Which is Better Microsoft Dynamics ERP Vs Oracle ERP
When you start your business, you may need fewer employees to meet the customers’ demands. But as the company grows and converts into a mid-size firm, relying on the traditional and manual process will never quench your needs. Your customers may require a speedy delivery mechanism for complete satisfaction. To make your business thrive in the market, a streamlined approach should be adopted to manage finance and other operations.
To overcome such challenges, you need Enterprise Resources Planning Solutions such as Dynamic 365 and Oracle.
With an ample number of options available in the market, it may be challenging for you to pick the right one. Let’s discuss some of the significant differences between these two ERPs to make your work easy.
Microsoft Dynamic 365 Overview
Microsoft launched this next-generation ERP solution in 2016. After its launch, it became a buzzword in the market. This ERP became a helping hand for many sectors like finance, sales, marketing, operations, and customer service. This system is an essential business intelligence tool, as, unlike other ERPs, it is based on the cloud.
Dynamic 365 is also compatible with other Windows applications. For example, according to Dynamics 365 ERP Consulting experts, it is possible to synchronize it with Microsoft Outlook to change sales and inventory quotes through email directly. This massive integrated system has an easy-to-understand and straightforward interface.
Oracle Sales Cloud Overview
This ERP was developed back in 1998 and came up with ERP products like ‘Oracle Sales Online’ and ‘Oracle Marketing Online.
