But what happens when the customer is live and actually using the system in their day to day operation? In addition to their daily workload, now they have to click some buttons in order to properly close?

The new ERP system is supposed to save us steps, not increase them. We, as consultants and developers, often forgets this important goal. Remembering details to close out the period in the system should be, in my opinion, be kept at a minimum none if possible. Making the system more complicated to maintain is not good for anyone. The purpose of the inventory period is to enforce the rule that no item transaction can be posted before the date on the inventory period that is closed.

I mean why would you want people to be able to back date inventory? Why Not Inventory Periods? There are 2 ways to control this in Dynamics Business Central 1. Quite simply, error messages freaks people out. I hate them and I suspect you hate them too.
