AV MEDIA has completed an UPGRADE to the new version of the business information system Dynamics NAV
AV MEDIA, a.s. based in Prague, had until recently been using an older version of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV business information system. Thanks to the continued technological development of the company and its active efforts to maintain a high level of service, it has decided to upgrade the existing information system to a newer version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV. AV MEDIA thus gained access to the new technologies and features that the new version of the system provides. At the same time, the need to change the settings of some business processes was also solved.
The actual implementation of the project at AV MEDIA, a.s. was preceded by an extensive process analysis and design creation. Its goal was to essentially slim down customized solutions and redesign functionality to maximize the capabilities that the standard version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 offers. Upgrading the existing system brought, among other things, a completely new user interface, more sophisticated data transfer capabilities between ERP and external applications, and improved integration with Business Intelligence.
Deploying a new version of the system represented a comprehensive coverage of all business processes and managed to interconnect all agendas (Projects, Purchase, Service, Sales) with the Finance module. The company now better plans resources, efficiently deals with leasing and has the ability to track detailed costs and revenue for the project. At the same time, the creation of business calculations directly from NAV has been standardized and the implementation of operational changes in budgets has been simplified.
The company is now using the reporting tool from Jet Reports, which is a specialized solution for creating specific ERP outputs. The implementation was an interesting project that used the methodology of historical data transfer to the data warehouse for subsequent analyzes using OLAP technologies. Within the implementation, the unique NavSherpa integration module was implemented for the first time, enabling the company to streamline data transfer between Microsoft Dynamics NAV and DMS Microsoft SharePoint platform.
Implementation took place in the second half of 2016, and on January 2, 2017, the system was launched. In the first half of 2017, the final phase of customer support after launch and the subsequent development of lower priority features took place.
