Dynamics 365 Business Central merges the best of Microsoft Dynamics 365 applications and ERP processes to bring a comprehensive and highly adaptable business management solution to help mid-market business requirements connect, optimise and make smarter decisions.
According to Microsoft, the all-in-one cloud-based solution with built-in intelligence puts flexibility at the business core. It enables organisations to start and trade quickly, grow at their own pace, and adapt in real time to meet unique industry-specific needs.
1. Get an Overview of all Business Data
For businesses using ERP and CRM tools to manage their data and operations in silos, Dynamics 365 Business Central unifies these applications on a single business-ready platform with all the necessary data aggregated in one dashboard.
The Business Central platform connects financial, sales, service and operations, providing an end-to-end view of the entire business, offering on-demand instant access to relevant data based on security-enforced user access controls.
Users can easily connect to the platform, input and analyse data streams, track operational performance, improve forecast accuracy, maximise productivity, and make informed decisions based on recommendations.
Business Central offers a variety of ERP and CRM capabilities specifically for small and medium sized businesses. This provides users with an all-in-one business management solution.
2. Automate and Optimise Business Operations
Dynamics 365 Business Central assists businesses to manage projects better and to do so on time and within budget, by monitoring progress with real-time data on available resources and improving efficiency with automatic tasks and built-in forms and timesheets for everyday tasks.
For example, businesses can manage their finances and accelerate their year-end financial reporting using prebuild and customised templates to speed up the process and employ sales forecasts to generate production plans and create purchase orders automatically.
3. Enforce Data Security and Compliance
The all-in-one ERP platform, Dynamics 365 Business Central, is also effective in handling, storing and transmitting data securely across the entire system while protecting it from unauthorised access with automatic encryption.
The system grants and restricts access to personal data on multiple levels and enables audit trails to ensure security and accountability at all times. Furthermore, built-in privacy-by-design and privacy-by-default methodologies help businesses comply with current data policies such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
