Microsoft has announced the latest ERP offering for SMBs, code-named Project Madeira, is now available as a public beta. The service, available in the United States, delivers an embedded ERP experience within Office 365. “Project ‘Madeira’ connects business processes with the productivity tools in Office 365 to help small and medium-sized businesses grow sales, manage finances, and streamline operations,” said Marko Perisic, general manager of Microsoft Project Maderia. “Project ‘Madeira’ is a true multi-tenant public cloud service (software as a service) running on Microsoft Azure. Customers can access the service on the Web, or using apps for Windows, iOS, and Android devices.”
Project Madeira follows the October 2015 launch of Dynamics NAV 2016, another cloud-friendly ERP offering for SMBs.
