What is Dynamics 365 Business Central? 

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is a comprehensive business management solution.

Ready for the benefits of an integrated ERP system? 

Integration with Microsoft 365 & Power Platform 

Business Central (BC) is a system build by Microsoft – this makes for several benefits! At its core Microsoft stands for unified intelligent adaptable and modern platform that is well known for its expertise and it has been around for many years and is well known to all its users. And now with Business Central, it is possible to work very closely with several applications. 

With BC you can count on integrations with your most-used applications like Microsoft 365 and Teams. For example, the integration with Outlook, you can easily create and send an offer directly from Outlook! No need for switching apps – so you save a lot of time. 

The integration with the Power Platform lifts your business to a higher level, thanks to a seamless connection between all your intelligent data tools Power BI and Power Apps. You can directly view all of your content in BC – which results in a complete image of your business in real-time.  

Moreover, co-pilot - the intelligent assistant in the Microsoft Dynamics 365 applications - allows you to work a lot more efficiently and productively. It provides real-time insights, uses artificial intelligence (AI) to perform tasks automatically and offers personalised recommendations. By using co-pilot, you can simplify daily tasks, reduce errors and make decisions faster, giving you a competitive advantage and improving business performance.

When your email, calendar, and files seamlessly come together with your data, reports, and business processes, you get an integrated experience that no other stand-alone ERP solution can match. 

Get your updates thanks to the Cloud environment

Software as a Service (SaaS) is the new standard and this has a lot of benefits. One such benefit is Microsoft's update policy! You have immediate access to new functionalities and updates without having to pay an additional fee.  

And you do not have to worry about the infrastructure, server capability or acquisition and installation of hardware - since this will be provided by the software provider.

Cost optimization 

Since SaaS applications such as Business Central have an easier infrastructure and lower maintenance costs, you can streamline your IT costs. Microsoft also built BC to meet your needs. It truly is a comprehensive, customizable platform for improving your productivity. And you can easily add specific applications for your industry. 

Thanks to the license model, based on your total amount of users, you do not have a large upfront investment. And because of its flexibility, you can always add licenses – this way your IT system grows with your business. 

Furthermore, you will not lose much time thanks to the fast implementation, with the support of NORRIQ! 


Data protection should be extremely high on your list when choosing an IT system!  

As a cloud solution, you of course benefit from in-built features that ensure your data is backed up and securely stored.  

BC provides a security system that allows administrators to manage user access to the objects and data in the database. Because the BC database is on SQL Server or Azure SQL Database, the BC security system and the Azure SQL Database security system work together to help ensure that only authorized users can gain access to the database. 

Better support  

Since add-ons and customization are no longer developed within the standard product, it is a lot easier to provide your support. With the updates in the cloud systems, it is not needed to extensively analyze the modifications in the new release. 

And of course, with NORRIQ, you can count on our Care heroes! They are here to save the day when you do experience a problem or if you have questions. 

With every new release of BC, our consultants will evaluate your business critical apps and update them or inform you if nescessary -  so you are always up to speed with the latest developments.
