Microsoft AX Revuew

This software can do so very much, but there isn't a lot of info out there to show you how to make things happen. Chances are good that the software can do whatever reports, etc. you might need, but there is often no instructions available on how to accomplish your goals.

Pros

There is a great deal of functionality with this product. This is a very powerful software, however it is not easily learned.

Cons

Not very user friendly. It is difficult to find instructions on how to do certain things that AX surely is capable of doing.

Great And Easy To Use Software

Pros

New users find it easy and less stress to use the software. Its user-friendliness is quite impressive and big ups to Microsoft.

Cons

I had a little challenge when setting up but realised it was not a big issue after sorting it out. It was easy to go after that.

Dynamic Software

Pros

A wonderful on-premises enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution for our enterprise. It has everything we needed and therefore implemented it into our company! Just went live with a few BETA clients.

Cons

The only issue was it took a long time to implement this product due to the complexity of it and our company dynamics.

The tool that you need for improve your business or company

Pros

This is an awesome tool that comes with all the elements that you need to improve your business, because Dynamics allows you to cover a big range of opportunities, working through five services: Sales, Service, Finance and Operations, Talent and Marketing. You can cover all the needs of your business through only one app, the support customer is awesome and the software works perfectly.

Cons

I have nothing bad to say about Dynamics, it comes with the features that you need for your business and has an easy integration with another Microsoft software like MS Office for example.

Great training was given on-site and within the software.

Pros

This is a professionally written ERP that fits into all areas of our core processes. The reliability and data mining features are great.

AX Go Live Process and Maintenance Process

Pros

Although Software is no doubt is an excellent software but our our vendor who implemented is not properly trained on it.
Software has all the things combine in it that older Microsoft GP has in different applications. Like Financial, Inventory and Procurement and sourcing.

Cons

Microsoft should stop giving rights to these software companies that not properly trained. Software as compare to SAP have is little bit difficult manager.
SQL DB sizes grow too much.

Easy to learn, quality software

Pros

Relatively easy to learn, and processes made sense almost right away. I liked the fact that an accounting background isn’t required to be able to operate effectively.

Cons

Like any other software there are limitations. I would probably have liked a more diverse, customizable interface.

Absolutely the best way to plan resourcefully in any company!

Pros

I've always liked a good platform to plan ahead and keep everything organized. And that is what Microsoft Dynamics did!

Cons

The product is a very round and sound way to go, you will not go wrong with Microsoft the only bad thing I would say would be the wait time on the customer Service line. Everytime it's +10 minute wait.

Microsoft Dynamics Great Plains

I like the software, overall.

Pros

The software does what is is designed to do. It is accurate and very dependable. I rely on it for a multi-million dollar business.

Cons

It is a very difficult system to train an individual(s) on. Errors are difficult to trace down, if done in a prior month's posting period.

Microsoft AX is a pretty robust ERP for small to medium sized business

Overall, it is a decent ERP system and gets the job done. I've only been working in it for 4 months and have picked up on everything fairly easily. The user roles and work flows enable various departments to stay connected.

Pros

Looks and feels like Microsoft Excel
Hierarchical structure is easy to follow
Easy to download information
Techgap is a great resource

Cons

Many of the set ups are not intuitive. You really need to have a separate test environment to constantly play in to be sure you understand how things will actually work.
In our environment, processing time is very slow.
Cannot be implemented without a partner. Which is costly

A big tool to manage the whole business

Pros

You can start to work in the application with a short course.
All modules work similary (journals to do transacctions and list forms to review data).

Cons

In some modules, when you have a big volume of data the application can be slow.
Enterprise portal needs a review (I use AX2012)

Need a Technology Degree....

Would not recommend to any company....

Pros

Microsoft is great when all yours employees are computer geeks. No training can prepare you for forever opening many screens and once you close, it's gone. the enhancements do not prepare you for the inevitable.

Cons

Not cost effective at all but what Microsoft product is. Microsoft needs to realize the whole planet is NOT computer literate.

Microsoft Dynamics AX

Pros

The software is developed by Microsoft, what gives it a good first impression. Additionally, it is rather easy to use.

Cons

Nevertheless, the functionality is not proper. Quite often, some of the bills I was introducing were automatically deleted.
