The Benefits of Business Central Integrations: The Possibilities Are Endless!

As your company’s Enterprise Resource Management (ERP) system, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is your command and control for nearly all your financial activities, including invoices, payables, consolidations, and more. In addition, Business Central includes strong operations, inventory, supply chain, and warehouse management functions.

One of the significant strengths of D365 Business Central is its ability to easily integrate and exchange information with third-party business applications, providing greater insight into your company’s operations.

Why is integration important?

Integrating Business Central with your other business applications, such as Warehouse Management, Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Project Management, Human Resources, Business Intelligence, and other applications, has many benefits, such as:

Up-to-date information across the enterprise – Sharing information with your business applications means Business Central gives you instant access to current information about your customers, inventory, and supply chain, helping you streamline your supply chain processes, maintain optimal inventory levels, give sales and support complete visibility of customer orders and interactions, and turn quotes into a sales order and automatically create the invoice.

Supercharge your financials – Get an on-demand picture of your financial situation anytime, helping you provide accurate financial reporting, forecasting, and budgeting.

Access to information – Share information with the user roles that need it for their jobs, eliminating data silos so everyone has access to the same information.

Reduce errors and increase productivity – Automate error-prone routine and manual tasks, allowing your staff to focus on more important work.

Enhances the customer experience – Help your sales and support teams provide personalized customer interactions by integrating customer data, inventory levels, sales order information, and previous sales and support interactions in conversations with prospects and existing customers.

Maintain accurate inventory – Synchronize inventory data with Business Central for accurate, real-time inventory counts. Use this information to streamline the reorder process, avoid stock-outs and overstocking, and improve demand forecasts.

Visibility into your supply chain – Integration with your supply chain management system will help you find the bottlenecks in your supply chain, track raw materials through manufacturing and distribution, and help you optimize your supply chain efficiency. 

Streamline project management – Gain visibility of project milestones, costs, and deliverables. Provide a platform for team members to share and collaborate.

Seamless eCommerce processing – Bring order information from marketplaces and eCommerce sites directly into your financials, save customer information in CRM, automatically update inventory, and pick, pack, and ship the order.

Accurate business intelligence and reporting – Import and analyze data from multiple sources. Create visual reports and dashboards and provide leadership with valuable AI-driven business analysis for strategic planning.

Business Central and the Microsoft Technology Stack

Business Central also comes with native integration with the Microsoft Technology Stack, meaning it can communicate with Microsoft 365, the Microsoft Power Platform, and Azure products and services. With nearly 5,000 add-on products from third-party vendors, this interoperability gives unparalleled automation, collaboration, customizability, and analysis capabilities.

Build your own Business Central integrations

In addition to its native integrations with many popular business applications, users can build integrations using Business Central REST (Representational State Transfer) APIs. This capability to create custom integrations lets you access data from legacy systems, augment the capabilities of existing integrations, and establish integrations with newer applications.

The possibilities are endless

Business Central offers virtually unlimited connectivity and integration to a wide range of business applications. From compliance to productivity, the ability to combine the data and functions from these applications into Business Central for further processing and analysis offers more value and insight than having each component work in isolation.
