Business Functionality

Business Central provides functionality for common business processes in small and mid-sized companies, mainly within wholesale and professional services. However, more complex processes, such as assembly, manufacturing, service, and directed warehouse management are also supported.

Business Central includes standard configurations for most business processes, but you can change the configuration to suit your business’ needs. From your Role Center, you can access assisted setup guides that help you configure certain scenarios and add features to Business Central. Several areas of business functionality must be set up manually. For more information
