What is Quick Start Business Central for Churches & Religious Institutions?

Our Quick Start Business Central ERP for Churches & Religious Institutions affords your organisation an affordable Business Central ERP or an upgrade on an outdated one. This solution has been specifically built to suit those operating within the church & religion sectors to allow them to get up & running on a leading Microsoft ERP solution at an affordable cost. 


An ERP holds vital importance for churches & religious institutions as it gives them better visibility over members, improved reporting and business intelligence capabilities, better governance & streamlining of the purchase to pay process, accounting of funds (donations) and much, much more. 


Moreover, this solution is not only designed for the largest churches & religious institutions but also the smaller ones too who can achieve the same benefits from doing so. 


As well as this, you can utilise a whole host of features available in our Business Central ERP for Churches & Religious institutions solution as and when you need them. 

Why choose Quick Start?

Making the switch from a legacy ERP system to a modern ERP is vital for your organisation as you move towards the Cloud as it can take some time and cause some minor issues.  

Completing the process with minimal disruption to the organisation is often the thing that holds back the process starting in the first place but those organisations continue to use outdated ERP systems which makes their day-to-day job harder than it needs to be. 

That’s the reason why we created Quick Start.
