What is Quick Start Business Central ERP for Logistics & Distribution?


Our Quick Start Business Central ERP for Logistics & Distribution gives you quick and affordable access to a Dynamics 365 Business Central ERP or an upgrade on a legacy ERP or outdated ERP system. This solution has been built specifically for logistics and distribution companies to equip you with everything you need to get started with a new Microsoft ERP system. 

 

An ERP is important for logistics & distribution companies as it enables them to digitally empower their workforces, it allows them to unify data and operational processes, reduce the risk of errors, accurately predict customer behaviour and meet customer demands as well as providing one solution that supports operations and logistics excellence and much, much more.   

 

It is important to understand that this solution isn’t just for the biggest and best logistics & distribution companies as there is no reason as to why small and medium-sized companies operating in that sector can’t also benefit from the same benefits. 

 

As well as this, you will be pleased to discover that many features can be used in our Dynamics 365 Business Central ERP for Logistics & Distribution solution. 

Why choose Quick Start?


Moving from a legacy ERP system to a new one is so important for your business, particularly if you are becoming Cloud-based for the very first time as it can be time consuming and can prove somewhat problematic.  

Granted as a business we don’t wish to see any downtime, which is often the sticking point against change – even if a business is battling daily to make use of a legacy system that isn't right for their business anymore.  

That’s the reason why we created Quick Start.

After you have equipped us with all the information we require, we can get your business setup and fully trained in less than a week! 

  • Quick & easy implementation with no downtime.
  • Your business will be fully operational with a leading ERP system in less than a week and can start benefiting almost immediately
  • Your business will have an ERP system that can be upscaled at the drop of a hat as your business grows.
  • No functionality installation required as you will have all the main features at your disposal instantly which can be added to as and when required.
  • A single system that will enable you to review and run your business from one location. Long gone are the days you needed to integrate with other platforms to get this data as your data is all held in one place.
