Overview of Dynamics 365 business central

If you already have Microsoft 365 business applications you know how important the tools it provides can be to the day-to-day running of your business. However, keeping up to date with the very latest add-ons, additions and new features is the only way to ensure you are getting the very best from this industry-leading software.

If you’re not already onboard, this is also a great place to learn how Dynamics 365 business central could help you, as the October 2018 release takes things to an even higher level of functionality and efficiency than ever before.

New features

The new features are planned for release in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central between October 2018 and March 2019. They include updates and innovations to the whole range of functionality and services that Dynamics 365 business central provides.

Desktop ease of use, Localisation and translation apps, and new productivity features all come together in this latest release to bring what was already an industry leader to a position where it is even more ahead of the curve.

Refreshed desktop experience

Greater productivity is easily achievable with an all-refreshed desktop in the October 2018 release. Dynamics 365 Business Central now offers powerful new ways of working with lists and a thoroughly updated Page Search function.

The layout of data is much improved as it makes better use of available screen space, resulting in better data visibility and also readability. A new look comes to details pages including the customer card, and a new command bar in Business Central pulls everything together exactly where you need it to be.

Access from anywhere

One of the biggest challenges facing any modern business is dealing with the fact that access to shared systems needs to be available from anywhere and on a range of different devices. Users of Business Central can take advantage of the enhanced capabilities to stay connected on the go regardless of the device or platform they are using.

The October ’18 release allows users who want to connect to on-premises, hybrid, or cloud versions of Business Central to do so on the same level. The Dynamics 365 Business Central universal app is how this functionality is put into practice, and it is available for Windows 10 running on desktop, tablet, or phone, Android installed on tablets and phones and iOS for both tablets and phones,

There is another aspect of accessibility that some other applications overlook, and that is making sure everyone is empowered. Microsoft accessibility standards ensure that a diverse workforce has access to all the tools they need to get the job done, so low-vision and low-mobility solutions are at the fore.

Localisation and translation apps

Business Central offers localisation and translation apps allow markets that Microsoft does not cover to develop functionality on top of the international version of Business Central.

A list of markets that are currently supported can be found in the Business Central docs sections on the Local Functionality landing page. If you want to find out more about how the October ’18 release can work for you, get in touch with us today.
