About five years ago, the question was what season are you: Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter
This was a way to help determine what your “colour palette” would be, help you choose the right shades of clothing and make-up. My shade was simply warm: a warm Spring or a warm Autumn. No matter what, just give me warm! As the days start to get shorter and the sun sets lower in the sky, I hear my inner self – Go South and be Warm.

What does any of this have to do with financial management solutions or technology you may be asking. Well, I recently attended a presentation of Microsoft Dynamics Business Central, Microsoft’s cloud based ERP and the presenter did an amazing job fielding an abundance of “does it do this” or “does it do that” questions. Often times, the question and thus the answer was the same but just described and presented in a slightly different fashion. Sometimes the question needed to be answered with a graphic, other times with a report. Same data, same information, but presented differently.

Leveraging Technology

By leveraging PowerApps and the Common Data Service for Apps has created a growing ecosystem of applications from Microsoft and other software developers, like Menlo Technologies, build atop the platform and store data natively in the Common Data Services. This growing set of applications benefits and provides increased capabilities that make Dynamics 365 Business Central a world-class SaaS application this platform.

So “weather” you are a Spring, Summer, Winter, or Autumn kind of person, you will certainly find what you are looking for with Microsoft Dynamics Business Central. A solution that is easy to use, easy to deploy, and provides a visualization of your data in the format that best fits your needs.
