Replacing Quickbooks with Business Central

Replacing Quickbooks with Business Central

Quickbooks is a popular accounting software choice, but many small businesses find out the hard way that it’s not all that great for businesses experiencing growth. It’s rather inflexible for agile companies and worse, expanding its usability with additional licenses and computing capacity is prohibitively expensive.

Is it Time for a New Accounting Software?

As a result, many businesses are moving to scalable and cost-effective alternatives such as Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Accounting tools on Business Central

Business Central is an enterprise resource management (ERM) software that companies can use to handle finances, inventories, supplies, and more. But as far as most ERMs go, that’s where the similarities end. Business Central takes its functionality up a notch by providing accounting tools that put even dedicated accounting software like Quickbooks to shame, especially in terms of generating data.
