    The Top Five Reasons Why You Should Add a Dynamics 365 Aisle to your Superstore?

    1. Dynamics customers have among the highest lifetime value of any Microsoft client. It isn’t uncommon for relationships to last into multiple decades.  They consume professional services on an ongoing annual basis well beyond the initial implementation. 
    2. Dynamics connects you to your customer’s C-suite, helping you build relationships and trust at the highest level of your customer’s organization.
    3. Dynamics improves and automates a company’s business operations – and since businesses are always changing – their operations change – resulting in revenue opportunities for you.
    4. Dynamics customers are likely to consume other Microsoft services and solutions such as Power Apps, Power BI, Azure IOT, etc.
    5. Adding the Dynamics 365 annuity to your existing portfolio improves your margins (Dynamics margins are among the highest of all Microsoft solutions), drags along consulting revenue, and provides a platform for more solutions.
