I have overseen 6 implementations of AX in mid-market consumer Products organizations over the past 10 years. It has been an interesting time to watch the product grow into a Tier one solution from the Axapta version. The growth of the product and acceptance by the market has been remarkable. What I find most appealing with AX is the breadth of function coverage it offers coupled with the depth depth of capability. The SMB market often requires the same features as enterprise category organizations and AX can be configured to provide all of the components needed for the range of company sizes. The addition of a high quality WMS module provides an essential piece of the puzzle that most SMB solutions lack. Also, the Retail mPOS offering is a robust solution. Coupled with it's full integration and configurable user interface, mPOS provides a true 360 degree solution to companies with multiple selling channels.
The new AX7 and Dunamics 375 sets Microsoft apart from other providers. The new web interface and straightforward toolset will provide users a significant advantage.
Constant improvement of the product, interface and integration to other solutions. The quality of WMS and order management.
The constant improvements pose challenges to keep current with releases.
Ensure you align yourself with the proper partner - who knows your industry and is flexible to your needs. As with any software, prepare and be open to Organizational Change to best adopt the tools of new technology.

I use AX everyday in the office administration field. With the fact that I have been using it for a couple of years now, for the most part I can navigate through it easily. The database can hold tons of detailed customer information, and is pretty viewer friendly.
All of the information is always saved automatically when you close something, which is very helpful.
When AX first launched as a whole there were many bugs that had to be worked out, including me being kicked out of the system right in the middle of working on something. Also sometimes it becomes a hassel to have to have multiple screens open just to to enter or edit certain information.

Microsoft Dynamics would have a much greater review if it was compatible with other browsers being the foundation of the product.
The system is easy to navigate. Very straight forward if you become familiar with "SO" and "PO" or "RMA" uses this is very easy.
Since this program is only able to run SUCCESSFULLY on Internet Explorer it is EXTREMELY slow. It makes it hard to be patient. Since most of my work was done through AX is became very frustrating having to inform the client that we couldn't help them AT THE MOMENT due to the software running on a slow server.

Although Software is no doubt is an excellent software but our our vendor who implemented is not properly trained on it.
Software has all the things combine in it that older Microsoft GP has in different applications. Like Financial, Inventory and Procurement and sourcing.
Microsoft should stop giving rights to these software companies that not properly trained. Software as compare to SAP have is little bit difficult manager.
SQL DB sizes grow too much.

Great training was given on-site and within the software.
This is a professionally written ERP that fits into all areas of our core processes. The reliability and data mining features are great.
Much had to be spent to configure it for our company. The time also seemed excessive to implement fully.
