Can I Implement Dynamics 365 Business Central Myself?

4 min read

 

Built and optimized for SMBs, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central helps you run your entire business with a single cloud-based accounting solution. It’s designed to make decision-making smarter and accelerate growth, replacing outdated legacy systems that no longer support financial, sales, service, and operations the way they need to.

While some companies choose to bring in an experienced team to implement their new system, others prefer to take a hands-on approach and implement it themselves. In this post, we’ll explore what it takes to get Dynamics 365 up and running on your own and how we can help you do it.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Implementation Support

As a Dynamics 365 Partner, 360 Visibility can help you set up Dynamics 365 quickly with our one-week implementation program. This program is designed for organizations who need little implementation assistance, typically because they have experienced staff.

Dynamics 365 indeed has easy-to-follow set-up and data migration tools, but it isn’t exactly plug and play. As a result, many companies deciding to implement the system themselves find themselves overwhelmed by what it takes to configure and customize it to their organization’s specific needs. For instance, you might know the outcome you want, but there are often three or four different ways to achieve it, each with its advantages and drawbacks.

If you decide to configure Dynamics 365 yourself, it’s crucial to have a clear view of how you’ll use the application. It can be tempting to implement in a way that satisfies short-term needs, but if you take the long-term into account, you eliminate the risk of inefficiencies, such as data redundancy.

We want to help you get Dynamics 365 up and running quickly and with confidence. Our Business Central Quick Start Agenda includes a two-day course of five online sessions:

  • Day 1’s session covers introductions, goal-setting, connectivity, discovery, start-up, and navigation.
  • Day 2’s session includes guidance on the configuration of financial processes such as chart of accounts, accounts payable, general ledger, accounts receivable, and bank reconciliation.

The key point to keep in mind is that configuring Dynamics 365 is not only knowing how to do it. It’s also being able to think creatively about different approaches to your organization’s unique requirements.

When to Work With a Dynamics 365 Partner

Along with providing Business Central self implementation support, a Dynamics 365 Partner can be your trusted ally in ensuring you get the most out of the platform. They provide:

  • In-depth product knowledge, including customizations that may already exist.
  • Expert guidance and support in optimizing your Dynamics 365 applications.
  • Evaluation of new solutions that best fit your organization’s needs now and moving forward.
  • Input on tailoring existing solutions that add industry-specific functionality.
  • Ongoing support every step of the way.

When you want to ensure a successful do-it-yourself Dynamics 365 set-up, implementation support such as our Business Central Quick Start Agenda is a great way to do it. We believe making the switch to Dynamics 365 doesn’t need to be complicated or painful. Our Business Central implementation support is designed to ensure you get every advantage of the program without any of the stresses implementations sometimes bring.
