Easy Customization, Tailored UI
Compared to GP, BC is a much modern, lean and cleaner platform! It offers a visual drag-and-drop interface that allows users with no programming skills to adapt the software using no-code/low-code alternatives to fit their company needs. BC’s business logic may be simply extended to conduct more complex functions for more sophisticated modifications. And all of your modifications will be saved even if the software is updated which is not the case in GP. Users may simply navigate the system and delve down into the details of individual transactions, accounts, reports, and graphs with a single click! The easy-to-use Role Centre capabilities can also be used to personalise the user experience.

“Edit in Excel” in BC

This is the feature which every BC user loves! The ability to Edit in Excel in BC is a huge reason why changing to BC is such a great choice! Mass record modifications in GP requires the assistance of your IT department while in BC, you can export mass record lists to Excel, update the records, and then publish them back to BC using BC’s ‘Edit in Excel’ capabilities. All without needing to report a problem to your IT department! Additionally, you must run a utility to repair the master record when rectifying an error in GP, such as an inaccurate customer name or ID. All these types of corrections are considerably easier to make in BC. All you have to do is update the customer card’s record, and your error will be fixed in a jiffy!

Transparent Pricing
The BC licensing cost is determined transparently by the number of users each month. Moving from an on-premises system like GP to a cloud-based “software-as-a-service” (SaaS) platform like BC is a paradigm shift in how your ERP is priced and paid for. There will be an upfront greenfield implementation expense for both GP and Business Central (Navision) however, once BC is installed, recurring licencing charges are calculated per user per month. As a result, you’ll be able to effortlessly add and remove people as needed.
