Cons
"The build-in dashboard and reporting customization should be improved."

More 3i Infotech ORION Cons →

"The solution in general just needs a few quality improvements.""Microsoft Dynamics AX could be improved by having more features available. We are going to 365 now, to use all the modules, because we found that there weren't many new things we were able to develop with AX. There were a lot of things that weren't available, so we are moving and integrating other things. The customization of upgrades should also be faster. We would also like to see more security features.""This solution could be improved with more expert resources and an easier implementation process.""There are so many errors.""There might be some features to support localizations that could be helpful to add.""They should include some modules related to solving customer problems or resolving support tickets from our customers — like a help desk for ERPs.""There should be the capability for users to enhance the application by using a low-code or no-code product from the Microsoft family.""There is also slowness in database backup."
