Microsoft has acquired the rights to talent and human resources intellectual property from vendors FourVision and Elevate HR, according to an October 2 blog post.
With FourVision, Microsoft will expand Microsoft Dynamics 365’s functionality to provide leave and absence, time and attendance, and sickness management. With Elevate HR, Microsoft will provide tighter integration with Active Directory. The new functionality will integrate with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Microsoft Dynamics 365 Enterprise Resource Planning.
Microsoft continues to make strategic investments to introduce new features and functions to meet customer needs. A recent SoftwareReviews survey for Microsoft Dynamics 365 reported that it ranked second out of 18 software vendors evaluated when it came to breadth of features. A similar result is shown in the area of product strategy and rate of improvement – a measure of how software vendors stay on top of trends. At the same time, the survey showed Microsoft Dynamics 365 ranked third in Human Capital Management.
