You've invested in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and because of the missing need to invest in IT infrastructure you came in under budget. What do you do with the leftover budget? Here's 4 ways to spend that leftover budget:
1. Extensions: Microsoft offers a variety of extensions that have been built by certified ISV providers that can be found on AppSource. Everything from retail point of sale extensions to PCI-validated payment and credit card processing software extensions to an extension that allows you to manage recipes, create ingredient declarations, track allergens and calculate nutrients.
2. Power BI: You can get a free version of Power BI that works for many but if you really want to get analytical and serious about your data the paid version is what you'll need. The paid suite will allow you to refresh your data as often as you'd like, share visual dashboards with colleagues, connect hundreds of data sources, simplify data prep, and drive ad hoc analysis. You'll be producing beautiful reports in not time!
3. Office 365: Office 365 is the perfect compliment to Microsoft Dynamics 365 ERP solutions because of it's ability to integrate seamlessly with the software. Edit quotes in Outlook, use Cortana Intelligence in Outlook, export and customize invoices in Word, import historical data from Excel, etc.
4. Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Sales: Connect your business, make better decisions, and start and grow easily with Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Sales. In a connected world, delivering a great customer experience is more essential than ever to stand apart from your competition, building loyalty, and maintaining your reputation.
