How To Get It
How do I get Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central?
Although Microsoft licences can be purchased directly from Microsoft, it’s rare that businesses choose to do this and, like many Microsoft products, are provided by one of the expert partners across the country, such as The HBP Group.
This enables users to purchase licences, implementation and support from a partner who can act as a point of contact and reassurance in future.
If you are looking to migrate to smarter business processes and systems and are considering Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, The HBP Group can offer you two seamless implementation methods based on your business needs and desires.
Dynamics SmartStart™ and Dynamics SmartScope™ are our two implementation methods. Both offer clear project scopes, fixed pricing and a clear set of features and functionalities that will be configured as part of the implementation process.
SmartStart is designed for businesses who want to carry out as much of the implementation process as possible themselves. SmartStart is broken down into packs, so the basic configuration and set up is carried out by The HBP Group but data imports, customisations and specific workflows are created by the end user – reducing the cost of the overall implementation, but requiring more input from the customer.
SmartScope is a fully managed process for implementing Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. Starting with a detailed scoping session, we will understand all of the processes required for a successful implementation and create a plan and fixed price quote to cover all areas. From there, we will manage everything from data import, software customisation, report creation and specific workflow processes. Just like SmartStart, SmartScope is broken down into packs, so we can agree with the end user which areas of the software are required and what level of customisation is needed.
How do I migrate my data into Dynamics 365 Business Central?
Data can be imported from any system to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. You can easily transfer information about customers, vendors, inventory, and bank accounts. If the integrity of your data is paramount to you, which we expect it is, then our recommendation is that you find a partner that can guarantee the safe migration of your data so that you can hit the ground running with your new system.
At The HBP Group, we ensure that your data is not only transferred accurately but it’s also verified by one of our AAT accredited experts, no matter which system you’re upgrading from – Xero, Quickbooks, Sage, Pegasus or anything else. Plus, it’s all backed up by our DataReady Guarantee.
How long does a Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central implementation take?
The fastest way we offer deployment of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central comes from our Dynamics SmartStart™ service, where core financial functionality can be prepared in 5 days. However, this pack requires input from the end-user to import data and configure the system themselves.
Our basic Dynamics SmartScope™ package, where implementation is fully managed, starts at 8 days.
As you would expect, both packages can be scaled up depending on the functionality required and in the most complex of projects, installation times could be around 30-40 days (though this is rare.)
