Business Central Cloud + Microsoft Office or Microsoft 365, which is better?

Updated: Aug 17, 2021

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central has shaken up the Cloud ERP industry like Michael Jordan shook up basketball. With Business Central Cloud you can access your ERP from anywhere, it’s fast, reliable, secure, incorporates cutting edge technology, and integrates with other Microsoft 365 (Office 365) software. What if you don’t have Microsoft 365 but instead are using Microsoft Office 2019, will you still have the same integrated features? Let’s open the Microsoft door and explore.

Will you have the same features available regardless of whether you integrate Microsoft Office 2019 or Microsoft 365 with Business Central Cloud? No, you will not. Integrating two cloud based software systems such as Microsoft 365 and Business Central gives your software the ability to now use Microsoft’s Dataverse to share data between the two applications.

Here are some of the more popular Business Central integration features that will be available with Microsoft 365 and not Microsoft Office 2019.

Email Logging

Make communications more effective between salespeople, customers, and potential customers by tracking email exchanges and turning them into functional opportunities.

Send documents by email through Business Central

Integrate one or multiple email accounts with Business Central to be able to send messages with information from Business Central without having to switch to your email app.

Microsoft Excel Integration

Export your data from Business Central into Microsoft Excel. Analyze and make changes within Excel and then export these changes directly into Business Central from Excel.

Outlook Email Integration

Save time by being able to make changes in Business Central directly from the Outlook Email App.

Work in Business Central while still in Microsoft Teams. Make changes, look up contacts, share pages, and much more.

Bulk Invoicing from Microsoft Bookings

Do bulk invoicing for appointments.
