Microsoft Dynamics® NAV

If you are looking for a way to integrate all of the key departments within your organisation, then you need to look at an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution. ERP is essential to ensuring that your key departments and their activities are aligned and that essential information is available to those that need it, when they need it.

With an aggressive product roadmap, you can be assured of leading technology advances. Read our guide to what’s new to Dynamics NAV in 2016.

Implementing Microsoft Dynamics NAV, offers a number of key benefits to your business:

  • Transparency of essential data across key departments and functions
  • A 360 degree view of your business and the ability to make decisions based on accurate, real time data
  • Automation of key business processes, increasing efficiency
  • Putting the customer at the centre of your business
  • Advanced interactive reporting across your key departments

Microsoft Dynamics NAV for Sales and Marketing

Sales and marketing are often seen as separate to other key areas of the organisation, they are seen as more of a front office function and so often operate using different systems, such as Microsoft Dynamics CRM. However, by involving sales and marketing in your ERP solution, the department, and your business, will benefit in a number of ways, including the opportunity to;

  • Align sales and marketing with each other and with the rest of the organisation, such as warehouse management, finance, human resources, and manufacturing
  • Access and utilise key real time data on stock levels, supply and demand, customer behaviour and expectations, and key customer feedback

Microsoft Dynamics NAV for Finance

One of the key requirements of finance departments in all organisations is accurate and up to date information, something that can sometimes be difficult to come by when sourcing data from various parts of the company. With Microsoft Dynamics NAV your finance department will have instant access to all of the data that they need, as and when they need it. The transparency of data allowed via Microsoft’s dedicated ERP solution means;

  • Access to accurate, real time data
  • Increased efficiencies through easier and more accurate bookkeeping, data gathering, and reporting
  • The ability to monitor financial performance, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

Microsoft Dynamics NAV for Supply Chain Management

If part of your business operation involves the supply and shipping of products to your clients, you need to ensure that you have the proper processes in place. Implementing a dedicated ERP solution, such as Microsoft Dynamics NAV, as the backbone to your supply chain management can offer a number of key benefits;

  • Automate and manage key business processes, from stock management, to shipping to customers and managing returns, in a single system
  • Analyse and capitalise on customer data, identify and pursue market opportunities
  • Align your activities with other key operational departments such as sales and marketing and manufacturing

Microsoft Dynamics NAV for Human Resources

The most important part of your business, aside from your customers, is your people. The Human Resources department are tasked with not only managing one of the organisation’s most important assets, but ensuring that the right people are employed. This now means focusing on your existing people and teams and looking for the best fit from new additions. Psychometric testing, new interviewing techniques, and new methods of attracting the right employees are needed.

The systems used by Human Resources used to be kept separate because of the sensitive nature of data held. However, it has been recognised that linking key information about the workforce with other critical data sets is advantageous.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV offers a number of key benefits to the HR department

  • Ability to store, report on, and analyse employee information in line with organisational activity
  • Control over data access so that relevant data can be shared with line managers and departmental heads
  • Alignment of organisational needs with best fit for the job and the department
  • Self-service access to relevant employee data so that it can be updated directly, saving the HR department time
  • Automation of communication from the HR department to employees, increasing efficiency

Microsoft Dynamics NAV for Manufacturing

ERP solutions have really come into their own when it comes to the benefits offered to organisations involved in manufacturing products. The entire process, from ordering and receipt of materials, to the storage and shipment of stock to clients or the rest of the supply chain, can all be handled in a single system.

  • Automate key processes and increase efficiency throughout the manufacturing process
  • Align key departmental requirements, from stock and warehouse management, to shipping and finance
  • Offer a 360 degree view of the entire manufacturing process and use key data to identify areas for improvement
  • Transparency of data offers key insights to other departments, such as sales and marketing, so that they can capitalise on opportunities.

"Microsoft Dynamics NAV has been amazing - it is suited to our business start up and it continues to suit us still. Our thanks go to Tisski for advising us to go with a Microsoft product to fulfil our ERP requirements right from the start, because we haven't had to deal with a potentially costly and disruptive new system at all during this time. It's also a credit to Tisski that I have been able to deal with the same Consultants from day one right through to today."

− Gordon Lauder, Central Foods

"Microsoft Dynamics NAV Specialists.

We chose Tisski, because the project director had an accountancy background and really understood our requirements.
