Yet, you still get dynamic, multi-language, multicurrency, business intelligence tools that are powerful, flexible, secure, easy to use, and via a consistent interface throughout the software. And as it is self-service, users require very minimal IT support and involvement. As a result, maintenance is easier, too.
