Microsoft recently released Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015, the next incarnation of its ERP software. This effort to continually improve their offering shows Microsoft’s commitment to helping small to medium sized businesses streamline their day-to-day operations and get the best use of their ERP system.
While Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 will feature a number of key improvements to functionality, there is very little change to the actual architecture of the software. This is a major plus as architecture upgrades can often cause major problems.
THE KEY BENEFITS
The 3 key benefits that the new Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 offers are:
What the above developments actually mean for those who are currently using Microsoft Dynamics NAV or considering implementing it for the first time are listed below:
EVEN QUICKER IMPLEMENTATION
This latest release of Microsoft Dynamic NAV will be quicker to implement than ever before, with improvements having been made to the RapidStart implementation and Upgrade methodology that was available in NAV 2013R2. This will help Microsoft Dynamics NAV partners lower the cost and reduce the time they need to move new clients onto the software and upgrade existing clients to the new version.
IMPROVED USER EXPERIENCE
Microsoft have also considered the solution's ease of use in the latest release of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015. They have delivered improvements in relation to the end user experience, allowing for faster access to business critical information. The introduction of personalised home pages lets the user have the most important data available to them in easy-to-read dashboards and Role Centers. These improvements will drastically increase productivity.
The development of Microsoft Dynamics NAV’s mobile offering further enhances the progression that this mid-market ERP system has made in recent years. Microsoft Dynamics NAV for tablets now enables small and mid-size businesses to access company data and processes wherever they are and whatever device they choose to use. Couple this with the continued focus on improved integration with Office 365 and cloud deployment on Microsoft Azure, and customers will see lower cost of ownership, increased flexibility and employee productivity; resulting in increased profits.
Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 also now offers improved document reporting and integration with Microsoft Word. This feature expansion has drastically simplified invoice design, meaning that you can use Microsoft Word to change the layout of document reports and brand invoices yourself, without the need to involve technical support.
Finally, and probably most importantly, Microsoft Dynamic NAV 2015 has increased its power to support you in making sure you get paid faster by your customers. The developments mean that you spend less time managing the whole process of debt collection, electronic payments and automated account reconciliation. The changes include:
All in all, Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 offers everything a growing business needs to effectively manage growth and to increase efficiency and profitability, but don’t take my word for it.
