Mid Market Financials/ERP

The concept behind Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is a single software program running off a single database that allows a wide range of company divisions to easily communicate with each other. Rather than support individual standalone software for each division, the ERP software program is divided into software modules that are linked together in order to facilitate the sharing of information. In this way, each division can “see” what is transpiring elsewhere in the company. The result is a streamlined flow of information that can greatly improve operational efficiency.

IDT has partnered with Microsoft and various third party ISV organizations and offers Microsoft Dynamics series of products to help our customers with improving their overall operational efficiency. IDT provides exceptional value and services centered around:
