Find your apps
Abakion offers apps for your Dynamics 365 Business Central (or Dynamics NAV if you prefer), so you can expand your functionality easily.
AppSource is Microsoft’s app store where you can buy extensions for your ERP solution – just like you would download a new app for your phone.
You can also buy our apps through other ERP suppliers. Abakion does not need to be registered as your supplier on your Microsoft license.
What are apps really…?
Back in the days we used to call is “extensions” or “modules”, and today many call it “add-ons” or “apps”.
The majority of Abakion’s customers have used these apps for years – simply because they replace many of the customizations. That is why our Chief Strategy Officer, Sune, is constantly thinking about apps.
There are goods reasons for being interested in apps:
When implementing a new ERP solution, you are focused on whether the solution covers your company’s needs.
But the way this functionality is provided is very important. Essentially, there are 4 ways your supplier can provide the functionality:
- Microsoft standard: The functionality is a part of the basic solution from Microsoft. Microsoft has committed to maintaining and developing the functionality.
- Microsoft-partner standard: The functionality is a part of an app provided by a Microsoft partner. The Microsoft partner has committed to maintaining and developing the functionality.
- Setup: The business processes can be supported by setting up parameters in the solution. That means you are not changing the code – you are only changing the data. That could be an approval procedure, an invoice layout, an extra language etc.
- Customizations: The functionality is supported by changing or making additions to the code. It is the easy way around, but the consequence is that the above mentioned methods are no longer standard.
By choosing customizationscustomizations you lose all change readiness. You can no longer just upgrade or add new apps to your solution because the customizations may cause conflicts. Many companies end up feeling stuck in old solutions because of their customizations.
Only the green methodsshould be used to providing your Dynamics solution. This is perfectly possible.
By using the green methods, you keep your change readiness. Furthermore, you will never have to go through another migration project – in the future, upgrades are simply updates to the solution provided by Microsoft and the Microsoft partners.
That is why apps are so important.
