Acumatica 2020-06-16T13:46:02-07:00 How Dynamics 365 Business Central Outperforms Acumatica.

Why Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central?

offers a flexible and realistic ERP subscription option that meets the ideal needs of small and mid-size companies and their need for an affordable solution that still offers all the power and sophistication of the best of Microsoft’s ERP solutions.
Business Central is offered in two versions – the first option is called Dynamics 365 Business Central “Essentials” which is a comprehensive ERP solution including modules for Financial Management to Customer Relationship Management to Supply Chain Management to Project Management and more.
The second option is called Dynamics 365 Business Central “Premium” which gives you the option to upgrade with Manufacturing and Service Management modules.
Dynamics 365 BC is intimately interwoven with the full suite – with integrations to Microsoft Outlook, Word, and Excel.  There are native integrations with Power BI, Microsoft’s data visualization, and BI tool.  This tight interaction with Microsoft 365 significantly reduces employee hesitation when it comes to learning a new application or process.
Stable and consistent commands and controls across the different components increases user acceptance and adoption.
This backed up by the fact that there are more than 160,000 companies around the world running on Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (formerly known as Dynamics NAV), it eases owners’ minds that they can easily find employees to hire that have previous experience with the product.

More Importantly, Why NOT Acumatica?

Interoperability between applications within an is a must and when various project management features don’t collaborate together.

As experienced with Acumatica’s ERP system

then the end result can be costly.

Acumatica lacks direct integration with the Microsoft Office products

because, well, it’s not a Microsoft product.
Acumatica can’t replicate anything like BC when it comes to editing D365 BC data – like master records and open transactions in Excel – and then the updates can be published back into the D365 BC database.
Little things like exporting reports, analyses, and tables, and all the values coming over in the right form are little struggles you won’t deal with in Microsoft Dynamics 365 BC.
While Microsoft offers D365 Business Central in just two versions, Acumatica is far more modular.
D365 BC includes the majority of modules like Finance, Supply Chain, Human Resources, Fixed Assets, and other modules as standard in it’s “Essential” package (only thing that requires an upgrade to Premium is Manufacturing  Service Management).

Acumatica will charge for the add-on of any modules in it’s standard package

increasing the monthly subscription costs for all of your users very quickly if you don’t need a “vanilla” package….which most customers typically need more.
Some other issues are deployment options, .

Or the lack of choices in the case of Acumatica

Microsoft offers On-Premise, True Cloud Subscription, or Hybrid models for all types of businesses that want flexibility with how they deploy their ERP solution.

Acumatica can only be deployed in the cloud

so depending on how your company grows, acquires other entities, etc.

You are painted into one box with Acumatica

With BC you have multiple options to fit as needed for your company.
This raises issues with data migration if you decide to migrate off your ERP system in the future.
You won’t have direct access to the database and system, and simply will be relegated to export CSV files.

The same is with all solutions born in the cloud like Acumatica or NetSuite

With D365 BC, Microsoft offers the free ability to have a full back-up made of your full database and delivered on a scheduled basis to a system that you own, maintain, and have physical control over.
You aren’t “held hostage” like you are with Acumatica/NetSuite when trying to migrate to a new system.
Acumatica has less than 10,000 customers……just 150,000 shy of Dynamics 365 Business Central’s number.
Lastly, .

Acumatica has only been around since 2008

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (formerly NAV) has been around since 1987

So while Acumatica is still working out the “kinks” and trying to build its partner network, ISV portfolio, etc.
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is tried and true after many years of perfecting its product.
It was the industry leader in the ’90s and continues to be the industry leader in SMB ERP solutions in 2020 & beyond.
The support of the Microsoft Stack (SQL, SharePoint, Office 365, Teams, etc.) and the flexibility of Microsoft Azure cloud gives companies peace of mind that they can invest in a Unified Business Solution with Microsoft.
The question between Dynamics GP vs.
Acumatica is a simple one for any small business looking to improve their resource management.

3 challenges when upgrading Dynamics NAV

3 challenges when upgrading Dynamics NAV.

