There is no doubt Dynamics SL is a powerful business management system popular with businesses for decades. But over the last few years, long time SL users have watched Microsoft’s investment in their software go from a steady stream to a trickle. That coupled with a sudden need to support remote work has created a perfect storm, leaving many Dynamics SL users reeling and wondering if the software is still the right choice to support their business as they move forward.
Even with these concerns, it’s a tough decision to replace one’s business management software. Implementations can be expensive and drag on for months. Even when the software is up and running, the transition is not over. Your staff must get training on the new system and become acclimated to it. Sometimes this requires a change in work style, something not everyone is excited for.
So what to do?
First, remember you’re not alone. Countless other Dynamics SL users have found themselves in the same position you are now. For many of them, moving from Dynamics SL to Acumatica Cloud ERP was the simple choice. Here are just a few reasons why.
- The cofounder of Acumatica was the CEO of Solomon software (the creators of Dynamics SL) from 1983 to 1999. So, those who like the functionality of SL will see many similarities mirrored in Acumatica, which makes the learning curve less steep.
- Acumatica was born in the cloud. So, it’s ready to support the needs of remote workers with no additional tools or set up. All users need to access it is a web browser. Everyone enjoys the same experience on any device, whether it’s a laptop, smartphone or tablet.
- Unlike Dynamics SL, Acumatica has a fully integrated CRM system. This means, instead of buying a separate CRM and getting developer to help you connect it to SL, Acumatica CRM is ready to go right out of the box. This cuts down on implementation costs, eliminates the need for staff to learn multiple systems and reduces the chance for data entry error.
- Acumatica offers growth friendly licensing. Instead of paying per user, its customers pay based on the computing resources they use. This gives you the freedom to involve everyone without breaking the budget.
