Today’s architecture, engineering, and construction firms operate in a highly competitive and fast-paced environment. Functioning at peak efficiency levels, ensuring proper management of financial resources, and having the flexibility to meet unique client needs have never been more critical to a firm’s success.
The Microsoft Dynamics Finance and Operations A/E/C Industry Solution was designed specifically to help A/E/C firms integrate key financial, project, resource, and client management processes in order to improve visibility across the firm, win more business, and maximize project delivery success - all helping to set your firm apart from its competition.
Integrated project management capabilities in Microsoft Dynamics Finance and Operations help your firm improve project delivery and optimize your resourcing practices.
Available for deployment either in the Microsoft Azure cloud or in your firm’s data center, Microsoft Dynamics Finance and Operations is tightly integrated with the Microsoft technologies your firm already uses, including Microsoft Office, Microsoft SharePoint, and Power-BI.
In addition to helping your firm naturally leverage the investments you’ve already made with Microsoft, this integration maximizes employee productivity levels, removes complexity from your IT environment, and minimizes your IT Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). So you can focus on serving your customers and profitably growing your business, not on trying to integrate your disparate IT systems.
