BUILDING A SOFTWARE FOUNDATION IN THE CLOUD
Sikich is a technology and business consultancy with a deep commitment to manufacturing. We feel that ETO and CTO companies should benefit from a software solution that is a better match than either disparate, specialized applications or a large-scale ERP system with a deployment length that may not be acceptable for companies’ intent on generating tangible, quick time to benefit. However, some well-reviewed and widely adopted, standard ERP solutions could serve as a foundation for the industry software we envision. One of them is Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, a modern, evolving system from one of the industry’s leaders.
Business Central is a modern ERP system that companies can implement in the private, public, or hybrid cloud as well as on-premises. Microsoft has continuously strengthened and refined it, and the Sikich practice and expertise has grown and matured along with it. Business Central comes with extensive functionality to power a business, including project management, finance, sales, services, and supply chain. It’s modular, so you can follow your priorities in deploying the capabilities you want, and you can choose whether to deploy on-premises or in the cloud. Business Central interfaces, functionality, and workflows are designed for people in real business roles. The solution provides insight and visualization tools that help them make sense of business data to answer questions and fuel decisions. The system integrates with the Microsoft 365 apps that many companies use, such as Excel, Outlook, Word, PowerPoint, and Teams. You can create and share documents or work with colleagues and customers, pulling information from Business Central into the software tool on your screen.
