Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (formerly Dynamics NAV)

It addresses well some integration and connectivity issues with other software and adapted technologies: formulation and manufacturing batching software, scanners and bar codes, inventory, financials, emailing of invoices and statement, sales and purchasing... etc. I believe it to be better suited to a medium to large company. Not as simple and seamless as we expected for migrating from another Microsoft Dynamics software product (we moved from GP to NAV). Our staff is going through a tougher time than we thought to learn some procedures. Normal growing pains?!

Pros

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (formerly Dynamics NAV)

  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV is highly customizable. Many ERP systems provide similar functionality, however, they can be difficult (or costly) to customize to meet your companies' specific needs.
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV has a relatively-low cost of entry, for its feature set. Other similar ERP systems, can cost substantially more.
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV provides a fully-integrated system, for running your business. With it, there is no need to have separate warehouse, EDI or accounting systems, for example. Everything is in one place and access to the information, can be restricted by user role.
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV allows you to easily "navigate" or "drill-down" into the underlying data, for things such as inventory or customer balance. There is no need to launch a separate window or form, to find related information,
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV has extensive filtering capabilities, which allows you to look at only the data you are interested in seeing.

We've already decided to continue using this software. It is too expensive for us to upgrade so we made a workaround by using the virtual computer with Windows XP installed on it. We did research replacing this software, but it was a better financial decision to keep what we had instead

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (formerly Dynamics NAV)

Dynamics NAV blows the doors off of Accpac in breadth, scalability and performance. If you're looking for full functionality for a small to medium sized business that can scale as you grow with solid performance and data integrity, then Dynamics NAV is the right solution for you. Be sure to partner with a reputable solution provider. Making sure Dynamics NAV is set up correctly before you go live is essential
