Following the release of Microsoft Dynamics 街霸5 Business Central in early April, there has been a fantastic reception to the stunning interface, ease of use and the low investment cost of getting up and running for the customer.

However, there has also been a burning question ever since the release: “What is the difference between Dynamics 街霸5 Business Central and 街霸5 ?’ 

This statement won’t help the cause, Dynamics 街霸5 Business Central contains the same standard Dynamics functionality that we already know and love from 街霸5 ; with the solution being touted as ‘NAV in the cloud’. Furthermore, both solutions contain tight integration into Office 街霸5 , Power BI, Dynamics 街霸5 Customer Engagement and more.

"OK, so what on earth is the difference then?"

Initial Investment

For the customer, undoubtedly the greatest difference is the initial investment required to implement a cloud-based only (for now) Dynamics 街霸5 Business Central solution within your business. As it’s cloud based, there is no upfront cost required for the hardware and associated infrastructure nor for the on-premise license.

Dynamics 街霸5 Business Central is licensed as a per user and per month subscription. You can get up and running as an Essential user for £52.40 per month or a Premium user for just £75.40 per month.

Accessing new capabilities

Traditionally, 街霸5 updates would be included in the annual version release, which created an exciting window where everybody would be anticipating the new features in the next release. Alternatively, the per user per month Dynamics 街霸5 Business Central subscription lends perfectly to the software being constantly updated as you continue your journey as a user to leave you constantly satisfied.

Extending the capabilities

Dynamics 街霸5 Business Central can be enhanced through “apps” purchased via Microsoft AppSource. All the apps have been tested and approved by Microsoft, so you can browse at your leisure to discover a proven app that best suits your business needs. Additionally, you can customise Dynamics 街霸5 Business Central through customer specific extensions that are created and uploaded directly to the tenant by a partner.

On the other hand, 街霸5 is enhanced via “extensions” purchased through your partner as either specifically developed add-on products (similar to apps for Dynamics 街霸5 for Business Central) or following some bespoke development by a trusted Dynamics partner.

So which business management solution will suit your business needs best?

Essentially, both solutions are targeted at small to medium-sized companies. Dynamics 街霸5 Business Central is a more attractive prospect to smaller companies whose entry level accounting system can no longer cut it, so they are now searching for their first ERP solution.

Alternatively, 街霸5 is the ideal solution for companies with complex needs, who require customisation of the software functionality to match the unique demands of their company. Currently, 街霸5 is the best solution out there for a business that craves having an on-premise solution. However, all signs point to Dynamics 街霸5 Business Central also being available as an on-premise deployment in the future.
