Phishing emails are a form of fraud. These emails try to get personal information such as usernames, passwords, or credit card numbers. This is done by impersonating a reputable brand or person within an organization. If an employee opens a link that they don't recognize, it can be very harmful to your company. Start protecting your company by adding Microsoft 365 to your business and gaining an advanced level of security and threat protection. It's also recommended to educate employees on how to spot phishing emails to ensure that your business stays safe. Here are two tips on how to spot a phishing email.   

Check the Sender's Email Address 

There are so many emails that get sent to your inbox on a daily basis. Hackers can create a fake email address and select the display name that it will come from. Any from address that is not compliant with the RFC 5322 will be flagged and handled according to the phishing policy setup in Microsoft 365. When a suspicious email is received here are some things to watch out for:

1) Do you recognize the senders' email address, or it is a random string of letters? 
2) You will see that the sender is not someone you work with. 
3) There will be links that you are told to click on. The links will be to websites with malicious content, do not click them. 

Check for Spelling Mistakes in the Body of the Email and/or in the Send Address

Hackers tend to live in different parts of the world and may not have the strongest writing skills. They rely on online translators to help them write messages, which is great for translating but not necessarily for making text grammatically correct. It's common for a phishing email to have spelling mistakes and be grammatically incorrect, which could be overlooked. If an employee receives a suspicious email, they should ask these two questions to help spot if it's a phishing email or not.

1) Does the message contain grammatical errors an English speaker shouldn't have?
2) Is the email consistent with previous emails I've received from this person?

It's essential for a small business to have security in place to detect these emails before they can cause any harm. Microsoft 365 has an ATP anti-phishing protection to protect your business from any malicious phishing attacks. Microsoft 365 offers a lot of security and advanced threat protection that small businesses should have to run a safe and successful business.

Here at WebSan Solutions, we’ve had a lot of hands-on experience when it comes to implementing Microsoft Dynamics Software. From our experience, we’ve gathered five major problems a company would want to avoid in order to succeed in implementing Business Central.

1. Don’t have the IT department and leadership executives make all the buying decisions. Include other employees that will be actively using Business Central from the finance, operations, manufacturing and warehouse departments. They can provide constructive feedback to make Business Central work best with your current business processes. 

2. Give yourself time in the implementation process to go from the decision-making phase to the launch phase. If this process gets rushed, there's a high chance that the project won't be successful. Try implementing Business Central in smaller stages. Rushing the process would only create a lot of unnecessary problems and make employees feel overwhelmed.

3. Implementations, especially the more complex ones, can take up to half a year to be completed. Best practices would indicate that you need to come up with a plan. Putting a plan into effect will set the stage for where the business is headed, reduce any employee confusion and avoid running into problems.

4. If you don't invest in employee training, there's a risk of disrupting the implementation process. The process of upgrading to Business Central can be a frustrating time for employees. Keeping open communication about the implementation status and providing a substantial amount of training creates more involved employees. Make your employees feel more involved with this process and become more well-rounded when it comes to using Business Central.

5. Many companies neglect the importance of testing the newly installed software before the go-live date. Your employees need to test out Business Central before the go-live so they can bring attention to any technical problems and if everything is in working order. By missing this part of the implementation process, the system might not be ready for go-live and could result in an unsuccessful launch.

When it comes to implementing Business Central, there needs to be a plan put into place. If you avoid the five major problems listed above, your business will strive towards a successful implementation.

In order to use the manufacturing module, you need to a Business Central premium license. The manufacturing module will help shorten the time it takes to create BOMs, routings, work centers, and machine centers. In this new era of digital manufacturing, it forces businesses to work quicker and smarter to beat out the competition. By utilizing this module in Business Central your company gains the competitive advantage of creating more goods in a more efficient manner.

1. Managing Inventory
When using the manufacturing module in Business Central, your company will be able to better manage inventory. Within seconds, a list can be displayed with all the different items that are in stock. It will show whether the item is currently in stock, how many are on hand and how many are on order.

2. Integrate Your Business Processes
One of the biggest benefits of using the manufacturing module is having all the data in one place. Production managers can make updates instantly to keep the system up-to-date with all its inventory. Users working in the front and in the back office will have access to the same information creating a more harmonized work dynamic.

3. Unify Production Data
Another one of the biggest benefits of using the manufacturing module in Business Central is analytics. This goes beyond just knowing what is in stock and what needs to order but analyzing trends within your business. Such trends can be spotted in the supply chain, production process, inventory management, sales, profit margins, and even customer behavior.

4. Improved Product Quality
The customer’s expectations for product quality is higher than it has ever been before. Using the manufacturing module will make it easier for production managers to meet these growing standards. Having a system in place that provides traceability and tracking enables a company to monitor the quality status of all its centers and products. This will provide real-time reports on machines, components, stations, shifts, and even operators that were involved in the production. Production Managers can then ensure only the best quality products are being sent out to customers.

5. Decreased Production Time
Innovative businesses who use the manufacturing module in Business Central can optimize assembly time. The module will make a more efficient process by decreasing the overall creation time and cost of each product. Tools are available to take a customer’s order on-the-spot and list any alterations that need to be made. Once the production manager receives this order it can be finalized and then sent into production. There is no need for days or weeks of back and forth emails which can delay the cycle time of an item. By lessening the time-to-market process, companies can save time and money and allocate these resources elsewhere.

Being able to manage inventory, collect data, improve product quality, and decrease production time creates a stronger competitive advantage.

Introduction to Power BI: What is Power BI?

Microsoft Power BI can help company owners take a closer look into their business using stunning dashboards and visuals. They can also be optimized to locate and display only the most critical data. This data can then be used by company owners to review and streamline their business processes wherever it may be needed.

There are a large variety of data sources that connect to Power BI, and the list is continuously being updated. This data can then be altered and placed as a visual, measured or calculated column and then is added to a dashboard. It’s possible to share this information with colleagues at work by granting them access right from within Power BI.

These are six main components that make Power BI into such a strong and powerful tool.

Power Query: Importing and formatting the Data
The Power Query allows you to import data from sources such as SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, DB2, and the list goes on. It can also extract data from multiple file formats such as CSV, Text, and Excel. The imported data can be formatted by adding columns, charts or any other visuals onto the dashboard.

Power Pivot: Relationship Creating Tool
Relationships can be created using the Power Pivot function inside Power BI. Power Pivot is a powerful tool used to review data and create visual data models. To link tables together, Power Pivot can analyze the databases and see if the tables have any matching data inside. This function also allows the user to create calculations using the data, such as a calculated column or a measurement.

Power View: Data Visualization Tool
Power View is used to transform the data into interactive charts, graphs, maps, and other visuals. These visuals will only display the most important data since the data can be filtered using Filter Panes, slicers, and cross-filters.

Power Map: 3D Geospatial tool
The Power Map feature is used to create charts for Geospatial data into a 3D visual. Using the Geospatial users can display a metric visually on a map using visuals or even a heatmap. The maps are connected to Bing and are constantly refreshing to display real-time data.

Power Q&A: Answering and Question search engine
Users can ask the Q&A any questions regarding the data and get the quickest answers. Make sure to use natural language that the system would understand such as “Number of Products by Location.” Click Here for a list of words and terminology that Power BI Q&A recognizes.

Microsoft Power BI has six main components that make it such a powerful tool. It has become one of the most popular programs amongst small business owners to analyze their data. Watch this “Power BI 101 Webinar” video that goes beyond just the fundamentals of Power BI. This video will demonstrate how to create a dashboard using Power BI.
