Multi-entity accounting software over Dynamics 365 Business Central


In the dynamic landscape of business, managing finances across multiple entities has become a paramount challenge. Gravity’s multi-entity accounting software emerges as a compelling choice, offering a range of features that set it apart from competitors, including Dynamics 365 Business Central (BC) aka Dynamics 365BC. 

Every new application may introduce appealing features that will enhance efficiency across your organization. However, if your accounting system is not built natively to provide real-time insights across multiple companies, you’ll have to add third-party applications to make it work. 

When choosing a new accounting system, it’s crucial to focus on key features that align with your company’s needs.  Create a list and compare your requirements with the capabilities each feature offers. For instance:

  • Do you manage multiple companies with extensive inter-company activities?

  • Do you require consolidated financial reporting and management across branches or subsidiaries?

  • Does the platform have an open API to allow to integrate with other essential business applications?


More features, more problems

While Business Central appears comprehensive, it may lack certain features.  Some deficiencies are addressed by resellers through third-party add-ons, but the question arises: why patch an application on day one?  It’s akin to buying a car without an engine and having to source it separately.

Business Central, originating from the Dynamics NAV backbone designed for larger enterprises, comes with many complex features unnecessary for small business to middle-market companies. Growing into these features might seem plausible, but dealing with them daily can be cumbersome. It's like buying a large SUV for two people and wondering why your gas mileage is consistently poor.

Tailored for growth

Enter Gravity Software, a superior alternative tailored specifically for small to mid-size companies transitioning from entry-level or legacy systems. Gravity offers all the necessary features for growing companies without the unnecessary weight of Business Central or other expensive enterprise applications. Designed for ease of learning and use, and to cater to the needs of growing businesses with multiple entities. Its architecture is inherently flexible, allowing seamless scalability as your business expands. Unlike Dynamics 365BC, which may require extensive customization to meet the demands of multi-company accounting, Gravity Software is built with a focus on adaptability and growth.

True cloud advantage

Gravity Software operates in the cloud, providing real-time accessibility and collaboration for users across different locations. Dynamics 365 Business Central, while cloud-based, may not deliver the same level of performance and responsiveness. Gravity's true cloud-based accounting software advantage ensures that your financial data is always up to date, allowing for quicker decision-making and improved overall efficiency.

Effortless consolidation

One of the standout features of Gravity Software is its seamless consolidation capabilities. Businesses with multiple entities often struggle with consolidating financial data efficiently. Gravity simplifies this process, offering a consolidated view of financials across all entities in real-time. In comparison, Dynamics 365 BC may require additional configurations and third-party applications to achieve similar consolidation capabilities.

User-friendly interface

Gravity boasts an intuitive and user-friendly interface that minimizes the learning curve for users. Microsoft Business Central, on the other hand, can be complex, requiring extensive training and onboarding. Gravity's commitment to user experience ensures that your team can quickly adapt to the software, leading to increased productivity and reduced errors.

Cost-effective solution

Choosing Gravity Software over Microsoft Business Central can be a cost-effective decision for businesses, especially those with multiple entities. Gravity offers competitive pricing with transparent subscription models, eliminating the need for expensive add-ons and customization. This contrasts with Business Central, where additional costs can accrue rapidly as businesses strive to meet their unique multi-company accounting requirements.
