Microsoft Updates


Great Things Ahead 

The Dynamics 365 ‘world’ is evolving at an incredible pace, and the new technologies taking hold are more impressive than ever before.  I am so glad to be a part of the Microsoft channel, helping customers implement and leverage new technologies, helping individuals realize their potential through training and best practices, and working with a community that cares about their members and the future of meaningful empowerment of end-users. 

I spend a lot of my time putting myself back into the shoes of the customer – as a former end-user, this is something that I find very important during any type of support we offer to our customers… and preparing for the fast changes that lay ahead is no different. 

No matter how incredible the new technologies are, it is useless if we are not able to feel the value and put it into practice for our own teams.  That’s where we can help.  Our team of industry experts is always working on staying ahead of the technology curve so that we can share that with you and help you make timely, informed decisions. 

Whether it’s an on-premises solution (such as Dynamics GP) or the latest cloud offering (such as F&O or Business Central), our team is ready to help you reach YOUR goals using the Microsoft stack in a way that makes the most sense for you.  We work hard at this every day, and we look forward to the opportunity to help you in the next chapter on your software solution journey.   


Here at, we strive to be the best for our customers – and we are very thankful for all of you, all year, for sure… but more specifically, this time of the year.  We appreciate all your trust and partnership, and we look forward to continuing to exceed your expectations as we move into the new year.  

While the wheels of industry keep spinning, our personal lives are no different.  We have navigated so much change – and most certainly, there will be more to come… but we keep our chin up and press on.  It’s not easy, but we do it. 

I am thankful to have another day to press on – and during thanksgiving this year, I will be thinking of those who don’t and those who hurt or feel lost… or maybe don’t feel they have anything to be thankful for… please consider doing the same.  Join me this holiday by reaching out to someone who could use some uplifting – show them you care, and it will make it just a little easier for them to press on too.   

Thank you for reading, until next time – stay safe!
