It's part 3 of our blog series where we focus on the top 5 pain points we hear from customers when they’re considering switching finance systems. Whether you’re using Sage 50, QuickBooks, Xero, Exchequer or something else, these are the top reasons why our customers change system.
I’ll show how Business Central addresses these pain points, and if these sound familiar, we'll show you the next steps.
"WE WANT A MODERN, CLOUD ERP SYSTEM"
Working from home has highlighted the issues with legacy technology. Servers on site need maintaining. Desktop software needs reinstalling for laptop users. Servers can be running outdated operating systems simply to support the finance system, but this leaves them exposed to malware and other security compromise.
Once employees are working from home, they might need to use a VPN or remote desktop software to get access to the system. Files might be stored on a network drive, and it might even be impossible to log onto the system for some users.
"Again, Business Central fixes all these issues by being a modern system, designed for modern businesses."
For a start, it’s all browser based. It works on Chrome, Edge, Safari and Firefox. You might even get it working on old Internet Explorer (RIP). This means it’s very easily accessed from whatever device you’re on.
You use the same username and password that you have for your Teams, Outlook, Office 365 apps, and it uses the same level of security.
What’s more, there are apps for iOS and Android, so you truly can use it anywhere. Field teams on the road don’t need to phone in or dial in to their systems, and home workers can use it on their local machines if needed too.
Just because Business Central is browser based though, doesn’t mean it’s not customisable.
You can completely make it your own – moving, hiding, adding fields that are important to you. Saving views that you’ll come back to each day/week. The biggest part of a new system is getting it to feel like your own, and with its modern user interface and customisability, Business Central is perfect for this.
