Transition from Microsoft Dynamics NAV to Business Central

Jul 24, 2019 11:52:53 AM

Microsoft Dynamics NAV is an ERP system designed for small-to-medium sized businesses. It has been a key player in the ERP market for over three decades, offering companies a way to manage their financials, operations, supply chain, manufacturing, sales, and service. It is a customizable software that is often tailored to match companies unique requirements and processes. 

Why Upgrade to Business Central?

With the roll-out of the Dynamics 365 product line, Dynamics NAV has now become Dynamics 365 Business Central. Business Central is an all-in-one business management solution that is offered as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) product. The core functionality provides the same features as Dynamics NAV while offering benefits of a cloud solution such as easy access to your data and application through a web browser or mobile app.

Business Central integrates seamlessly with other Microsoft products such as Dynamics 365 for Sales, Office 365, and Power BI. These integrations are intended to eliminate data silos and create an end-to-end solution that drives efficiency and data connection across the entire business. Business insights are another feature that Business Central offers. Along with the Power BI integration, Business Central comes with a number of Azure intelligence tools, such as Cortana, that provide greater insights and facilitate better decision-making. 

Finally, Business Central is easily extendable with third-party add-ons and extensions. These extensions let you extend the functionality of the software in ways that can better meet your specific business needs. They are downloaded directly from Microsoft AppSource and if an extension does not fit what you are looking for, it can be easily uninstalled.
