Supporting a Client Centric Culture with a Technology Enabled Workforce

Underpinning this technology and client centred culture, Chris Geier writes in the latest company blog post how investing in learning and development, technology, and employee benefits, continues to enhance the employee experience within the firm. An investment which leads to happy and successful employees, and therefore, where clients ultimately reap the benefits.

Furthermore,having integrated Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central with their other software systems, Sikich believe this is the most effective step firms can take to realize the benefits of emerging technologies. 

Sikich have treated this integration as a strategic, high-value undertaking that can help companies realize transformative initiatives and business goals faster.

And for many growing, midsize or smaller businesses, Sikich believe that Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is the perfect onramp to the modern cloud and their first adoption of a business management solution that can connect finance, operations, sales, and service teams and processes to enable greater agility in achieving their objectives. For some companies, Business Central provides a natural upgrade path from older ERP software like Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Microsoft Dynamics GP.

When organizations adopt Business Central, they typically replace disparate legacy software tools and transition to a more holistic way of managing the business. However, they often also continue using some specialized or best-of-breed software that meets specific requirements in their business. That gives them an opportunity to consider integrating their Dynamics ERP and other software systems. Integrations can certainly help companies experience the full benefits of their software as they unleash data flows and streamline IT management. Even more than that, they can support transformative business initiatives and help decision-makers guide the organization toward its goals.
