Microsoft Business Solutions


Microsoft Business Solutions are integrated business applications for small and mid-size organizations, and divisions of large enterprises. Business solutions from Microsoft Business include applications and services for retailers, manufacturers, wholesale distributors, and service companies, doing business domestically or in multiple countries.   These solutions bring together information from every corner of your company and let you analyze it to make more profitable decisions. As part of the Microsoft family of offerings, these solutions are ready to work with widely-used productivity applications, like Microsoft Office, and top technologies like Microsoft Windows Server System and Microsoft .NET. Data entered in one place is shared across your company—speeding operations, reducing errors, and putting accurate information at the fingertips of those who need it. But "connected" doesn't stop there. Processes can be securely extended to your entire business community, helping you maximize efficiency. With extensive emphasis on research and development, the Microsoft suite of products is positioned to carry your business success now and in the future. 

Most importantly, these solutions are delivered by a global network of partners like iDrive LLC who provide local, personalized service—from planning and implementation, to customization, to ongoing support and education. That means you get world-class business solutions from a local professional who'll be there to provide what you need as business conditions change and your business grows.

The Future of Microsoft Business Solutions

The current Microsoft Business Solutions suite of products includes Great Plains, Solomon, Axapta, Navision, and CRM.  As Microsoft acquired these products over the past few years, a plan was developed to capture the finest aspects of all the products and create a new best of breed product that incorporates the latest in client and server technology along with the greatest product features and provides a smooth transition for users of the existing products.  The creation of this next generation product was known as Project Green.

Microsoft has recently announced the name that will replace Microsoft Business Solutions and become the new brand – Microsoft Dynamics.  Under the Microsoft Dynamics brand, the products will have the following names:

  • Microsoft Dynamics CRM (Customer Relationship Management)
  • Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains)
  • Microsoft Dynamics SL (Solomon)

The Dynamics name was chosen after extensive market research and represents the energy and motion that moves businesses forward.  Additionally, it suggests the idea of flexibility and adaptability because something that is dynamic is always changing and reflects the environment it performs in.

The transition to Dynamics will be made gradually, so you’ll see the names used interchangeably for a while.  Next releases of the products will incorporate common features such as role-based users.  Rest assured that your investment in your product is secure; through Transformational Assurance, Microsoft will ensure that your product can be easily upgraded to all future product versions.  You will have a staged migration that preserves your existing investment but allows you to receive the benefits from Microsoft’s significant investments in research and development.
