With Dynamics 365 Business Central you can revolutionise how you do business; taking streamlining, automation and customer engagement to a new level! It gives you a single, end-to end solution for managing finances, operations, sales and customer service, and an opportunity to easily upgrade from entry-level accounting software and legacy ERP systems.

Connect the dots between your sales and marketing teams and act quickly on sales-related enquiries right from Outlook.

If you’re considering implementing Dynamics 365 Business Central – you’ve come to the right place! A ‘traditional’ ERP implementation process is arduous, complex and worst of all, costly. It often involves a specialist detailing your processes from start to finish in one massive, confusing document. But not with us.
Instead of writing pages and pages on your processes (which you no doubt want to avoid, too), we develop a model of your business within Dynamics 365 Business Central, so you can see exactly what you’ll be getting. We call this the 'Day in the Life Process'. With this approach, you get to see a potential solution working in your actual business context with items, suppliers and customers you know. No assumptions. No projections. Just a model you can trust!Learn more about the implementation process
We believe Dynamics 365 Business Central is the best product on the marketing due to its functionality and flexibility. As with all software, customers often purchase additional products to extend the solution. Areas include: Document Management, Expenses, Reporting, and functional areas such as Credit Control. We took the most common additional user needs and created our own range of extensions, offering that extra extended versatility of your system - we called it nHanced 365!
As well as our own extensions, we work with other third-party partners to provide you with even more add-ons to enhance your system. The list of partners are limited, and together with The NAV | 365 People, provide you with fully integrated, additional functionality to your system.Dynamics 365 Business Central Extensions
It’s been some time since Microsoft announced their licensing and pricing plans for Dynamics 365 Business Central, and with the last Dynamics NAV licence being cut – where did the word settle in terms of licensing and pricing?
Dynamics 365 Business Central licensing can be broken into two options on a named user basis - Subscription (pay per user, per month, plus includes annual maintenance fee) and Perpetual (the licence is forever yours, you're entitled to access to the latest versions, there's a set number of users). A final thing that may influence your licensing route is where to host your system: on-premise, in your Private Cloud, on a Managed Service, or Microsoft's SaaS (Public Cloud). Dynamics 365 Business Central can be purchased on two levels - Essentials and Premium, and is based on user types 'full' and 'additional'.Learn more about licensing & pricing
