Business Central has its origins in Dynamics NAV, which was initially developed in the 1980s. While several enhancements have been implemented to enable it to function in the cloud as Business Central, its fundamental structure still rests on traditional software methodologies and architectures.
In contrast, Acumatica was purpose-built from the outset to be cloud-accessible, employing contemporary technology. This unique approach allows Acumatica to provide a broader range of features and capabilities compared to Business Central. Additionally, Acumatica delivers a fully integrated ERP and CRM solution at a cost proportional to the resources utilized. Furthermore, with Acumatica, users benefit from unlimited access for a single annual fee.
