Dynamics 365 Business Central: An ERP stress cure-all?

November 13 2018

With the arrival of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, businesses have a new option for investing in cloud ERP with the strongest possible Microsoft stack integrations.

With the Fall 2018 release, Business Central cloud and Business Central on-premises deployment options became available. In Spring 2019, Business Central will include a new hybrid installation option, enabling current Dynamics NAV clients to upgrade and take advantage of the Intelligent Edge, providing cloud-based machine learning and business intelligence to their on-premises data.

Determining the right path to Business Central can lead to internal ERP stress among financial managers and business leaders. However, planning such a change is an opportune time to look at your business processes to determine if your current system is still meeting your needs or if realignment between systems and processes is needed. Finding the path to Business Central can be the springboard towards growth in a scalable, integrated solution.

There are several specific ways that Dynamics 365 Business Central can solve business issues and reduce stress, including the five areas below that identify low-hanging fruit and can immediately make a difference for your organization.

Dimensions

Pulling financial reports based on outdated data tags can be a source of frustration or cause manual rework. By assessing current global dimensions and realigning your dimensions to best fit your business, you have the opportunity to create more meaningful and accurate reports. Moving forward you can quickly and efficiently identify meaningful trends and analytics for your business.
