Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central/Nav Enhancements
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central
Microsoft, the leader in productivity software has created a cloud or software as a service (SaaS) version of Dynamics NAV – its hugely successful ERP solution. This new SaaS offering is called Dynamics 365 Business Central. Business Central is Dynamics NAV offered as a cloud based solution. With over 140,000 customers and 2.7 million+ users worldwide, Dynamics NAV has the largest install base of any of the Dynamics products. Users like the robust reporting due to the availability of dimensions which is a key feature of NAV, and now Business Central, but not available in other similar ERP systems. Financials, Supply Chain Management, Inventory, Distribution, and Manufacturing round out the key modules that drive such a large customer base.
Business owners like the flexibility of deployment: Dynamics NAV for on-premise and Dynamics Business Central for the Cloud/SaaS. The Microsoft Cloud provides reliability, security, redundancy, compliance and more, which reduces companies’ overhead costs. The Microsoft Cloud allows business owners to focus on what they do best, rather than worrying about servers and licensing. Complete integration to Office 365 and the ability to export and import from Excel (subject to security rules) make Dynamics 365 Business Central easy to use software for end users.

What are the functional differences between LS Nav and LS Central?
