4 New Dynamics NAV 2017 Features You’ll Actually Love
Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 features many improvements in functionality from Office 365 integration to finance enhancements. Let’s review some of the exciting benefits to explore when considering an upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017.
Office 365 Experience
dynamics nav 2017 features in office 365In the 2017 version, Dynamics NAV works seamlessly with Office 365, which means you can easily create customers, vendors, quotes, and invoices, all without leaving Outlook. Sounds simple enough, but this seamless experience means that you can save time, increase accuracy, and offer your customers an improved experience. Watch this short video to see the integration in action.
With effortless navigation between your Dynamics NAV data and your Office tools – for example, Outlook, Microsoft Bookings, or Excel, you can easily manage business interactions with your customers and vendors without performing double data entry across your various productivity tools.
Native Integration with Dynamics 365 (CRM)
With previous versions of NAV, users were working extra-hard to maintain business logic and information across both Dynamics NAV and CRM. The process was time-consuming and inefficient. Now, with native integration, users can choose to work within the system they prefer – in real-time, with complete access to customer information and processing reports, without manually transferring data.
Real-time synchronization between CRM and NAV also benefits information sharing between the two platforms. You can keep prices and items updated in Dynamics CRM, using the mapping and synchronization for currencies, units of measure, items, and resources – creating a Dynamics NAV pricelist within Dynamics CRM. Users can make better business decisions, develop stronger customer engagement through CRM tools and stay on top of order processing and financials with NAV. By synthesizing these resources the user’s lead-to-cash process becomes more efficient and effective and a fuller picture of customer engagement becomes available.
The new Dynamics NAV 2017 features in finance make it easier for your customers to pay invoices online by including hyperlinks to payment services, such as PayPal. You can even provide PayPal Standards payment links in invoices, supporting multiple ways of accepting payments, including credit cards and PayPal accounts.
