Finally! The much anticipated release of the SaaS version of Dynamics NAV now named Dynamics 365 Business Central will be available April 2, 2018. We are very excited by this release since we have a large NAV customer base and we are also a CSP or Cloud Service Provider. This means that Clients First can sell you Business Central or the Dynamics 365 Enterprise Edition. Both solutions are great for finance, distribution and manufacturing, but as you can imagine Dynamics 365 Enterprise is for companies that have a larger employee count, and most importantly complex business requirements.

Overdue Announcement Made: Dynamics 365 for Financials will have the full functionality of Dynamics NAV
Updated 05/25/2017: If you have been a follower of our blogs about Dynamics NAV, then you will have noticed our almost year long silence about the software. Clients First Texas specializes in helping manufacturers, MRO’s and Service Companies with ERP software. Because Dynamics 365 for financials only contained a subset of Dynamics NAV functionality, we did not think that Dynamics for Financials would be a good fit for our clientele. Our stance on this has changed as Dynamics 365 for Financials will have “full NAV” functionality by the end of the year. At Directions Asia held in March 2017, Microsoft announced that Dynamics 365 for Financials will have the same code base, and be the same product but will be offered in a SaaS model. Oct 1, 2017.

I am pleased that we had so much interest in our presentation of CADLink to Dynamics AX. Of course CADLink works with Dynamics NAV, Acumatica and most all ERP solutions even though the ones we represent are the best! CADLink is important to us because the customers and prospects at Clients First are either a MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) in the aviation or heavy equipment industry or they are a complex discrete manufacturer. Even our MRO clients have a CAD and BOM requirement since they often are re-engineering and re-manufacturing engines, turbines or other equipment.
As a CFO of a manufacturing or MRO company, you know all to well, how your time spent looking at the bottom line, and directing your business through financial mazes and getting the best business solutions for your company can be a time consuming process. Clients First Texas recently partnered with an Independent Software Vendor (ISV) with great references and a solution many of our manufacturers need; CADLink by Qbuild has tangible returns on investment of integrating CADLink with your ERP solution. As a result, we are presenting the CAD integration solution by having a webinar aimed at the manufacturing and MRO industries. The webinar will be held on March 24th at 12PM CST. Read more

Microsoft Dynamics NAV Workflow Functionality
Who doesn’t like work being easier? Microsoft Dynamics NAV makes work processes almost painless through new features in the 2016 version like posting previews and workflows. NAV workflows ensure your business follows best practices by automating approval requests and request notifications. What makes this functionality even more impressive in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016, is that your business can use more than 20 workflow templates to connect business processes according to best practices.
Anyone with appropriate permissions can design a workflow by creating or modifying workflow steps and selecting from lists of events and responses. A workflow designer can build sophisticated workflows, without the need of adding application code. For example your sales team would like to sell a finished good that has slim margins since they have some latitude on pricing. However, if they price an item below a certain margin percentage a workflow could kickoff that would require the controller, sales manager and/or the CFO to approve the order prior to shipping. This is especially important to manufacturing companies and of course any distributor.
