Dynamics 365 Business Central

In less than five years, the Dynamics GP roadmap comes to an end, signaling a crucial turning point for businesses relying on this trusted solution. The urgency to migrate from Dynamics GP to Dynamics 365 Business Central is now more pressing than ever.

By making this transition before Microsoft ends mainstream support for GP, you can avoid potential disruptions to your business operations and take advantage of the innovative features and capabilities offered by Business Central. 

So, what sets Dynamics 365 Business Central apart? Let’s delve into some noteworthy distinctions between Dynamics GP and Dynamics 365 Business Central, focusing on the user interface and the features that users are raving about. 

Account Structure 

One significant difference lies in the chart of account structure. While Dynamics GP utilizes a fixed account string with main accounts and segments, Business Central introduces a dynamic account string that incorporates dimensions. With Business Central, you gain the flexibility to add up to eight dimensions to your chart of accounts, enabling more robust data analysis and reporting without the need to set up all accounts in advance. 


Another compelling feature is the ability to read and edit information using Excel within Business Central. This functionality streamlines data management, allowing users to export data to Excel, make changes or additions, and seamlessly publish them back into the system. It’s an efficient way to handle vendor lists, update records, or even add new data without extensive manual entry. 


Personalization is another area where Business Central shines. Each user has the freedom to tailor the screens to their specific needs. With just a few clicks, users can move fields around, hide unnecessary ones, or even add new fields to the screen. This level of customization enhances user experience and boosts productivity, as users can easily access the information they require, arranged according to their preferences. 


Dynamics 365 Business Central boasts an impressive universal search function. With the click of a button, users can perform a search for specific criteria, be it chart of accounts, reports, documentation, or even Microsoft app Source results. This feature saves time by eliminating the need to navigate through menus and provides quick access to relevant information from any screen.
