Unsure about Dynamics 365 Business Central? Here’s why it’s right for your business

Microsoft hit a homerun when they released Dynamics 365 Business Central earlier this year. This all-in-one, cloud-hosted business solution continues to be the choice enterprise resource planning (ERP) system for countless businesses around the world. If you’re still on the fence about implementing this robust ERP, read along.

It’s simplified

Business Central is quick to deploy and easy to configure. There are no servers and workstations to revamp or internal networks to modernize as with traditional ERPs. The learning curve will also be short since Business Central uses tools your employees are familiar with, including Outlook, Word, and Excel.

It connects your business

Business Central provides a holistic view of your business by integrating your financials, sales, logistics, and operations. That means your employees don’t need to waste time switching between apps to access data in separate databases.

By integrating and centralizing data from every segment of your business, you get real-time insights into your business, allowing you to make smarter decisions that increase efficiency. Such integrations also allow you to automate interdepartmental workflows and eliminate monotonous tasks that slow down your business.

It’s safe and secure

Business Central's advanced encryption features enable you to manage, store, and transmit company data securely. It keeps all your data safe while helping you stay compliant with industry regulations. Additionally, you can set access restrictions for each file based on employee roles and departments to minimize the risk of data breaches.

It’s customizable

You can mold Business Central to meet your unique systems and processes. With the right vendor, you should be able to leverage industry-specific knowledge to create customized solutions that simplify your operations.

It grows with your business

When your processes become more complex and your customers expect more, scalability comes into play. Business Central can scale to keep up with your growing needs (increasing transaction volumes, additional users, etc.) as much as it can be tailored to fit your current structure. It provides access to industry-specific apps — from AppSource and third-party solutions — so you can extend its functionality with less disruption.

It’s cost-effective

Business Central saves your organization money and offers long-term value in many ways. For one, you only pay for what you use, so you never have to worry about unpredictable software expenses. What's more, the fixed monthly license fee gives you the latest product upgrades, apps, and security patches from Microsoft.

Once Business Central is deployed, you can use it instantly. The platform's familiar look and feel makes it easy to learn, so you can cross out training expenses off your budget.

Finally, you reduce costs associated with having disorganized workflows, redundant tasks, mismanaged financials, etc. For example, Business Central makes it easy to manage your inventory levels, so you can avoid extra spending on unnecessary stock.

It’s backed by Microsoft

With Business Central, your path to automation is powered by Microsoft, so you take full advantage of its massive investments in AI and machine learning. You leverage not just Dynamics 365 apps but also Office 365, PowerApps, Power BI, Microsoft Flow, an extended integration with Outlook, plus the constant updates.
