Look, up at the monitor, it's a CRM, it's a spreadsheet, it's Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central!
Superheroes have been idolized by all types of people for more years than you and I have been on this wonderful planet. They possess such traits as fairness, leadership, a willingness to sacrifice for the greater good, and many others. Normal people can have these qualities too so what sets a Superhero apart from normal people? There's a few things but it's mainly being consistent. Superheroes never relinquish these traits and therefore consistently stay the envy of others.
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is the envy of all other ERP software because of it's ROI, but when you couple that with being consistent and the below shared qualities you see a correlation between Business Central and Superheroes.
1. Work from Anywhere
Just like Iron Man has the ability to take his work on the road Business Central lets you access your information from just about anywhere. You can choose cloud, on-premise, or hybrid environment. Business Central runs where you need it with the same user experience no matter how you deploy it.
Bruce Wayne figured out an efficient way to battle crime and subsequently created Batman, and just like Bruce Wayne, Business Central has figured out an efficient way to optimize operations. Business Central optimizes operations by managing forecasting to fulfillment which uses sales forecasts and expected stock-outs to automatically generate production plans and create purchase orders. Business Central runs your warehousing efficiently by getting a holistic view of inventory for efficient order fulfillment and tracking every item transaction and movement by setting up bins based on warehouse layout and storage unit dimensions. Business Central also help you reach optimal output levels by calculating and optimizing manufacturing capacity and resources to improve production schedules and meet customer demands.
3. Customer Service
Superman has provided years of customer service to the public by thwarting criminals and even saving innocent bystanders from runaway cars and trains. Business Central, like Superman, provides great customer service by delivering value at every touch point, boosting sales productivity, and delivering exceptional service.
4. Make the Correct Decision Quickly
Flash, also known as the Scarlet Speedster possess super speed which not only allows him to run fast but to think fast. Business Central has it's own flash like qualities with the ability to help you make informed decisions by connecting data across accounting, sales, purchasing, inventory, and customer interactions to get an end-to-end view of your business. Chart financial performance in real time with built-in Power BI dashboards.
5. Predict the Future
Only the rarest of Superhero's can see the future so would I be in the wrong if I said that Business Central's forecasting capabilities rival that of a Superhero? Of course not, just like Superheroes I am never wrong (well never wrong more than twice a minute on a good day!).
Why do I think Business Central's forecasting capability is so good? Simple, the software can refine financial forecasts by modeling and analyzing data across multiple dimensions. Even your most powerful Superhero cannot accomplish this feat.
