Why is Dynamics 365 Business Central right for us?

THE PERFECT SOLUTION FOR SME:

1Reason: Network your company

With Dynamics 365 Business Central, you no longer store data in separate systems that don’t work together. Today, everything is integrated. Finance, projects, production or inventory management and sales are all brought together. You manage the entire supply chain in one solution. Our project managers usually know their customers for a long time and detect new potential early on.

2Reason: Make better decisions

Any time you have a 360-degree view of the company. This no longer requires time-consuming Excel analyses. With Dynamics 365 Business Central, you see database updates in real time. Whether you use a desktop, tablet or smartphone, the functionality is the same and you can access your data securely. This applies to Windows, iOS and Android. Dynamics 365 Business Central lets you see trends and identify problems before they happen.

3Reason: Close to the standard solution and yet flexible

Although you receive a standard solution, it can be individually adapted to your requirements. Nevertheless, you remain updatable. We pay attention to this, because it is important to us.

In the comfortable drag-and-drop interface in Dynamics 365 Business Central, you can easily rearrange fields and elements by yourself. In addition, industry-specific challenges are easily solved via apps.

All in one:

These extras are included in Dynamics 365 Business Central.

  • Change log

    It is possible to enable change logs in Dynamics 365 Business Central so that you can see the history of activities (changes to data in tables).

    The change log records all changes made to tables and is structured chronologically.

  • Document exchange

    With Dynamics 365 Business Central, you can manage the exchange of business documents, bank files (such as import and export), currency exchange rates, and all other files with your business partners.

  • Extended texts

    Extended texts in Dynamics 365 Business Central can be used to create item descriptions and add some additional information to sales order lines.

  • Intrastat reporting

    Companies within the EU are obliged to provide information about their trading activities with other EU countries. This means that goods movements must be reported to the country’s statistical authorities and tax authorities every month.

    This process is called “Intrastat reporting”. In Dynamics 365 Business Central, you can fill out regular Intrastat reports on the Intrastat journal.

  • Notifications

    In Dynamics 365 Business Central you can view notifications. For each notification, you can then decide whether you want to ignore the notification or display more information about it.

    If you go into more detail, you can also take appropriate actions immediately (e.g. reorder if the warehouse stock is missing).

  • Online maps

    Online map services are used for example for the following scenarios:

    • determination of geographical positions
    • planning of trips
    • procurement of addresses
    • search for landmarks and companies

    Online mapping is the process of using maps delivered by geographic information systems (GIS) on the World Wide Web. There are various databases for which online mapping functions are provided, such as Bing, Google or Yahoo. Bing Maps is Microsoft’s atlas web application.

  • PayPal

    With the help of the PayPal Payment Service, you provide your debtors with even more payment options in addition to the SEPA Direct Debit Mandate or payment by credit card.

    When you send a sales invoice to your debtor by e-mail, it contains a PayPal link in the e-mail text. When the customer clicks on the link, the usual service page of the PayPal account appears with the payment details for the purchase. This means that the customer can pay the invoice like any other PayPal payment.

  • Unlimited companies

    In Dynamics 365 Business Central you are unlimited in the number of companies.

  • User management

    In Dynamics 365 Business Central, administrators can centrally create users and set appropriate permissions and user groups.

  • User tasks

    In Dynamics 365 Business Central, you can create for yourself or for other people tasks. This can be done on the “User Tasks” page. This page displays all tasks and allows you to create and assign tasks. For each task, you can specify a start date and due date, and a link to the page associated with the task.

  • Verification of a VAT identification number

    It is important that you work with the correct VAT ID numbers of customers and vendors. For this purpose the European Commission provides the VAT Number Verification Service on its website, which is public and freely accessible.

    Dynamics 365 Business Central can save this step. The service is called EU VAT number verification service. It is available on the Service Connections page, and you can start using it immediately. The service is free and registration is not required.

    To activate the EU VAT ID verification service, open the entry on the Service Connection page.

  • Workflows

    In Dynamics 365 Business Central, you can set up and use workflows to connect business processes of different users. Typical workflows are processes that require approval or authorization.

    Of course, you must first set up workflow and approval users and specify how users will receive notifications about workflow steps. This is followed by the setup of workflows and potentially code customizations.

Tine Göllner

„In the course of optimizing our processes, we have acquired 365 Business Central (Cloud) licenses from anaptis for Dynamics. Due to the immediate provision and the extensive consultation, we were able to switch immediately to the operational phase. With the cloud variant, we also do not require any special hardware or even servers. The guarantee of legally compliant data handling is also guaranteed. The operation is very intuitive for our employees in the Microsoft look and feel.“

PRICE MODELS FOR MICROSOFT DYNAMICS 365 BUSINESS CENTRAL:

Prices for the On-Premise option.

Since October 2018, the ERP solution Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is no longer only available for rent in the cloud, but also for purchase as an on-premise version (local solution). As a result, Microsoft Dynamics NAV will no longer be able to versions under this name. The name “Microsoft Dynamics NAV” now completely changes to “Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central”. In other words, instead of “Microsoft Dynamics NAV On-Premise”, the local solution is now renamed to “Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central On-Premise”.

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.
