As of July 2021, Microsoft Dynamic RMS (Retail Management System) has reached it’s end of life date. Many RMS users are confused as to what this means for their business and what’s coming next from Microsoft.
Since RMS has reached its end of life, you will not be able to purchase any new licenses. This might not be an problem for some stores, but in the case of new or expanding stores this will be an issue. The end of life date also means Microsoft will no longer release updates for RMS. No updates could lead to issues with new hardware or leave your system vulnerable to security threats that may arise. Extensions could also be affected or not repaired when problems occur.
While System Solutions will continue to support Microsoft RMS for years to come, the next generation of retail management software from Microsoft is already here! Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is Microsoft’s retail Management solutions for small to medium sized businesses.
