Choosing a new ERP is not a trivial task. Not only do you need to ensure that the features and functions are aligned with your needs, you also need to choose the right Microsoft partner to work with you. At Endeavour we work with your business needs in mind, following a step by step process to ensure that Dynamics 365 Business Central can be configured to meet your unique requirements and complex business needs.
Choosing the right partner
Our ERP consultants are experts in their field and leverage Finance and Accounting best-practices; Change Management and Training tactics; Manufacturing and Distribution best practices; and work with our Technical cloud-integrations team to ensure that your business targets can be met.
A key input to your ERP roadmap is the financial impact of implementing a new ERP. From a Business Central implementation perspective there is a lot of assistance that you will need from the ERP experts at Endeavour Solutions to perform an analysis and strategic FIT-GAP assessment between your current ERP and Dynamics 365 Business Central. Cloud-integrations will need to be performed, key financial reports will need to be created, and your user community will need to be trained not only on features and functions, but also on your optimized and redesigned business processes.
For clients currently on Microsoft Dynamics GP, there is NO quick or simple migration path to Dynamics 365 Business Central. Moving to Business Central should be viewed more like a full new ERP implementation. Endeavour's unique offering, as Canada's largest Dynamics GP partner, is that we have the depth to help in re-defining business processes, developing training materials and 're-tooling' your team in support of Dynamics 365 Business Central, should you choose to change platforms.
For clients currently on Microsoft Dynamics NAV, there is a migration path to Dynamics 365 Business Central, however, it is not quick, nor is it simple. Luckily many of the screens, functions and business processes are quite similar, so end-user training will be faster; however from a technical perspective, any modifications, 3rd party add-ons, reports, and integrations that you have now, will each need to be re-built for Business Central. An alternative is to upgrade to NAV 2018 and stay on Dynamics NAV for a few additional years.
