Unparalleled Microsoft Integration

meeting
 

Overview

Microsoft invests over $1 billion in research and development into its Dynamics product line. Microsoft Dynamics NAV for Government Contractors takes full advantage of this investment as it relates to integration with Microsoft technologies most government contractors are using today to run their business.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV for Government Contractors has the capabilities required for growing businesses that sell to Federal Government agencies. Dynamics NAV incorporates a number of Microsoft .NET technologies into its architecture and is easily integrated with other Microsoft applications. This incredibly flexible solution features the following:

  • Integrated financial management and project accounting
  • Flexibility for high-growth firms
  • Seamless integration with Microsoft Office applications
  • Better management information and reporting
  • Real-time access to data
  • Built-in analytics

Microsoft Dynamics NAV has the same look and feel as all Microsoft products, including Windows and MS Office, which most operators are familiar with. It is built on Microsoft services such as the SQL Server database and Microsoft SharePoint. Because of this and the product’s inherent flexibility, Microsoft Dynamics NAV requires less staff resources to manage.  Any Microsoft trained professional can learn how to manage and operate the system in a very short period of time. Most accounting and program professionals are familiar with the Windows look and feel so training is much shorter and operators can be up and running much quicker than with competing offerings. Microsoft Dynamics NAV for Government Contractors is Certified for Microsoft Dynamics by Microsoft.

The solution’s integration with Microsoft SharePoint is very exciting as more and more government contractors use this technology to collaborate with their customers and internal organizations.  SharePoint can be used as a project team worksite; data from Dynamics NAV can be retrieved to give the team information they need to manage the project. You can download to Excel as well to format and manipulate the data for reports. As teams keep gravitating to SharePoint, there’s a wealth of data they can get from NAV to help ensure the project’s success.

  • Pivot tables for pulling data out of the system to use in Excel.
  • Drill down from SharePoint to get deeper with the integration.
  • Integration to Outlook and Microsoft Office.

    • Dynamics NAV incorporates a number of Microsoft .NET technologies into its architecture. Microsoft describes .NET as “a set of software technologies that enables an unprecedented level of software integration through the use of XML Web services.” By using .NET technologies, Dynamics NAV already delivers many of the opportunities .NET promises: collaboration across systems, seamless connectivity with a variety of business partners, and more. With .NET, Dynamics NAV is a solution built for the future and one that is secure long term.

The Technology Framework underlying Dynamics NAV is intended to support adaptability, openness, efficiency, reliability, and collaboration. The application is the sum of all the components working together to deliver the complete Dynamics NAV solution. As all the components are interconnected, they all help deliver common values to the user.
There are a large number of reasons why PVBS chose to bring this solution to government contractors. Any level of customization is possible with Dynamics NAV and PVBS has taken advantage of this functionality by making the solution specifically valuable for government contractors. It can be customized to support the simplest workflows of individual employees – how they organize their data and the steps they go through to complete their tasks – as well as that of a whole department. With Dynamics NAV, you have one very common interface for all your employees to learn to use and one interface to link your business.
Dynamics NAV has the consistent Microsoft user interface throughout, which makes it easy for employees to learn and to get up to speed quickly. Many companies have made significant investments in Microsoft technology and now the business now has one solution for all information and departments. Team members work in the same type of interface throughout all the application areas. Information is centralized, and more easily shared across departments, so people can work more efficiently. The workflow of individual employees and departments is supported, and everyone is connected via Dynamics NAV.  The Windows-based design of Dynamics NAV makes it easy for employees to work efficiently with the solution. Every application area contains online help so employees can navigate their way through the solution. A personalized home page for every employee with all the information they need helps them stay focused on their work and complete tasks in better time.
