Unleash Productivity with Copilot in Microsoft Business Central

Published: 22nd May 2024

Microsoft’s Business Central just got even easier to manage. Introducing Copilot, your very own AI-powered personal assistant, helping you speed up your day-to-day work by taking the menial tasks off your plate.

What is Copilot in Business Central?

Copilot is an intelligent assistant that leverages natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning to understand your requests and provide relevant suggestions. It acts as a virtual colleague, assisting you with various tasks within Business Central, such as data entry, report generation, and workflow automation.

Streamlining Data Entry

One of the most significant advantages of using Copilot is its ability to streamline data entry. With its advanced NLP capabilities, Copilot can understand your instructions and automatically populate fields within Business Central. This not only saves time but also reduces the risk of human error, ensuring accurate data entry.

According to DocuClipper, automated data entry boasts a >99.59% accuracy rate whereas human data entry can be as low as 96% accurate. That means 4 out of every 100 data points entered can include mistakes or be incorrect entirely.

Generating Insightful Reports

Reporting is a crucial aspect of any business; Copilot can significantly simplify this process. By understanding your requirements, Copilot can generate customised reports tailored to your specific needs. Whether you need sales reports, financial statements, or inventory analyses, Copilot can provide you with the necessary insights in just a few clicks.

Automating Workflows

Business processes often involve repetitive tasks that can be time-consuming and prone to errors. Streamlining business processes is easier than ever with Copilot helping to create Microsoft Power Automate flows using natural language. Users can simply express their needs directly in Business Central, and Copilot drafts an initial automation flow for you. From creating purchase orders to processing invoices, Copilot can handle a wide range of tasks, ensuring consistency throughout.

Nine out of ten people want simpler ways to automate daily tasks, Copilot helps to free time so employees can focus on their most meaningful work.*

Seamless Integration

Copilot seamlessly integrates with Business Central, providing a unified experience. You can access Copilot directly from within the Business Central interface, eliminating the need to switch between different applications. This seamless integration ensures a smooth workflow and enhances productivity.

  • Copilot typically provides suggestions based on your input. Pay attention to these recommendations—they can save time and improve accuracy.
