In the first week of April, at Summit EMEA 2017, Microsoft announced a new license option for their flagship enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, Dynamics 365 for Operations.
The new option is called “Activity” and sits between the two current levels of Full User and Team Member.
Effective May 1, 2017, the Activity license will be priced at $50/user/month. An Activity user will be able to:
- Approve invoices
- Approve all Activity related transactions
- Create or edit the items related to: warehousing, receiving, shipping, production orders, purchase orders, sales orders, project activities, vendor maintenance, and all budgets
- Operate a POS device, store manager device, shop floor device, or warehouse device
At the same time, Microsoft also announced a change in pricing for the Team Member option. The pricing tiers will be removed and a flat rate of $8/user/month introduced (from 1.05.17). This change will reduce subscription costs for all customers with up to 250 Team Members.
Customers’ existing subscriptions will continue for the term of the agreement.
