Advantage 1: Cloud Capabilities
More and more companies are ditching their on-premise hosted ERP software systems in exchange for Cloud ERP systems. Cloud ERP connects all aspects of a business into all-in-one business process automation. Organizations of any size will benefit from Dynamics 365 Business Central's cloud ERP with built-in security, mobile, and scalable technology while avoiding the massive investment required to support on-premise servers and solutions.
Deloitte found in a research study that companies that adopt an “above average number of cloud services grow 26% faster, and are 21% more profitable (on average) than those that do not use cloud tools.”
Cloud ERP solutions modernize your business with enterprise-grade security designed to keep your data, identity, and devices safe. You save benefitting from Microsoft’s investment in security. You get more peace of mind with the knowledge your data will always be protected with the latest Microsoft defense technology.

How much could your business save if you offload your on-site servers and eliminate the need to monitor and maintain these tools? When you remove these non-value-added activities, your IT team can focus on more strategic tasks like expanding your services. And you can get started on day one because cloud solutions are managed by your partner.
Advantage 2: Connected Systems
Dynamics 365 Business Central combines your financial, inventory, operations, and project management processes into a single solution that can streamline your daily tasks to save you time, money, and frustration. Industry-leading access controls enable your team to work securely from home or out in the field while still having the full capabilities of an on-site employee.

Advantage 3: Better Decisions
In contrast to disconnected business systems, your decision-makers will get a true end-to-end view of your organization. The integration of your accounting data into a cloud solution creates the ability to see real-time analytics and reporting. This centralized reporting, real-time reporting, and visual dashboards help you see critical trends in inventory status and cash flow for example. Your teams get an accurate, instant, and up-to-date picture of your organization’s trends and opportunities that were previously hidden in spreadsheets and disconnected systems.

Business Central’s integration also empowers your team to respond to customer requests quickly, optimize your day-to-day operations and share data instantly regardless of your device or location. A unified solution not only makes accessing your data simpler it also keeps your reporting, analytics, and insights relevant so your team can make informed decisions related to strategy and execution.
Advantage 4: Lower Costs
Typically, cloud services are billed on a monthly basis based on the number of users you need. This ability to pay only for what you need and adapt as your business grows can keep costs low as you grow. And when you automate aspects of bookkeeping, inventory management, sales and other tasks into a single solution, it reduces the time it takes to complete previously time-intensive tasks.
For a growing business, the flexibility to pay for and use only what you need provides peace of mind that you’ll always have the right service at the right time. Flexible licensing plans, a modern solution, adaptable business apps, and a scalable database mean you can better manage your growth by adding additional users as the need arrives. Based on a per-user, per-month structure, you can start your service small and adapt your solution as you expand your business.
