What is erp anyway?

Our technology interpreter Theo explains.

What is ERP software?
Imagine ERP software like a brain. Here a lot of complex information is stored and processed at high speed. Huge amounts of brain cells work together in one big system. Furthermore, the entire organism is controlled and coordinated from here and all available resources (e.g. blood) are distributed. Some processes even run automatically or subconsciously, so that the brain works at maximum efficiency.

From brain to ERP software:
So software is virtually the brain of a company. All information and data is stored in one place. All departments are networked to ensure smooth cooperation. In addition, resources (e.g. materials, employees) are coordinated and distributed. Some tasks are also automated here to ensure maximum efficiency.

By the way, ERP stands for “Enterprise Resource Planning”. Dynamics 365 Business Central is Microsoft’s ERP software for small and medium-sized companies. Perhaps Dynamics NAV or Navision is still familiar to you in this area? Dynamics 365 Business Central is the successor of Dynamics NAV and Navision. Functionally, it is the same system, which is continuously improved and just got a new name.

The purchase of a Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central license also requires the conclusion of an enhancement plan (EP). The EP has an initial term of 12 months and costs 16% of the list price of the total acquired license annually in advance. Calculation example: 3 x Dynamics 365 Business Central Essentials = 4,500 euros, 16% of which = 720 euros annually in advance for the Enhancement Plan. The EP is extended and calculated with each license extension / new order. The EP can be terminated in writing with a period of 90 days prior to expiry. Upon expiration of termination of the EP, the acquired licenses of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central may continue to be used, but may no longer be updated, extended or altered in any way.
