D365 CloudShift

Upgrade from Dynamics AX to Dynamics 365

D365 CloudShift is a migration package developed by Calsoft Systems to move your business onto a modern cloud-based ERP platform.  Specifically, we can help transition your business from Dynamics AX to Dynamics 365 Finance & Supply Chain Management (formerly known as Finance and Operations).

Why Should I Upgrade Now?

As of January 10th, 2023, Microsoft no longer supports any version of AX with security patches or technical assistance. This means that your business is no longer secure and Dynamics AX will eventually lose compatibility with other programs. 

By upgrading, business users will enjoy the improved functionality and greater efficiency of Dynamics 365.  

In addition, you can take advantage of a 40% discount for the first 3 years due to a current Microsoft promotion. (Valid through December 2024. Contact a Calsoft Representative to determine eligibility)

Is Dynamics 365 right for my business?

In a word: yes! 

It has the same core features and terminology as AX, but Dynamics 365 also has these additional benefits:

  • Manage all your business processes from any cloud-connected device

  • Minimize data risks with Microsoft’s industry-leading cybersecurity standards

  • Get a complete view of your data, allowing your team to operate at their best

  • Continually updated so you’re always on the latest version, eliminating the hassle of upgrading Dynamics AX

  • Eliminate on-premises hardware expenses with a predictable subscription billing plan

  • Quickly adjust to the size of your present and future business demands with scalable Azure cloud storage space

  • Integrated with many Microsoft applications your business already uses, such as Word, Outlook, Excel, and Teams

  • Free up your IT talent for more important tasks 

  • Access over 600 new features, modules and integrations to give further insight into your operations

How does D365 CloudShift work?

Microsoft has a recommended 3-stage process for transitioning their Dynamics AX legacy users to modern Dynamics 365 Finance and Supply Chain Management applications. 

  1. First, Calsoft’s experienced ERP team analyzes your system: evaluating your upgrade need, determining the estimated costs, and creating a thorough project plan
  2. Next, we execute the plan: using our in-house migration template to upgrade your code, migrating your old data as needed
  3. Finally, we validate the update: double-checking and testing everything before going live with your new modern system!

We provide user training and optional post-implementation support to ensure a smooth transition to Dynamics 365 Finance & Supply Chain Management.


How long will my upgrade take?

Since your AX system is uniquely customized to your current operations, Calsoft will work with you to establish a detailed project timeline.
