HCS & Dynamics Business Central
Cloud-based business management solution which automates the core operations of a small to medium sized business.
Dynamics 365 Business Central is a comprehensive cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution designed for small and medium-sized businesses, providing tools for financial management, sales, service, and operations. It offers a user-friendly interface and seamless integration with other Microsoft products, making it a versatile and efficient platform for streamlining business processes and improving overall productivity.
Due to recent growth HCS needed a centralised business management solution to help with the day to day running of the business and to integrate processes, centralise data and enable more accurate reporting across the business. Having been approached by Bam Boom Cloud to partner with them on delivering Dynamics Business Central to Irish businesses we saw an opportunity to implement a solution that meet our own needs and in doing so learn what’s involved in its deployment and see firsthand what benefits it brings.
Dynamics 365 Business Central (Business Central) is a cloud-based business management solution which automates the core operations of a small to medium sized business, covering Financial, Sales, Supply Chain, Project Management, Service Management and Manufacturing for 1 to 300 users. Business Central also integrates with the full Microsoft suite, so you can create invoices directly from Outlook, pull data from Excel, drive automation with Power Apps through Teams, and more. Fully future-proofed with free updates, powered by the Cloud and easily accessible on any device. With an affordable per-user, per-month payment plan and costs starting at only €59 per user it is unbelievable value.
In November 2021 we went live with Business Central in HCS.
The project began 6 months earlier when we engaged with a consultant in the UK for technical training on the solution. This kickstarted the process, enabling us to develop a project plan and identify areas across the business where Business Central could add value. It also enabled us to develop the technical support skills needed to roll out the solution as we progressed through the implementation phase.
The following months were spent learning and adapting Business Central to our needs – developing extensions, changing configurations, adding modifications and integrating Business Central to a point where we were happy to go live. This first-hand experience of implementing Business Central across our own business has allowed us to develop a deep understanding and core knowledge which puts us in a much better position to help our customers in the future.
After completing the journey ourselves, we can truly stand in front of our customers in a position of solid knowledge and first-hand experience of how Business Central operates. We are now confident in asking our customers to trust us with their Business Central implementations.
