Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Project Management Functionality


Email | Print

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is an all-in-one business management solution that’s easy to use and adapt, helping you connect your business and make smarter decisions.  Built on functionality within Microsoft Dynamics NAV and adaptable to extend business applications to other Microsoft Cloud Services such as Office 365, Microsoft Flow, Power BI and PowerApps; Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Solution can grow as your business requirements change while taking advantage of the latest technology.

In Business Central, you can perform common project management tasks, such as configuring a job and scheduling a resource, as well as providing the information needed to manage budgets and monitor progress. You can track machine and employee hours on the project by using time sheets.

Just like Microsoft Dynamics NAV, this next generation of NAV allows to select different roles for what function the user preforms. In the “project manager” role, you have a good overview, not only of individual jobs, but also of the allocation of employees, machinery and other resources being used in all projects.

Customers that select Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Versions have a choice of either “Essentials” or “Premium”, in addition to either a Cloud ERP or On-Premise Deployment.  With either deployment or either version, Business Central has robust Project Management Capabilities to precisely plans and track customer projects with functionality such as:

Resources:  Keep track of resources and prices. Register and sell resources, combine related resources into one resource group, or track individual resources. Divide resources into labor and equipment and allocate resources to a specific job in a time schedule.

Time Sheets:  Time Sheet is a simple and flexible solution for time registration with manager approval. Time Sheet provides integration to the Service, Jobs, and Basic Resources modules.

Capacity Management: Plan capacity and sales, and manage usage statistics and profitability of resources. Create your plan in a calendar system with the required level of detail and for the period of time that you need. Also monitor resource usage and get a complete overview of your capacity for each resource with information about availability and planned costs on orders and quotes.

Multiple Costs:  Manage alternative costs for resources and resource groups. The costs can be fixed or based on an additional percentage or an additional fixed charge. Define as many work types as you need.

Jobs: Keep track of usage on jobs and data for invoicing the customer. Manage both fixed-price jobs and time-and-materials jobs.
