What can Business Central do?

Business Central enables your business to transform a variety of departmental functions into a single system. It also builds-in efficiency with automated tasks and workflows.

And because it is part of the Microsoft ecosystem, Dynamics will integrate seamlessly with Windows, Power BI, PowerApps and all the familiar Office 365 programmes including Word, Outlook and Excel.

  • Automate tasks and workflows
  • Integrate with Office apps
  • Connect departments with a single dashboard
  • Use data to make informed decisions

Via the wider suite of apps, Business Central also gives you the possibility of adding many other Dynamics applications to your bespoke solution – and of upgrading to the full power of Microsoft Dynamics 365 if you grow beyond small business level.

Furthermore, Business Central can be implemented as an upgrade to your existing entry-level accounting software or legacy ERP system.
