Integration with Microsoft products
Business Central is perfectly integrated with products from the Microsoft Office family. First of all, with Excel (it is possible to export almost any system view to MS Excel, as well as pasting data “cut” from the sheet). On the other hand, Integration with MS Outlook, which allows you to work directly from the e-mail client (e.g. entering new clients and contacts, order handling). Another interesting example is the integration with MS Sharepoint, which can act as an external drive, e.g. for orders or cost invoices in PDF.

In addition to the Office suite, it is worth noting the excellent integration with Business Intelligence solutions from Microsoft in the form of Power BI.
