What makes Microsoft 365 Business Central perfect for Family Offices?

Maxime Wattel - July 30, 2019

Single and multi-family offices are developing into private banks, providing more and more services to their beneficiary owners. But they are in need, like any other business, to take the digital transformation turn.

However, the digital requirements of Family Offices are not the same as traditional banks. Being small/medium sized organisations, they don't need full bank management propriety systems, as they are "only" managing assets from the buy-side.

Single and multiple family offices require Family Office software that is quick to implement, offers flexible setup and is easy to learn.


The path to integrated systems

Business Central offers a fully integrated system, tailor-made for the Family Office sector and offering personalised options to fit specific needs.

But why is an integrated system useful? Fully integrated Family Office software offers a myriad of benefits:

  • Manage your financials, accelerate financial close and report with accuracy, while ensuring compliance.
  • Automate and secure your portfolio management, increase visibility across your front to back office and gain greater control over your investment process
  • Adapt and improve your level of financial service, maximize investment opportunities and better serve beneficiary owners with recommendations
  • Organize your purchase process and approval workflow with precision

Build knowledge, make informed decisions

But making day-to-day management easier is not the only benefit. Joining up all data can serve to provide insight to make informed decisions.

This Family Office software can easily transform masses of data into simple to read reports, allowing for trend analysis and future planning.

  • Connect data across accounting, banking & treasury, portfolio, compliance, Fixed assets and Purchase to get an end-to-end view of the whole of the group
  • Accelerate statutory financial close and reporting
  • Analyse your data using rich graphical visualization tools and produce secured dashboards using real-time data
  • Improve forecast accuracy with cash reports and cash flow forecast spanning the whole of the financial group

Family Office software joins up data to provide insight for informed decisions.
