Why Should I Migrate?
Do you want to take your business next level? Having a more modern and user-friendly interface will ensure an easier transition for your employees. A few key reasons of how the migration from Dynamics GP or Azure to Dynamics 365 Business Central can help you, are listed below.
1. Control your business processes anywhere you go. Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central works with any computer, tablet, and phone with the same interface and access to all your critical data. This allows you to make decisions faster and accelerates your business even further.
2. Use built-in intelligence with Power BI to create powerful dashboards to gain a competitive advantage by optimizing your decision making. With this, you will obtain real-time insights across your organization. The modern design allows users to take advantage of the enhanced dashboards. It is more powerful than Dynamics GP.
3. Within Dynamics 365, your organization is always protected and secured with the Microsoft Cloud. Thus, reducing costs of maintenance with Microsoft managing the infrastructure. Business Central works as a hybrid cloud, so your data will always be uploaded to the cloud from on-premises to replicate and bring the cloud abilities to your business. (The transition to the cloud can be gradual.)
4. Boost your company’s efficiency when integrating with Office 365. With Dynamics 365 Business Central, you will obtain the cloud-based software. This will give you access to apps such as: SharePoint Online, OneDrive, Skype for Business, Yammer, Power BI, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook. These tools will increase collaboration and optimize your workflow and processes.
5. Improve your update scheduling. Both Dynamics GP and Dynamics 365 Business Central have regular major updates every six months. However, for businesses that require a firmer change management – Dynamics 365 Business Central allow sandboxing options that can be used to enable testing and upgrade patching, on top of the regular Microsoft ones.
