    Pros

    It is a very ease to use software similar to just like using Excel Spreadsheet. As per my opinion it is a very effective product available today for all our Enterprise Building Solution. All the functions in Business Central are very Great and can be very fruitful for the Business if adapted effectively and efficiently.

    The procurement process has been made easier.
    Our asset management is now on point.
    The human resource management especially the payroll management bit is awesome.

    Pros

    Dynamics 365 BC has a variety of tools including the procurement module, human resource module, and the finance module.
    It has a interface that is user friendly and easy to use.
    It's workflows are outstanding and carrying out an activity from one end to another is made easy. With the workflows, at least a track can be made on the movement of activities carried out in the system.
    The ability to generate reports is a plus which is also easy.
    Another good feature is that it can be customized to accommodate the user needs.
    It is also compatible with Microsoft Excel such that one can export and import data between the two.

    Cons

    At first, you will need some practice on how to manage it to avoid messing up with your crucial data.

    Another issue is that running many processes at once can slow it down and this will force you to wait longer.

    DONT PUT YOUR TEAM THROUGH THIS

    Reviewed on 15/11/2019

    Pros

    As some on who has to use this software daily in a client facing role this is the worst product in the world. If you are the product procurement officers and looking for a CRM, you will be hated for years, long after you are gone if you make your co workers use this product. Even making a client card is like puling teeth, the search query for products is ridiculously hard to use.

    Cons

    This software makes me want to quit my job because it is so difficult to do any part of the sales process on it. Searching products, making quotes, checking my orders. Also there is no notifications so you dont know when your case has moved along unless you go and physically check it which is also not easy. Once again, if you buy this product you a damning your co workers to years of mental anguish and some might genuinely start hating their job so much that they quit.

    YOU WERE WARNED.

    My experience has been very good, I think that you must consider this option and better if you're on a Microsoft environment.

    Pros

    Not adding common thing as a default feature, things that you must develop to keep the things running.

    My experience was horrible as partners can deploy the Software but theask you enormous amounts over R200k to set it up. I also found that there is no support in South Africa for the software, you cannot phone quickly and found out how a thing is working. You have to go through the trouble to watch videos or read on Microsoft Learn. I could also not found one accountant who could work in this software for over two years. This was my biggest headache as well as the support on this software.

    Pros

    Business Central is a great software with a lot of functionalities. It is the best account ing software in the market..

    Cons

    Business Central support is South Africa does not exist. The partners are really useless and see Business Central as a way to make a quick buck. They rip you off and want to charge over R200k. I worked through business central and to set it up should not cost you more than 10k. Another setback is that you don't get accountants in South Africa that know how the software is working. I tried to find accountants for months, and not even one Microsoft partner could refer me to one accountant who knows the software. In South Africa as soon as you put the name Microsoft to a product the Microsoft partners want to Ripp you off? Microsoft business Central licencing is also very expensive and is around R1200 per user. Sage one accounting is very cheap against Business Central and they have quality support. I cannot see a feature for Business Central in South Africa as it is too expensive and basically you don't have any support for it in South Africa.
