Why you should replace your C5 with Business Central

Are you still working with C5 or AX? Then you should consider replacing your financial system with Business Central - and there are several reasons for this.

A long time ago - back in 2013 - Microsoft announced that Microsoft Dynamics C5 was going to retire. Many chose to continue using C5 when the system was still being updated.  But unfortunately, everything has an end, and in 2019 Microsoft stopped updating the C5, and of course, this has major consequences for you who still use the system. 

Avoid security risks and integration issues by switching to business central

When C5 is no longer maintained and updated, you expose your business to major security risks. Unfortunately, the missing update of the C5 leaves possible serious security holes that can have damaging consequences for your business. In addition, sikkerdigital also recommends using systems that are up to date. You should therefore consider changing the system and version when the old one is no longer updated and supported by the supplier.

This can affect your workflow because you can't do what you need to do, making it difficult and heavy to grow your business.
