Is your company considering investing in an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system? Are you overwhelmed with all of the software options available? If you have done any research at all, you have probably heard of several well-known solutions – Microsoft Dynamics NAV being one of those. At first glance, many products may look similar. Each product gives businesses the capability to improve upon their processes and increase their overall efficiency. However, at a closer glance, Microsoft Dynamics NAV has several distinctive differences.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV is an enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) suite designed for small to mid-sized businesses. It’s broad functionality and industry-specific extensions make NAV the best fit solution for many industries, especially Manufacturers and distributors. Designed with an easy-to-use interface similar to the Microsoft Office suite, Microsoft Dynamics NAV improves the efficiency and productivity of business processes. NAV interacts with a variety of tools -Microsoft Office, Business Intelligence (BI) Tools and Microsoft SharePoint – in order to provide businesses with the collaboration they need throughout the system.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV’s self-service reporting and Business Intelligence capabilities allow companies to access crucial data and run the reports they need. With its strong analytical capabilities and reporting options, NAV brings customized data to individual users. In addition, NAV is designed to allow users to configure the system based upon their individual and industry needs. This configuration and customization makes NAV the more flexible of the software options.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV is the smarter solution for small to mid-sized businesses. Many companies have benefited from a Microsoft Dynamics NAV implementation. Pacific Torque, an authorized distributor/dealer for leading diesel engine and transmission manufacturers, saw significant improvements after implementing NAV. Chosen for its flexibility and integration with existing software programs, NAV turned around Pacific Torque’s business processes, helping to expand Pacific Torque’s product line and improve employee insight into all parts of the business. Microsoft Dynamics NAV’s business intelligence capabilities and data analysis functions helped Pacific Torque make better decisions and improve their overall processes. Its entire system approach and flexibility is what sets Microsoft Dynamics apart from other ERP systems.
