Welcome to the Technology posts.

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. 

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Did you know that the average office worker in the UK is thought to lose up to 21 days every year thanks to slow, outdated technology that’s just not fit for purpose anymore?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.

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.

Business Management Solutions are the tool of choice, and in this blog post we’ll look at why Microsoft Dynamics NAV is the perfect solution for pharmaceutical companies.

Microsoft Dynamics Business Central has landed. At the beginning of April Microsoft debuted the release of their sole product line, Microsoft D365 Business Central.

At Microsoft HQ, the winds are ever-changing, and over recent months it feels like there have been more additions to their products than ever.

Little did we all know that Tenerife is not just an island in the Canaries!

If you’ve been following Microsoft announcements in the past few months, you’ll have heard about the elusive new project due for release imminently, codenamed “Tenerife”, and if you haven’t, where have you been!

Microsoft has a habit of codenaming all their upcoming Dynamics projects after islands, and this hot project has got the Microsoft community talking.
