Success for small and midsized businesses requires agility
If small and midsized businesses (SMBs) have one thing in common, it is that they are all unique. Differentiate or fail is especially true when it comes to small and midsized business strategy. The secret sauce is what helps leaders of these companies blaze new trails and disrupt industries with innovative products and services. However, disrupting industries requires more than passion and great ideas; SMBs also need the ability to quickly adapt business and operating models to deliver on their vision and brand promises. And the level of business agility required for success takes an ecosystem to deliver.
Adapt faster with Dynamics 365 Business Central
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central provides a connected cloud business management solution for growing SMBs. Connected means you can bring together your finance, sales, services, and operations teams within a single application to get the insights needed to drive your business forward and be prepared for what’s next. While the out-of-the-box capabilities meet the needs for standard business operations, Dynamics 365 Business Central offers operational flexibility to help SMBs adapt faster to changing market conditions and customer expectations.
Our customers use Microsoft Power Platform, connected to Dynamics 365 Business Central, Office 365, Microsoft Azure, and hundreds of other apps, to further analyze data, build solutions, automate processes, and create virtual agents. Microsoft Power Apps turns ideas into organizational solutions by enabling everyone to build custom apps that solve unique business challenges.
We also work closely with our partners to support unique business processes, workflows, and operational models at scale. Our partners build a solution based on industry best practices, so you don’t have to recreate the wheel. You can find over 1,400 apps on Microsoft AppSource to easily tailor and extend Dynamics 365 Business Central to meet unique business or industry-specific needs. Filter for Dynamics 365 Business Central on AppSource and you will find apps for everything from A to Z— allocations, banking, and construction to warehousing, XML, yield, and zoning.
At our Directions North America partner conference on April 26, 2021, we will introduce some new applications that will be coming soon to Microsoft AppSource, including:
