As one of the leading management platforms on the market, Microsoft Dynamics 365 is a comprehensive suite of business applications designed to help your business growDynamics 365’s fundamental concept is that all your business and customer data is maintained in one place for effective process planning and a complete understanding of your clients. However, as with most Microsoft products, Dynamics 365 licensing can be difficult to navigate. If you’re considering Dynamics 365 for your organisation and are unsure of which license to go for this article breaks it down for you.

An overview of Dynamics 365 

Dynamics 365 is a range of business applications, based in the cloud, that are designed specifically to support and enable your departments to be more productive, make better decisions and transform the way you work.  

Dynamics 365 was born from a mix of CRM and ERP solutions but now offers departmental focused automation, reporting and management capability for each area of your business. Dynamics 365 is built on top of Dataverse and embedded with Power Platform, it also has Office 365 capability.

What licenses are right for you?

When it comes to choosing the right Microsoft Dynamics 365 license for you it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Which licenses you need depends on your organisation’s function and its goals. Based on cases we deal with regularly, here are some of our recommendations to help you with your decision.

With Dynamics 365 licensing the size of your organisation drives a lot of the decisions. The enterprise level solutions with large minimum user numbers won’t be suitable for smaller organisations and so smaller organisation will use the professional licenses and likely look at Dynamics 365 Business Central. For large enterprises it really depends on your objectives and approach for each department. If you are a manufacturer for example, then having Supply Chain Management will be an essential way to stay ahead. Likewise, if you have a big customer service division then Dynamics 365 Customer Service. So, focusing on Dynamics 365 for each of the key areas of your business is a great way to start.

The other key piece of information is to make sure every full license is required. Many users could manage with team member view/read only licenses and this is a great way to save money as fringe users like management team and other departments really only need limited access.
