If you’ve been using Microsoft Dynamics NAV, no doubt you appreciate that it allowed you to move far beyond the capabilities you had with your entry-level ERP software. Being able to connect your business, people, and data across operations from finance to inventory to sales, service, and project management is what has helped you grow your business to where it is today. But perhaps now you’re looking for something more. How do you know if it’s time to transition from Microsoft Dynamics NAV to Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations?

Ask yourself and your staff:

  • Do you need more granular inventory control?
  • Does your warehouse require more sophisticated management?
  • Would you appreciate more advanced manufacturing capabilities such as shop floor control?
  • Is it time to add retail functionality?
  • Are you ready for global support for your growing business?

If any of these features sound appealing and even necessary for the needs of your growing business, you ought to evaluate Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations. Moving from Dynamics NAV to Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations is a logical technology step that will allow you to enhance and streamline your business while reducing dependence on expensive hardware and customizations. Make major improvements to your business practices without starting over from scratch.

Ensure a smooth transition

If you have decided to move to Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, there are things we can do to make the transition easier. Western Computer has a solid methodology to guide you to the finish line while making sure nothing gets overlooked. A primary step that contributes to the success of our installations is an in-depth review of your current business processes. Since it is usually better to modify and improve your current processes to fit the software rather than to modifying the system to match your current processes, we’ll work with your team to map out how each process will be performed in your new solution.  By understanding how your business operates now, we’ll be better able to show you how your processes can be adapted to Dynamics 365 without major modifications.  Your team will have an opportunity to see how the robust features off Dynamics 365 can actually make their work easier and more efficient.

Fit/Gap Analysis

With the up-front review of your current processes, we can identify which of your processes “fit” the capabilities of the system and any areas where there are “gaps” that need to be addressed. Sidestepping this important step may mean that you don’t get all you could from your new solution.

At Western Computer, we’re dedicated to helping you get the most value from your transition to Microsoft Dynamics 365.  With a large team of experts in both Dynamics NAV and Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Western Computer is well positioned to help you evaluate the potential of making the change and then helping you with a smooth transition.

  1. Just a thought on this: switching from Navision to Dynamics365 is just a new project as switching to any other ERP.
