Socius Announces Early Adoption of Microsoft Dynamics 365

DUBLIN, Ohio, Oct. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Socius, an award-winning business technology and consulting company, announces their participation in the Early Adopter Partner Program for Microsoft Dynamics 365. The program will allow Socius to accelerate preparedness for the launch of a Dynamics 365 offering via Socius One Cloud licensing, services and support for new clients. As part of this strategic initiative, Socius, a Microsoft Direct Cloud Solution Provider, will be delivering a partner program that provides other partners the opportunity to resell Dynamics 365 to their clients.

Dynamics 365 will be available to customers in the U.S. and Canada on November 1, 2016, as announced by Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella at Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference in Toronto in July. Five years after debuting Office 365, Microsoft has announced Dynamics 365, the combination of its sales, finance and operations software in one suite that is fully integrated with the Office 365 productivity suite. The move is the latest in a series of announcements made to deliver on Microsoft’s mission to “empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.”

Socius is part of a select group of Microsoft partners with diverse application expertise, from ERP to Office 365. Dynamics 365 is unique from all other ERP products because it empowers users to utilize the Microsoft productivity suite and work inside of Microsoft Outlook while handling financials, operations, sales, purchasing, customer relationship management, marketing and other related tasks.

Some of the features in Dynamics 365 include:

Cloud First – Dynamics 365 is offered as a SaaS product on the Microsoft Azure cloud
Mobile First – Built for a mobile workforce for greater user experience on any device or web browser
Power BI & Cortana Intelligence – Natively embedded to give customers predictive insights, advice and steps utilizing workflows
Access to the “Internet of Things” Data – Will reside inside Dynamics 365 which enables preemptive actions for business functions like Field Service
AppSource – The Microsoft marketplace to find SaaS apps that will be able to adapt and innovate in real time with a common data model
