What makes E Foqus the perfect provider?

The bundling of your ERP, CRM and Office is a good idea for your business, but it's also important to choose a cloud solution provider that is able to deliver these elements as a single solution.

It is important to choose a supplier with the following characteristics:

  • A company with the ability to provide support within all areas: ERP, CRM and Office. If the supplier only specializes in one of these areas, it becomes difficult to meet the customer's needs.
  • A company who have developed their own solution, either for specific industries or specialized business functions. AppSource opens a whole new market for this type of supplier.
  • A company who is able to provide consulting and advice. With the large amount of apps available, the need for ad-hoc development and adjustments will decrease. The supplier will now need to provide more advice and consulting regarding system customization.

At E Foqus we are thrilled with this development in the market, as there is no doubt we can help assist you in all these areas. Microsoft Dynamics 365 will have an impact on Microsoft's partner channel over the coming years, but as a Cloud Solution Provider, we welcome the changes and new possibilities.
