On September 1st, Microsoft announced the release of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 R2 in October. Coupled with the expected release of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013, October plans to be a busy month for Microsoft and their Dynamics partners. Here’s a few ways NAV is expected to upgrade support for their customers:
- Great interoperability with Office 365 breaks down the walls between business data and how people get work done. Microsoft Dynamics NAV can now be deployed as an application to on-premises and cloud-based SharePoint sites, with single sign on and a consistent look and feel across the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client and Office 365. Deeper data integration capabilities will enable customers to extend Microsoft Dynamics NAV business processes with SharePoint workflows and Web parts, and take full advantage of Microsoft Excel and the Excel Web App.
- Enhanced cash management capabilities will help customers better manage risk and drive business growth with features such as automatic and manual payment processing, bank reconciliation tools, and support for SEPA direct debit and credit transfer.
- Powerful usability enhancements across both the Web and desktop clients make Microsoft Dynamics NAV even simpler to use and faster to deploy. A restyled user experience aligned with Office 365 makes it even easier for people to access, view and edit business data and processes.
NAV 2013 R2 will support multitenant deployments and come with a variety of tools to lower costs and improve service for customers. Right now there is no official release date, so if you’re planning to add NAV to your Dynamics repertoire, contact SBS Group to learn more.
