Dynaway EAM (EAM-BC) for Microsoft Dynamics® 365 Business Central is an Enterprise Asset Management module for managing Assets and maintenance jobs in Microsoft Dynamics® 365 for Business Central (D365BC).
The Enterprise Asset Management solution (EAM-BC) is developed by Dynaway and integrates with several modules in D365BC.
EAM-BC allows you to efficiently manage and carry out all tasks related to maintenance and service of many types of equipment (Assets) in your company, for example, work centers, buildings, and other types of production equipment.
Assets can be created in a hierarchical structure, and they can be related to locations. Maintenance jobs (Work Orders) can be planned at all levels in the Asset hierarchy.
Dynaway EAM can be installed from Microsoft AppSource and from inside your Business Central installation. Here we cover the first part (installing EAM-BC from Microsoft AppSource).
