October is off to a great start with the launch of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013. This has been a highly-anticipated month with the upcoming User Group events in Seattle and I hope this technology release gives a surge of energy to the momentum and excitement building up in the community.
As for the NAV 2013 launch, Paul White, Senior Director – ERP Product Management at Microsoft, announced the availability yesterday on the Microsoft Dynamics ERP "The Edge" Blog and the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Team Blog:
"I’m pleased to announce that Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 is now available!
With deep investments in new capabilities and improvements across all areas of the product, this is the most significant release yet in the history of Microsoft Dynamics NAV. The feedback from our early adopter customers and partners has been really positive, and we couldn’t be more excited about getting this product out into the market and putting it to work in your businesses.
With this release, we’ve focused on building what we’ve come to call “a business solution from Microsoft.” By this we mean a solution that combines comprehensive ERP capabilities for small and midsize businesses together with a simple, intuitive user experience, insightful business intelligence and reporting tools and deep ties into Microsoft’s portfolio of products. The result is an ERP solution that is easy to use, works seamlessly with your existing productivity tools, and is quick and cost-effective to implement.
We’ve seen some great outcomes from customers already up and running with the new product. For example, Flemming Warrer Jensen, Managing Director of Dixie, a fashion accessory company in Denmark, reports that “With Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 all in all, our inventory management has become 20% more effective. Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 has been optimal in helping us to streamline processes – and using the time gained on customers.”
We’ve also done a lot of work with Microsoft Dynamics NAV to give you the power of choice. Choice about which client, device or browser your people use to connect with the system – and choice about where and how you deploy it – whether that is on-premises or in the cloud...” Read Complete Post on Microsoft Dynamics ERP "The Edge" Blog
