Since we’ve given you an introduction to Dynamics 365 Business Central, we thought we’d follow up with some more concrete reasons why you should consider upgrading your business software.
Whether your business is using a legacy ERP system or entry-level accounting software, here are 10 reasons why Dynamics 365 Business Central should be on the shopping list for your business.
1. Expertise & Knowledge
It’s safe to say that Microsoft knows what they’re talking about.

By implementing this solution, organisations can benefit from the research and development that Microsoft has put into improving efficiency across business processes across a wide range of industry sectors.
2. Implementation & Integration
Since Dynamics 365 Business Central is cloud-based, it can be ready to go within a few hours.
When you combine this swift and simple implementation with the fact that any upgrades will happen without the need for reinstallation, you’ll not only save time but money too.
It has the recognisable look and feel of other Microsoft products, so employees are likely to grasp its functionality quickly and easily.
It integrates seamlessly with other Microsoft solutions being used by the business but can also integrate easily with third-party solutions, giving users a truly 360-degree view of their processes in real time.
3. Scalable & Flexible
Businesses can mould Dynamics 365 Business Central to meet their specific needs.
While you can scale the solution to fit your current organisational structure, it couldn’t be easier to upscale when things change. Which means the system can grow at the same speed and pace as your business.
