Cost Savings down the lane

Keeping your system up to date makes the transition to a new version of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central much smoother. Delaying an upgrade can cause more problems for your company because the longer you wait to upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, the more difficult it is to move to the most recent version. It makes the transition more complex and involves more time, which increases the potential for the extended downtime and increased costs.

Compliance Issues on Documents

Improved Cyber Security

VISTAS’ Recommendations:

Hardware: VISTAS recommends a test upgrade in a new environment where your new version can be carefully tested before going live. Upgrading to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central does not require any new hardware. Older equipment increases the risk of failure, and disaster recovery can be expensive and disruptive without a robust backup plan. Consider moving your business systems to the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central cloud. Maintaining on-premise servers is costly, especially up-front costs, and our dedicated Cloud service provides better security and backup than any organization could provide on its own.

Time is Money and vice versa: Most upgrades fall between 50-100 hours of planning, execution, and go-live support. Less complex upgrades can take less time. VISTAS has performed several upgrades, and we’ve got the process down to a science. After so much experience, we can provide fixed fee upgrade quotes in most cases.
