Microsoft Dynamics NAV for Manufacturing

Today’s business environment is shifting from the traditional model of simply manufacturing and selling products. Supply chains are now global in nature, customers have more options for where to get products and they need their suppliers to be true business partners.

We work with a number of manufacturing companies around the UK and beyond, helping them leverage the benefits that can be attained by implementing Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Utilised company-wide, this leading Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution from Microsoft replaces multiple disparate systems with one integrated solution.

As a specialist in Microsoft Dynamics NAV for manufacturing companies, Acora understands the specific needs of your industry. Our expert team is currently helping organisations like yours overcome challenges such as dealing with a global supply chain and responding quickly to changing customer demands and market trends.

The software is functionally rich but if customisations are required then NAV’s flexibility comes into its own. Its adaptability means that custom built functionality and applications can be easily added, resulting in an even more effective solution. Acora’s development team have built two custom add-ons to meet the unique needs of our manufacturing customers, which we now offer to the market, evidencing our industry experience and the flexibility of the solution.

Our Item Replenishment Routine module keeps our customers’ inventory free from overstocking, and our Quality Assurance module means they can easily maintain high quality product standards.
