An enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution will give you a complete overview of your core business functions. Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is an all-in-one Cloud-based ERP system that allows you to connect your people, processes, and data together.

How can ERP change my business?

An ERP is normally a set of integrated business functions that automate many of your back-office processes. These could include procurement, inventory management, and production, for example. With a single source of accurate information in a central database, you can have a real-time view of all your operations.

An effective ERP system will help you to analyse your business data to create more streamlined processes and to improve efficiency.

Which ERP system should I choose?

Considering how much difference an ERP solution can make to your business, it’s not surprising that there are a lot to choose from. Knowing which one will suit your business can be a challenge.

To make your decision you will need to look at how your business works and identify any issues that you have. You will also need to understand how well your existing business solutions meet your needs, how they work together and the in-house skills you already have.

If your plans for the future include significant growth, then your solutions will need to be scalable. If you have exceptional requirements, customisation will also be a priority for you. Finally, you will need to consider how an ERP solution can save money and help you to make money.

What does Business Central offer?

With Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central you can implement innovation quickly. You can speed up new product development, respond to market changes, and bid for new business anywhere, anytime.

If you currently use multiple stand-alone tools and systems to run your business, you will know that they can be difficult to connect together and even harder to integrate with new systems.

Business Central streamlines your business processes by bringing together finance, customer service, operations, sales and marketing to make your business more efficient and productive. With all your information in one place, you can make better business decisions too.

The easy-to-create dashboards and built-in analytics mean that you can adjust your business plans, based on real and accurate information.
