I want to show you the late payment prediction functionality in Dynamics 365 Business Central. It’s really easy to set up, as it utilizes artificial intelligence to analyze your data and generate predictive models. In this demonstration, we’ll explore how to set it up and examine the results.

Setting Up Prediction Models

Selecting a Model

In Business Central, you have the option to select the model you want to use. A standard model comes with the system, which is based on data from various small and medium-sized businesses. Alternatively, you can create your own model tailored to your specific system, data, and business needs.

Creating Your Own Model

Analyzing Results

Viewing Predictions

After setting up the prediction model, we can examine the results. One way to do this is by navigating to the Role Center for Business Manager, where you’ll find a message indicating invoices predicted to be overdue. By reviewing these predictions, you can anticipate potential payment delays and take proactive measures.

Understanding Prediction Confidence

The system provides confidence levels to its predictions, indicating the reliability of the forecast. Before continuing, it’s essential to understand the confidence level associated with each prediction, which helps in decision-making processes.

Exploring Different Views

Another way to analyze predictions is to access the Customer Ledger Entry screen, where you can view all entries and sort them based on payment predictions. Additionally, Business Central provides an Analyze function that allows for a more detailed examination of payment predictions.

Leveraging Predictive Analytics

Utilizing Predictive Tools
