3. ANALYZE YOUR BUSINESS BETTER:
Microsoft Dynamics NAV Enterprise System has so many ways to analyze and look at your business that you will always be able to find what you are looking for.
Step One: Back to the Role Tailored Client (RTC) as explained above. Within the RTC you can at a glance view charts and reports of information pertinent to your role in the company. For example as below you can see charts of sales, gross profit, top clients, and many Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s), etc. This valuable information is all available at a glance. You can also drill down on each chart to see much more detail. How great is that?
Step Two: Since NAV has such an open architecture and leverages Microsoft SQL Server the number of tools available are many. NAV has a full blown reporting system and tools. You can use these tools to change existing reports and design your own reports. These reports are then available out of the box to export to MS Excel, MS Word, PDF and more. You can also use your favorite tools such as excel to attach to your data and either 1) extract it, 2) view it or 3) extract it, update it and then push it back into NAV. Since NAV is a Microsoft solution it gets along with many other Microsoft solutions better than any other solution does. Did someone say SharePoint? Yes, you can publish reports with MS SQL reporting services to web sites OR right to SharePoint so that they can be shared with others.
Step Three: As if the first two were not enough for you. Available for NAV is a full blown data warehouse and reporting solution. This tool is delivered with many standard cubes right out of the box for you to play with. With these cubes come reports that you can view, share, publish, and display on a web site.
Another advantage to this reporting tool is that you can turn your users loose on it and have them go nuts creating their own reports just how they want them. They can’t break it! Of course you can limit what data they can and cannot see. You don’t want the janitor creating his or her own financial reports.
This reduces the need for the IT staff to have to create every report that an end user may need. Your team can then move on to more exciting IT projects that make you money. That is a great thing, right?
