Out-of-the-Box BI on Navision / Business Central

Today, business leaders identify your company's data and analytical capabilities as one of the most important assets to survive in an increasingly competitive world. The right information at the right time is key in making decisions, from strategic to operational level.

Often companies have a tough time to get these right insights after a Microsoft Dynamics NAV / BC ERP implementation.

There is even a burden to get your core figures right ! As a consequence, people lose confidence in spreadsheet-based reporting, hesitate to act on data and are disappointed with the investment made in the ERP system. Finally, your company risks ending-up in what we could call a disconnected report culture of manually produced Excel spreadsheets.

Is your company also struggling in making such informed decisions based on your data, despite investments made in Microsoft Dynamics NAV / BC ? Time to act!
