Editor’s Note: This is the second post in a two-part blog series on Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015. Read part one, 7 Features in NAV 2015 Your Competitors Don’t Know.
When you invest in an ERP system, you are investing a lot of time, energy and resources. The interesting thing about running a business in 2015 is the growing importance that mobile technology is going to have. All the technology is there to operate a company from anywhere in the world, and ERP systems are making the leap with powerful dashboards at the literal tip of your finger.
Many business owners, like you, may already have tablets and are applying it toward your business; NAV 2015 is a natural extension of the tools you use when working away from your desk. All you need is at least a seven-inch tablet that runs Microsoft Windows, Android or iOS.
Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 is making the leap to mobile with a tablet version that will change the way you interact with your critical data. The interface of Dynamics NAV 2015 for tablets was designed and customized exclusively with touch interfaces in mind. The tablet version of NAV 2015 is built on the same architecture as the desktop version, so “shrinking” down NAV for tablets wasn’t a stretch.
Where Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 for tablets excels is light-weight data entry and getting an overview of a business at-a-glance. For tasks that require heavy amounts of data entry, or more advanced tasks, the desktop versions of NAV is still the way to go.
With the ability to access your NAV system from any device, anywhere you go is going to be a key for businesses that start to embrace the power that mobile technology can unlock. Working with mobile technology is going to be one of the other major differences between business that thrive and business that stagnate.
