Navigating the Post-Integration Phase: Support and Training in Business Central

Think of Business Central as a super-smart app that helps businesses manage their work. After a company uses it, they enters a phase where they need to keep learning and getting help to use it best. That’s what we call the post-integration phase.

Our company, Addend Analytics, helps businesses during this time by teaching them how to use Business Central and providing help whenever needed. It’s like having a tutor and a guide while learning to use a new and exciting tool.

This blog will discuss why it’s essential to keep learning and getting support after you start using Business Central and how we at Addend Analytics can help.
