Business Central Setup and Configuration Boot Camp
Class ID: NBCCF
Are you a business planning to implement Dynamics 365 Business Central on your own? Are you a partner looking for more information on how to efficiently and accurately implement this software for your customers? This workshop-format class provides a unique environment to learn all the foundational information you need to get started with implementing Dynamics 365 Business Central. You’ll leave class with hands-on implementation experience and be ready to tackle your own project.
Our first half day includes observation of a complete live implementation of the software from beginning to end. The next three days reviews in detail everything you need to know about how to migrate data and beginning balances, essential setups for each area, and how choices made at setup affect behavior of the software after go-live. The last half day will be your chance to try it on your own – every student will implement a simulated company from beginning to end in our hands-on learning environment.
