What Is SMB ERP?
SMB ERP, which stands for “small and midsize business enterprise resource planning,” refers to specialized software designed to fit to the unique needs of SMBs. These systems offer a robust set of tools to help organizations manage and automate various business processes efficiently.
Key characteristics of SMB ERP solutions include:
- Tailored: The systems are tailored to fit the requirements, budget, and scale of growing companies.
- Efficient: The systems can help streamline operations by integrating various departments, reducing data silos, and improving overall efficiency.
- User-Friendly: With a focus on ease of use, employees can quickly adapt to workflows in the system.
- Scalable: These ERP systems are designed to grow alongside the organization.
- Cloud Options: Many SMB ERP solutions offer cloud-based services, enhancing flexibility and scalability while reducing IT infrastructure costs.
When designed and used properly, SMB ERP systems can help organizations streamline business functions, improve productivity, and stay competitive.
Why Dynamics 365 Business Central?
Dynamics 365 Business Central is an inclusive and scalable business management tool designed to empower businesses of all sizes, especially SMBs. It can help connect finance, operations, sales, and service; streamline various business processes; and enable real-time insights.
Further, as Microsoft’s lifecycles for the various versions of Dynamics GP come to an end, planning for the future will be pivotal.
Beyond system changes, finding and retaining finance and accounting talent is becoming a pervasive challenge for organizations across all industries. In a recent Forrester Consulting Total Economic Impact™ study commissioned by Microsoft, it’s reported that businesses using Business Central attained a 10% reduction in finance and operations hiring needs* while keeping growth on track.
As business evolves, your business management and ERP tools should scale to meet your unique requirements. Business Central includes features and capabilities designed to facilitate growth. From faster financial close times to improved forecasting and real-time reporting to advanced security and reliability, Business Central may be the tool to help you increase overall efficiency.
