Axapta/Microsoft Dynamics AX. This is relatively new ERP – its design was completed in the very end of XX century, Navision Software bought Axapta prior to be purchased by Microsoft Business Solutions itself. Brazilian localization of Axapta is now complete and it will be released in the first quarter of 2006. In Brazil Microsoft has experiment with Axapta pricing and it is now targeted to compete with Microsiga and Datasul from one side and with SAP Business One from another side. Axapta implementation cycle is longer than for SAP BO, however Axapta is more flexible in its ability to automate upper midsize and large scale business.

10. Getting Marketing Material - It is very easy to make your own marketing material. Microsoft office has many already made marketing material, templates and brochures which can be easily manipulated to be made into your own. Additionally Microsoft Project and Microsoft Powerpoint can be used to make custom marketing flyers and they can be saved in PDF format for easy printing.

Microsoft CRM/Dynamics CRM. Now we are in the process of upgrade from MS CRM 1.2 to its 3.0 version. Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 will be more flexible to automate franchisee networks and nation-wide servicing organizations. The question of selection is more simple – if you are committed to Microsoft platform – you should know that Microsoft CRM is promoted Worldwide. Here we have to say some words about technical side of Microsoft CRM, especially considering some challenges of MS CRM upgrade – it heavily uses .Net platform, XML web services and requires strong server side programming, if you need Microsoft CRM customization and custom pieces upgrade (Microsoft CRM SDK 3.0 is a bit different from MS CRM SDK 1.2). In Brazil we saw instances of Microsoft CRM, coexisting with such corporate platform as IBM Lotus Notes Domino

When your company plans to outsource its manufacturing operations to such countries as Brazil, the ERP system for the overseas subsidiary is one of the first decisions to make. In this small article we will concentrate on functional side of the Microsoft Dynamics ERPs, such as Microsoft Navision, Microsoft Axapta and Microsoft CRM and we will not touch background technologies (Microsoft .Net vs. EJB/Java discussions)

8. Get Business Cards - This is often an overseen cost. When a new business is started, the owner is often out networking aggressively passing out business cards to anyone who will take them.

There are several ways to get a good price on business cards. has discounts nearly every day and if you go to you can search for promo codes and get deals of 250 business cards for $0-$4. You can also create and print your own business cards as long as you have the proper materials.

6. Integration Management Integrations. Some of them (SOP Transaction) were set to use eConnect adapter for IM 8.0.  Looks like version 8.0 IM eConnect adapter was using direct SQL user login and password, while in 2010 eConnect user workstation you have to deal with COM object interface

3. Make an Intranet - Intranet sites are a great way for a company to get organized. An Intranet can be used as a place to store important company documents and information that can be accessed easily and securely anywhere that has an internet connection. Google Sites has a free service where you can easily build and organize your own intranet site where you are also able to determine who may or may not view the site.

Localization. It usually has two components: language translation (in the case of Brazil it is Brazilian Portuguese) and sales, purchasing taxes and government regulation/reporting. In the case of Brazil we usually talk about these taxes & regulations: CNAE, CPF, IE, IEST, IM.

Local versus International MRP brand. This is usually the question beyond the functionality of the ERP – you need to decide for yourself if you would like advanced localization features (usually provided by local made ERP – Microsiga or Datasul to name two) or you want more control over your overseas operations from headquarters – this will probably be international ERP brand, one of them we are evaluating here – Microsoft Dynamics family (former name was Microsoft Business Solutions)

7. Email Marketing - Email marketing is a great way to attract new customers and stay connected with current ones. The best tool for email marketing is Constant Contact. At $15 a month Constant Contact is definitely worth it instead of manually running email marketing campaigns.

5. Shifting from Cascading Menus to Home Page navigation.  Here we see additional improvements to the concept of List area, Action Pane with Status bar on the top and info pane on the bottom.   Old navigation via menus is still there and probably should stay indefinitely, however the new navigation via the home page is more robust, and we assume that Microsoft is developing it to make all Dynamics ERP products to look similar or at least recognizable for the familiar user of one of the Dynamics products
