Microsoft Dynamics NAV



Microsoft Dynamics NAV is an enterprise resource planning (ERP) software product from Microsoft. The product is part of the Microsoft Dynamics family, and intended to assist with finance, manufacturing, customer relationship management, supply chains, analytics and electronic commerce for small and medium-sized enterprises. Value-added resellers (VAR)s can have full access to the business logic source code.

Features
Before NAV 2013, Microsoft Dynamics NAV gave administrators the option of using either a native database server or Microsoft SQL Server, as the DBMS. SQL Server, the industry standard, is now the exclusive database option for NAV. Retiring the old "Native database" has given way to long awaited improvements in reducing/eliminating database locking, which can occur when hundreds or thousands of users are using the same data at once.

Document reporting in NAV 2013 is based on the RDLC 2008 format (RDLC 2010 in NAV 2013 R2). Reports are edited partly in the NAV Development Environment and Visual Studio. NAV 2013 R2 includes a free report editor. Any reports will render in either Screen preview, PDF, Word or Excel formats, depending on the users needs.
