While Salesforce is a powerful platform, we believe Microsoft Dynamics offers a range of benefits that makes it the most appropriate choice for small to medium-sized businesses.
It can turbo-charge your sales, streamline how your business is run, and help your business to grow. As your business grows, it can adapt to you.
Microsoft Dynamics links seamlessly with Microsoft Office
As outlined above, one clear advantage that Microsoft Dynamics has over its competitors is that it links seamlessly with Microsoft Office. Both are incredibly powerful applications, with Office being the backbone of many businesses.
When the two are integrated they become even more versatile and powerful. Let’s explore some of the ways in which the complementary applications can be used to help grow your business.
- Microsoft Excel – Your Excel documents can be updated automatically from the Microsoft Dynamics system, saving you vast amounts of time and effort. It can simplify data analysis, and your reports can be updated online, giving you a real-time view of all the information you need.
- Microsoft Word – Microsoft Dynamics contains Word templates, giving you access to all the advanced benefits of Microsoft Word. Customer data can easily be merged into a Word template to create summaries.
- Outlook – When Microsoft Dynamics is integrated with Outlook it creates a powerful set of tools. It allows you to easily keep track of your emails and lets you access sales data and customer appointments with a single click from Outlook Calendar. It enables you to create activity lists in response to emails, which are then automatically scheduled as tasks and added to the customer record.
- SharePoint – The document management and collaboration tool SharePoint helps to maintain storage space. When it’s integrated with Microsoft Dynamics, customer data can be easily sourced from SharePoint. Documents containing customer data can be attached to the customer record. It also allows you to collaborate with users outside of the organisation, and to share documents externally.
