Time to upgrade | 5 Feb 19

Looking for a new finance 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...

Both ERP systems have a strong history and have stood the test of time with Microsoft. Dynamics GP offers a good functionality foundation and is reliable. The more modern, Dynamics 365 Business Central has a strong Microsoft roadmap with continual investment and innovation.

Dynamics 365 Business Central offers an array of ISV solutions, and 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

We work with many organisations who have migrated to Dynamics 365 Business Central from software such as QuickBooks, Sage 50 and Dynamics GP. Specifically, when upgrading from Dynamics GP not only are you getting additional functionality but it's also cost effective as you can trade in your licence against the value of a Business Central license.

Dynamics 365 Business Central is cutting-edge financial management software with the ability to seamlessly integrate with the Microsoft stack. This means that 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.

The heavy investment from Microsoft, allows Dynamics 365 Business Central to continually be equipped with the latest innovations and easily updated without the need for dramatic digital transformations ever again as Microsoft push out enhancement, bug fixes and updates.

We also offer Total Managed Services for your Dynamics 365 Business Central system with ServiceNow, a self-service portal with experts at hand and regular reviews. Combined with your dedicated account management and ISO 2700, you know you’re in great hands with an innovative reliable system.

  • Do they speaking the language of the users? Especially if an implementation is across different countries and languages.
