Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is an end to end business management solution. It offers all business processes from finance to purchasing, inventory to manufacturing, sales, service and much more.
Business Central is pretty much an all new NAV. It’s the new kid on the block. While functionality remains similar, it has some visual differences. NAV will no longer be offering new releases.
While Microsoft may not provide support, D365experts do. We’re Microsoft Business Management Solutions specialists and we provide three different types of support packages as well as the ability to buy extra “blocks” of support when your bundle or package expires.
All of our support has a four hour response time however, on average, all support calls are actioned and dealt with in as little as 30 minutes.
Business Central works for all industries, including retailers, financial, manufacturers and distributors. With a variety of add-ons, there’s something out there for every industry’s needs.
You may hear the term “extensions” used a lot. This refers to small pieces of functionality that augment the main functionality, allowing you to change the way your solution works.
With the help of Extensions, you can change your solution to suit your needs and those of your business.
Yes you can, through Microsoft’s AppSource where you can try or buy the add-ons you’re looking at, all of which work seamlessly with Business Central.

Yes you can. You can have full users and team members. One of the biggest changes from NAV to Business Central is that there aren’t concurrent user licenses anymore, simply ‘named’. This means there are either full members or team members. Full user members are those who require use of the feature rich business applications fictionality. Team members however, are those who aren’t tied to any one function, rather they require basic Dynamics 365 functionality.
Here at D365experts, we can set the system up for you.
Implementation costs will vary depending on what you require, whether it’s assisted or full. We’ll work with you however, to determine a final cost and timescale before we begin.
In short, yes. Decreased users will be at a maximum of the user count or 5 max in any one year. However, in order to decrease licenses, we’ll need a notice period of 30 days.
It can be deployed however you want it to. From cloud to on-premise or even on your own servers or the private D365experts cloud service – the choice is yours.
