Many small and mid-sized businesses are looking at ways to achieve digital transformation. Whether it’s to streamline operations, enable a more mobile workforce, improve the security of technological platforms or ensure those platforms stay aligned with internal roadmaps, there are many opportunities to equip your organization with the tools it needs to stay ahead in an ever more fast-paced digital world.

An effective starting point to continually adapt your business in an evolving landscape is looking at your ERP system. One solution to consider is Dynamics 365 Business Central (D365 BC), which is designed to aid small and mid-sized organizations in their digital transformation.

D365 BC is a cloud-based ERP system that streamlines the management of financials, operations, sales, supply chains and reporting into a unified solution. It has its own built-in business intelligence alongside seamless integration with automation and analytics solutions such as Power Apps, Power Automate and Power BI. This allows you to customize your ERP to be a powerful business tool tailored specifically for your organization.

Another advantage of using an entirely cloud-based ERP is that it can be used anywhere, anytime and on any device — phone, tablet or computer — ensuring real-time access to information for deciphering trends and preventing possible challenges. With data on the platform shared across all users instantly, you will have a single source of truth. So, you aren’t working with outdated information.

While expanded access is great, you may be concerned (and, rightfully so) about increased risks related to data and cybersecurity. With a system like D365 BC, you can breathe easier because it’s built on a secure IT foundation with built-in identity and access controls, threat protection and security management, all backed by the power of Microsoft.

In addition, the solution is reliable, with localization in 43 countries and 28 languages. You can create tax and compliance reports in all the supported countries without needing to worry about overlooking foreign regulations. So in a use case like international expansion, you know that you have a system with the capabilities to scale alongside you and not add unnecessary burdens.

For Dynamics GP users, migrating to D365 BC is facilitated by an available data migration tool that allows you to transition to the cloud smoothly. Dynamics GP users shouldn’t feel rushed, however, as Microsoft continues to support GP. And many Dynamics partners will continue to bolster businesses’ use of the GP solution.

But if you’re looking for digital transformation, D365 BC is a solution you should consider. It can help you achieve end-to-end business views; track sales, projects and services tasks; and optimize your operational and data management.
