New visualization capabilities in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009
Less than a year since the milestone release of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009, Microsoft Corp. announced new capabilities and enhancements to the Microsoft Dynamics RoleTailored user experience that further increase business productivity. This move supports Microsoft's promise to enable the Dynamic Business, which includes offering flexible business applications that remain relevant as business needs evolve.
The new visualization capabilities allow partners to create innovative visual custom controls using Microsoft technologies such as Silverlight, while additional personalization capabilities such as improved data entering and quick navigation can result in appreciable time savings across an organization. Customers also benefit from having direct access from within the Role Center to the latest product information and user forums through a feature called Connect.
"Our customers are appreciating having better insight and increased control over the level of information displayed, while our partners are celebrating the creative appeal of the new visualization capabilities with Client Extensibility that enable the differentiation of vertical solutions through visual representation of complex data," said Crispin Read, general manager of Microsoft Dynamics ERP. "The new capabilities are a result of close collaboration with our customers and partners; they build on the core values of simplicity and productivity that are the hallmarks of Microsoft Dynamics NAV."
Celebrating Strong Partner Vertical Success
The Microsoft Dynamics ERP business has had tremendous success with partners delivering solutions for Microsoft Dynamics NAV, which serve the vertical needs of customers such as those in automotive manufacturing, waste management, construction, pharma, equipment rental, fashion retail, food production, real estate, shipping and hospitality. "Microsoft Dynamics NAV serves as a rapid development platform that makes it easy for partners like us to deliver vertical or micro-vertical solutions," said Steen Waever Poulsen, chief operating officer, Trimit A/S.
More than 100 Microsoft Dynamics NAV partner solutions have received the Certified for Microsoft Dynamics distinction, a recognition for solutions that meet Microsoft's highest development standards.
