You know you need Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central as your ERP software but you are still unsure whether or not you'll need Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Sales as your CRM software. The good news about this unsurety is that it causes you to ask question and questions are a good thing. They are particularly a good thing with this topic because most people don't know that Business Central has an internal CRM let alone it's capabilities.
Dynamics 365 Business Central CRM vs Dynamics 365 for Sales
Do not let some eager Microsoft Partner sell you on the idea that for CRM you'll need and can only use Dynamics 365 for Sales. Business Central may be a viable option. However that being said, yes, Business Central has CRM capabilities but no they are not even close to as robust as Dynamics 365 for Sales is. You're going to have to do your due diligence and have questions prepared for the Microsoft Partner you're working with.
