Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (formerly Dynamics NAV)

We're a manufacturing company with multiple sales umbrella companies. We use Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central to place the order to the manufacturing facility, receive parts required to completed manufacturing and keep track of all accounting GL/AP/AR.

We enter PO's after we sell to the client by the sales department admin, then the manufacturing admin does the requisition, the procurement department keeps track of all the parts orders to ensure we can complete the building of the equipment by the required time promised to the client, and the accounting keeps track of all income, expenses and other costs. It helps us streamline our procedures and ensure that all departments see the big picture of what is happening in the company.
  • Lot/Serial tracking, due to our parts being imported worldwide, and in order to ship to clients and clear customs, this helps a lot.
  • Reporting in the platform, this helps us a lot in our weekly management meetings so everyone can help present and make sure everyone is aware.
  • Getting information from the old NAV, if you're transitioning not everything is easily available.
  • Some of the 3rd party software we use are not integrated or required customization which added to the cost.
  • We're able to keep better track of key parts that are crucial to our manufacturing process, since they are imported. Which means we meet our deadlines, that means happy clients.
  • Due to the streamlined process, the reporting is more consistent and our review meetings are more productive.
Since we required a lot of our employees to be mobile the use of the app makes it very convenient to make sure that everyone gets the admin side of their work completed in a timely matter. Also, since we have been using Office 365 for 3 years it was nice to have a platform that integrated into that.
