Is Business Central a viable solution for Manufacturers out-of-the-box? Of course, it is! Sometimes it's the perfect fit. Except for when it isn't. Do your homework so you know where Business Central is strong, where the weaknesses lie, which gaps you can bridge the gaps with AppSource, and how it compares to its SaaS competitors like NetSuite, Acumatica and Intacct. I spent nearly a decade of my career in presales and have seen almost every kind of manufacturer. I've won many deals and lost many, and I'll share lessons from my experience so you can be prepared and increase your win rate!

Most people may not be able to tell the differences between the Online and On-Premises version of Business Central. Can you? While it is essentially the same product, it is far from identical. If you are a Business Central Consultant, a CIO or an IT Administrator, you have the important responsibility of guiding a business towards making the right choice between online and On-Premises and it starts with knowing what is different about each version and the impact of these differences. With each new release, the differences change – whether it is in the application area, the platform, or the licensing. Make sure you are armed with the most current knowledge and not just something you heard from a friend or read on the internet. This session is updated with the latest information to reflect all the changes made through Business Central 2023 Release Wave 2, with a brief nod to changes slated for 2024 Release Wave 1 coming this April.

Ever searched YouTube for "Power Automate flows"? There are 100s of videos, maybe more! Try searching for "Power Automate flows for Business Central" and you'll find about a dozen. And most of them focus on the simple demo examples of Workflow approval or create flows using out-of-the-box BC API pages. Great for some demo magic, but it doesn't get you very far when you need to create flows for the real world. Here's where I can help. I'll teach you how to use data from your custom tables and pages, and call bound actions to run code in Business Central from your Power Automate flow. And best of all, it's not really that hard once you learn how it's done. No fluff, no kool-aid, just real talk and real examples.
