Now that Strategix is offering the latest Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central solution, it is time to reassess your current ERP or business management solution. Are you still getting value from it, or is it due time for an upgrade? Here are three things you need to know.
1. Best of both worlds: Dynamics NAV + Cloud
Launched in October 2018, Business Central is part of the latest Dynamics 365 product range and is positioned as a true cloud offering for business management systems, leveraging the known agility and performance of the maturing cloud environment.
While still relatively new in the South African market, the solution is largely based on the tried-and-tested Microsoft Dynamics NAV, which is a comprehensive ERP solution for the mid-level business market with hundreds of thousands of users worldwide.
With Business Central, SMEs finally take advantage of the proven ERP system functionality updated with the latest cloud technology and new enhanced features. Business users can now switch to a more flexible and scalable platform that integrates all operations and processes need to run a business, as well as specific industry need if desired.
2. All you Need to Manage Your Business in the Cloud
The major appeal of Business Central is bringing the previously on-premise system to the cloud, which comes with a host of benefits. There is no more need to address on-premise infrastructure issues. Data back-ups and application updates are done automatically.
The focus is on flexibility, speed and performance. There is no installation process for the cloud. Running the application is done via a browser. Users integrate apps seamlessly, customise the product to their needs, and leverage third-party apps via AppSource.
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central enables customers to upgrade their entry-level accounting software and legacy ERP systems with a single, comprehensive solution to manage finances, operations, sales and customer service. It is a cloud-based, all-in-one business management solution that helps organisations streamline business processes, improve customer interactions and enable growth.
3. A better price tag for SMEs
Microsoft’s Dynamics 365 family range of ERP and CRM products includes the powerful Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations (F&O) – formerly known as the Dynamics AX – whose functionality is best suited to larger enterprises. There is virtually one solution in the Dynamics 365 range to suit any specific business requirements.
Business Central caters to the SME market with a better-priced solution without losing the best functionality. Plus, the next October release of Business Central will meet the majority of features already available in Dynamics NAV, and address the initial system limitations.
If you are already using the on-premise Dynamics NAV, transitioning to the cloud-based Business Central can help streamline operational costs, boost seamless application integration, increase team productivity and mobility. All without the usual hefty price tag.
