Cloud-Based Operations: What Can Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Connectivity Do For Your Business? 

Running a business, whether new or established, can be overwhelming. Between managing your inventory, tracking orders, and responding to customers, keeping your business operations running smoothly when done manually can be a significant challenge. 

Here’s a look at how Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, an innovative cloud-based management solution, works and how it can help your business run effortlessly. 

Introduction to Cloud-Based Operations 

Cloud-based operations is an IT framework that integrates the unique processes of a business into one single solution that can be employed over the Internet. In much simpler terms, cloud-based operations create a technical solution to the repetitive, daily tasks associated with running a business so that they are automated, seamlessly integrating with each other. 

Previously, in the absence of software that could automate their repetitive tasks, business owners were forced to run their operations manually, having multiple physical ledgers to track orders, manage customer data, keep tabs on inventory, record sales, and a bevy of other business processes. Not to mention that it was difficult and time-consuming to retrain new staff in the unique processes of the business, time and energy were often burned on tasks that produced very little output. That is, until the advent of cloud-based operations.  

With cloud-based operation software, all your business processes are unified into a single solution, with all your data being stored in cloud servers. Cloud-based operations help you save time, energy, and money you would have ordinarily expended being preoccupied over minor details and frees you up for more important work. 

What is Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central? 

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is a smart enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that helps small and medium-sized businesses digitally manage their daily activities. Originally known as Microsoft NAV, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central was launched in October 2018.¹ 

In one single software solution, you can manage sales, accounting, finance, and even customer service. Dynamics 365 integrates all of this in addition to regular Office suite software, which saves you from constantly having to hop from one software to the other, saving time and improving efficiency. It stores all your data on one single platform, reducing the incidence of missing or incomplete records, and provides you with insights in addition, so you can easily analyze your business’ data and gain a full, bird’s eye view of your business’s health. 

Dynamics 365 Business Central is highly flexible and fully scalable and can easily be modified to suit your business needs at any given point without any downtime. It is a sophisticated ERP solution, sporting unique features such as the “tell me” feature, which allows users to search for specific pages of data, and the “filter” feature, which allows you to apply custom information filters when navigating across the software, helping save time when seeking out specific pieces of data. 

In case standard functionality does not quite fit your business needs, Dynamics 365 is fully customizable and can be updated seamlessly should your business needs change. It boasts three different deployment methods: hosted on your premises, deployed to the cloud, or, if you prefer, hosted both on-site and on the cloud. 

As a one-stop shop for all your business operations, this cloud-based management solution is immensely instrumental in maximizing productivity and efficiency in your business.

Benefits of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central 

There are several advantages to choosing Dynamics 365 as your desired enterprise resource planning solution. Here are a few ways in which your business could benefit from Dynamics 365. 

1. Data Security 

Dynamics 365 Business Central stores all your business information on one platform. This makes accessing data for referencing and report writing easier and faster and reduces the risk of data manipulation for fraudulent activities. Additionally, the cloud-based management solution uses advanced technology and implements thorough safety measures such as encryption and authentication to ensure your data remains uncompromised and impervious to external attacks. 

2. Improved Customer Experience 

In addition to being used to manage daily administrative tasks, Dynamics 365 also doubles as a customer relationship management (CRM) software. This means that you can manage your business finances, track your orders, and keep communications with your customers. It allows you to address customer concerns and complaints, manage service inquiries, and altogether provide a smoother, better customer experience. 

3. Flexibility and Scalability 

Dynamics 365 utilizes cloud technology, which means that your business operations can be run from anywhere in the world and accessed by simple personal devices like your iPad. This opens your business to global opportunities and allows you to recruit the best talent to build your product or service, regardless of their location.
