A Complete Overview Of Your Business, So You Can Start Making Informed Decisions

Technology has helped businesses come a long way when it comes to reporting, but so many of today’s organisations are not taking advantage of powerful reporting and analytics capabilities. With Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, it has never been simpler or faster to get intelligent insights into your business. Spot trends, identify areas of concern and monitor profits and sales – it’s time to push your business to the next level.


Real-Time Data When You Need It

Businesses capture a huge amount of data through daily activities, from sales figures and purchases to expenses and budgets. Harnessing this data can prove a powerful tool for key decision-makers. Business Central allows you to gather, analyse and share your company data. With role centric user access, you only see what you need or want to.


Intelligent Reporting, Informed Decisions

Real-time data means quick and easy reporting on essential business operations, such as trends, profits and sales. The integration with Power BI enables visual graphs and reports to be created for any area of the system. That means greater visibility of your business, the ability to prevent issues and a more intuitive experience for your users.


Personalise Data to Harness Information

‘Dimensions’ plays an important role in BI, by acting as analytical markers. This data is used to group entries with similar characteristics, such as customers, regions, products, and salesperson, and easily retrieve these groups for analysis. These dimensions can even be used in budgeting for planning expectations and reviewing actual outcomes.


Powerful Integration with Products You Already Use

Excel is a key resource for anyone who deals with any aspect of data, particularly those involved in financial accounts; but nobody wants to have to duplicate data they’ve already inputted elsewhere. Business Central intelligently produces reports using real-time data which can be exported for use in Excel – not the other way around.

Viewing and Editing Lists in Excel

Easily export lists (e.g. orders, invoices) to Excel for viewing or editing. With the Open in Excel action, you can make changes to records in Excel and save them as an Excel file, without affecting data in Business Central. With the Edit in Excel action, you make changes to records in Excel and then publish the changes back to Business Central.


Analyse Financial Statements in Excel

In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, you can see KPIs and get overviews of the company’s financial state. You can also open lists in Excel and analyse the data there. But you can also export heavy financial statements such as the balance sheet or the income statement to Excel, analyse the data, and print the reports.

Properly Manage Jobs with Time Sheets

Easy Setup of Scheduled Reporting

For reports which are frequently needed, you can schedule a report to run at a specific date and time. Scheduled reports are entered in a job queue and processed at your chosen time. You choose the ‘Schedule’ option and then you enter information such as printer, time and date. Once it’s processed, it’s removed from the job queue.


Managing Report and Document Layouts

A report layout controls content and format of the report, including which data fields of a report dataset appear on the report and how they are arranged, text style, images, and more. From Business Central, you can change which layout is used on a report, create new layout, or modify the existing layouts. Easily switch between report layouts too.
