Microsoft Dynamics NAV: ERP for the rest of us

Posted In Technology Reviews - By Techtiplib on Tuesday, May 6th, 2014 With No Comments »

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) has a long pedigree in helping businesses better manage their data and make better decisions based on more accurate information. Over the years ERP solutions have developed a reputation as being better suited to larger corporations, but Microsoft Dynamics NAV now brings all the benefits of ERP to more modestly sized organisations. Microsoft Dynamics NAV is designed specifically for small to medium enterprises (SMEs) and is already used by almost 100,000 businesses across the world. It has been designed from the ground up to be easy to deploy and easy to use, with comprehensive ‘out-of-the-box’ capabilities alongside the ability to completely customise the solution to specific needs.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV: ERP for the rest of us

A stable, secure and flexible business platform

Microsoft Dynamics NAV benefits from the levels of investment and stability that only the world’s biggest software company can provide. It also offers specific industry solutions designed with the benefit of many years of relevant sector experience. Such industry niches include manufacturing, distribution and wholesale, and services and not for profit organisations. The Microsoft Dynamics NAV solution is also capable of being easily tailored to suit the needs of more specialist industries, such as construction, engineering, healthcare, charities, pharmaceuticals and hire companies.

A familiar user interface

Microsoft Dynamics NAV allows any organisation to integrate diverse data and store business information in a centralised, easily managed resource. This reduces the chances of error and avoids wastage and confusion due to duplication of data. It also allows organisations to automate processes, improve communication and efficiently allocate tasks. The familiar and easy to use look and feel of Microsoft Dynamics NAV also helps to improve productivity and achieve more in shorter timescales, presenting the same Microsoft interface that users work with in their office tools. Such employees are also empowered by the flexible, but powerful reporting and business analytics features, which present them with easily understood and relevant information at the touch of a button. 

Understanding organisational roles

A large factor in the management of information in any ERP system is the ability to understand each person’s role and present them with the information that is relevant to that role. Microsoft Dynamics NAV makes sure that everyone in the organisation has access to the business information that they need to be more effective in their job. This ability to present tailored views of information reflects the way organisations work and helps Microsoft Dynamics NAV fit seamlessly into any company.

Total flexibility in deployment

Microsoft Dynamics NAV can be deployed rapidly, addressing your current requirements while being able to adapt easily to any future changes. The system can be set up initially for use with only a few users. This can be achieved via a hosted solution, where a subscription model can be the most effective way for small organisations to realise the benefits of the system. Any new users can be added as and when needed, along with additional modules and functionality. Microsoft Dynamics NAV also integrates easily with popular desktop products such as Microsoft Office365.
