DYNAMICS NAV UPGRADES
Often companies do not upgrade their software because the effort seems much greater than the reward. The time involved, the costs and the training required may seem to outweigh the benefit of having the latest version of the software. With the right consultants on the job this will definitely not be the case. With the added functionality and efficiencies you will save money in the long run.
Are you not yet on the current version of Dynamics Nav and wonder if you really should be?
The elements you may need to consider are;
Q. What benefits can we get from the latest version?
A. There really are many benefits, see the Solutions page for more details and references.
Q. How easily can it be done?
A. An upgrade will not be complex if your solution provider has the right experience and skills. The time involved to upgrade the application will depend on the level of customisation already in place, the quality of the customisations and the resources doing the job. It also depends on the version you are currently on, and the version to which you wish to upgrade. Sometimes the data may need to be upgraded incrementally if the versions are vastly different, but generally this will not affect the upgrade adversely.
Q. How do we reduce the costs and eliminate the risk?
A. By contracting the right people to do the upgrade. But how can you be sure?
Dynamic Business IT Solutions has performed many upgrades, with 100% success rate. We understand that to make an upgrade successful, attention to detail is as important as knowledge of the product.
1) All customisations have to be identified. No further customisation of the system should take place until the upgrade is complete.
2) The customisations then need to be 'merged' into the new version - if they are still required.
3) Simulate the upgrade and test (done by reseller/solution provider). Each version of Dynamics Nav comes with an upgrade toolkit to assist in transitioning data as necessary. A test upgrade would be performed followed by testing of the 'merged' customisations and critical functionality.
4) Train the users in the test system. (This will also act as further base testing).
6) User Testing.
5) Backup the live data.
6) Perform the upgrade steps on the live data and GO-LIVE.

Over the years Dynamic Business IT Solutions has seen many examples and spoken to many people, where upgrades have required much more effort, time and cost than they should have, and the results were far less than pleasing. In some instances functionality was left out altogether, keys missed and in general performance was sub-standard. In all these cases the poor results were due to either a lack of focus, a lack of attention to detail or inexperience.
Dynamic Business IT Solutions has only experienced and focused staff to perform upgrades to ensure you get the best results.
If you would like more information, please don't hesitate to contact us.

DYNAMICS NAV RECOVERY
Unfortunately implementations can go wrong and often do. The same also applies to upgrades and customisations that were not completed correctly, sometimes even at all. This leads to rising costs, increased downtime, poor performance and unsatisfied users. The last thing anyone needs is a fantastic product that doesn't work well.
Are you very happy with your Dynamics Nav solution? If not then you may need to get in touch with us.
Dynamic Business IT Solutions has extensive experience in performing recovery projects and in some cases the solutions to what seemed to be complex issues were in fact quite simple.
Dynamic Business IT Solutions can provide the advice you need, review the issues and identify the causes, and help you resolve the issues with your Dynamics Nav system.
Whether you need sound advice or professional development, contact us to find out how you can benefit from our support.
DYNAMICS NAV TRAINING
Do you need some hands-on training to ease users into the new systems/processes?
In case you didn't already know, if you are up-to-date with your maintenance (Microsoft yearly subscription fee) you can access the latest online training and many other resources for Microsoft Dynamics Nav through Customer Source.
Quite often a lot of users get the most from hands-on training sessions conducted at work, especially when the training is conducted with insight and business relevant practices. This is often best because users are committed to the time-frame of the few hours in a training environment where interruptions can be avoided. This is insurance that users get the best chance possible to absorb more information. It also ensures that all users in the session receive training on the specified topics to ensure that they don't just skip-over the areas they may think are not relevant at the time.
Dynamic Business IT Solutions has been running all sorts of training sessions and classes for many years. Our confident and intuitive approach to training helps users understand the way Dynamics Nav works inside. This approach also enables users to appreciate the inter-relationships they develop with other users when interacting within the system.
Our training formats are flexible and are suited to the specific circumstances. Where classroom style training is required we believe that a maximum of four hours training should be held at any one time, to ensure that users are not overwhelmed and to reduce the workload catch-up. We also develop movie-style training for customised Dynamics Nav implementations which make it much easier for new staff to transition into new roles, which reduces the amount of peer training and hand-holding required saving you time and money.
Some of our trainers worked at Navision Headquarters (before Microsoft purchased Navision) and held courses to teach Dynamics Nav application and technical consultants around the country. We have the experience and patience to help your users get the most out of Dynamics Nav.
If you have any hands-on training requirements, please contact us for assistance.
Do you really know what it takes from all parties to manage a project effectively and achieve all deliverables?

