Work from anywhere at anytime
Imagine you are a business owner and you have just received an email message from your key customer requesting for fast order delivery. With Dynamics 365 Business Central (former Microsoft Dynamics NAV), you can find the information you need to process the transaction without searching external systems or coordinating with other departments. Without leaving the app, you can get a detailed overview of your inventory. Knowing that the stock quantities on hand are not sufficient for the order, you can take immediate actions. Using the same interface, you send a purchase order to the vendor and a quote to your customer within just a few minutes. Now, you can take up a new task.
Business Central workflows also help you secure processes and work on the go, no matter where you are. Let’s assume you are out of office and you get an email notification. From the email message, you learn that the discount you have set for the sales quote has just reached the maximum value of 10 %. Right from your mobile, you get into your mailbox and quickly review the quote and check the customer’s order history, account status, and credit limit. After short consideration, you decide to approve the discount. The sales quote is automatically updated and the salesperson receives a notification that the quote can be sent to the customer.
With Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft 365 integrated, your employees are empowered to react fast without switching to other apps from their mailboxes. These time savings will enable them to manage priority business goals and focus on building positive customer relationship.
Ensure better customer service
It is crucial to keep your sales team connected in the office and on the go, ensuring them reliable access to data. Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and Office 365 simplifies and automates routine and mundane tasks to keep your sales team focused on sales priorities.
Your sales rep receives an email from a customer requesting a quote for some products. The system recognizes the customer enabling the sales rep to easily view the customer card within Outlook. From his dashboard, he can get all customer’s account related information– including the customer’s existing quotes, ongoing orders, and sales history. When creating the quote, customer and product information are filled in automatically, helping him get it done faster.
While the sales rep is sending the sales quote, a new message appears in his inbox with an enquiry from a potential customer he met at a recent event. The system recognizes that the person’s email address is not in the customer database, and prompts the sales rep to add the customer. Without leaving Outlook, he creates a profile of the new customer in Outlook.
This kind of automation reduces time spent on administrative tasks, allowing your sales team to quickly register a new contact, respond to inquiries and ultimately improve customer interactions.
Fast reporting, accurate business decisions.
The accounting department plays a crucial role in your business. Dynamics 365 offers accountants many features that facilitate their daily work by simplifying reporting, streamlining month-end close, and reducing data entry errors.

Then, you open an MS Excel invoice list in order to enter changes in selected documents. Within a few minutes, you can add new invoices and update the existing ones. With just one click, you can publish the data back to the Dynamics 365 app, where it’s automatically refreshed.
