Reasons to Upgrade to Business Central

At Synergy Technology, we understand how hard it can be to manage a company and to make smart business decisions, especially when there is a lack of communication between departments, consistency and time management.

That is where Synergy Technology can help to make your business shine, with an all-in-one business management solution that is easy to use and adapt: Business Central.

Here are some of the reasons why you should upgrade to Business Central.

Business Central On-Premises Perpetual

If your business already uses Dynamics 365, then you will receive 2 named users for every 1 concurrent Dynamics 365 user which was purchased before 1st October 2018. Therefore, if you have the minimum requirements which is the Starter Pack, your business will end up with 6 essential users.

This is a great way for you and your business to try out Business Central whilst saving money, in which you will gain an end-to-end view of your business to help you manage your finances easier, keep projects on time and under budget and improve your customer service.

On-Premise/Cloud

Since Dynamics NAV became a part of Business Central, it has been available as both an on the cloud and an on-premise solution for businesses. What this means is that you can choose which solution would be faster and more appropriate for your business.

For example, if you choose a cloud solution and later find out that an on-premise solution would be a better choice for your business, then it is possible to move from the cloud to on-premise.

Business Central SaaS

Another great reason you will want to upgrade to Business Central for is because of Business Central SaaS, which is enabling you to save 40% on licenses until June 30th, 2021.

The rise of the virtual payslip

Gone are the days when payroll was concerned only with pay, tax and National Insurance contributions. Now payroll departments are expected to manage pension contributions, Save as You Earn share option schemes, Give As You Earn charitable giving schemes; salary sacrifice and flexible benefits plans. Not to mention the complex compliance and HMRC demands placed upon them.

Did you know? 1 in 20 employees in the UK is paid using a Pegasus payroll system

Payslips in particular have always been a necessary evil. Not only do they take a significant amount of time to produce and issue to employees, they amass considerable print and postage costs. Not to mention the added worry of employee queries when payslips are not received, mislaid or a include discrepancies.

In an effort to address this administrative burden, e-payslips – whereby the printing, sorting and posting processes are all removed literally at the click of a button – have been the source of much discussion in the industry for the last few years. However, the concept of online payslips has remained a point of discussion rather than a reality. A number of organisations are reluctant to take on this new method due to security concerns, cultural barriers and a lack of robust solutions on the market.

A considerable number of Payroll Administrators have significantly changed the way payslips are managed within their business. Many have adopted a Payroll self-service, whereby employees can access personal information, including payslips, via a dedicated online portal.

Employees can have the peace of mind that they no longer need to worry about losing their payslip under a pile of work, accidently throwing it in the recycling bin or spending a whole afternoon routing through the loft and copious amounts of paperwork to dig out last years P60 to assist with a tax return. The process becomes quite simple. They can simply log on and download. While security concerns around e-payslips were once voiced, when evaluating the scenario of a payslip being left on a desk versus one being held in a file behind a password, it is easy to see why organisations are now embracing this new way of working.

As payroll professionals realise the cost and time advantages to converting, payroll administrators will see the continued rise of payroll self-service, e-payslips and e-P60s, highlighting that the ‘virtual’ payslip model is very much here to stay. Employees get convenience, choice and predictability and payroll departments get to cut their costs, reduce hassle and save time.

If you are currently running Opera 3 and would like more information on Pegasus e-mail payslips and P60s, or simply have a few questions, please contact us on 0345 456 0050.

How to Fix Mail Link Issue between Outlook & SuperOffice

Over the last couple of months, we have been made aware of the same issue arising between Outlook and SuperOffice for our customers. The issue at hand is the ability to archive emails from Outlook to SuperOffice persistently disables on Outlook, therefore making users unable to archive emails.

Luckily, there is a simple fix to this issue which everyone can do! Here is our quick and handy guide to fixing the mail link issue between your Outlook and SuperOffice.

Step One: Check for Installation of Add-in

To simply check for the ‘SuperOffice Ribbon’ in your Outlook, go to Outlook, File, Options and then Add-ins.

Can you not see a ‘SuperOffice Ribbon’ amongst your add-ins as shown in the screenshot below? This may mean that you need to install the add-in.

Installation of SuperOffice add-in to Outlook.

Simply follow these steps:

  1. Go to your Control Panel.
  2. Look for either SuperOffice Mail Link or something that could be that, for example, ‘SO Mail’
  3. Uninstall the application if it is older than v11.2.6985
  4. Go to the following URL and download the latest SuperOffice Mail Link: https://www3.superoffice.com/DownloadService/
  5. Follow the instructions for installing the application, allowing the application permission to your computer.
  6. Once done, you may be asked for your username and password to be entered. If so, enter your details. If you do not get asked, then go to the add-ins menu in Outlook and enable it*. It should then appear in Outlook.

*Follow to step three to learn how to enable the add-in.

Step Two: Check for Inactive Add-in

Another reason for the add-in not working is if it is an inactive application. To find out if that is so, go to Outlook File, Options and then Add-ins.

Finally, close and re-open your Outlook to find that the SuperOffice Ribbon add-in now appears.

One last check you can conduct is to see if the SuperOffice Ribbon add-in is disabled. To see if it is disabled, you must open the Outlook options box once more via Outlook, File, Options and then Add-ins.

You will see at the bottom of the pop-up Outlook box, there is a ‘Manage’ section with a dropdown menu. Click on the dropdown menu for ‘Disabled Items. Then click ‘Go…’
