Deployment and Support Package
Business Central is part of the Microsoft Dynamics 365 suite, bringing together finance, sales, purchasing, and operations and service management functionality in one, comprehensive solution.
Business Central automates, secures and streamlines these essential processes, and enables organisations to connect data across departments, to give an end-to-end view of the business – aiding more informed, smarter decisions.
