Microsoft Dynamics NAV is a popular on-premises and hosted ERP platform. Dynamics NAV offers some native financial reporting with its Account Schedules and it has basic budgeting functionality. To get enhanced reporting, some NAV customers have deployed Jet Express or Jet Reports. Companies will typically evaluate a Corporate Performance Management (CPM) solution like Solver when they grow out of the native functionality in Dynamics NAV or when they are looking to upgrade to a modern cloud solution and get away from maintaining on-premises Excel models. They may also choose to upgrade from another CPM tool to ensure better integration with Dynamics NAV.
About Solver’s CPM Integration for Dynamics NAV
Solver is part of Microsoftâ€™s Gold independent software vendor (ISV) program and we have developed our two NAV connectors over many years and with feedback from hundreds of NAV customers.
Dynamics NAV Cloud Connector – Enables automated loading of data into Solver from any module in NAV. The integration connects the Solver Cloud application to the NAV SQL database using Solverâ€™s secure Gateway application.
Dynamics NAV Hybrid Connector â€“ This unique technology enables LIVE reporting from Solver Cloud with a direct connection into your on-premises or hosted NAV database.
In addition to benefitting from Solverâ€™s advanced planning, reporting, and consolidations functionality, Dynamics NAV customers can also use Solverâ€™s Power BI or Tableau connectors to deliver pre-structured data to any of these visualization tools and dramatically speed up deployment of dashboards.
Furthermore, as NAV customers plan their migration to Dynamics 365 Business Central, Solver can simplify the migration to the new ERP by also serving as a data store for any number of years of historical data from NAV, thus reducing the effort to convert historical data and reducing the need to keep the old NAV system running.
