Handling Invoices within Dynamics 365 Business Central


When it comes to a comprehensive financial and operations solution, invoicing capabilities are an absolute must. Fortunately for professional and financial service companies, Microsoft’s latest ERP solution, Dynamics 365 Business Central, has it covered.

Business Central was designed to provide SMBs with all the ERP functionality that they require to drive their success, as well as to support them as they grow; all within a comprehensive cloud-based solution. However, for those companies or individuals who are dubious of moving from their on-premise solutions such as Dynamics NAV to Business Central, it’s useful to gain an understanding of the potential benefits that come from adopting a cloud-based ERP solution.

Familiar functionality with a new UI

If you’ve had any experience with a modern ERP solution, then you’ll feel right at home with Business Central’s invoicing system. Being the successor to Microsoft’s popular Dynamics NAV solution, Business Central takes all the familiar functions and layouts end users expect and houses them within an easy-to-navigate, user-friendly interface called the ‘graphic identity’. This sleek and appealing new UI makes the creation, management and handling of invoices simpler and more efficient, meaning the invoicing process is quick and easy for end users.

Powerful automation capabilities

As a cloud-based ERP solution, Business Central is a prime candidate to take full advantage of Microsoft’s ever-growing arsenal of powerful AI and process automation tools. End users can utilise Business Central’s seamless integration potential with any of Microsoft’s many PowerApps applications designed by and for Dynamics 365 Business Central end-users, as well as process automation applications such as Microsoft Flow; providing end-users with the flexibility to integrate and produce their own AI-powered applications to enhance and automate their ERP functions, all within the Microsoft cloud.

Handle invoices from anywhere, on any device

As a solution that fully embraces the power and potential of the cloud, Business Central is a truly flexible and comprehensive solution. Employees can access and handle any of the data stored within it from any device or location that has been provided with the required access rights. This means that an employee can manage, send and receive sales invoices from their phone or other mobile devices whilst on the move, greatly improving your company’s payment efficiency and reliability.

Staying on the right side of new regulations

Lastly, Business Central’s ability to remain constantly updated, thanks to its cloud-based nature, means your business can continue to operate without fear of breaching any new regulations. Perhaps the most relevant example of this for the UK market is the upcoming ‘Making Tax Digital’ regulation, set to come into force from April 2019. Microsoft have already assured companies operating on their ERP and CRM solutions, including Business Central, that their solutions will be more than capable of providing their businesses with the tools to maintain their compliance regardless of the changes these new regulations are set to impose.
