Some successful online businesses are already developing a third or even fourth iteration of their ecommerce platform.
Each step they have taken has transformed aspects of their operations. To keep ahead of the competition, these businesses are always looking for new ways to expand their market and improve their performance.
If you want your business to keep pace with forward-looking competitors like these then integrating your ecommerce platform with your enterprise resource planning (ERP) system is something you should include in your strategy for growth. It will speed up your processes, improve consistency, customer service and efficiency.
One of the undoubted ERP market leaders is Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (BC), so it’s well worth considering.
What is Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central?
BC is part of the Microsoft Dynamics family and is a cloud-based evolution of Microsoft Dynamics NAV (formerly Microsoft Navision). Business Central is not only available in the cloud; it is also available for on-premises or hybrid deployment.
Microsoft acquired Navision in 2002 and launched MS Dynamics 365 in 2016, rebranding its suite of Dynamics ERP and customer relationship management (CRM) products as a new online solution. In September 2017 Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations business and enterprise editions were launched.
In 2018 the launch of BC positioned Microsoft as a leading ERP provider for small and medium-sized businesses, competing with other major players such as Oracle and NetSuite.
