Business Central Functional Areas

Usually when I talk with people with a small (or without) experience in NAV or Business Central but with ERP knowledge, they don’t know what functional areas are covered with Business Central. Mostly, they find something on internet that it is for SMB and they assume it cannot be used for complex business processes. Yes, Business Central is on the first place for SMB, but it can be found in very complex business as well and it covers the big number of business processes. And yes, Business Central is full ERP system.

Because of that, I wanted to show simplified map what business process are covered with standard Business Central. But just to clarify, this map represents only an overview of business processes… and if you want to see all of them, I can suggest to discuss with someone who is experienced and who can show everything what is possible.

As this picture cannot be viewed good here on blog post (small resolution), I’m suggesting to download it and to open as a picture on your desktop.

And what is important on the end… Business Central is easily extended solution. You can extend it adding new functional areas from AppSource or developing them from your partners.

  1. I dont get it. you are saying BC has all of these functional areas ? i wasnt aware BC has MRP & MPS.
    Or are you saying it only has the areas that are boxed off.

    • MRP and MPS are standard parts of BC, but you have to have Premium User license. Just run Requisition Worksheet and you will find it as actions. But it requires some other configuration to be used. If you attend UGSummit next week, I’ll have one session on this topic.
