How to Buy Business Central
There are two parts to implementing business software packages:
1. Purchasing the software, ie buying licenses for you to use it.
2. Getting set up and running.
Microsoft is partner-led, which means that Dynamics 365 Business Central is available only through approved partners such as Dynamics Consultants. We can help you through the process of implementing the software, from purchasing the correct licenses for your business needs, to providing the best implementation for your budget and requirements.

Many businesses start on small, low-featured finance packages due to the low cost and ease of use. However, as the business grows you will start to suffer from:
- Limited or no functionality for managing areas of your business
- Lack of intuitive reporting
- No integration between departments
If you have started using a basic finance package and need something more to run your business, then Dynamics 365 Business Central could be the solution for you.
- Familiar Microsoft look and feel for ease of learning and use
- Implement just the areas that you need to use
- Security and Permissions based on job roles
If you use an external accountant, don't worry - Business Central comes complete with a free accountant licence, giving them access to just the areas of the system that they need to manager your finances.
Manually inputting data into spreadsheets is both timely and open to a lot of risks. Reporting is also very limited and often the data is disparate between work books. Building new areas of the business can be complex and requires huge amount of management time to create the processes.
Business Central comes with in-built functionality for every area of business, all integrated with a centralised chart of accounts. This means that you only enter the data once and can spend time focused on strategy based on meaningful insights from the in-built reporting and integrated Power BI.
Many entrepreneurs start up a business with the purpose of growing quickly. Going from a startup to a £10m+ turnover business in three years sounds ideal, however it can be a managerial nightmare. With staff and infrastructure changes taking months to implement, it is important to plan for seamless growth.
With Business Central, you can implement just the functionality that you require, then implement the other areas of the system as the need arises. In this way you can grow your business naturally as the market requires.
Furthermore, the automation provided by an integrated and intelligent system means that you are able to run on a reduced staff overhead.
