Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central: the next generation finance system for the NfP sector
What is Business Central?
Microsoft Business Central (formally Dynamics NAV) is the next generation 100% cloud-based solution from Microsoft – tailor-made for the NfP sector. It’s an all-in-one financial management solution that covers many aspects of your organisation from the general ledger to entering timesheet data and analysing project activities.
Microsoft have brought together a selection of technologies, like Office, Outlook, Power BI and merged them into a seamless game changing business management solution for the third sector.
Now that Business Central is infused into Outlook you can see transactions, create a quote and much more all within Outlook, leaving no need to log into another system. This is a great collaboration feature that will save time each day.
Another great feature is that Business Central is connected in to some Azure services such as Azure Analytics, which looks at what has been sold historically and gives you an inventory forecast.
There are several add-ons, but one of the most impressive is Power BI.
Business Central seamlessly integrates with Power BI, making the ability to analyse and plan using up to date information an easy process. Power BI is free of charge when you are using it to analyse data within Business Central, however when you use it to analyse date outside of the solution you will have to purchase a licence. Having this functionally is a great starting point for you to start using your data to make an informed decision.
Now, let’s look how we connect this add-on …
