What are the benefits of a move to Business Central?

The power of dimensional accounting

Business Central offers dimensional accounting to track revenue, expenses and profitability for an unlimited number of dimensions, including by department, project and geographic location.

Easy to use, modern interface

Given that Business Central is the newer ERP product, its user interface has a more contemporary appearance. You can still customize your dashboards to ensure the information most critical to your business is front and center.

Anytime, anywhere convenience

Manage your business on-premise, remotely or in the field with Business Central’s cloud-based platform. Business Central also integrates with Office 365 for unparalleled productivity.

Improved reporting and analytics

Better understand your cash flow with Business Central’s artificial intelligence forecasting and customized performance reports.

Posting efficiencies

Gain efficiencies with Business Central’s fully online data processing, which means automatic integration of transactions to your general ledger, no series posts or hung-up batches, and no need to run Checklinks and Reconciles.

Easy edits in Excel

You can manage record updates by exporting lists to Excel, making the changes or updates in Excel, and then publishing them back to Business Central.
