Is Business Central easy to use?
Like any piece of software, once you know it, it’s easy to use. Business Central is different than GP, so there will be a learning curve. It does include intuitive navigation, complete with a search feature offering fuzzy matching logic to help you easily find what you are looking for. Most users wind up using the search box for navigation as opposed to relying on the menu structure.
Many Business Central implementation partners offer personalized Business Central user training for organizations wishing to speed up the learning process.
Do I have to use Office 365 if I have Business Central?
No, but there is a deep integration between Business Central and Office 365. For one, you can use the same login for Office 365 and Business Central. There is built-in Excel integration and export. You can use Microsoft Word to set up report layouts. The Outlook plug-in adds a whole new Outlook pane that shows Business Central data right in your email app. Here’s an example using a customer-based scenario.
