Microsoft announces Dynamics 365 Project Operations in India

Microsoft has announced the general availability of its Dynamics 365 Project Operations
solution across India. It has been developed to help service-based businesses in unifying operational
workflows to provide visibility, collaboration, and insights to drive success across teams, from prospects
to payments to profit. An all in one application, it uses real-time analytics to connect and empower
leadership, sales, resourcing, project management, and accounting teams with the visibility needed to
deliver services to customers on-time and on-budget.
Service organizations often face challenges arising from disparate systems and data silos which impact
their success. These issues lead to inadequacies in client expansion, collaboration between project
managers, visibility & mobility of team members, workforce optimization, agility among business leaders,
and timely billing. Managing projects in different systems results in lack of visibility & transparency,
increasing manual processes, lowering accuracy, slowing timelines, cost overruns, and even higher
attrition rates. Therefore, service-based businesses are accelerating cloud adoption to benefit from the
increased streamlining, productivity and efficiency that comes with cloud-based software and enterprise
business solutions.
Rajiv Sodhi – COO, Microsoft India, said, “In today’s evolving business landscape, service
organizations are looking for flexible and scalable ways to address their functional requirements. Through
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Project Operations, we are committed to helping service-based businesses
succeed in a highly competitive market. The solution will help organizations in winning new deals,
tracking & managing projects throughout their lifecycle, retaining best people, and increasing profit
margins. We believe that Microsoft Dynamics 365 Project Operations will truly enable businesses to
reimagine project management by bringing together cross-functional teams to deliver differentiated
customer experiences.”
Built on the Microsoft Power Platform, Dynamics 365 Project Operations brings together capabilities from
Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation, Dynamics 365 Finance, and Microsoft Project. It integrates
with an organization’s current enterprise systems helping drive business growth across their sales and
delivery processes, without the need to rip and replace existing systems. Businesses can also easily
scale Project Operations using Microsoft Power Platform and other Dynamics 365 applications, like
Dynamics 365 Marketing, Dynamics 365 Human Resources, and Dynamics 365 Customer Service. It can
easily adapt to changing market conditions by connecting with other Microsoft apps and services,
including Dynamics 365, Microsoft Teams, SharePoint, and Microsoft 365.
