Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013, a member of Microsoft’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) products suit has now officially been released to manufacturing (RTM).
In a blog post written earlier this week, Max Beuker announced the release and wrote, “Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 is a landmark release, building on a strong product foundation to deliver new levels of customer and partner value through faster, more efficient implementations, compelling new and enhanced application functionality, and unparalleled levels of customer choice on how to deploy and access the solution”.
According to Microsoft, “Dynamics NAV 2013 has powerful and diverse new application functionality, ranging from charting to cash flow analysis to time sheet registration to assembly to expanded out-of-the-box RoleCenters to Unicode,” according to this post from the Dynamics NAV Team Blog. “The user experience innovations range from the SharePoint and web clients to end user productivity features on the rich client to improved integrations with OneNote and Excel.”
We published a close look at NAV 2013 last week, you can take a look at it again. Generally, some the notable additions are:
- improved inventory, supply management, resource management and warehouse management features;
- a “connector” to enable integration and data synchronization with Dynamics CRM (either 4.0 or 2011);
- faster implementations via RapidStart Services;
- enhancements to business intelligence and user collaboration tools; and
- the ability to accept online credit card payments.
Dynamics NAV 2013 also features a new Web client, which lets users access and interact with Dynamics NAV 2013 over a network. “The Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client does not replace the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client but complements it by enabling scenarios that are not possible with the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client,” according to Microsoft’s description.
