How Small and Midsize Businesses Can Benefit from Business Central

Posted on: January 11, 2022 | By: Rosie Gill | Microsoft Dynamics Business Central

In the competitive, modern marketplace, it is imperative that small to midsize businesses are utilizing good software in their daily operations so that these companies can remain on par with larger corporations in their respective industries. Microsoft’s premier midmarket ERP Business Central is an essential tool for SMBs because of its savvy features and functionalities and, more importantly, its fair price tag.

Business Central has many distinct advantages for SMBs, and in today’s blog post we are going to examine a few of them.

A Personalized Workspace for Each User

Business Central is a unique ERP because of its allowance for users to personalize their workspace. Because each user in your business has a different job role and daily tasks, they have the ability to add, move, or delete fields and columns in the system. Moreover, they can highlight certain modules and charts while hiding others, personalize their dashboard displays, and create default filters specific to their needs. 

This ability for personalization allows users to maximize their efficiency in the ERP and be able to navigate Business Central smoothly because a lot of the interface is subject to preference. SMBs can harness the power of Business Central by implementing it and giving users the power to make this digital workspace unique to their needs so that they can spend less time trying to navigate the software and more time doing their necessary tasks.

An Integration with Excel

Excel is a staple application for any company because of its robust ability to analyze data, and Microsoft understands this. Moreover, Business Central includes an already set up integration with Excel, allowing users to export, view, edit, and import data to and from Excel. This allows for increased productivity of users and makes the process of editing data a lot easier because you no longer have to format any changes in the exported/imported data because its synced between the two applications.

The Tasks List

Users can remain up to date on any necessary tasks they’ve been assigned through the tasks list feature. This list automatically appears on the dashboard for users and consists of tasks they have created for themselves as well as any tasks assigned to them by an administrator. This is a great feature because it keeps employees aware of any pertinent work needed to be down as well as allows administrators to monitor employee productivity and ensure they are on track.

Next Steps

While Business Central is a popular solution for SMBs because of the aforementioned features, it also has a ton of other capabilities. If you want to discover more about the power of Business Central, contact an expert consultant at Logan Consulting today!
