Five areas where Dynamics 365 Business Central outperforms QuickBooks:
Ease of Automation
In Business Central, connected process flows across accounting, sales, purchasing and inventory, allows users to leverage automation to simplify and streamline their work - all within one unified dashboard.
Extensibility & Customization
QuickBooks under-performs when addressing functions like reporting and provides generic and impersonal support.
Built on Microsoft Azure platform, Business Central ships with embedded Power BI for advanced reporting and you can rely on an extensive and experienced partner network to provide implementation services, training and support.
QuickBooks can only provide users with a snapshot of sales performance for a given period.
Through user-defined KPI’s and dashboards, Business Central provides visibility into what drives the profitability of your business. It offers insight into current activities and trends, helping you prioritize sales leads based on revenue potential and uncover your best-performing up-sells and cross-sells.
QuickBooks has a security protocol that works best when you have a few users. As your company grows, and more people access your system, this basic security system just isn't good enough. In response businesses will excessively limit some users or give too much access to others, leading to organizational inefficiency.
With Business Central, you get extremely granular control options, as functions can be limited by permission, groups, dimensions or accounts. You can even use built-in workflows to add an additional layer of security.
Scalability and Efficiency
QuickBooks is a good fit for smaller companies, but once you achieve a certain complexity/size, processes like job costing, inventory management, reporting, and forecasting start to become a challenge.
With Business Central your environment will grow with you, adding apps and functionality along the way. Easily configurable and extensible, you can further customize Business Central to create a unique solution to accommodate your business or industry needs.
