What is Dynamics 365 Business Central?

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is a business management solution for small and mid-sized organisations that automates and streamlines business processes and helps you manage your business.

Highly adaptable and rich with features, Business Central enables companies to manage their business, including finance, manufacturing, sales, shipping, project management, services, and more. Sysco Software Solutions help companies add the functionality they need, relevant to UK and Irish operations supporting even highly specialised industries.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central brings the full power of Microsoft Dynamics NAV to the cloud. As such, Business Central has at its foundation a set of trusted, proven technologies that have served 160,000 customers and millions of users worldwide.

As a single, end-to-end application, Business Central offers:

  • Business without silos. Unify your business, and boost efficiency with automated tasks and workflows—all integrated within familiar Office tools like Outlook, Word, and Excel.
  • Actionable insights. Achieve greater outcomes and gain a complete view of your business with connected data, business analytics, and guidance delivered by Microsoft’s leading intelligent technologies.
  • Solutions built to evolve. Start quickly, grow at your own pace and adapt in real time with a flexible platform that makes it easy to extend Business Central based on your changing business needs.

Crucially, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central runs on exactly the same code base as a traditional on-premise NAV deployment. This ensures complete consistency between on-premise and cloud versions. What that means for you is that you can transition between NAV on-premise and Business Central with relative ease and access your information on any device.
