Visit Website View Our Posts

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (BC) is an all-in-one business management solution for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). It combines ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) and CRM(Customer Relationship Management) capabilities into a single integrated cloud-based platform.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 BC has a comprehensive array of tools and functionalities to manage every aspect of your business, including finance, sales, customer service, operations, and project management. With Business Central, you can automate and streamline your business processes, make strategic data-backed decisions, and improve the efficiency and productivity of your entire organization.

Dynamics NAV or Dynamics 365 Business Central?

Dynamics NAV and Dynamics 365 BC are both Microsoft ERP solutions, but there are some significant differences.

  • Dynamics NAV is an on-premises ERP solution that is installed on your in-house servers and available to those in your network. Dynamics 365 BC is a cloud-based solution hosted on your cloud provider’s server and available to you and your teams anytime, on any device, wherever there is internet.
  • Dynamics 365 BC includes all the apps you find in NAV, but they have been redesigned to work fluidly and coherently in the cloud.
  • Dynamics NAV can be customized only by developers. You can extend Dynamics 365 BC with third-party add-ons and extensions.


Some of the invaluable features of Microsoft Dynamics 365 BC:

Financial Management:

Dynamics 365 BC lets you manage all your financial operations, including general ledger, accounts receivable and payable, budgeting, cash flow forecasting, and fixed assets in one place

Sales and Customer Service:

You can track and manage sales opportunities, create orders and quotes, processes invoices, and organize customer service and support.

Inventory and Supply Chain Management:

Efficiently and effectively manage inventory, track items across multiple locations, optimize supply chain processes, and streamline your procurement procedures.

Project Management:

Dynamics 365 BC lets you plan and manage projects, allocate resources, track project costs, and analyze project performance.

Reporting and Analytics:

Powerful reporting and analytics capabilities give insight into your business data and allow you to customize reports and dashboards.

Integration and Customization:

Dynamics 365 BC integrates seamlessly with other Microsoft tools and services, such as Office 365 and Power Platform. And it is easily customizable, so you can tailor it to your specific business preferences.

As a cloud-based solution, Business Central has the advantages of scalability, accessibility from anywhere with an internet connection, automatic updates, and outstanding data security.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central was designed to help SMEs streamline their operations, facilitate collaboration, and use data to drive strategic decisions for business growth and success.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 BC is more than an updated version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV. It is more flexible, user-friendly, powerful, and versatile than Dynamics NAV.

If you are using Microsoft Dynamics NAV, it’s worth taking a look at the advantages of Microsoft Dynamics 365 BC. Here are six compelling reasons to move from Dynamics NAV to Dynamics 365 Business Central.

1. Stay Updated

Since April 2021,  Microsoft has not been marketing Dynamics NAV to new customers. Existing NAV users can still purchase new licenses for their solution, but Microsoft’s support for Dynamics NAV has ended. That means Microsoft will no longer release upgrades and fixes for Dynamics NAV.

2. Dynamics 365 BC Automatic Upgrades

With Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, upgrades occur every six months. And for Dynamics 365 BC Cloud versions, upgrades are automatic. Dynamics 365 BC’s AL coding makes upgrades in Business Central much easier to manage than in Dynamics NAV.

3. Modern Cloud-based solution

Cloud-based Dynamics 365 BC is accessible, scalable, and secure. Your teams can access it 24/7 from any device. It has increased flexibility and scalability, allowing companies to tailor it to their requirements and preferences. And it boasts unmatched security and governance.

Your company can also deploy Dynamics 365 Business Central as an on-premises solution, but you will miss out on the benefits of a true cloud solution.

4. Seamless Integration

Business Central integrates seamlessly with Microsoft 365, Power BI, Power Apps, etc. So it can offer real-time analytics and an end-to-end view of all your business processes. Unlock productivity, facilitate collaboration, eliminate data silos, and more with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

5. Cost-Effective

With Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, your company can pay monthly per user. That allows you to manage your costs more accurately. In addition, automatic upgrades are included in your subscription cost.  You’ll always have the latest and the most secure version without additional investment. And by employing Business Central in the Cloud, you will no longer have to invest in and maintain in-house servers.

6. Modern User Interface

Business Central’s modern, intuitive interface works on any device with no difference in user experience.
