Our team had the pleasure to once again be a specialty sponsor of BCUG/NAVUG Focus. For those of you who don’t already know, Focus is an annual conference that aims to go deeper into your NAV system. The 90 minute sessions were taught by industry experts in areas such as finance and operations. These sessions were well attended and had a strong emphasis on the development environment of the new Business Central.

If you think Focus is a little technical for your needs, then we hope you will join us at BCUG/NAVUG Summit in October. Follow this link to learn more about what Summit is and how you can register. Contact your Innovia rep to learn how you can save more on registration with Innovia.

Discovery before Presentation

The excitement of getting a presentation, appointment or a demo is exhilarating for a lot of salespeople.  The problem is sometimes the salesperson loves their product or service a little too much.  So much so that they decide to make the whole sales process about how great the product or service is and why they should buy it.

A manufacturing business can always benefit from bridging sales, production and engineering so that a number of criteria can be met – which options are available for parts, which options may work with other options, which options may include other sub-options and the costs of these varying options. 


Integrating NAV with a 3rd party API

I recently finished a project that involves integrating NAV with a 3rd Party API.  This integration required sending/receiving xml documents via the REST service.  I haven’t been able to find a lot of information on this, so I thought I’d blog about my own experience. 


How to: Simplify service order scheduling with NAV

The Visual Service Scheduler (VSS), our visual dispatch board both for the service and the resource planning module in Microsoft Dynamics NAV helps planners allocate service orders to the service technicians.

As user of and/or partner reselling the VSS, you certainly appreciate the easy way you can shift Service Item Lines per drag & drop from the order backlog to the Gantt area, thus allocating the Service Item Lines to the desired resources.