When you are considering an upgrade to Dynamics NAV 2018 or Dynamics 365 Business Central

you must decide how to  migrate only relevant data – and what to do about the  customizations, you have made to the old solution.
You should also consider how to move to a  100 % standard solution in order to avoid the same challenge with future upgrades.
Most companies spend a lot of money upgrading customized ERP solutions.
Money is spent on migrating custom built functionality to a new version.
It is a lot of money spent without creating any business value.
This is why you should make the next upgrade your last.
Upgrade NAV or buy new?.
Unfortunately, there is not always much difference in terms of price and work volume.

If you have an older version of Dynamics NAV

it can be quite a substantial undertaking to upgrade to a new version.
Typical challenges include the following:  You have customizations in the old version , and they need to be reviewed one by one to ensure that they won’t create problems in the new version.
Some of the custom solutions may no longer be relevant, or may no longer work as intended, or you might not even need them any longer.
There is considerable work involved in assessing these one by one.
You are locked into the old version.
The new version certainly offers new, .

Smart features that your work processes in NAV are not ready to take advantage of

Unfortunately, a lot of companies cannot make use of the new features because they are locked into old processes and customizations.
Data needs to be migrated into the new version.
The new version may have a different data structure.
Maybe your customizations have been modified to conform to the new version, and now the data needs to be modified accordingly.
Perhaps you have some old, cluttered data that you want to get rid of.
Unfortunately, you usually need to transfer everything over, with no exceptions, unless you start over with a blank database.

That’s why upgrading causes headaches for NAV owners

That’s why upgrading causes headaches for NAV owners – even the mere thought of it

Abakion’s solution to this challenge is to move you over to a standard solution:.
All of your old customizations should be deleted.
We hold a number of workshops to ensure that your work processes fit in with the new solution.
You also need to have an overview of how your processes will have to be adjusted a little.
Your specific needs must be supported through the set-up in the new solution.
The Master Data module gives you the option of creating your own data structure.
The Document Customizer module enables you to customize invoices, delivery notes and so on.
Customizations in the old version will become settings in the new version.
You can choose which data you want to transfer – and how many years of history you want to include.
We transfer your data into the new solution using a data migration tool that makes the process easy.
You choose how the data is mapped to the standard chart of accounts in the new solution.
The decision is up to you.
Hear what a customer has to say.
AVN Group is happy about never having to go through a migration project on Dynamics NAV again.
Data migration – this is what we do.
We need to move your data from your old solution into the new one.
The challenge here, of course, is that the data format is not always the same.

Even if you are moving from an earlier version of Dynamics NAV

the data structure will have changed and you may have added a lot of fields in the old solution that contain important data you need to transfer.

If you have an earlier version of NAV

then we set to work in your old solution.
We have made our Master Data Information module, which you get in the new NAV, .

Available for all earlier versions of NAV

This means that you can install the Master Data module in your old solution and then you can start moving the data into the new structure, which makes migration to the new version very easy.
It is a really smart and efficient process.
The next step is to move data from the old version to the new one.
We have a migration tool that handles that.
It does not really matter whether you are moving from an earlier version of NAV or from another ERP system.
As long as the data can be output in a comma separated file, we can map the data in Excel and execute the transfer, as you will see in a minute.
You will have some work to do in Excel if you are coming from another ERP system, .

Since this package is based on being able to retrieve everything in NAV

But it can easily be done – you will just have an extra task to complete.

If you are coming from an earlier version of NAV

Abakion will take care of it all with our migration tool.
Migration with no effort.

If you have been working with Dynamics NAV for many years

then you are used to data migration being a difficult process that takes a long time.
So a little scepticism is understandable.
But you will see that our Master Data module and data migration tool make the process quite simple.
You should also hear how we move your historical data from the old solution into the new one.
The simplest way is just to start over from the beginning: make an opening balance and then just get started.
That is what a lot of companies choose to do, which is why we have priced the migration of historical data separately.
Remember to include this in your business case if it applies to your company.
If you choose to include historical data, then we need to make sure that we only move a select set of high-quality data over to the new version.
