We all want to increase our revenue. Taking a critical look at your tech stack, especially if you are on a legacy system, is a great first step. Microsoft 365 Business Central, a cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution integrates with the Microsoft 365 suite of applications which makes the transition easier on you and your whole organization.

Microsoft 365 Business Central is positioned to help small and medium-sized businesses streamline their processes, improve their productivity, and grow their profits. Let’s explore how.

Increase Financial Visibility

Get a complete view of your financial performance. From cash flow and budgeting to fixed assets and project costing, you can easily track your income and expenses, monitor your cash flow, and forecast your future needs. You can also use the late payment–prediction extension to identify overdue invoices and collect them.

Business Central gives you the tools to ensure accuracy and compliance by managing your general ledger, accounts payable, accounts receivable, bank reconciliation, and more in one central system. You can also use Business Central to create and analyze your financial statements, budgets, and forecasts. It supports multiple reporting standards, such as GAAP and IFRS, and provides audit trails, and security features.

Make Data-Driven Decisions

Upgrade from gut-feel and seat-of-the-pants decision-making to relying on real-time data and insights into your business performance. Even though Business Central is aimed at the small to mid-market, it does NOT lack robust tracking and reporting features that enable you to make informed and strategic decisions. You can use Power BI (Business Intelligence) to create interactive dashboards and reports that show key metrics and trends. You can also use artificial intelligence (AI) to get predictive insights and recommendations that help you optimize your processes and outcomes.
