Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Dynamics NAV

Calgary Foothills PCN uses NAV for all its financial needs: GL, AP, AR and payroll runs.
It is just used by our finance team to take care of our operations and administration finance and generate financial reports to auditors and boards.

Pros

  • User friendly, does not need much to train users on how to use it, enter data or generate reports.
  • Secure, it has a very secure & permission account setup.
  • Flexible and customizable for all the company needs: general accounting, A/R, A/P, Fixed Assets, and Budgeting needs.
  • Love the search tool, very powerful.

Cons

  • Reports need improvement for sure.
  • Does not integrate with other software or tools.
  • Navigation could be a challenge to some users.
  • Customization, modifications and upgrades require a 3rd party vendor to do.
  • Budget forecast and real time calculation is critical to us as non-profit organization.
Would recommend any company with many departments within to adopt the system because it helps to integrate all departments together into a single data base. Real time information helps in making critical decision within the company and helps to improve service delivery.
We are using it as a Main ERP and it runs all the tasks involved in the process of the company. We found that it can do things that our previous ERP couldn't like integrate with other Microsoft products.
Take more training to learn how to use the system. Repeat the training after 3 and 6 months.
