Attempting to implement a new Microsoft Dynamics solution can be an intimidating task if you’re trying to do it all on your own or if you lack the right internal teams or resources for the job…
Read on to learn how partnering with our senior-level Microsoft Dynamics team can optimize core implementation processes while maintaining high-quality work and meeting your most important needs.
What is Microsoft Dynamics?
Microsoft Dynamics 365 was released in 2016 after Microsoft combined Dynamics AX, an advanced Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution, with Dynamics’ Customer Relationship Management (CRM) application. Microsoft was one of the first vendors to merge CRM and ERP abilities natively in a single, cloud-based platform.
Microsoft Dynamics 365 offers a suite of intuitive business applications that deliver excellent customer experiences and increased operational efficiency. This allows businesses to improve versatility, enhance core business processes, and reduce complexity without increasing expenses. Some pre-built Dynamics applications also use artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) capabilities to gain better insights into their most critical business data and streamline business operations.
With the combination of core ERP and CRM functions in Dynamics 365, users can better view data intelligence on customer transactions, customer insights, preferences, and behaviors to drive productivity and growth over time.
Users also gain a more comprehensive view of orders, shipping inventory, and access management processes to ensure predictive insight tools are leveraged for better decision-making and increased efficiency.

Considerations when Choosing a Dynamics Consultant?
Here are five key considerations when choosing the right Dynamics consultant for you…
1. Functional Knowledge
Microsoft Dynamics 365 is a comprehensive CRM system, meaning you need a consultant whose knowledge, skills, and experience can keep up.
Our consultants have functional knowledge of the core features, modules, and integration capabilities included in the Microsoft Dynamics landscape. Before choosing a consultant for your project needs, you should ask yourself if they’re well versed in both the technical and functional aspects of the application you need.
Asking these questions first ensures the consultant you choose has undeniable experience in the most critical Dynamics 365 workflows, dashboards, configurations, forms, views, and standard reports development functionality for your organization.
You should also consider whether or not they have a strong understanding of different methodologies and integrations, including the Dynamics 365 Power Platform and the Dynamics 365 Common Data Model.
2. Communication Skills
It’s one thing to ensure your consulting team knows the software inside-out, but analyzing their soft skills is just as important.
Can your potential Microsoft Dynamics consultant appease a tricky shareholder when there’s a change in your project, like a delay? Will they be able to facilitate better collaboration between project teams?
Dynamics consultants are expected to set up requirement sessions and status update meetings with clients and coordinate with development teams to ensure the project stays aligned with a predefined timeline. Functional consultants are sometimes faced with recognizing project risks and presenting them to the appropriate shareholders, so strong interpersonal communication skills are required to get the job done the right way, the first time.
3. Understanding Business and Requirements Analysis
When searching for the best-fit Microsoft Dynamics CRM consultant for your needs, you should look for someone who understands your company’s most important business needs and requirements. Ensure they thoroughly understand your unique requirements and how to leverage functional business and requirements analysis functionality to create a workable Dynamics solution.
The consultant you choose must also determine which Microsoft Dynamics 365 modules, features, and capabilities are pertinent to your company’s core business objectives.
And, with cross-industry expertise, the best-fit Microsoft Dynamics CRM consultants for your needs will provide technical and functional expertise and an extended perspective for your most critical objectives.
4. Time Management Skills
Functional Microsoft Dynamics consultants typically have to juggle quite a few tasks at once, making managing their time efficiently and effectively as important as ever.
One day, they may provide guidance for coreDynamics 365 design, development, modification, and implementation processes; the next, they may be tasked with setting up user training, assisting with continued system maintenance, or monitoring data migration and third-party integration tasks.
Dynamics 365 consultants offer expert advice, convert project plans into real-time success, manage project risks, and even oversee knowledge transfer across the entire organization.
Multitasking and time management capabilities play a critical role in managing all areas of a Microsoft Dynamics 365 project at once and keeping all stakeholders up-to-date every step of the way.
5. Problem-Solving Skills
A Microsoft Dynamics 365 consultant should have strong business, analytical, and technological management skills and offer exceptional troubleshooting expertise to help teams solve any project issues as soon as they arise.
Consultant teams will work with project stakeholders to ensure all project phases and tasks adhere to a predefined project methodology that allows companies to align their project plans with SLAs, schedules, and budgets. This will ensure your project stays on track from implementation to integration, maintenance, and post-project support.
Any project is bound to run into unplanned risks, delays, and mistakes along the way. However, with strong problem-solving and decision-making abilities, expert Dynamics 365 consultants can address these concerns before they impact the project’s overall quality or timeliness.