BUSINESS & SYSTEMS ANALYSIS
When it comes time for an impartial analysis of your systems and processes, what skills do think a consultant needs to possess?
Business and systems analysts need to possess the skills of effective communication, process decomposition, procedural analysis, needs assessment and solutions design. Only once all the variables and parameters involved with a project are clearly understood can an innovative and effective solution be undertaken. Whether or not the solution involves process changes, software customisation or automation changes depends on the organisation, people and processes involved.
Business analysis involves working with users to gain a clear understanding of where a business is at and where it needs to be, then to develop the solution to allow the business to get there smoothly. Only when the current business processes are understood and the goals/objectives of the business/project clearly defined, can an appropriate path be mapped to take the business to where it needs to be.
What makes the difference between an analyst and a good analyst is the experience and method that the analyst leverages. The most simple and important question that is often not asked throughout all of the above processes above is "why?". Without a clear understanding of the logic and reasoning for each of these three phases, the solution may not be precise and the real business benefits may not be realised.
Companies can be confident that Dynamic Business IT Solutions has the experience and skills required to get the job done in a most efficient manner to lower the costs and increase the benefit. With Dynamic Business IT Solutions you can rely on the process, and count on the results.
Manage the change
Due to the rapid amount of change that businesses experience, additionally with the implementation of new information systems and business processes, the risk of a change project's success is increased without effective change management. The core skills required to effectively manage change are mainly interpersonal skills; communication, conflict resolution, negotiation skills, team and team building skills, personal networking and process skills. What is also important is how these skills are utilised to manage the three aspects of change; the individuals, the organisation and the change agent.
It is important to understand how and why an individual will react or respond to change. It is important to understand the impact of how the change initiatives within an organisation are formulated and implemented, considering the environment in which the organisation operates. Also it is vital that the change agent(s) within an organisation or project monitor the change and evaluate which skills are required to implement the change smoothly and effectively.
Dynamic Business IT Solutions has assisted many companies with Change Management, and provided strategic advice to assist companies with their own internal change management processes. If you need to discuss the elements of change management and how they may apply to your company's circumstances, or if you require the assistance of a Change Management consultant to work within your next project to build team support/commitment and minimise conflict and resistance, please don't hesitate to contact us.
BUSINESS CONSULTING SERVICES
Dynamic Business IT Solutions provides a range of general business consulting services to our customers. We provide customers with general services such as, but not limited to, Initial Needs Assessment, Feasibility Studies and Reporting, Solutions Evaluation and Systems Design Audits.
Although companies are aware of the need for change, they often do not possess the skills or experience and unbiased focus in-house to conduct a reliable Initial Needs Assessment. Dynamic Business IT Solutions provides the analysis and reporting skills required to help your company uncover what its real needs actually are.
Once an initial needs assessment has been performed a company will need to determine the capital impact of the desired change. The feasibility of the project will be determined by the influences for the project, the benefits of the desired outcomes of the project, and a clear understanding and representation of the costs and risks involved in fulfilling a project. Although an initial needs assessment may uncover the greater need for change, the economic environment and many other factors will influence the feasibility of a project. If you are in doubt of the benefits you should receive by implementing changes or systems, or the likelihood of achieving the expected results, get in contact with Dynamic Business IT Solutions for assistance.
Solutions Evaluation and Systems Design Audits are both separate elements of our business consulting practice but are generally very closely aligned. It is very important to appreciate and determine that a 'suggested' solution is actually the best solution to undertake. At times (most often) other simple solutions are not presented to clients for a range of reasons. Also the architecture or systems design of a solution may often lack the structure, functionality or logic required to deliver on the processes and goals it is to achieve. If you feel that a solution or design presented to you was lacking, over-complicated or may be off-target, please contact us to see if we can help with a second opinion or assessment of your desired project plans.
Documentation for software systems or business processes come in many guises. Dynamic Business IT Solutions produces quality documentation ranging from detailed application or technical documentation (may be required to support system maintenance and super-user training) through to end-user cheat-sheets, we also produce compiled video format tutorials and system-use instructions.
What to expect from effective professional documentation;
Depending on the type of documentation, effective documentation should provide;
1. Minimisation or elimination of the risk of change in solution providers or software developers
2. Reduced costs associated with information hand-over (technical or application)
3. Reduced costs in future software developments
5. Reduced costs of support and issue resolution
6. Consistent information resources
7. Lower cost of training
8. Reliability of information
Dynamic Business IT Solutions has been producing 1st class documentation to clients for many years and we look forward to assisting you with any documentation services or assistance you may require.
