Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central: Is It Time to Upgrade?

Visit Website View Our Posts

Benefits come with updating from Dynamics' legacy on-premises ERP to Microsoft's modern, full-function, cloud-based solution. Dynamics 365 Business Central is a great idea when the time is right. Is this the time?

This post will highlight some of the benefits of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Hardware costs continue to rise, and server maintenance and upgrades may consume a large portion of your IT budget. The logical choice is a cloud-based system with automatic updates and no additional backup and recovery expenses. Microsoft considered all this when developing its next-generation accounting software, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

What is Dynamics 365 Business Central?

Dynamics 365 Business Central is based on the trusted and proven Dynamics NAV but with a cloud twist. This 100% cloud-based solution eliminates the need and expense for an emergency backup and recovery plan for your data. You'll get two free automatic updates a year. These updates are installed behind the scenes and without interruption to your business. (At Alta Vista, we give our Business Central clients a preview of new features before they launch). And unlike upgrading an on-premises system, you don't need an onsite IT tech to take your system down and update it.

Another benefit of a cloud system is that it's entirely browser-based. You won't have to rely on expensive server hardware, maintenance, or repair. You can access your entire accounting database remotely and securely from anywhere with internet access. Microsoft's Dynamics Business Central App lets you access reports with your phone. This technology is a game-changer in a world based on remote work.

Dynamics Business Central Modules for Increased Functionality

A cloud-based ERP solution is built using modules to add functionality as you need it. As your company expands and requires additional functionality for your accounting processes, you can add it quickly, efficiently, and affordably by plugging in a new module. You can easily scale from a small or mid-sized business to an enterprise-level operation without continually replacing your accounting system.

Microsoft Dynamics Business Central Essentials comes with 9+ modules and over 100 functions to meet the needs of virtually any industry. Dynamics Business Central Premium also offers advanced capabilities for service or manufacturing organizations. Whatever your company's size or industry, Dyamics 365 Business Central has you covered with appropriate modules and functionality.

How Much Does Dynamics 365 BC Cost?

Microsoft Dynamics Business Central has two licensing types: Full User and Team Member.

Full User licensing grants both read and write capabilities. Employees who need these capabilities may be sales departments, customer service reps, accountants, controllers, and supply chain managers. Full User licenses are for those using the software daily as part of their primary job function. Full-user licenses start at $70 per user per month. Discounts apply to non-profit organizations.

Team Members in your company don't deal with accounting as a primary function of their job. They will use some functionality to view data, perform light tasks, enter time and expenses, or update records. They may use the system regularly but do not need full access or capabilities. Team Member licenses start at $8 per user per month.

As far as costs, you'll have to figure in the implementation. It may take hours to transfer your data to the system and get it up and running. Implementation prices vary, but our Alta Vista experts have developed and perfected an implementation plan to save you money.  Check out our new Tiered Implementation Packages to explore functionality and pricing.
