Microsoft Dynamics NAV for Education

The Dynamics NAV Education Suite module from Open Door Technology is a fully integrated Human Resources, Payroll, and Financials solution for K-12 administration and secondary education. It enables school organizations to effectively manage the business component of education and benefit from Microsoft’s vision for e-Business and e-Learning in the 21st century.

Microsoft is redefining the paradigms found in application software by building on the strengths of its Back Office and Front Office solutions, including Office365, to forge a new standard for business and education applications. The Education Suite combines the best of these products with Microsoft Dynamics NAV, one of the Microsoft Business Solutions applications. Its Microsoft foundation allows the Education Suite to leverage other Microsoft offerings including SharePoint, Class Server, Web Portal Services, SQL Server, Office, and Mobile Solutions for both tablets and smartphones.  The Microsoft technology standards allow the system to be easily configured to connect to third party “best of breed” of products such as student information systems.  The choice of Microsoft Dynamics NAV offers unparalleled flexibility with the ability to readily configure and customize, if necessary.

For organizations looking for a financial solution only for K-12 administration, on top of the standard Microsoft Dynamics NAV functionality, the system offers fund accounting, encumbrance and commitment accounting, and batch processing for accounts payable.  The advanced human resource and payroll modules offer a rules-based payroll system with employee groups, positions, multiple employers, and many other features.  An advanced budgeting module is available for position-based budgeting.

Advantages from the K-12 Education Suite include:

  • Cloud or in-house – Run the system in the cloud, with or without Office365, or in-house.
  • Reduce costs – Reduce training and support effort and costs through a consistent and intuitive Windows standard interface.
