Business Central is a powerful finance system out-of-the-box, but you can really super charge your solution with ISVs (Independent Software Vendors). ISV apps extend the functionality of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, allowing you to do so much more.
There is a huge range of ISVs available for Business Central, and this blog will explain some of the benefits of using ISVs and highlight the best ISV options we recommend to our customers.
- Extra Functionality
ISV solutions extend the functionality of Business Central, meaning you can tailor your system to the unique requirements of your business and industry. For example, there are specific ISVs for distribution, retail, warehousing and inventory management.
- Improved integration
ISVs can help improve the integrations between Business Central and other business systems, for example, your Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solution. Better integration means improved productivity and more accurate data and reporting.
- Streamline your processes
ISVs can assist with streamlining and automating common business processes, such as expense management, document processing and supplier payments. This can lead to efficiency savings and reduced error rates.
- Personalise your system
ISV add-ons are a great option once you’re familiar with how Business Central works and want to start customising it to suit your unique business needs. We often see our customers adding ISVs in phase 2 developments a few months after they’ve gone live with Business Central.
- Make your team happy!
ISVs can help increase user adoption of Business Central by providing automated solutions to specific challenges that may be unique to your industry. ISVs offer some really cool solutions to common problems and can help reduce the frustrations of system users.
- Extra Functionality
In summary, we 💚 ISV’s! They can offer your business a way of customising Business Central to suit particular needs, without going down the route of bigger, more complex systems. Business Central is a system that can grow along with your business and ISVs are a great way of expanding the out-of-the-box functionality and making your finance system work smarter.
