We are well into the last quarter of 2016 and there still are ERP users who feel that NAV 2016 does not meet their business requirements. Have they really explored NAV 2016 inside-out to make such a blatant statement? Or did they just have an overview of the features and feel confident to declare that Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 is not for them.
Given below are some of the offerings of Microsoft Dynamics Navision 2016 which should make organizations reconsider their decision of writing it off and perhaps start pondering an upgrade or either a re-implementation for that matter?
Whats New In NAV 2016 is the question most ERP users have. Mentioned below are details regarding new currency updates, workflows and deferral functionalities that will help answer this.
- The most popular ERP Software for Small Business enterprises has categorically been designed for cloud users. It accounts for an easy deployment on cloud. This means that it will be easy to further upgrade NAV 2016 to newer versions. It also means that business users will be able to add seats as their business grows further.
- It is deployable on Microsoft Azure. This means that organizations using NAV 2016 give to their workforce a standard user-experience across all devices, which are tablet, desktop and phone.
- Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 offers smooth integrations with MS Dynamics CRM, Office 365 and Power BI. In fact, the first of the 3 should be music to the ears of Microsoft ERP users, as customer information is available in NAV and invoices are available in CRM. The best is that there is no need to switch applications. Integration with power BI means that you get visual analytics of all your business data in one place.
- End users get to work smarter with workflows. Workflows in NAV 2016 allow end users to implement steps related to approvals and notifications and automations to put into place business processes that follow industry standard requirements.
- MS Dynamics Navision 2016 is well supported by the Microsoft Dynamics Partner Network which is not the case with older versions, where mainstream support ends after a few years.
- There are incredible Financial Management capabilities in the ERP as well, such as vendor prepayment journals; deferrals for general journals, sales and purchasing; posting preview and currency exchange service. Vendor prepayment journals provide a preview of payment information for a payment journal. Deferrals for general journals, sales and purchasing allow end users to defer revenues and expenses to relevant accounting periods. Posting previews helps view the impact that posting the document has against all affected ledgers prior to posting.
The deal is pretty simple. Either have an upgrade done or simply get Dynamics NAV re-implemented.
Upgrade if you use NAV 2013 or a version later, have minimal customizations and need to maintain your sales history and all of your data tables.
Have NAV Re-implemented if you are using NAV 2009 or perhaps something older, have a lot of software features that are not there in use and suffer from poor quality data and need to clean it up.
