Ready to take your business to the next level?

Running a business means continually facing challenges to keep the trains running on time as well as boosting the bottom line. Business owners and their admin staff often spend more time than they’d like on these tasks, which is why Microsoft have come up with a solution that streamlines everything and makes the working day for you and your staff more productive and profitable.

Launched in New Zealand on July 9, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is a cloud-based ERP that integrates with other cloud services – such as Office 365 – to help businesses streamline tasks and processes and reduce complexity. The whole idea is to help you and your staff better manage areas of sales, finance, operations and customer service – in other words, the backbone of your business.

Not only that, but it also serves as an upgrade from entry level accounting and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, and integrates with PowerApps, Microsoft Flow and Power BI.

"What we like about this new product is that it brings Microsoft’s real strengths to bear, which is giving a business a complete platform, from the front office productivity-type tools right through to back office data crunching and analysis,’’ says Tim Ryley, Endeavour’s Chief Executive.

‘’It also gives firms access to a cloud-solution that, while based on a highly proven ERP solution, is constantly being updated and improved.’’

“New Zealand firms are actively looking at expanding their business functionality to cater for the growing demands of their customers,” says Francois van Splunder, business applications marketing lead at Microsoft New Zealand. “They recognise the value that business software can have in terms of making them more efficient and responsive to customer needs."

That's what Microsoft have kept front-of-mind when developing Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. It puts flexibility at the core of your business, enabling you to start quickly, grow at your own pace and adapt in real time.

So what you need to ask yourself is:

  • Is your business growing beyond its systems?
  • Is that great little online accounting system now hampering your complete picture across finance, operations and sales?
  • Are you struggling with a legacy ERP system?

If you’ve answered “yes” to any or all of those questions, then now’s a good time to re-evaluate your current system and consider whether an upgrade is a worthwhile investment. In a nutshell, there are 5 key ways that Dynamics 365 Business Central can make a difference to your business:

  1. Fast and accurate financial information
  2. Ways to squeeze waste out of your supply chain
  3. Lower the cost of acquiring and serving customers
  4. Improved project management
  5. Streamline operations with better information

We’ll scope, implement and manage the new solution in your business. For organisations already using the Microsoft Dynamics NAV ERP solution, we can help you build a transition plan and support you through the upgrade process.
