Factory of the Future for Manufacturers

October 03, 2018 / 0 Comments / in Manufacturing ERP Software, Dynamics 365 for Operations / by Nancy Phillippi

What is the factory of the future?

Dynamics 365 Enterprise is now even a better value for businesses with the recent new feature release, Custom Fields. This feature allows any user with security to add custom fields to form windows. I am amazed daily by the depth of Dynamics 365 Enterprise and the constant flow of new features in an already feature rich environment. Now with this latest feature there is very little this solution can not do. In fact we had an all day presentation recently and the prospect had spent the previous day on a SAP demonstration. We got immediate feedback that Dynamics 365 Enterprise was easier to navigate and more user friendly than SAP. Not only was the prospect impressed, but the consulting firm they hired to help them evaluate ERP solutions agreed.
