With Thanksgiving just behind us I have had time to reflect on the year.  We at Innovia have so much to be thankful for. First and foremost are our customers. You continue to be great partners for us and are instrumental in helping us grow our business. We are always grateful for your continued faith in our abilities and services.  Without you we would not be experiencing the growth in our business.

We are also grateful and very excited with the formal release of Business Central. Microsoft has built an extraordinary product on top of the NAV code base.  The modern look and feel of the user interface and the new architecture makes Business Central the best product in NAV history.  Business Central  provides a solid road-map for the future of the product that we all know and use every day.  

As users of NAV, you can upgrade to Business Central either on premise or SaaS just like you would have with any other NAV version.  If you want to “test drive” Business Central, you can easily spin up a 30-day trial version or purchase a single full user license for a low monthly fee.  Both options give you the opportunity to see Business Central in action. As you play around with it you will begin to see some of the great new functionality.

Finally, we want to take a moment to express our thanks to Marko Perisic from Microsoft. Marko has been instrumental in growing NAV and evolving it to the current Business Central offering. His leadership and support of the NAV community has been extraordinary. Marko recently announced that he is moving on to a new opportunity.  We want to wish him all the best in the next phase of his career.

You might be wondering: Isn’t that true for most or all Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems? It might surprise you to find out that most systems don’t. 


How to detect and protect against employee expense fraud

Any employer wants to believe that the people working for them are completely honest.

Survey after survey, however, suggest that things aren’t always what they seem, and despite high levels of trust within an organisation, some employees tend to be a little less than honest with the company’s money.

Yet evidence suggests that employees who commit expense fraud generally don’t regard themselves as out and out fraudsters.


Microsoft Dynamics Business Central: Food Distributors Inventory Levels and Costs

Inventory costs money. Therefore, too much inventory equals money wasted.

Every distributor knows the cost of holding goods in stock. There are different costing methods, but in general, the cost of inventory is expressed as a percentage of the inventory value. It includes numerous variables such as capital, warehousing, depreciation, insurance, taxation, obsolescence, and shrinkage costs.


Why B2B Businesses Must Evolve Beyond First-Generation E-Commerce

B2B e-commerce, as we know it today, has developed in phases.

For years, the inception of online sales (and businesses’ subsequent rush to build out a preliminary online experience) has been known as E-Commerce 1.0, or first-generation e-commerce.

First-generation e-commerce was about stepping into online sales for the first time and allowing previously offline sales processes to become virtual ones.
