Where to Learn More about Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central
It can be daunting to realize you need to start looking for a new ERP system. With so much out there, where do you even start? As a partner who has spoken to hundreds (maybe thousands?) of companies over the years, we have come to see a pattern when it comes to the process and levels of education that prospects go through when they start looking for a new ERP system to implement.
The first step is to educate yourself on what is out there. A good starting point is an eBook like this one: But Really…What is Dynamics 365? These types of eBooks will help you have a better understanding of what the Microsoft offering includes and help orient you on which solutions might be a better fit for your needs and organization.
Once you know what type of solution you’re looking to implement, it’s time to research what the system actually looks like and what it can do. This introduction video to Dynamics 365 Business Central is a good starting point to have a general overview of the system. From there, a ton of videos are available on YouTube, giving you the chance to review the different modules, functionalities and opportunities that the system offers.
Another piece of the puzzle that is just as important as the selection of the product itself is the implementation partner. Companies don’t always realize the importance of teaming up with a specialist who will be available to guide them. Here are 9 questions that nobody asks their ERP Partner…But should to help you find the right partner.
A new ERP system is an important investment for your organization, so it’s important to do your homework and research before making your final decision. While figuring out where to start can be overwhelming, we hope this helps you getting started with your research. And do not underestimate the change management that goes along with the implementation of a new system—all the more reason to choose the right one so you don’t have to change it again in the short (or even medium!) term.
