Microsoft Dynamics NAV is a complete ERP solution with a difference

Originally released in 1984 and continually updated over the years, Microsoft Dynamics® NAV has established itself as a choice for mid-sized organizations looking for a complete enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that is fast to implement, easy to configure, and simple to use.

After introducing Navision into North America in the late 1990’s, Navision US and Navision Canada experienced significant sales success.  Its exceptional design and performance led Microsoft to purchase the product in 2002 and eventually rename it to Dynamics NAV.  Today, simplicity continues to beat at the heart of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, and its state-of-the-art functionality covers everything you need to run and grow a successful business.

Our company began selling Navision in 2000 primarily in the province of Alberta to replace another product line that did not effectively make the transition into the Windows world.  We found that when we presented Navision, Calgary based organizations recognized the flexibility of the solution and often implemented it into many differing business units within the corporate group.  Differences in the market places meant that when we recommended Navision Edmonton organizations saw its potential for streamlining supply chain, including manufacturing.  As our company grew and the product name changed to Dynamics NAV, Canada became our marketplace.  We now have customers from one end of the country to the other and have moved into the United States.

More than 2 million users and 100,000 companies use Microsoft Dynamics NAV to simplify and streamline their highly specialized business processes — and today it is available in more than 42 country versions.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV provides companies and their people with industry-specific functionality that’s relevant to the local needs of their regions of operation, even for the most highly-specialized industries and organizations.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV is easy to use and offers rapid adaptability and simplified customization enabling companies to easily add functionality, custom applications and online business capabilities. With Microsoft Dynamics NAV, employees can become more effective and the company more competitive.

One complete ERP solution

Microsoft Dynamics NAV collects your business’s functions into one integrated system. With close visual and functional ties to Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office, it’s easy to learn, simple to use, and quick to implement.

With integrated financial, manufacturing, supply chain management, sales and marketing, project management, human resources and services management information from across your organization stored in a centralized database, your people can work quickly and effectively — helping to drive your business forward.

Greater simplicity for greater productivity

In everyday life, it can be difficult to simplify and organize tasks, remove clutter, and put information where you can get to it easily and quickly. That’s exactly what Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 does to your office workstation.

It hides 90% of the features you don’t need to see, yet it promotes the actions and information that you do need, leaving you with an uncluttered window and an overview of upcoming tasks — helping you prioritize your tasks, and keeping your work productive, stimulating, and fun.

RoleTailored home pages — called Role Centers — make it easy for people to view their work priorities and access the information and tasks they need for their specific job, not just anyone’s job.

The result? An innovative solution that frees employees and business leaders to direct their talents and skills towards business success.

Role Centers in Microsoft Dynamics NAV help people in job roles ranging from the president, to accounting manager, to sales manager, to warehouse worker gain access to the full scope of the tasks, information and reports they need in a single view.

Deep integration across Microsoft Dynamics NAV with familiar programs such as Microsoft Office Excel and Windows SharePoint Services makes it easy to communicate and collaborate effectively, and share information — without having to juggle applications.

Making smart decisions

Microsoft Dynamics NAV enables every individual in your company to turn hunches into genuine insight, and insight into decisions.

With access to real-time data and a wide range of analytical and reporting tools — including graphical displays, online analytical processing (OLAP) cubes and Web-based delivery options — people can make informed, confident decisions that help drive real business success.

Meet changing business needs without disrupting your operations or your IT budget — and make the most of your current IT investments.  Microsoft Dynamics NAV provides the flexibility to set up your system for today’s business requirements, as well as a reliable platform for change and growth.

Security features enable you to configure the system to control who can access what; built-in tools and the open architecture enable Microsoft partners to adapt the foundation to meet your specific needs — now and in the future.  Moreover, the object-oriented development environment and compact source code simplifies system maintenance and connecting to other systems.
