Can a paperless office become a reality?

When I first started work, the internet was in it’s infancy, laptops had black and white screens and computing had just reached the stage where it was widely affordable through-out the workplace.  

As a result, people were heralding the imminent arrival of the paperless office (and have been ever since), the effect however was quite the opposite.

Far from achieving the paperless office, cheap computers and printers made it easier than ever before to produce large volumes of printing with HP Laserjets spewing out acres of forests across the planet.  Emails were being printed so that they could be read and disposed of, invoices were being printed in triplicate so that sales could have a copy, accounts could have a copy and another copy could be folded up and posted to the customer and endless amounts of scrap paper was produced due to accidental prints or printer malfunction.   In addition to the printing costs, storage and disposal costs have also spiralled,

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5 Mainstream Support ended on the 10th April 2012

It's not all bad news! 

Extended Support for NAV 5 will continue until 11 April 2017.

How does this affect you?

If you are using NAV 2009 SP1 or newer then it probably doesn’t, otherwise you might want to consider an upgrade if you can answer yes to any of the following:

    • Do you need to be on a version that is on Mainstream support?
    • Are you looking to upgrade other systems that integrate with NAV that may require an update to NAV? (i.e. Windows, SQL Server, Office, CRM etc.)
    • Is there functionality in the latest version of NAV which could benefit your company?
    • Do you have an issue that is fixed in the latest version of NAV?

Do you need to upgrade to the latest version of NAV?

No. Dynamics NAV Partners will support older versions of NAV, but you do run the risk that a fix to the client software may not be possible although you may sometimes be able to do a client only upgrade to solve some compatibility issues.

Dynamics NAV 2013 - Preview Part 1

As the new version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV , NAV 2013, is due for release in October 2012, we thought you would like to know a bit of information about the update.

The release will enhance Microsoft Dynamics NAV by including:

Deployment Flexibility

Microsoft is committed to providing the widest range of options for the deployment of Microsoft Dynamics NAV. You can already deploy your solution on your premises or choose to engage a hosting Partner who will run the software from their data centres. Many customers are deciding to have Microsoft Dynamics NAV hosted and managed by a third-party. These customers do not have to maintain their IT infrastructure and the staff associated with traditional on-premises implementations. They pay for their ERP solution on a per-user, per-month basis using operational expenditure instead of capital expenditure.

Web Client

As well as the Role Tailored Client, Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 will include a web browser capability that will

The Connector for Microsoft Dynamics

UPDATE!

Connector for Dynamics v2 Rollup 1

This month saw the release of the v2 rollup 1 version of the connector, promising a host of much needed bug fixes and … improved error messages!

Currently I’m not seeing much in the way of improved error messages, but that’s probably because I’m not seeing much in the way of errors.  The rollup seems to address a few of the previous issues and now seems a little more robust.  It’s still as user friendly as a bramble broom handle, but if handled with care is OK.

 My current challenge is what to do with Company contacts – an important part of the CRM architecture in NAV but does not really have a place in Dynamics CRM. The connectors resolution to this problem is to completely ignore them, this way you do not have to worry about what happens when a prospect becomes a customer.  This is not an ideal solution but I have some ideas and will keep you posted.
