More Infor M3 Pros »

"The stability is very good.""Support is really good.""It was an okay solution when we delivered hardware and we had to do maintenance.""Dynamics AX provides a lot of functionality.""There's a moderate amount of scalability available.""It is stable, suitable for businesses, and covers all business needs.""If anyone is familiar with Microsoft products then they can handle it easily.""It is easy to use, and it has a great UI. It has very well-structured modules. In terms of setup and configuration, they're logically placed, which makes it easy for any user to pick up information and learn more about the system, rather than just be plain key users of that business operating system."

More Microsoft Dynamics AX Pros »

"The solution is stable but not agile.""The implementation could be simplified, it's complex."

More Infor M3 Cons »

"There might be some features to support localizations that could be helpful to add.""The integration could improve for the future.""There should be the capability for users to enhance the application by using a low-code or no-code product from the Microsoft family.""The product is standardised across industries so it is not a good fit for all types of sectors.""The solution in general just needs a few quality improvements.""It is being decommissioned.""It could be more scalable and stable. It would also be better if the interface were more integrated with the Microsoft ecosystem because 2012 is not really integrated.""They should include some modules related to solving customer problems or resolving support tickets from our customers — like a help desk for ERPs."

As partners, we will buy this on behalf of the customers and then charge this value for each project.""I don't know how much this solution costs off the top of my head, but I know that the cloud and SaaS solutions are cheaper.""It is $180 to $200 per user per month with a minimum of 20 users, which makes selling the product a bit difficult.""It has a pay-as-you-go subscription.""The pricing is expensive."
