Microsoft has been a top player in ERP software for many years. And with the introduction of Dynamics 365 Business Central earlier this year, it is likely that Microsoft will remain a leader in the market in the future. Dynamics 365 Business Central is a great platform for small to medium-sized companies in every industry. These are the 4 key principles on which Dynamics 365 Business Central is based:
Dynamics 365 Business Central is a state-of-the-art product. The experience of the user comes first and that is reflected in every detail. The design and business logic have been carefully thought through, making it an extremely user-friendly and pleasant solution to work with. Microsoft will continue to invest in the development of Dynamics 365 Business Central in the upcoming years, turning the latest technologies into valuable functionalities.
Of course, Microsoft’s product range consists of much more than ERP. One of the main advantages of Dynamics 365 Business Central is that it works great in combination with other Microsoft products used by many organizations, such as Word, Excel and Outlook. But also, in combination with PowerBI for reports and Business Intelligence. This will increase the productivity of the entire organization.
PowerBI is a good example of how Dynamics 365 Business Central uses data in a smart way to provide insights that help management make the right decisions. But also in the field of Machine Learning / Artificial Intelligence it is possible to obtain insights from Dynamics 365 Business Central in support of e.g. financial data, expenses, sales data and more.
Dynamics 365 Business Central is sold and implemented through a global partner network with industry knowledge. An important strength of Dynamics 365 Business Central is its adaptability. Partners are free to add their own solutions in order to focus on a specific industry. But for individual organizations there is a lot of freedom as well in adapting Dynamics 365 Business Central to meet your own specific wishes and needs.
We are enthusiastic about Dynamics 365 Business Central as a platform, however as a 'vanilla' solution it is not valuable for most companies. Your partner with industry knowledge makes the difference. If you want to take advantage of the possibilities of Dynamics 365 Business Central, select a partner who knows your type of organization.
