Both Business Central and D365 for Sales deliver excellent value for businesses—from managing your financials, automating the supply chain, optimizing your operations and everything in between. 

But, how do you differentiate between the two and choose the solution that's right for your business? Lets take a look. 

Dynamics 365 Business Central offers a great dashboard in the sales & relationship role center that provides users an overview of prospective customers and their status in the sale pipeline. Users can manage all types of communication between your company and contacts, such as by email, letter, telephone and meetings.

  • Boost sales and improve service to manage the sales process from start to finish and deliver exceptional service to a connected network of customers
  • Deliver projects on time and under budget to plan and monitor your projects with real-time metrics on resources, profitability, tasks and progress

D365 for Sales turns up the volume on all aspects of lead management. Opportunity management is tightly coupled with leads to offer built-in business process flows and logic surrounding revenue.  Emails, tasks, appointments, phone calls or custom activities (either from D365 or Outlook) can be linked to provide far greater dimension to the account and contact management. The solution provides more comprehensive, built-in analytics and Sales AI can be used for leads, accounts, contacts and opportunities.

With D365 Sales, elevate your sales transformation by:

  • Smart selling with contextual AI to build trusted relationships
