    The procurement process has been made easier.
    Our asset management is now on point.
    The human resource management especially the payroll management bit is awesome.

    Pros

    Dynamics 365 BC has a variety of tools including the procurement module, human resource module, and the finance module.
    It has a interface that is user friendly and easy to use.
    It's workflows are outstanding and carrying out an activity from one end to another is made easy. With the workflows, at least a track can be made on the movement of activities carried out in the system.
    The ability to generate reports is a plus which is also easy.
    Another good feature is that it can be customized to accommodate the user needs.
    It is also compatible with Microsoft Excel such that one can export and import data between the two.

    Cons

    At first, you will need some practice on how to manage it to avoid messing up with your crucial data.

    Another issue is that running many processes at once can slow it down and this will force you to wait longer.

    We use the collections module, sales, purchasing, service cost, job cost, subcontractor module, and more. We use purchase orders and 3 way matching and use dynamics for a wide range of use.

    Pros

    You can easily adjust titles to be in red or have distinctive features to stand out, but it is not always easy to do on the financial module and you cannot do it when using features like smartlist.

    Cons

    The inability to generate certain reports (you have to set them up yourself) which can be VERY time consuming.
