Our Microsoft Dynamics ERP Clients Want to Simplify, Streamline, Plan, and Grow. How about You?
Let’s start with simplify. You’re probably familiar with the KISS Principle. KISS is an acronym for “Keep it simple, stupid,” a design principle introduced by the U.S. Navy in 1960. The KISS principle states that most systems work best if they are kept simple rather than made complicated; therefore simplicity should be a key goal in design and unnecessary complexity should be avoided.
Microsoft was founded in 1975, 15 years after the KISS Principe was introduced. I’d wager that Bill Gates was a fan of KISS. Because simplicity was always part of his message. Gates wanted his business to grow. He also wanted you and your business to grow. Simplicity, which was his touchstone, is also a guiding principle behind the various Microsoft Dynamics ERP software solutions.
When you eliminate complexity, you’re on the right path for streamlining your business and planning for future growth.
Take Microsoft Dynamics GP as a Prime Example of Simplicity
It used to be called Great Plains Software, way back when it was first released in 1993. It was built simply to handle the core accounting requirements that we in the industry call GLAPAR, which stands for GL (General Ledger), AP (Accounts Payable), and AR (Accounts receivable). Great Plains was simple enough for any bookkeeper, accountant, or finance professional to run.
Great Plains was so popular that even today, 18 years after Great Plains was purchased by Microsoft and renamed Microsoft Dynamics GP, veteran accountants still refer to it as Great Plains. It may not be quite as simple anymore, but it’s definitely an efficient program for running your financials and your operations. Integrated with Microsoft Dynamics CRM, you can now use Dynamics for your entire business, from the back office to the front office and everything in between – purchasing, inventory, administration, HR, payroll, field service, project accounting, and more.
It’s functional and easy to use. And it gives your business robust financial management across all of your departments. And it’s trusted by more than 80,000 users worldwide. I call that truth in numbers.
