Business Central provides functionality for common business processes in small and medium-sized companies, mainly within wholesale and professional services. However, more complex processes, such as assembly, manufacturing, service, and directed warehouse management are also supported.
Business Central includes standard configurations for most business processes, but you can change the configuration to suit your business needs. From your Role Center, you can access assisted setup guides that help you configure certain scenarios and add features to Business Central. Several areas of business functionality must be set up manually.
Make and collect payments, manage your cash flow, defer income and revenue, prepare year-end closing, and manage fixed assets.
Business Central includes a standard configuration for most financial processes, but you can change it to suit your business needs. Learn more at Setting Up Finance.
The default configuration includes a chart of accounts and standard posting groups, which make the process of assigning default general ledger posting accounts to customers, vendors, and items more efficient.
Get insight to the performance of your business activities through budgets, account schedules, and analysis views.
Businesses capture a tremendous amount of data during daily activities. This data, which reflects such things as the organization’s sales figures, purchases, operational expenses, employee salaries, and budgets, represents valuable information, or business intelligence (BI), for decision makers. Business Central contains many features to help you gather, analyze, and share your company data.
Manage sales processes and information, such as quotes, orders, returns, and customer accounts, and make drop shipments.
You create a sales invoice or sales order to record your agreement with a customer to sell certain products on certain delivery and payment terms.
You must use sales orders if your sales process requires you to ship parts of an order quantity, for example, because the full quantity is not available right away. If you sell items by delivering directly from your vendor to your customer, as a drop shipment, then you must also use sales orders. In all other respects, sales orders work the same way as sales invoices. With sales orders, you can also use the order promising functionality to communicate certain delivery dates to your customers.
Manage purchasing processes and information, such as invoices, orders, returns, and vendor accounts, and purchase items from sales documents.
You create a purchase invoice or purchase order to record the cost of purchases and to track accounts payable. If you need to control an inventory, purchase invoices are also used to dynamically update inventory levels so that you can minimize your inventory costs and provide better customer service. The purchasing costs, including service expenses, and inventory values that result from posting purchase invoices contribute to profit figures and other financial KPIs on your Role Center.
Ensure an effective flow of received and shipped goods.
There are two things that are important to all businesses that physically move goods in and out of their warehouse:

Implement these features in different combinations to tailor your warehouse processes for your business. Allow for increasing complexity as your company grows and your processes change.
Schedule service calls and set up service orders, and track repair parts and supplies.
Providing ongoing service to customers is an important part of any business and one that can be a source of customer satisfaction and loyalty, in addition to revenue. However, managing and tracking service is not always easy, and Business Central provides a set of tools to help. These tools are designed to support repair shop and field service operations, and can be used in business scenarios such as complex customer service distribution systems, industrial service environments with bills of materials, and high volume dispatching of service technicians with requirements for spare parts management.
