ElanWave – The First Customer Using Business Central in the Cloud and Adacta's Localization
ElanWave is an international software development company with offices in the Netherlands and Serbia, specialized in creating web and mobile applications tailored to clients’ requirements. As its business grew, ElanWave needed an all-in-one business management solution that would successfully connect its finances, costs and timesheet management while keeping their projects on time and under budget.
“Adacta displayed an incredible ability to collaborate in the process of adapting the new Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central product to the Serbian market. ElanWave sees Business Central as a strategically important platform not only for our regular operations but also for further development. As a partner in adapting and introducing a complex system into our business, Adacta demonstrated its professionalism and flexibility across all levels. Adacta ensured that the core components of our business are fully operational and ready to use. Their work is characterized by self-criticism and high standards for functional and technical quality.
"What we appreciate the most are the flexibility and support they displayed to our employees in the process of implementation. All the modules of implementation were explained to the smallest detail and with emphasis on our needs. What we would like to point out and what distinguishes Adacta from their competitors are co-operation, understanding the specifics of business needs and transparency in work.”
- Dejan Dujak, Founder at ElanWave.
Microsoft’s Official Launch of Business Central in Serbia
Microsoft Serbia officially launched Business Central on the Serbian market in February 2019 at an event in the Hotel Metropol Palace. Aleksandar Totović, Partner Technology Strategist for Microsoft Dynamics 365, leading speaker at the event, was really impressed by the solution:
“Business Central is a truly great and modern business solution. I deliberately avoided saying ‘ERP solution’, because Business Central overcame these artificial boundaries by becoming a member of the Dynamics 365 family. Today, it represents a complete and integrated business solution that goes beyond the boundaries of ERP and CRM. Integration with artificial intelligence, existing Office tools, and other modern cloud services make Business Central a solution that will greatly facilitate the work of our SMB clients, a market segment where these technologies were previously unavailable.”
- Aleksandar Totović, Partner Technology Strategist at Microsoft.
At the official launch event, Živoslav Damnjanović, Sales Director, Adacta, explained the journey of Business Central in ElanWave. As with all firsts, there were challenges with the first Business Central cloud-based implementation, but cooperation between the vendor and the customer is always key to success.
Business Central Offers On-Premise and Cloud Deployments
Business Central offers cloud-based and on-premise deployments. Serbia and Estonia are the only two countries in the Central and Eastern Europe where Business Central cloud is available now. We are looking forward to the next wave of Microsoft's localization approvals, which will include Slovenia and Croatia as well (expected in fall 2019).
As of 1 April, Adacta’s customers can purchase the on-premise version of the new solution in all countries, since Business Central is the successor to the Dynamics NAV, which is no longer available for purchase.
