The wait is over! Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, the powerful all-in-one business management solution with an all-new user experience and enhanced capabilities is available in the UAE. It’s easy to use and adapt so you can connect your business and make smarter decisions.

Put simply, Business Central is a modern solution for modern businesses and can empower the fast-growing SME sector enabling them to streamline financial and business processes, improve customer interactions and make better decisions with integrated intelligence.

Business Central is tailor-made for SME businesses that have outgrown basic accounting software and are ready to connect their business across functions, processes and disciplines, including sales, finance, human resources, operations, logistics and marketing.

This is particularly relevant to the UAE where, according to the UAE Banks Federation, SMEs account for 94% of companies operating in the country and according to a Microsoft survey, half of these consider cloud computing as their main priority to harness their untapped digital potential in 2018-2019.

At Cobweb we have long understood the issues facing SMEs as they progress from start-up phase and have designed specific, subscription-based products to ensure they don’t waste time wrestling with standalone systems that are not connected to other important aspects of day-to-day operations.

A case in point is CobwebCompleteFinance, created specifically for the UAE, it is the SME road to VAT compliance & More! This cloud-based accounting solution, built around the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement Plan with a financial add-on module, enables businesses to become VAT compliant and gives SMEs a mini Enterprise Resource Plan that allows for an end-to-end digital transformation strategy. What’s more, because it’s been developed specifically for SMEs, there is also no minimum Dynamics license requirement.

The arrival of Business Central gives us more creative possibilities. By connecting data across accounting, sales, purchasing, inventory, and customer engagement, Business Central gives SMEs built-in Power BI dashboards. Financial reporting is swifter and more compliant; accounts receivables and payables are streamlined.

Planning is easier and more accurate as financial forecasts can be refined through by modelling and data analysis across multiple dimensions; inventory levels can be optimized through built-in intelligence which can predict when and what to replenish. Business Central’s advanced analytics capabilities even allows for more effective prioritisation of sales leads based on revenue potential and monitors all customer interactions to deliver guidance on the best upsell, cross-sell and renewal opportunities.

With the arrival of Business Central there’s a new world of growth possibilities and increased competitiveness. We’re now planning to use the solution’s enhanced experience to upscale our offerings while making it comfortably affordable from as little as US $80 a month. Watch this space!
