The newest member of Microsoft Dynamics 365 family is called Dynamics 365 Business Central, which is an enterprise resource planning (ERP) platform designed for the small to mid-sized business.

You also have one legacy system for inventory management, another one for payroll, something else for sales, and so on. You know there's a lot of duplication in these systems, and it takes some effort to integrate everything together.
