With Microsoft Dynamics NAV Added to its Portfolio, Concentrix is ERP ‘Product Agnostic’

Independent UK business management software and IT solutions provider Concentrix is now offering Microsoft Dynamics NAV, the popular mid-market ERP product.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV (formerly Navision) helps companies improve processes throughout their business operations. By adding the product to its portfolio, Concentrix now provides a choice of integrated business management solutions.

Ian Dawkins, Concentrix Managing Director, comments, “Offering Microsoft Dynamics NAV is the next logical step for Concentrix. The latest version, Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009, is a highly innovative product, both from a user’s point of view and from a technological stance. It’s extremely popular in the UK, and delivers significant process and efficiency improvements to businesses.”

Established in 1999, Concentrix has followed a consistent, strategic growth plan. The company supplies ‘best-in-breed’ CRM solutions, accounting software, business intelligence software, plus hardware, IT infrastructure and a comprehensive range of supporting services.

Like Microsoft Dynamics NAV, the Sage 200 suite (which Concentrix has been providing since 2007), also delivers end-to-end business process improvement for small and mid-sized businesses. So why offer more than one integrated business management solution?

Dawkins replies “By offering a choice of solutions, we’re able to offer ‘product agnostic’ advice to businesses looking to implement business management software. In other words, we’ll help you choose the most suitable option to meet your business requirements, rather than try and shoe-horn in a solution that’s not necessarily the best fit for your objectives, processes or staff”.

“Microsoft Dynamics NAV not only offers more choice to our customers, it also has a massive range of industry and process-specific add-on applications. We have an outstanding technical team who can deploy the solution quickly, integrate it with other applications and tailor it to do exactly what businesses need it to do”.

So when would Concentrix recommend Microsoft Dynamics NAV over the Sage 200 suite, or vice-versa?

Chris Smith, Senior ERP Consultant at Concentrix, explains, “Generally Microsoft Dynamics NAV is used by organisations with more complex or specialised processes than those that use the Sage 200 suite. Microsoft Dynamics NAV has other features, such as the role-tailored nature of the product, close integration with other Microsoft solutions, and it readily scales-up to a large number of users, which appeal to many businesses.”

It’s not always a straightforward decision though. Smith continues, “Choosing between Microsoft Dynamics NAV and the Sage 200 suite is by no means a clear-cut choice. There’s a variety of differences in the products, some quite subtle. So if you’re considering a business management or ERP solution, the best option is to get in touch with Concentrix. Our experts will talk it through with you and provide comprehensive advice and guidance.”
