Connect your Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Plug-and-Play with Procuros
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, formerly also called Navision, is a cloud-based, all-in-one business management solution. Catering to small and medium-sized businesses, it enables them to manage finances, operations, sales and customer service in one single solution.
With the Procuros Integration Hub, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central customers can now exchange their trade documents from the ERP interface with existing and new trade partners. Setting up the connection is fast and easy with the plug-and-play simpleEDI connector, powered by M&P Business Solutions GmbH or the Procuros API.
But why connect trade partners and the respective B2B transactions in the first place?
Traditional EDI is complex, costly and error-prone
For many small and medium-sized businesses, digitizing and automating the order-to-cash process remains a major challenge. Despite its importance to the growth of a business, the process is oftentimes still characterized by manual processes, resulting in delays, erroneous transactions and shipment delays.
EDI is one way to digitize these B2B transactions. Many trade partners, among others also in the food and retail sector, are actively enforcing EDI onto their suppliers. For suppliers, setting up these EDI connections are a real pain, as they often involve:
long and costly EDI projects due to one-to-one connections per trade partner
high internal IT costs for the setup and maintenance of these EDI connections
many other internal and external stakeholders
no support in the communication with trade partners
errors to be resolved by IT due to their inherent complexity
Thus, doing business with several trade partners means setting up a multitude of single EDI connections to your Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.
Not with Procuros! With the launch of the simpleEDI connector powered by M&P Business solutions, we enable end-to-end connections between Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central users and customers by facilitating the technical connection of any customers to any Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central ERP.
