dynamics 365 modules

Microsoft Dynamics 365 has so many different modules that one might not be sure which one is the right application to fit their company’s needs and requirements.

So, to help you understand everything you need to know about Dynamics 365 modules we will first divide Microsoft Dynamics 365 modules for:

And after that, we furthermore split these applications into different application categories and those are:

At this point, we will give you an overview of each module within the category. After this article, you will understand each Microsoft Dynamics 365 application and where you need to go next, to learn more about each individual application.

Dynamics 365 Modules Overview

Microsoft Dynamics 365 modules can be separated into two different categories based on the size of the company.

These applications will be generally recommended depending on the size of your organization, but it doesn’t mean you cannot choose based on your needs.

It is only because smaller companies typically need less function and customization and rather prefer automation, integration, and product competitiveness in the marketplace which means less expensive.

However, as I said, if your SMB company needs more advanced features, then choosing modules for enterprises will be more appropriate.

And vice-versa if your medium or large company doesn’t need the advance and customized features, then modules in a business category will be more suitable.

The great thing about Dynamics 365 is that they are made based on your needs, so you don’t have to pay extra for features and capabilities you don’t need.

Dynamics 365 ERP & CRM Business Modules (for Small and Medium)

Dynamics 365 Business modules are typically recommended for businesses with around 250 employees. These modules include:

  • Dynamics 365 Business Central: This is an all-in-one enterprise resource management system for small and medium-sized businesses to manage finance, supply chain, sales, and customer service and operations.
  • Dynamics 365 Sales (Professional): is sales force automation with core Dynamics 365 Sales capabilities and Microsoft 365 integration.
  • Dynamics 365 Customer Service (Professional): This is customer service automation with core Dynamics 365 Customer Service capabilities.

As I said, these applications are typically recommended to fit the needs of SMBs or the need for general features without advanced capabilities.

The benefits of these applications are that they are more affordable for smaller companies as they do not need to pay for features and capabilities that they would not need to use. Also, users can learn faster using such applications enabling shorter adoption time and an increase in productivity.

Also, these applications still come with leading Microsoft AI, Automation, Business Intelligence, and Cloud technology.

Dynamics 365 ERP & CRM Enterprise Modules (for Medium and Large Sized Businesses)

Dynamics 365 ERP & CRM Enterprise modules are more robust applications offering more advanced features and customization for larger businesses. Dynamics 365 Enterprise modules include:

  • Dynamics 365 Finance: This is financial management designed to support large ad complex organizations to maximize financial visibility and profitability.
  • Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management: Enterprise-scale supply chain solution for operations leaders to transform their manufacturing and supply chain processes.
  • Dynamics 365 Sales (Enterprise): Is leading sales force automation with advanced Dynamics 365 Sales capabilities.
  • Dynamics 365 Customer Service (Enterprise): Is leading customer service management with advanced Dynamics 365 Customer Service capabilities.

Later in this article, we will explain in more detail each application and the pricing options and capabilities each module offers. For now, you should have a better understanding of what each application is used for, thus, you can easier find the one that might be appropriate for your needs.

All Size Fit Dynamics 365 ERP & CRM Modules

Microsoft also provides other solutions that are suitable whether you are a small, medium, or large size business. These applications are still affordable for small businesses, yet powerful to fit the needs of large global operations.
