Last year, Microsoft announced the next generation of its Dynamics product line, called Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. Business Central is the successor product to Microsoft Dynamics NAV, Microsoft Dynamics GP, and Microsoft Dynamics SL.
The product is primarily web-based (delivered in Saas – Software as Services Solution) and accessed through dynamics.com, though an on-premises version is available, which includes the option to use the NAV role-tailored “thick” client. One huge advantage of the solution is that it can be used in the cloud and onsite by the same company making it one of the most flexible enterprise resource planning solutions on the market.
As with any new product, there is a learning curve for us and our clients. As we’ve started to get more familiar and comfortable with Business Central, we wanted to share some of our top “found and fun” features that we think our clients will appreciate:
- Price! We feel that the value and pricing structure of Business Central is and will be the number one reasons clients switch. Hosting in the cloud could save a small business $25,000 in server and related investments. We priced replacing/upgrading our systems internally and realized close to a $38,000 savings between hardware and related costs, by moving to the Saas solution.
- Ease of Getting Around. This is one of the most intuitive navigation systems we’ve seen. Going from related tasks such as customers, to purchase orders, to inventory checks is seamless in every sense of the word. Watch the Business Central in action videos on the sidebar.
- Unified Digital Technologies. Business Central has taken integration to a whole new level that is truly “unified” digital technologies. It’s the evolution of how businesses do business in the digital age. This video by Microsoft does a great job of demonstrating the unification of solutions and technologies.
- GPDR Compliance is built in. Use built-in privacy-by-design and privacy-by-default methodologies to help your business comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Grant and restrict access to personal data on multiple levels and enable audit trails to ensure security and accountability. Handle, store, and transmit data securely. Move and store personal data freely across your systems while protecting it from unauthorized access with Microsoft datacenters’ automatic encryption.
