How to work with basic focus on either money or quantities in Business Central?

Let’s look at the ERP users basic focus on either money or quantities, and I’ll explain why this is an important focus to be aware of.

This is what happens in the video

If this is all the processes you have in an ERP system from an overall perspective, of course, some of the processes are based on handling quantities for your inventory and your manufacturing and some of the processes are based on handling money transaction for all your money going in and out of the system.

And if you split it up very simple like this, you will have some of the process being focused on money, and if I further on, you have some of the process being focused on quantity, This is important to be aware of because most of the consultants and most of the users that I have met out there either based on focus on quantities or money.

So if you are an accountant or a salesperson or a purchaser or some sales person and purchases or a CEO, you would be focusing on money. If you’re an inventory Clerk or a production worker or something, you would be focusing on quantity.

And all the consultant that you will meet out there will be focused on either one or the other. It doesn’t mean that they can’t explain the other areas, but basically in their spine, they’re born with the focus of one thing or the other. I think in my 20 years in the ERP Market, I’ve only made one or two people being actually good at focusing on both equally.
