So your business is, at the very least, considering an investment in Business Central. Perhaps you’re researching and evaluating what is involved with an implementation. You find yourself askingHow long will it take? When can start? Can I do it myself? The truth is that while Business Central is fast to implement—compared to some other products—it’s not always easy. For companies looking to implement Business Central, it’s a good idea to involve an external consulting resource. 

You Want Your Business Central Implementation to Be a Success

Your Business Central implementation might involve: 

  • Data migration, where you transfer data from an old business management software tool to Business Central 
  • Integration, where you integrate data with Business Central and use both systems 
  • Choosing Business Central as your first business management solution 

It makes sense to involve an external Business Central consulting team for all three of these scenarios. Consultants are a great resource for business to rely on because they come with bountiful knowledge, a specialized skill set, and years of experience. 

It’s common for companies to experience issues when migrating or integrating data with Business Central. A seemingly simple implementation with relatively straightforward data sets can soon become a nightmare, especially if your integration team is not prepared for Business Central or has unrealistic expectations for the project.  

It requires arranging an environment, creating customers, producing vendors, and establishing all the transactions that help you execute day-to-day business processes. This configuration and setup all need to happen before you can even consider customizing the platform’s features to meet your specific needs. Then you’ll need to train end users in how to use Business Central. 

With an experienced consultant, you can get a customized system optimized for all your business needs. In addition, the consultant will get users trained quickly and efficiently allowing user adoption to increase and speed up the project completion process.  

You Want to Avoid Data Loss and Other Issues

Making a wrong move might leave you accidentally deleting important data or transferring duplicated data sets to Microsoft’s business management tool. You also want to secure data integrity during the implementation process and ensure high-quality data sets end up in Business Central. 

Working with a consultant can prevent these worst-case scenarios and guarantee a seamless data integration project. The right consultant will help you choose which data to move from your old system to Business Central and guide you through the entire implementation process. 

Another consideration when migrating or integrating data with Business Central is data governance. Depending on your jurisdiction or sector, you might need to adhere to legislation like GDPR, CCPA, and HIPAA when transferring data from one location to another. Non-compliance with these legal frameworks can result in expensive penalties from the government that cost thousands of dollars—leading to unexpected expenses your business might not be able to afford. An external consultant will help you navigate these issues and prevent you from landing in hot water.

You Want to Get More Value from Business Central

You could try implementing it yourself.  If done right, it will streamline your business processes, increase visibility and efficiency, and provide support throughout your organization. With the assistance of experienced Business Central consultants, they can guarantee your implementation is done seamlessly while optimizing and customizing features based on your requirements without the hassle. 

Business Central optimizations and customizations can include: 

  • Changing workspaces by customizing assigned roles. 
  • Installing add-ons and extensions that further your business objectives. For example, you might want to integrate Business Central with PayPal Payments Standard.  
  • Change which UI elements you see in the platform. 
  • Enabling colors on Role Centers to prioritize important roles.
