No matter what size your company is, from an SME to a global corporation, there probably will never be a need not to focus on increasing efficiency and productivity. It’s a well known fact in the world of business that productivity is the key to profitability and therein lies the reason why any platform that can increase efficient operations can also play a major role in significantly growing a company’s bottom line.

It stands to reason that the more efficient you are, the more productive you are. And as productivity will bring in greater revenue, that should be your goal. With that said, consider the following three platforms that can help you do all that and so much more.

1. Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

The 2024 Creative Retail Awards are open for entries.

The Creative Retail Awards are much more than a mere accolade; they represent the pinnacle of achievement in the retail industry. Garnering a nomination or winning one of these awards is a testament to innovation, excellence, and leadership.


Microsoft Dynamics Business Central is, without a doubt, the most popular mid-market ERP platform in the world. At the moment, there are more than 165,000 companies of all sizes using Microsoft Business Central to boost productivity all within a single application. Not only can companies make better decisions with this platform but with automated tasks, many processes can be set up seamlessly in the background. One Microsoft partner, Sci-Net Business Solutions, has helped countless companies in the UK significantly grow their bottom line with solutions like Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. Not only can this particular platform help you automate much of your workflow, but it also helps to increase interactions with customers leading to a much higher level of CX.

2. Microsoft Azure

This is one amazing Cloud-based infrastructure that can extend your company’s IT without a significant rise in capital expense. For any company that has a remote workforce or a mobile salesforce, this is a platform that can be accessed from literally any location as long as there is an internet connection. It keeps everyone on the same page and all without unnecessary communications. All any user with an appropriate level of access needs to do is log on and any file or communication is right there at their fingertips. If you are looking to increase efficient operations, you can have no better platform than one based in the Cloud.

3. Slack Video Conferencing Platform

Even when working in the Cloud there will be times when ‘face to face’ communications become necessary. Sometimes it’s a meeting with an important client and other times it’s a collaborative process with other team members. It could even be a vital collaboration between business partners, but the bottom line is the same. Instead of being a global jetsetter, just log onto your video conferencing platform and you can do in minutes what would take you hours, if not days to accomplish if you had to actually travel.

Perhaps the best way to say all of the above would be to say that whatever you can do in the Cloud can save you time, effort and money. Each of the above platforms can increase efficiency and productivity with the benefit of boosting profitability. If you want to grow your company, reach for the Cloud.
