Another benefit of 365WineTrade being powered by Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central cloud includes automatic software updates. Microsoft rolls out two major releases as well as minor updates and enhancements every month. This eliminates the need for expensive software upgrades every few years and you’ll always be running at maximum performance.
One of the many reasons companies choose to run their business on Microsoft technologies — the continuous investment in innovation and improvements. Automatic updates are particularly helpful for busy wine & spirits distributors. Your business is always growing and changing, and you need to know your business systems are working for you instead of the other way around.
Update on Your Terms
Microsoft is committed to delivering predictable updates to the service. These updates are continuous, touchless updates that provide new features and functionality.
Microsoft will inform you well in advance of the release of when the major updates are available to Dynamics 365 Business Central, so you can test these features and apply only what you want, when you want. Western Computer is committed to your success and always here to help you as well.
Here’s how it works.
You Get Advance Notification of Updates
About 60 days prior to an update, Microsoft will provide all the details of the new features and enhancements in the upcoming release. Western Computer then will test each update internally with 365WineTrade to ensure it will be a smooth transition for all our customers. And your dedicated Customer Success Manager or Cloud Transformation Executive from Western Computer will walk through everything with you at a high level to answer questions and provide recommendations.
You Can Test Updates in a Demo or Production Environment First
This is a very important benefit. You can test updates and new features in a sandbox or demo environment before applying any updates to your live environment. This ensures you can see and test exactly how the updates would work with your data and system without impacting or disrupting anything in your live environment. We call this success insurance!
You Can Schedule Your Updates
You are in control and manage how and when your organization receives these updates. Maybe you decided there are certain features or aspects of the update you don’t want right now or you need more time for testing. Microsoft gives you the ability to control when your updates are scheduled.
You Get to Test New Features in Advance
Sometimes, Microsoft may release some of the features in a major update early. By enabling you to turn on a feature ahead of time in a demo x environment you can test these new features and prepare for the change they will have. Some of the new features have really benefited our wine & spirits distributor customers, particularly with features like a new pricing table and new item cross reference capabilities.
