Our Deep Dive into Dynamics 365 continues as we shine a spotlight on a fairly recent addition to the Microsoft Dynamics 365 ERP offering: Project Operations.
Reengineered from the ground up, Microsoft has brought together the very best bits of Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation (formerly part of Microsoft’s Customer Engagement offering), Microsoft Project and Dynamics 365 Finance and Supply Chain Management to create the ultimate project management tool.
Here, we take a look at some of Project Operations’ main and underrated features, and find out why our Technical Consultant, Peter Norman, would recommend this software.
Microsoft Project for the web integration
In bringing together the very best of three different Microsoft offerings, Project Operations provides functionality that truly caters to those looking to get to grips with project management – and according to our Technical Consultant, Peter Norman, it’s only going to get better from here.
“With Project Operations, you don’t have to worry about the integration of various features because Microsoft have done all the heavy lifting and rolled aspects from all three components [mentioned above], giving you the confidence that this is going to work.
“This is Microsoft's future. A lot of people don't realise the extent of what Project Operations has to offer. It’s all about tying up different people across the organisation to make sure that they’re working from the same data. That’s something which makes life easier for everyone, no matter what stage of a project they become involved.”
“My favourite thing about Project Operations isn’t a feature, but the simple fact that it’s such a fantastic fusion of several great Microsoft products, built to streamline some of the most important aspects of project management. And what’s even better is that the licence cost has been accumulated into one, as well, simplifying costs for customers who need a software that offers a helping hand on the finance side, as well as with the project planning and logistics.” Peter Norman
