Dynamics 365 Business Central

Dynamics 365 Business Central

Dynamics 365 Business Central brings the full power of Dynamics NAV to the cloud.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is Microsoft’s new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution for medium-sized businesses. It is a cloud-based, all-in-one business management solution which enables customers to upgrade from their entry-level accounting software or legacy ERP system to one single, end-to-end business management solution to manage finance, operations, sales, inventory and customer service.

Modelled closely on Microsoft’s popular ERP solution Dynamics NAV, Business Central boasts features including service management, warehousing and manufacturing. Business Central is a SaaS solution and is therefore hosted exclusively in the cloud on Azure by Microsoft. On a computer, Business Central is accessed via a web client through a browser, on mobile devices, Business Central can be accessed via an application.


The functionality of Dynamics 365 Business Central is divided into two so-called ‘packages’, Essentials and Premium. Users will receive the same standard functionality as with Dynamics NAV (Navision). Both solutions are rich in standard functionality as well as direct integration into Dynamics 365 for Sales, Office 365, Power BI, etc.
