Design, development and support services

for global deployments of Dynamics NAV

In order to gain competitive advantage against fast growing competitors, multinational companies move more and more of their operations to low cost countries. On the other hand, their capital advantage as well organisational and process maturity enhance their competitive edge. In addition, technology can boost their competitiveness due to process or work automation.

 

Obviously, ERP systems are one of many areas within which you can demonstrate your technological advantage. Actually, the architecture of the global ERP environment can either consolidate a company or break it into siloes, it can support the implementation of the best practices and process excellence or hinder them. When a new organisation is acquired, an ERP architecture can support your company to smoothly incorporate new organisations or to the contrary strengthen their individuality; it can enhance collaboration or hinder such processes. The webpages the links of which have been published below, respond to questions on how Microsoft Dynamics NAV can deal with such challenges. However, in the background of these issues, lies a fundamental question: does the global ERP architecture implemented meet the requirements your company is facing? Or maybe, does your system’s architecture meet the challenges which your company used to encounter in the past when it was much smaller and not so internationally dispersed as presently?

IT.integro’s experience in the design, development and support of global Microsoft Dynamics NAV installations

IT.integro has been delivering a wide range of services for global Microsoft Dynamics NAV installations since 2006.

 

For 10 years, we have completed projects in various areas and industries shown in the following diagram.

 

We have worked out a niche know-how for solving issues that are specific to international and group companies using Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

Global Template for Microsoft Dynamics NAV

Basically, the difference between a multinational and global company consists in the fact that being multinational means having foreign subsidiaries in other countries. In this case, the headquarters’ mentality is dominated by the distintion we/the rest of the world. A global company is an organisation within which the concept of headquarters does not exist and which is not rooted in one country in a mental sense. A global company is just a worldwide market player. In such an organization, implementing the Global Template for Microsoft Dynamics NAV is a change, which is the add-on value of the project. Organizational improvements involve the transformation of an ERP environment which is based on Microsoft Dynamics NAV: multiple geographically dispersed siloses are integrated into one standardised solution which enables you to benefit from being global. When does the size of a company cease to be a burden for an IT department which struggles with master data management, or for a financial department which is unable to deliver monthly closures or consolidated financial reports timely and precisely? The size of a company can become its advantage if the company uses and forges its best processes within a group, ensuring smooth collaboration, implementing supply change improvements and increasing its customer engagement.

 

Global Template or System Core is a method IT.integro has developed for existing or potential international business users of Microsoft Dynamics NAV to enable them comprehensive synergy and processes standardisation. Project assumptions based on Global Template incorporate the three fundamental areas including a global database and uniform documentation setup.

Project methodology

IT.integro has adapted the Microsoft Dynamics Sure Step methodology to group project requirements and created its own methodology. Based on this methodology, global projects are delivered across five main phases. At the most general level, these phases focus on global and local processes and data which is used as a basis to design a global template for the solution. Then, the Global Template becomes a starting point for the implementation of Microsoft Dynamics NAV in all subsidiaries (system roll-out).

Master Data Management System for Microsoft Dynamics NAV

IT.integro’s copyrighted solution designed to synchronise master data in multinational companies is used as a central element in projects based on NAV Group Project Methodology. It has been developed based on experience in multiple NAV international projects IT.integro has successfully completed throughout the years.

More on Master Data Management System for Microsoft Dynamics NAV. The page Master Data Standardization in multinational companies describes how the solution should be implemented in an international company and what organisational changes it results in.

GUIDE:
ERP system to support a Global Business

As organizations expand globally, their needs and ambitions change due to thescope and complexity of their operations and the challenges they face at the local level.

Benefits of global NAV standardization

Evolution patterns show that systems tend to become more complex as they evolve, then they are simplified. Microsoft Dynamics NAV installations in international companies follow this pattern, if projects in different subsidiaries are delivered independently. As the system is implemented in subsequent countries, the whole environment becomes more and more complex. Data inconsistencies, different setup, charts of accounts and processes become more and more challenging for multuinational companies. At this point, standardization can lead to simplification of the environment, ensuring the following benefits:

  •  reduce development and maintenance costs,
  •  scale-based benefits,
  •  faster implementation of changes,
  •  simplified flow of information,
  •  and many other. Read more on benefits of global standardisation of    Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

Why Microsoft Dynamics NAV?

For decades, the name “global company” was a synonym of a large international corporation with complex business processes and an excessive organizational structure. An important new development in the international business arena has been the rise of ‘mini-multinationals’ – small and medium size enterprises that do business on a global basis (Hill, C.W.L. 2005 International business: competing in the global marketplace).

 

Obviously, Microsoft Dynamics NAV is not a system dedicated for international corporations but for SMBs. More and more of such companies enhance their presence in terms of geographical expansion. Microsoft Dynamics NAV is one of the best systems available on the ERP market designed for multinational companies from the SMB sector. The system is functionally and technically sophisticated, which is due to Microsoft’s intensive investment in its development throughout recent years. This is however not the only reason for its recognition as one of the best solutions. Its popularity is the most objective indicator. If we exclude solutions designed for substantially bigger companies than SMBs (the left circle below), and then analyse ERP systems offered by Microsoft (the right circle below), it turns out that in the SMB sector, Microsoft Dynamics NAV is one of the leaders among ERP systems. This translates into practical consequences meaning that legal compliance is ensured in almost all countries This is a large advantage of Microsoft Dynamics NAV over other ERP systems for SMB, which are frequently tailored only for one country and region.

Two-tier ERP strategy

The topic of supplementing Microsoft Dynamics NAV for multinational companies should be considered jointly with the two-tier architecture, in which two ERP solutions are used depending on their needs. The relation between such systems can have many forms. If it involves using Microsoft Dynamics NAV, the system is usually used as a tool for smaller, simpler companies within the group, which in its headquarters uses large ERP systems such as SAP or Oracle. We have already managed projects of this type for many multinational companies.
