Looking for a new finance system?

Looking to upgrade your system?

Microsoft Dynamics GP and Microsoft 365 Business Central are the key ERP systems of choice but what are the key differences? Functionality, customisation, upgrades, infrastructure requirements and licensing to name a few.

Dynamics 365 Business Central, and Dynamics GP

Both ERP systems have a strong history and have stood the test of time with Microsoft. GP offers a good functionality foundation and is reliable. Business Central has a strong Microsoft road map with continual investment and innovation.

BC offers an array of ISV solutions, there is an exact solution to meet your organisations needs. Monthly subscription, deployment in the Microsoft Cloud, using the Microsoft Azure platform. There are multiple benefits of hosting in the Cloud, the Microsoft security offering being just one.

Dynamics 365 Business Central

TES work with many organisations to migrate to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business central from software such as QuickBooks, Sage 50, and Dynamics GP. Specifically, with GP not only are you getting additional functionality but also it is cost effective as you can trade your licence in against the value of a Business Central license.

Cutting-edge financial management software with the ability to seamlessly integrate with the Microsoft stack your employees can hit the ground running with the familiar applications all in one place. Reducing the need for duplicated spreadsheets, saving time and the potential for human error.

Customising in ‘My Settings’ in Business Central

You can find my settings in the settings menu on the App Bar on the top of Business Central client.

snip 1

If you click here, then you get access to my settings.  And here you can find some very important features which allow you to customise your business central experience. For example, you can select which the Role Centre to use, select the company you’re working in and can verify the work date that you’re working in.

As Business Central is a multi-language solution you can also specify which language. So that people working in different languages can all work in the same system.  Further to this there are some regional settings such as language and time zone.

And finally, you can also change your notifications in the system

Here is a screenshot of what ‘My Settings’ looks like in Business Central:

snip 2

 

To change the Role Centre in my settings, clicking the drop-down button next to this field a list of which Role Centres are available for you.

 

 

snip 3

As soon as you confirm this with clicking OK you will see that the Role Centre will change without having to close the application, this is instant, once the new role centre has loaded the content displayed is totally different to previously. This feature allows you to tailor the user experience for different Job roles within the business.

Below is an example of the range of different role centres available is business central.

If you have limited users today, then they will be traded on a 1-for-1 basis for the new Team Member user and Device licences will also be done on a 1-for-1. Your version of NAV and the functionality you have purchased will dictate what your trade-in is worth. You should check now to see what you are entitled to.

Option 1 – You can transition fully to a Subscription-based model and receive a 40% discount of the monthly Subscription price. Customers that chose this route will no longer be paying BREP.

Option 2 – You can transition to a Subscription-based model but choose to carry on paying your BREP. For customers taking this route they will be given an 80% discount on the monthly Subscription price.

Regardless of which option you choose you will have the opportunity to use the Cloud Add-On for an additional monthly fee per user. This means you can have an on-premise or private cloud solution that syncs key data to the Microsoft cloud giving you the opportunity to take advantage of the Intelligent Edge, a set of cloud based connected systems and devices that gather and analyse your data giving users get real-time insights and experiences.

These discounts will be in place until 30th June 2021.
