Setting up Business Central Myself vs. With A Microsoft Service Provider

4 min read

 

Designed for small to mid-sized businesses, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central enables you to run your entire business from one unified solution. If you’re one of the many businesses making the move to Dynamics 365, one of the first decisions you’ll need to make is whether to do the Business Central setup yourself or have a Microsoft Service Provider do it for you.

Options for Business Central Setup

You can certainly install Business Central yourself using the software’s Central Setup feature. You can install individual components or choose predefined options that install the appropriate components for you. However, implementing the system on your own is not without its challenges, and a Microsoft Service Provider can help make the process go more smoothly.

As a Dynamics 365 Partner, 360 Visibility focuses on one goal: helping you implement Business Central so that you get the most out of its many features. For DIYers, we offer a one-week implementation program to help you get up and running quickly. If your business lacks the internal resources to self-implement, we’re here for you, too.

Implement Business Central With a Dynamics 365 Partner

Microsoft designed the Cloud Services Provider program to enable its partners to sell its cloud services to customers. But the services a 365 Partner offers go far beyond the licensing aspect to include personalized services that add value to the cloud experience through expert support and guidance.

Benefits to teaming up with a Dynamics 365 Partner include:

  • Increased productivity. Employees work more efficiently with familiar tools.
  • Optimized performance. Built-in intelligence proactively guides optimal outcomes.
  • 24/7/365 support that minimizes downtime. You get real-time, actionable support from dedicated consultants who ensure you get the best experience from Microsoft services.
  • Expertise you can count on. Microsoft partners are certified and accredited IT experts trained to deliver proven solutions built on Microsoft technologies.
  • Licensing that fits your specific needs. You realize a better return on your investment because you only buy in to services that support your current and future initiatives.

One of the greatest benefits of joining forces with a 365 Partner is that it takes the burden of many IT tasks off your shoulders. They also help you evaluate new solutions, tailor existing solutions, and keep you on track with ongoing support, consultation, and optimization recommendations.

Find Your Perfect Microsoft Dynamics Partner

Not sure if working with a Microsoft Dynamics Partner is the right choice for your Business Central setup?

Millions of organizations use Microsoft technologies for a variety of their business needs. Yet, while most people are familiar with the products, they’re not all qualified to implement or manage them. A Microsoft Dynamics Partner provides a broad range of services, including:

  • Standardizing or advancing your IT infrastructure.
  • Helping you realize more business value from your IT investments.
  • Assisting your business in reaching its fullest potential.

Whether you decide to set up Business Central yourself or work with us as your trusted Microsoft Service Provider, we’re here to make the implementation process as uncomplicated and pleasant as possible. From upgrading out-of-date technology to keeping your data safe with advanced security solutions, we’re always with you each step of the way.
