Discovering the power of Microsoft Dynamics 365, Power Platform and Power Apps
They say you’re only as good as your weakest link. But when it comes to software, you’re really only as good as the platform you’re built on. Gravity Software® (Gravity) is built on the Microsoft Power Platform with cutting edge technology that enhances the performance of our software. Because Gravity is the only cloud based accounting software built exclusively on the Power Platform, we’re able to offer unique capabilities that help drive strong financial results. Here’s a look at why your technology platform matters and why the Power Platform is such an asset to Gravity users.
The power of the platform
Every software application has a platform to link the User Interface (UI) to the database holding all the information. Most systems have a proprietary platform that can limit users and even the software developers in what they can provide to users. Using the Power Platform, Gravity can continue to provide state of the are features and capabilities, leveraging all the resources of Microsoft. From providing security and reliability to embedding tools like Power BI and Power Automate, Gravity’s users have access to the tens of millions of dollars of investment that Microsoft puts into the platform every year.
The biggest benefit of using Dynamics 365 and the Power Platform is connectivity. Because every app on the platform utilizes the same underlying technology, data moves seamlessly from one app to the next. This provides better data insights while also allowing you to easily add apps as needed to enhance your operation over time. The interoperability of the system also creates a single source of truth that can enhance efficiency across your enterprise. So, while you can use Gravity as your accounting automation solution, you can also improve performance in inventory management, job costing, multi-entity management or other core business operations.
The Power Platform can provide an open but secure API that allows Gravity to integrate into thousands of applications and allow developers to seamlessly work with Gravity's data using standards and technologies.
Future-proof your investment
Because the system is backed by a technology giant like Microsoft, you can be sure the software will be updated against the latest security threats and upgraded as the technology evolves. This is perfect for expanding businesses that have outgrown their entry-level software or legacy solutions and are looking for something that can grow with them over time.
Ease of use
Often when us software folks talk about things like system integrations and continuity between interfaces, we focus on the way data moves throughout the system. But there’s a much simpler reason a solution from Microsoft benefits your business: your employees are already familiar with the technology. Microsoft Office 365 and other programs have been business essentials for years, and Power Apps like Dynamics 365 offers a similar look and feel. Learning how to use any software takes time and energy, no matter how streamlined it is or how well designed. But when you can put a new system in front of your team that feels like an old friend, you can increase buy-in, reduce training time and start getting results faster.
Business intelligence tools
For companies willing to embrace new technology to gain a competitive edge, the Power Platform offers a group of state of the art applications. You can use the business intelligence tools like Microsoft Power BI to uncover key insights that might otherwise be inaccessible because of the sheer volume of data you collect. This leads to greater efficiency, better processes and ultimately better financial results for your business.
Versatile, scalable system
Gravity users benefit from the underlying technology because it allows you to do more with less. Instead of investing in an enterprise accounting system that will have tons of features you never use, Gravity perfectly meets the needs of growing businesses. But on top of that, you get all the benefits of a wide-ranging solution like Dynamics 365, helping your company be more agile and more prepared to take on new challenges.
As you consider the value of your software solutions, try to keep the big picture in mind. Does adding a single solution to address a single pain point make sense? In some cases, maybe. But what could you do if you had a true enterprise system that connected all aspects of your business in a seamless, easy-to-use interface? When you start to envision your company five, 10 or 20 years down the line, it becomes clear that an investment today in a versatile, scalable system could pay major dividends for years to come. With Gravity, you not only get industry-leading accounting software. You get an inroad to a solution that can benefit your entire operation.
