March 30, 2017Lauren Austin0

April sees the launch of Microsoft Dynamics 365 in the UK.  Advantage has been watching the progress of Microsoft’s latest product since its launch in Tampa in October 2016, attending partner briefings and sharing the experiences of the Microsoft community in the USA.  The Marketing Machine at Microsoft has been in overdrive but as we approach the UK launch, Advantage will try to cut through some of the hype and provide you with a better understanding of where you stand as Microsoft Dynamics GP customer.  What does it mean to you?
