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.

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.

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.

Software has all the things combine in it that older Microsoft GP has in different applications. Like Financial, Inventory and Procurement and sourcing.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

I use AX everyday in the office administration field. With the fact that I have been using it for a couple of years now, for the most part I can navigate through it easily. The database can hold tons of detailed customer information, and is pretty viewer friendly.

Pros

All of the information is always saved automatically when you close something, which is very helpful.

Cons

When AX first launched as a whole there were many bugs that had to be worked out, including me being kicked out of the system right in the middle of working on something. Also sometimes it becomes a hassel to have to have multiple screens open just to to enter or edit certain information.

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).

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