As we start the first few weeks of 2023, and your business considers what you are looking to achieve over the course of the year. Do you find that looking for a new finance system is at the top of your list? If you are waiting for the right time to do this then we’ve got some bad news for you, there is never a right time!
In our latest blog article, we will showcase how you can deliver on your 2023 goals through the use of a new finance system designed specifically for both small and medium sized businesses.
Do the research
If you have made the decision to look for a new finance system then this is when you need to start the research. We would strongly recommend that you start this research by outlining exactly what functionality and features are vital to the day-to-day running of your business. After you have this, you can then start looking at the different options that are available for you. As a Microsoft Gold partner, we implement Microsoft ERP solutions such as Dynamics 365 Business Central which is worth considering.
It is also important to take into account that not all partners are the same so you need to do your research on the partners as well as the options available. You may find that some partners focus more on the custom and highly tailored and heavy implementations. However, this is where Advantage differs – we work with many small and medium sized businesses to help equip them with easily accessible and affordable solutions.
Mobilise your workforce
If you do make the decision to opt for a new system, don’t neglect the importance of allocating enough time to get your workforce trained up on your new system. Users being able to easily use the software is vital to ensuring that implementations are successful, so you need to ensure that you have buy in from your employees from the outset to enable you to maximise your use of the system as your business grows. The best systems are fully scalable as your business grows which means that you don’t have to move systems again!
This is where Dynamics 365 Business Central comes to the rescue. It seamlessly integrates with Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) giving your users some familiarity from the start so they can easily find their way around the new system. Better still, you are able to improve processes and efficiencies from the start as you discover the full value of a fully integrated system.
See this system as an investment rather than a purchase
It goes without saying but choosing to implement a new finance system can be seen as a significant investment for any small or medium-sized business which is why we have our Quick Start Business Central package to try and keep your implementation costs as low as possible with no hidden costs attached.
Advantage are experts in working with small and medium-sized businesses and have perfected an effective end-to-end approach when it comes to implementation to enable you to firmly grasp the basics of the system as well as demonstrate extra functionality that can be added as your business grows. We are able to get small and medium-sized businesses up and running on Business Central in a week with low costs and hardly any disruption.
