Imagine how collaboration workspaces can totally change the game. Without leaving a workspace, your team members can access connected data and insights to create the presentation. They can easily bring together relevant customer or financial information. And, there are never any issues with version control. Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Office 365 work together to make collaboration and sales processes painless and seamless.
To get an edge, your business needs to make every minute count. Every time you contact a customer it needs to build trust and loyalty. It’s a tough ask if the tools you’re using every day aren’t pulling in the same direction. Dipping in and out of different applications slows you down, while hard-to-find data makes it tougher for teams to share ideas or see the bigger picture. This, in turn, hinders decision-making and makes it more time consuming.
The good news is, this is possible. Today’s cloud-based solutions are ready to talk to each other. What’s key is that you see the need for your suite of productivity applications and your business management solution to work as one, to get the best out of both.
We mentioned above that the cloud puts synchronised business solutions firmly within your reach. A common platform lets you unify relationships, processes and data and all through the applications you use on a daily basis. From this position, your teams can drive efficiency and serve customers effectively.
Suddenly, making information available is the default, not another overhead. Update a document, report, or project in one location, and it will sync and update in another. With cloud compute power, it’s also easier to adopt new features or technology, such as business analytics or artificial intelligence. These solutions turn your data into meaningful insights to make better, more informed, faster decisions.
One of the key contributions that your solutions can make to your business is to help you work even better together. When your business applications feed into your everyday productivity applications, and vice versa, it brings people together and helps you to be more productive.
This makes your routine tasks happen that much more smoothly.However good your existing business and productivity applications are, if they work in silos, it falls on your employees to connect the data and insights to make decisions. This is inefficient by its very nature and it invites human error. It can also hold you back from providing great customer experiences. If your productivity and business applications work as one, then your technology.
Insights come from having the right data, in the right place, at the right time. To unlock the potential of your data, you need it to be up-to-date and accessible – across all your applications.
Again, solutions need to work together to make this happen. Cloud technology gives you the power to process data at scale and to visualise and interrogate data from across your business applications. So, you can unlock the insights that sit within it. Let’s see how this might have an impact in practice.
If you are running your business today using multiple applications and productivity tools, you may be keeping data and people apart. By treating your solutions as one ecosystem, you can optimize how your business performs. Allowing you to draw on their joint capabilities as well as their individual strengths.
Leveraging the capabilities together allows you to align your operations, financials, sales, and services. This both supports collaboration internally and with customers and generates insights. Once this happens, you’ll see your processes, customer interactions, and decisions all improve. So, you can unlock what’s next for your business.
