Our Approach

At 425 Consulting Group, our approach to transaction systems is to first maximize the use of the existing systems. Often, a great deal of value can be squeezed out of existing systems without significant investment. Only when existing systems are not meeting your objectives do we recommend the implementation of a new, modern set of systems.

Where the Story of Your Business is Recorded

Every business has transaction systems. There are accounting systems, payroll systems, fixed asset, inventory, and warehouse systems.

Most businesses have budgeting and forecasting systems. Salespeople use systems to manage potential customer lists and marketers use systems to track the effectiveness of their business development efforts. These systems are the historical record and, sometimes, a crystal ball looking into the future of your organization. These systems typically make up a company’s “ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning)” platform.

The goal is to have these systems work together seamlessly, align with underlying Business Processes, and capture the information communicated through Business Intelligence & Analytics to support Business Decisions and Objectives.

What is Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Software?

ERP software is a category of business management applications that collect business information at the transaction level that can then be used to monitor business activities. When software applications connect your processes, systems, and data, you can then harness the business intelligence you need to adapt to change and optimize your operations.

D365 Business Central

When there is a need for a new set of systems, we offer Microsoft Dynamics 365 (D365). Dynamics 365 is a set of intelligent business applications that work seamlessly together for a comprehensive solution that runs your entire business—including accounting, sales, marketing, service, operations, and commerce. You’ll get a 360-degree view of your organization to uncover the real-time insights that bring better results.

What is Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Software?

CRM software enables companies to manage all the “touch points” with prospective and active customers. From marketing campaigns, to lead generation, to managing quote and sales pipelines, through ongoing customer service, CRM applications provide companies with the tools and structured process to attract and retain customers. When software applications connect your processes, systems, and data, you can then harness the business intelligence you need to identify new opportunities to further drive sales growth.
