24 hours a day. 7 days a week. Logistics is always on the move. And so is your business. No matter what time of day it is, there’s a constant coming and going of deliveries and incoming orders. They need to be handled quickly and efficiently. This is what sets you apart. But you can’t do it alone. You need a strong software solution to help you stand out in the face of acquisition frenzy and growing competition in the logistics market. A software solution that understands your industry and is reliable when it really matters. The Boltrics industry standard brings these two worlds together. With input from over 250 logistics providers, the software offers a wide range of functionality designed specifically for the logistics industry. And with the strong foundation of Microsoft Business Central, you also have all the technical tools you need to perform around the clock.
Business Central: A Strong Technical Foundation
Microsoft is one of the largest software companies in the world. And with Business Central, the American tech giant is building the latest innovations into its ERP system every day. More than 22,000 companies already use it. This is a solid foundation on which Boltrics has developed its logistics software. So not only do you have access to Boltrics’ essential logistics functionality, but you can also rely on a strong technical foundation. From standard functionality to cybersecurity. All Microsoft developments are available in your software solution.
Microsoft functionality woven into your logistics processes
At Boltrics, we often say that “focus is essential to success”. So at Boltrics, we focus on developing the logistics industry standard – with success. Microsoft Business Central helps us do this. In addition to all Boltrics developments, many standard Microsoft functionalities are indispensable for your logistics processes.
Think about personalizing your screens and overviews per user. In 3PL Dynamics you can choose what information you want to see and what you do not want to see. Without affecting the data of your colleagues. For example, drag and drop columns. Or hide fields in a map view. So you can focus on the data you need to do your job. This is what we call “standard Microsoft. But you can also apply this to Boltrics-developed pages and tables. One of many examples of Microsoft technology woven into the Boltrics industry standard.
Integrate with Office 365 programs
In addition to Business Central, you probably use other Microsoft programs. Even if you don’t use ERP. For example, Word, PowerPoint, and Excel are programs you use every day. And if you use Boltrics’ 3PL Dynamics – and therefore Microsoft Business Central – you can easily import and export data to and from these programs. For example, you can export analysis lists from your logistics software to Excel to gain greater insight into your warehouse activities, inventory and throughput.
With the click of a button, we can export data so we can immediately see what’s coming. – Sjoerd Sijl, Customer Service Team Leader, Bakker Logistiek.

Microsoft’s goal? To make Business Central the world’s best and most secure ERP solution for small and midsize businesses. And that means a lot of work on system security. As a user of Boltrics’ 3PL Dynamics, you are at the forefront of all developments in this area. The platform is continuously fed with the latest technologies and requirements to secure your systems. This way, you no longer have to worry about it and can focus on your core business: relieving your customers of their logistics activities.
