Business Central pricing versus the competition’s

Business Central pricing versus the competition’s

For many small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), every dollar counts. Operations teams need planning and management systems to optimize processes, but these systems shouldn’t be cost-prohibitive either. With every dollar on the line, it is important to understand how Business Central enterprise resource planning (ERP) costs measure up against competitor prices.

Below is a pricing comparison of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and its most popular competitors:

SAP Business One

SAP Business One has three general price sets:

  • Business One one-time purchase – lets users own the Business One license (one user) in perpetuity, although annual maintenance for bug fixes and patch releases and updates are regularly made available for an additional fee.
    • Professional: $3,213
    • Limited: $1,666
    • Starter: $1,357 (for up to five users)
  • Business One via subscription – prepaid annually for a one-year subscription commitment, and includes annual maintenance in the price. Most subscriptions are purchased in conjunction with cloud hosting, which incurs additional charges.
    • Professional: $1,128 per user per year
    • Limited: $648 per user per year
    • Starter: $468 per user per year (for up to five users)

Sage Intacct

Intacct has an extremely complicated pricing module, but most significantly, license prices are extremely restricted from public access. This means you need to first send out enough information about your specific needs to Sage or its third-party vendors before you get a quote — and you’ll only get a quote specific to your stated needs. Pricing therefore is unclear, as well as the specific terms and conditions you’ll need to abide by to keep using Intacct.

Intacct has a base application price of $425 per month and $210 per user license per month. Contracts are year-long each and are renewed annually. This means that a one-year bare minimum subscription to the product will cost the company $7,620 for ONE USER. Implementation and training costs are EXCLUSIVE. Extra industry-specific modules come at additional cost.

Sage deploys Intacct as holistically as possible, so subscribing companies will receive three cost sets: licensing costs, implementation costs, and training costs. The application itself and all the fix-ins and add-ons (e.g., extra data capacity, extra modules, multi-entity capabilities, non-profit formatting, for-profit formatting, etc.) fall under licensing cost.
