Here at NAVExperts, we’re often asked about PowerApps and their benefits when using Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

From being a business management software program to becoming an integral part of a business, ERP solutions have come a long way. 

Here at NAVExperts, we couldn’t be happier to announce our very own John Gladman is taking part in one of the biggest challenges on the planet. John, 55 has joined the incredible Team Britannia in an epic round the world, powerboat world record attempt.

When it comes to expenses, calculating and processing each employee’s expenses can be a time-consuming task. Not to mention an arduous one. Add to this the fact that it’s a task that needs attention on a regular basis and it’s no surprise that many look for a solution to make it an easier, more efficient process.

If you’re anything like the majority of businesses out there, you probably started out with the most basic or essential software that you needed at the time. Whether you’re working with an accountant or managing the finances of your business internally, having a system that can manage your data correctly is critical.

QuickBooks could arguably be described as one of the most widely known pieces of accounting software today. It’s designed to help small to medium enterprises (SME’s) manage their bills and their finances.

Here at NAV Experts, we’re proud to boast a simple and cost-effective way to revolutionise your warehouse management. Our Microsoft Distribution Management Software solution is ground-breaking software.

We’re taking a peek at the latest version of Microsoft NAV, otherwise known as Dynamics 365 Business Central. We’re excited about this new version of the incredible software and want to show you why it’s one of the best Microsoft products.

Say hello to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. This is the tried and tested SMB ERP offering and as of October 2018, found itself available in 20 countries now and growing. Since then, Business Central has brought with it, full NAV functionality to a SaaS environment. The question is, what is it exactly?

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is Microsoft’s new enterprise business planning (ERP) solution for small to medium enterprises (SME’s). Dynamic 365 Business Central however contains essentially the same functionality that we’ve already become familiar with from Microsoft Dynamic NAV; there are of course a few new differences and that’s what we’re going to be looking at today.

The latest accounting software from Microsoft is a fantastic option for businesses in all kinds of sectors. We’ve previously spoken about the advantages for pharmaceutical suppliers, distribution centres and financial services companies, to name just a few of the industries that will see their internal processes transformed by Dynamics 365 Business Central.

One of the common misconceptions of cloud-based accounting solutions is that they exist to replace your accounting team.

There are plenty of people out there who are convinced that they will need to let go of all their admin staff, bookkeepers and even their accountants as soon as they introduce a new system into their business.

Unless you’ve missed all the emails, videos, blogs and letters that have been circulating from HMRC over the last eight or nine months, you’ll almost certainly have heard about the government’s new Making Tax Digital for Business scheme (for those of you who love an abbreviation, they’re shortening this to MTDfb. Catchy, no?).

As a Microsoft Partner, we basically all do the same job, right?  Well, in theory, yes – that’s correct. But if your company of choice is letting you down, either before, during or after the implementation of your new NAV accounting software it could be time to consider switching to a new provider.

Did you know that the average office worker in the UK is thought to lose up to 21 days every year thanks to slow, outdated technology that’s just not fit for purpose anymore? That’s a pretty sobering statistic, isn’t it? And we’re pretty sure that if you dug deeper into this data, you’d find that accounting software are one of the biggest culprits when it comes to creating such a sizeable dent in productivity.

Dynamics NAV has plenty of powerful tools that can help businesses better organise their data – but we’re particularly big fans of its amazing reporting software.

We’ve put together a brief guide to the main features of Microsoft Dynamics NAV’s reporting capabilities so you can get a feel for how it might improve your own company’s data sharing processes and make your life a darn sight easier!

How can a shiny new business management system (BMS) actually make things easier for the people who keep your business afloat from day to day – your lovely employees?

What’s that?

You think you could be getting more from your ERP system?

We’re not going to argue with you. In fact, you’re probably right. Perhaps it’s time to explore what’s on offer from 365 Business Central, the latest and greatest edition of Microsoft’s awesome business management solution.

From Zoho to Sage, Quickbooks to Clearbooks, there are so many cloud accounting solutions out there that we’ve practically lost count.

Now, we’re not saying that the software from these popular providers isn’t fit for purpose. If they don’t have any specific requirements for their accounting platform, many businesses cruise along with them just fine. But as an accountant who is juggling the financial demands of all kinds of enterprises of varying sizes and scales, you may be finding that these platforms are no longer meeting the needs of your clients.

Yup, you read it right, business management software is sexy!

In this post were going to show you why automation really is making BMS sexier and how you can use it in your everyday business.

Is your organisation growing fast? Are your team struggling to stay on top of their daily tasks? It sounds like is could be time to introduce automation into the mix.

Business process automation – or BPA for short (sorry another acronym!) – involves using intelligent technology to automate the activities or services that are central to your company’s operations. You can use the ‘if-this-then-that’ methodology of BPA software to support your existing processes in sales, marketing, customer relationship management, HR and more.

We love this software so much we’re literally shouting it from the rooftops!

Efficiency is a key driver to success – especially in the retail industry, where companies are facing higher-than-ever demands from their customers and relentless competition from their rivals.

Automating your core businesses processes is a fail-safe way of maximising productivity, keeping costs down, and delivering an exceptional shopping experience to both new and existing customers.

Here’s how our business management software solution like Dynamics 365 Business Central, can help you meet the ever-evolving needs of your sector and ensure your retail enterprise remains ahead of the curve using intelligent automation technology.

 

There are rising consumer expectations within the pharmaceutical sector according to PricewaterhouseCoopers. Everything from competitors and market trends to healthcare reforms and new regulatory requirements.

The market is constantly striving for better quality products at lower prices, and pharmaceutical manufacturers have been looking for ways to reduce costs and streamline their internal processes.
