As the globe gets smaller and more and more companies endeavor to expand their reach, clients are looking for software that is ready to expand with them. They want to know that their ERP solutions will be ready to function in multiple countries and accommodate multiple languages and multiple currencies.

Many of our clients ask about the global readiness of Microsoft Dynamics 365: Can it truly meet global demands and how easy is it to implement in more than one location? What should you consider before implementing Dynamics 365? Which software application is best for your global implementation? Can we give you examples of a successful global implementation? And most important, is your company a good candidate for a global implementation of Dynamics 365?


Microsoft Dynamics 365 is global-ready.

In Dynamics 365, the capabilities already exist for supporting language translation, monetary currencies, multiple legal entities, varying accounting practices, global rollups, and unified reporting. Today’s businesses want supported Business Intelligence for their growing organizations. Microsoft Dynamics 365 implemented in your current location will serve you well as you expand into other countries. There’s no need to worry about capability or scalability; Microsoft Dynamics 365  is ready to serve you when you’re ready to grow.


Plan ahead for your Dynamics 365 implementation.

At Western Computer, we recommend a thorough needs analysis before embarking on a global implementation. We’ll help you consider both local and global requirements and create a common data structure to support your Business Intelligence across the globe. The analysis is a great opportunity to assess and improve your current processes with global implementation in mind. Change is inevitable with growth, so it is important to allow for flexibility.   Be sure to include senior leadership in consultations so that the solution not only serves you today but also aligns with future trends and growth.


Which solution is best for your global implementation?

You’ll want to consider which application is best suited for your organization’s global needs. Dynamics AX/365 is well suited for larger-scale global operations for businesses wanting to view inventory in various international locations and have visibility into all areas of a large organization. Dynamics NAV is an effective ERP solution for growing international businesses that don’t yet have such a complicated organizational structure. Both Dynamics NAV and Dynamics AX/365 will provide your organization with excellent business agility, intelligence, and analytics. Both solutions are available as hosted ERP solutions or a combination of hosted and on-premises solutions. Choosing the cloud-hosted model further increases the agility, breadth, and scalability of both solutions. You’ll also want to consider the various Microsoft built-ins, add-ons, and 3rd party tools that can assist you with a global implementation. These tools can help you quickly build custom apps, automate workflows, and bring additional data insight into your business.  Western Computer will help you understand the choices you have for making the best business decisions.

Here's an example of a successful global implementation.
