Carers Australia Chose D365 Business Central as their Financial Management Solution
November 21, 2019
Carers Queensland (CQ) is the peak body representing the state’s 474,000 unpaid family and community carers. While they do not directly deliver care services, CQ provides a single voice for carers and ensures the support they require is provided by government and the community more broadly. CQ deliver programs throughout the community often with multiple funding sources and spanning multiple financial years and have struggled to manage these with their current finance package.
CQ came to Dialog Dynamics for a financial management solution based on our reputation in the Not-for-profit sector and were already aware of Microsoft’s Dynamics NAV product. After initial consultation, no requirement for customisation was identified and this, along with their desire for a true SaaS product made them a perfect candidate for Microsoft’s soon to be released “Dynamics 365 Business Central” (365BC). As 365BC shares the same mature codebase as Dynamics NAV2018, configuration and migration of master data is underway using Dialog’s RapidStart methodology and will be uploaded to 365BC on an Azure tenant when available for deployment in July 2018.
With the combination of a lighter implementation approach and the release Microsoft’s first SaaS ERP option for the mid-market, the Dynamics department believe CQ will be the first of many businesses to implement a Microsoft ERP that may not have found a suitable product from the vendor until now.
