"The stability was reliable.""The fixed assets, payroll, the data module, and user-friendliness are most valuable."

More Microsoft Dynamics GP Pros →

"Microsoft Dynamics AX can improve system performance and security. The security is basic and needs a lot of improvement.""The older version of Microsoft Dynamics AX that we are using is not as scalable as the newer version.""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.""If I had to add something in the next release, it would probably be a mobile application for a sister application of Dynamics 365; not the ERP but the Dynamics 365 HR solution. It would definitely help if we could have Microsoft or a Microsoft partner introduce a mobile application for it.""The support here in Turkey could be better. However, the international support is good.""At times there are issues related to reporting, sometimes with the integration between two or three modules, and sometimes to the logic itself.""There should be the capability for users to enhance the application by using a low-code or no-code product from the Microsoft family.""They should include some modules related to solving customer problems or resolving support tickets from our customers — like a help desk for ERPs."

More Microsoft Dynamics AX Cons →

"This is now a legacy product, so they're phasing it out over time.""There should also be extra redundancy when posting to modules. We use different sets of books such as CashBook and CheckBooks therefore if I select the wrong one the solution allows the transaction to just pass without warning."
