[Data Sync Request] Microsoft Business Central

PieSync supported syncing Microsoft Business Central. You can keep using PieSync through 2021, but in the meantime we're checking if we need to prioritize turning this into a data sync app? Please upvote! Thanks.

@JobA would it help if we'd be pulling in the sales invoices into HubSpot (that's one thing we're working on)? or would that not paint a complete picture?

@JobA Can you confirm you'd want to sync HubSpot deals with what Business Central calls "Sales Opportunities"?

@samwilliam Thanks for the offer 😉

We're aware the Business Central sync is far from optimized.

 

Here's why: all data sync apps (92 at the time of writing) all stem, quite incredibly, from the same data sync framework.

Whether it's Mailchimp, ZohoCRM, or Business Central, the underlying syncing logic is the same. 

This shared logic makes it incredibly scalable (for HubSpot), though on the flipside it results in limitations when you consider integrations independently. 

Now, with a lot of our data syncs, the value provided by the fundamental sync is considerable. In the case of Business Central, I'll be the very first to admit it's just not ideal ... yet. 

 

Look for improvements this year where we'll start adding much more finance-like objects.

Having the syncs live on HubSpot framework directly will help us in making the sync better. However, for now, don't expect additional sync features.

What extra features are you looking for?

Hi Frans, 

Great to read that the data sync app for Microsoft Business Central has been put into "in planning status".  As we absolutely need this integration. Any idea on when the app can be expected?  Or does "in planning " mean that there still needs to be decided on when to start the development?

@FransLeys  That's great news!  I hope there will be some additional sync features when compared to Piesync as we were missing some flexibility & options there.

Looking forward to trying this when it gets released.
Feature request - We would love to be able to sync sales data back to deals from Business Central.

Hey team, would be great to see the integration include other record types (eg. tickets etc) in the future to help businesses that would like to integrate ticketing systems etc.

Are there plans already to sync deals between Hubspot and Business Central? That would help us bigtime!

Yes, or any other way to have sales in Business Central as succesful deals
in Hubspot

This would help us if this would create a deal with status completed on the right customer including order amount. That way we can keep sending information of deals to GoogleAds to determine ROI on our campaigns. However, it would be even better if proposals, orders and products can be synced.

We are currently implementing BC. Our goal is to make proposals and orders in Business Central.  Also, all orders that are made online are directly placed in Business Central.

Preferably we can do marketing automations in Hubspot based on proposals, orders and the products in them. I think the optimal situation would be that all proposals / orders where synced to a deal in Hubspot (with a different dealstatus) including all products (so a product sync would be great as well).

This way you do not use the sales opportunities in BC. I am not sure if this is good or bad because I do not have experience with this yet.
