A review of Dynamics 365 Business Central

5.0 7 months ago

Comments: Overall very satisfied with the service and want to continue this in future as the interface is very cinvenient to use.

Pros:

The best option available in Dynamic 365 business central is very flexible planning and forecasting. Fast, consistent and very smooth access to the data and assigning it to the team is very easy.

Cons:

At sometimes it losses the connection with server and got stuck but I think in updated versions this will be sorted out.

Pretty easy to navigate, but the screen formatting needs adjusted

4.0 5 years ago

Comments: We use the collections module, sales, purchasing, service cost, job cost, subcontractor module, and more. We use purchase orders and 3 way matching and use dynamics for a wide range of use.

Pros:

You can easily adjust titles to be in red or have distinctive features to stand out, but it is not always easy to do on the financial module and you cannot do it when using features like smartlist.

Cons:

The inability to generate certain reports (you have to set them up yourself) which can be VERY time consuming.

Dynamics 365: Eh, it does what it should.

4.0 2 months ago New

Pros:

I do appreciate the integration options for 365 and the updates it has made from great plains.

Cons:

The interface is outdated and it too difficult to find necessary reports. The report and field names are not common terms so you really need to know the software to find what you are looking for. Relying on the search feature is a bit immature to have to do.

Dynamics 365 business central

2.0 last week New

Comments: I decided that this wasn't the software I needed and ended up getting rid of it and using something else.

Pros:

I liked that you had only one install to get everything instead of having to install ever tool.

Cons:

I think the software was to inconvenient for me.
