ERP in the UK – What is it with Microsoft Dynamics NAV?


Email | Print

Microsoft Dynamics NAV has a strong and growing presence in the UK. Over the past few months, and particularly since last Novembers’ major product enhancement, the business requirements of an increasing number of our clients have pointed towards them Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

So why is this?

In the UK, the number of organisations deploying Microsoft Dynamics NAV is growing, and growing rapidly. We’re seeing more and more organisations deploy the product as their first main ERP solution, as well as seeing organisations move to it from other ERP products or applications developed in-house. It’s easy to use, fits in well with business processes, is flexible, cost-effective, has over 2000 add-on products available and is strong in many verticals.

There are a high number of business partners throughout the UK that are fully accredited, qualified, and experienced in deploying Microsoft Dynamics NAV. So, you can be pretty certain there’s one near you or one that specialises in your vertical or business sector. And for UK organisations that do business with, or have branches or locations in the EU, using Microsoft Dynamics NAV for financial management makes sense as the product has multi-currency and multi-language functionality. This reduces the complexity of transactions with suppliers, customers, or partners in different countries within the EU (or globally). Processes can also be localised, for example, to work using local tax rules.

November 2010’s update, Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2, delivered a range of enhancements to the product that added to its appeal to UK businesses. These included built-in integration with Microsoft Dynamics CRM, role-tailored interface access for remote or roaming users, and availability of the product as a true software-as-a-service (SaaS) or cloud solution. The update also added improvements to the business intelligence features of Microsoft Dynamics NAV with dashboards and data visualization. These enhancements all add towards making the product a good fit for a wide range of small and medium sized organisations looking to drive operational gains through ERP software.

Microsoft is committed to continuously developing and supporting its ERP solutions and Microsoft Dynamics NAV has a clearly defined, long-term roadmap. This is a factor often cited as a key point in swaying the ERP decision towards Microsoft Dynamics NAV. What this means for UK companies investing in the product is that they know their investment will be secure for many years ahead.

Concentrix is a ‘product agnostic’ ERP solutions provider. In other words, we look at our clients’ business needs and processes, and recommend the ERP solution we feel most suited to their requirements. We’re finding that Microsoft Dynamics NAV is the recommended ERP solution more and more frequently.
