Microsoft releases Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 ERP for SMBs

Microsoft has announced the general availability of its ERP solution, Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016, for small and medium sized businesses.

Dynamics NAV 2016 provides cross platform insights for SMBs with access to cloud services, analytics on the go with mobile device support and integration with Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, and Office 365.

Built for SMBs

Dynamics NAV 2016 will help small and medium sized organizations lower costs and compete with major companies, says Microsoft.

The solution is designed to enable mobile workers by streamlining access to company data and insights through native apps on Android, iOS, and Windows. The Windows Power BI dashboard is also built in for easy access to performance data.

The latest dynamics release integrates with Microsoft’s customer relationship manager for small and midsize businesses, Microsoft Dynamics CRM online. Businesses can automate process like document management, workflow, and Optic Character Recognition (OCR) functions to reduce their use of paper transactions.

Dynamics NAV 2016 users have the option deploy the ERP solution on the Microsoft Azure SQL Database for the cloud.

Sector applications

The solution will improve overall efficiency, says Microsoft. One manufacturing company claims to have reduced order processing time by 75%. “Today, I have much happier employees. Folks can leave when they’re supposed to leave—and they’re much more productive when they’re here,” Fred Daniell, president of Kureha America LLC in his company’s customer case study.

As well as industries like manufacturing, Dynamics NAV ERP solution has also been used in public services like the education sector. One school district in the States has deployed the technology for managing processes across its schools.

“We reached a point where our aging technology simply couldn’t meet the demand for greater efficiency. We knew it was time to standardize on software that was more cost-effective to support and that offered greater flexibility,” they said.
