Why Microsoft Dynamics NAV is right for your business
New capabilities in Microsoft Dynamics NAV include
In Office 365 experience: Stay connected with all the parts of your business. Dynamics NAV works seamlessly with Office 365, which means you can easily manage business interactions with your customers and vendors directly within Outlook. Navigate effortlessly between your Dynamics NAV data and your Office tools – for example, Outlook, Microsoft Bookings, or Excel. The improved compatibility enables you to easily create customers, vendors, quotes, and invoices, all without leaving Outlook.
Faster setup and configuration: Get up and running faster. Save time and avoid unnecessary manual tasks with the assisted setup wizard that helps you import data, set up integration with Office 365, and enjoy a simplified setup experience, with predefined setup data and limited customer interaction. Use the assisted setup feature to guide you through setup scenarios – simplifying and streamlining your tasks. For example, follow wizards to set up workflows for approvals, or set the fiscal year.
Works natively with Dynamics CRM: Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 continues to streamline your Microsoft Dynamics CRM experience and enhance the process of integrating to Dynamics CRM online. Use a new wizard to guide you through the setup process, which enables seamless coupling of Dynamics CRM records with Dynamics NAV 2017 records. The Dynamics NAV Integration Solution on the CRM side is automatically deployed through the wizard. Be confident that your data is synchronised and up to date. You can keep prices and items updated in Dynamics CRM, using the mapping and synchronisation for currencies, units of measure, items, and resources – creating a Dynamics NAV price list within Dynamics CRM.
Cortana Intelligence: Augment your users’ experience, customise responses, and drive appropriate actions with intelligent agents. Enable your solutions to see, hear, speak, and interpret the world around you. Built-in Cortana Intelligence takes advantage of historical data and improves your insights into your predicted sales, helping you manage your stock and respond to your customers. Based on the forecast, the Sales and Inventory extension helps create replenishment requests for vendors, saving you time. You can be confident that you are working with the best predictions, because the Cortana Intelligence uses different machine learning algorithms and compares the results, returning predications with the highest quality.
E-everything: Make it easier for your customers to pay your invoices online by including hyperlinks to payment services, such as PayPal. Even provide PayPal Standards payment links in invoices, supporting multiple ways of accepting payments, including credit cards and PayPal accounts. You can continue to make use of optical character recognition (OCR), to help you track the items that you get in. Dynamics NAV now enables you to extract the lines of an invoice and you can visually verify the information, training the OCR system online, using the Lexmark invoice capture service.
Embedded Power BI: Continuing the powerful integration, you can now use embedded Power BI to easily create insightful charts and reports, and then make them available within your Dynamics NAV 2017 role centre. Keep people informed with easy-to-share reports including key performance indicators (KPIs), inventory, sales and order status. Empower users to create self-serve reports from trusted data source for faster, more informed decision-making
Mobile Experience: Tablet and touch-optimized user experience enabling SMB customers to access their company data and processes regardless of location or what device they choose to use. With this release, new Microsoft Dynamics NAV tablet applications are available now from the Windows, Apple, and Google app stores.
Enhanced user experience: Continuing the significant improvements to simplicity, productivity, and performance, Dynamics NAV 2017 enhances your experience even further. You can accomplish even more in your browser-based interface. For example, switch views to see and identify your list of records, including seeing picture thumbnails in different sizes, and use wizards to learn new concepts or simplify data entry. In the Web Client, you can also use popular shortcuts; for example, press Escape to instantly exit a page, or F5 to refresh the latest data in your browser, without fully reloading the page. Use advanced functionality by following non-intrusive, intelligent, in-application notifications, which guide you through relevant processes according to the context you are working in. These new types of notifications help even untrained users carry out advanced tasks, while the unobtrusive design does not prevent you from carrying on with your work. In addition, you can get exactly the functionality you need because partners can build attractive notifications with context-specific actions. Working with Jobs is now more straightforward, helping you manage projects more easily and get more visibility into the details. Set up jobs and enter time sheets using the new Jobs setup wizard and quickly access common tasks, new charts, and a new My Jobs list using the updated Project Manager role centre
