As I have only used it in one business I can't say too much how relevant it would be for other types of business, eg Retail or Manufacturing. It doesn't appear to be specifically set up for ecommerce.

We wholesale products and it works well for that kind of business model.

Microsoft Dynamics AX

Microsoft Dynamics AX is suitable for medium to large organizations that are looking for an Enterprise Resource Planning solution that provides a single solution for managing multiple business processes and reporting and transaction requirements. Dynamics AX has proven to be a good solution for our wholesale business.

Pros

  • Generic Inquiries are a very easy way to create custom reports.
  • The automation schedules are useful, we use these for confirming of shipments, creating invoices and emailing them. Reduces workload.
  • Open for integration with other software. We find the ease of connection to MS PowerBI very useful.

Cons

  • The CRM module is very basic.
  • There is no supplier remittance function.
  • The API is basic, our ecommerce integration has had to be built nearly from scratch.
Justin Leflaive profile photo
  • Call center does not easily support orders taken from multiple locations.
  • Payment integration has been challenging, but ultimately doable.
  • There are several minor bugs that pop up from time to time.

It is very customisable and good value for money. It is also scalable for the future. The CRM and ecommerce integtration are the main downsides.

Microsoft Dynamics continues to evolve by bringing more functionality to the customer. Also there are several independent software providers that offer a wide range of solutions for vertical markets.

Some integration and high volume ramping challenges, particularly with BizTalk and SQL Server, but getting sorted out. Outages over time appeared to be more dependent on integration complexity than AX MES.

Microsoft did a reasonably good job supporting the deployment efforts to multiple factories and ongoing stabilization. I don't think that MES was intended for the large enterprise volume and complexity levels our operations required.

Users in some cases were busy and not engaged, so those areas went slower. Configuration by the consultants was good, but at time complicated.

Alternatives Considered

NetSuite is much more expensive and is difficult to customise or integrate.
SAP is a more complex and powerful system, but several times more expensive to implement and run.
Justin Leflaive profile photo
Not as user-friendly and takes more time to input invoices but gets slightly faster as you get used to their quirks.
