Modernize and Maximize ERP Benefits by Migrating to Cloud

Modernize your ERP for Retail and Manufacturing by Upgrading to the Cloud webinar Key Highlights


Korcomptenz presented a webinar titled “Modernize your ERP by Upgrading to the Cloud.” The webinar was conducted on April 28, 2021, and the main objectives of the webinar were as follows:

Issues of on-prem ERP and benefits of moving to the Cloud

The older ERPs built for manufacturing and retail have inefficient labour-intensive processes, inconsistent execution, rising datacentre costs, limited visibility into your operations and, no access to innovation accelerators such as AI (Artificial intelligence) and ML (Machine learning).

The reasons to migrate, on the other hand, are many like real-time visibility, flexible licensing and scalable architecture, easy integration to upward/downward systems & applications and constant updates.

Features of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations (F&O) is designed to help users easily and more productively manage essential business processes.

F&O can track and control over-budget spending by linking budget control to Purchase requisition and Purchase orders. This feature allows management to set limits for a certain commodity such as office supplies.

The Supply Chain Functionality of Dynamics 365 is the “Advanced warehouse management” module which helps manage the warehousing processes in manufacturing, distribution, and retail companies. Advanced warehousing supports all types of processes including purchase receipts, sales order pick/pack/and ship operations, customer returns, warehouse transfer orders etc.

Key Takeaway


ERP systems are integral to manufacturing and retail businesses, and the ability of a business to survive and thrive requires an ERP system that is modern, unified, adaptable, and intelligent.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 is a set of intelligent business applications that helps you run your entire business and deliver greater results through predictive, and AI-driven insights.

Upgrading to the cloud ERP not just helps your business process perform better, it also makes the total cost of ownership lower when compared to an On-Premise deployment.
