Dynamics 365 Business Central is an all-in-one business management solution that is easy to use and adapt, helping you connect your business and make smarter decisions.

Why integrate with Dynamics 365 Business Central?

By integrating your apps with Dynamics 365 Business Central, you can create experiences that span your business needs. You can create solutions that empower your users to perform key business tasks and functions. You can use Microsoft Graph to access and manage your financials, work with business contacts, create and send sales and purchasing documents, and gain insights from financial reports.

Synchronize your business applications

Many companies use different, disconnected business applications to manage various functions of the business. Microsoft Graph enables you to connect the data to bring these applications together. This makes it easy to connect your payroll application to employee records, connect your expense application to vendor records, and have your CRM application keep your customer records up to date. Connect your data to keep your applications in sync.

Create custom apps to manage your business processes

Every business is different and can have specialized business processes. These processes can be streamlined with custom apps tailored to the process. Microsoft Graph makes it easy to integrate these apps with your financial data. Building a sales or field service app that creates sales documents, an expense app that creates purchasing documents, or a payroll app that creates general ledger journals becomes possible, keeping all your documents in your financial system.

Gain insights from your financial data

Microsoft Graph provides access to your financial reports. Connect BI tools and apps to your balance sheet, cash flow statement, payables and receivables aging reports, and trial balance reports to create BI dashboards and ensure that users have access to the information they need.
