CloudFronts is a Microsoft Gold partner based in Mumbai and its motto is to enable businesses around the world to solve their complex business challenges with Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Power Platform. Please explore http://www.cloudfronts.com
As CloudFronts continues to expand swiftly, there has been a huge challenge among the accounts team to manage their accounting on conventional QuickBooks platform and hence there was a need to introduce a more robust accounting platform that could integrate well with other Microsoft applications. The up-gradation in QuickBooks is not seamless. Mainly, QuickBooks’ benefits are only accounting driven and not company driven.
Being a Microsoft Gold partner and having implemented more than 1000 projects for their clients, Business Central was the next obvious choice for CloudFronts. Business Central is a comprehensive ERP solution from Microsoft that will enable CloudFronts to handle more complex business processes and improvise its compliance. For example, QuickBooks imposes limits on how many records the system can process and maintain in its archive, the number of employees, posted transactions, and many more. Such limitations can be easily overcome by Business Central.
The technical team executed the data migration process seamlessly to migrate customers, vendors, items, and accounts from QuickBooks to Business Central. Since Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation (PSA) is used currently as the project management tool, BC to PSA (now Project Operations) integration is executed using Azure Functions.
