What is Microsoft Dynamics NAV?

Microsoft Dynamics NAV is a versatile and robust Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software platform which provides the tools for your employees to be more effective in their various defined roles across your entire company. The system is fast to implement, easy to configure and simple to use which ensures the installation has a limited impact on the day to day running of your business.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV is much more than just a finance package, it is a complete business management solution that manages your entire company in one unified and functional system. All of the vital operational areas within a company are linked and supported with a range of tools and features to make each role in each department more efficient.

With finance at the core of the solution, implement only the areas of the system that you need to use. As you grow you can implement the other areas as you require them. 

Dynamics NAV has modules to cover every area of a business. We will implement only the areas that you require and then implement further functionality as your business requires it. Dynamics NAV is designed to help your company grow seamlessly. 

The system is easy to customise and can be tailored to fit exactly how your business works. You get a solution to your business management needs that perfectly fits the scope of your business, exactly as you need it. Dynamics NAV has its own development environment with rules on how to develop the system to allow customisations that are easily supported and upgraded. One of our directors is also one of the leading and most experienced developers of NAV in the industry, regularly providing training to other partners. 

Dynamics NAV integrates all of your crucial business applications together showing a notable increase in productivity and ensuring your business remains competitive. Enter your data once and it will be available around the business as required.

How to Buy Dynamics NAV

Dynamics NAV is available only through approved NAV partners such as Dynamics Consultants. Projects involve purchasing licences and setting up the system to suit your requirements. We can be flexible on your requirements, however typically the steps involved to choosing NAV include:

Initial discussion of requirements

Speak to one of our expert Business Partnership team to discuss your overall business requirements and to get an idea of what NAV can do for you. We can typically give you a ballpark figure and discuss whether your budget is in line with the requirements. 

Meeting and Demo

After some discussions of what you need to see, our business partnership team will be able to provide you with a demonstration of the products, from look and feel to specific areas of the system. We will typically get to know enough of your requirements after this to provide you with a budgetary quotation.

Functional Requirements Investigation

This is a paid for exercise to determine the exact requirements of the business, which will typically take from a couple of days to a week. We will then write a Functional Requirements Document (FRD) which will be applicable to your business and useful to any supplier should you choose another solution. We will also highlight the gaps in the standard NAV functionality, if any, and provide information of development or third party solutions to meet these requirements. Based on this we will be able to provide you with a full quotation for your requirements. 

Our Services

With any project, it is the quality of work and the experience of those providing it that makes the difference between a successful implementation and a failed project. Dynamics Consultants subscribe to Microsoft's proven methodology for implementing a system.
