Business Central for Manufacturers: Strengths and Weaknesses (No Kool-Aid)

11:00 - 11:45 Europium (120) Back to event schedule

Is Business Central a viable solution for Manufacturers out-of-the-box? Of course, it is! Sometimes it's the perfect fit. Except for when it isn't. Do your homework so you know where Business Central is strong, where the weaknesses lie, which gaps you can bridge the gaps with AppSource, and how it compares to its SaaS competitors like NetSuite, Acumatica and Intacct. I spent nearly a decade of my career in presales and have seen almost every kind of manufacturer. I've won many deals and lost many, and I'll share lessons from my experience so you can be prepared and increase your win rate!
