Dynamics 365 Business Central took the world by storm in 2018, with global businesses discovering and then flaunting its powerful features. It was then the best example of a digital enterprise resource planning (ERP) tool.
Despite being praised for its ERP tool, Microsoft and other tech developers have introduced further enhancements by releasing apps that can be integrated directly with Business Central, to further improve all users’ Business Central experience.
Below are some of the top apps you can integrate with Business Central:
PaperSave is a comprehensive digital transformation solution that lets businesses leverage functions like electronic document management, workflow optimization, and transaction automation. It helps facilitate the seamless flow of information in an organization while minimizing the need for paper, which cuts their business costs and reduces their carbon footprint.
According to several case studies, PaperSave has been instrumental in helping companies save money (it helped one business save over $100,000 in a year), time (it helped another business decrease approval time by 70% and recover 15% of employee time per week through automation), and space (it helped another company eliminate the need for 35 file cabinets and an entire storage room).
Microsoft Power BI is a collection of software services, applications, and connectors that work in unison to turn unrelated sources of data into coherent and visually immersive insights. The suite consists of a desktop application (Power BI Desktop), an online Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform (Power BI Service), and a collection of mobile apps for Windows, iOS, and Android devices (Power BI mobile apps).
Together, users can create, share, and consume business insights that serve the user’s role most effectively. These three components are further optimized by the Power BI Report Server, which allows users to publish Power BI reports.
Jet Reports is an advanced operational and financial reporting app used to deliver flexible and robust reports within Microsoft Excel. With this extension, users can create Business Central-usable reports without leaving Excel straight out of the box, helping to eliminate errors, cut reporting time, guarantee accurate data, and achieve rapid success.
This extension utilizes an easy interface that allows users to simply drag and drop data from any table to quickly build a variety of reports — from simple ones for basic financial data to advanced operational reports. Best of all, data can be refreshed in real time, on demand, with the click of a button.
Microsoft Power Automate
Microsoft Power Automate — previously called Microsoft Flow — is an app that leverages robotic process automation (RPA) functions called UI flows to help users save time and effort when performing daily tasks. Users can even record step-by-step actions such as mouse clicks, keystrokes, and recurring data entries, and replay those actions to turn them into intelligent workflows — less of the tedious repetitive stuff for employees and more time for what they do best.
Power Automate is Microsoft’s latest venture into discovering the boundaries of artificial intelligence (AI) — and the many ways it can increase efficiency and accuracy of tasks, simplify business processes, and accommodate users to build scripts with ease.
Lastly, Office 365 (O365) is Microsoft’s trusty and timeless document processing suite. O365 is comprised by the tech giant’s best and most enduring applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneDrive, OneNote, SharePoint, Teams, Yammer, and more — except now, they are more powerful and much easier to optimize for industry-specific use than ever.
