In a time where digitalization is moving fast, we must adapt our offerings towards new technology and new customer needs. You can never stop and expect the work we do today will be good enough tomorrow. When Business Central was released for the first time it was a big change in how we develop and offer business software. We had a new technical platform to start from and we had to think in new ways. To be in the front line of partners around the world we had to adapt fast, start developing apps that could make the daily work easier for those working in Business Central and create solutions for the future. That is when and why SmartApps were founded.
SmartApps are developing smart applications for Business Central that help the customer to customize their business solution in an easy way. The work is done without having a consultant or developer doing the work for you. With apps you can install and uninstall customizations for your business in a smooth and easy way. It is those customizations we develop here at SmartApps.
With this way of working, we can get away from adapting every single solution to every single customer, which both is time-consuming and increases the cost for you as a customer. Many times, different customers ask for the same feature and if we can create that as a “standard customization” in an app, we can all come out as winners. Lower costs and less time spent is the result for everyone.
There is also a security aspect with choosing apps as customizations instead of building it directly to your business solution. In the past, customization have always made upgrades more difficult and costly, with apps we we skip that part. Today Dynamics 365 Business Central is constantly updated with new and improved functionality. All our apps undergo the Microsoft validation process to ensure that the extension is secure and meets the standard of Dynamics 365 Business Central for every version. Selecting apps validated by Microsoft over extensions not available on AppSource gives you a more secure business application at a predictable cost and at the same time tailored to your needs. Our apps are all certified by Microsoft which means that it doesn´t affect any standard code, this makes everything easier when upgrading your system if a new version of Business Central is released.
This new technique and way of working opens for scalability. It could give even small companies the opportunity to work in a powerful business solution without having to pay an enormous amount of money. We get away from expensive customized solutions and instead deliver a business solution that fits your business here and now. Today you can connect your ERP-system to your CRM-system and have it integrated with a Power BI platform to a much lower cost.
Today we can offer different apps that makes the daily work easier for every user in Business Central Online. Our app Story Point will help you to manage your projects, if you use Parrot, recurring invoicing will be easier and with Badger, you start building tailored reports in Power BI.
