The latest version of Microsoft's award winning mid-market business management solution is now available. It is the first major release since Navision became part of Microsoft and it is the culmination of over two years of research to fully understand customer issues and requirements from the Navision product and from Microsoft to help customers achieve long-term business success.
Improving User Experience
Microsoft Navision 4.0 delivers a user experience that helps both employees and system administrators be more efficient and productive, with less effort. Version 4.0 introduces the Navision Navigation Pane which looks and functions very much like the Navigation Pane in Microsoft Office Outlook 2003. Its main menu content has been structured around departmental areas to reflect employees' roles and tasks. Each of these areas has its own menu. This makes it easy to find needed functionality, quickly.
Employees can now personalise the Navision main menu to suit the way they work. Administrators can design and configure the Navision main menu to help employees do their job easier and faster.
Simplicity & Productivity
Transparency and Analysis enhancements help customers take sales orders more efficiently and design their own simple reports in Navision for better analysis of their business. Enhancements in the user interface help sales assistants to work directly in the system when taking an order. Information about item availability, substitutes, prices and discounts are contained in a single view, making it easier to provide quick answers to customer questions. Three new features for reporting, Analysis Reports, Sales and Purchase Budgets and Analysis views by Dimensions are powerful, flexible reporting options without needing to leave the familiar Navision interface
New to v4.0 are Business Notifications - easy to use functionality within Navision that generates e-mail messages to customers, employees, suppliers and partners to inform and alert them of critical business conditions.
Intercompany Postings is new functionality within Navision that helps customers create and distribute intercompany transactions between multiple Navision companies. Also introduced in v4.0 are :
