Business Challenges Faced by The Company


The enterprise needed to implement a new ERP solution on an urgent basis to manage departments such as inventory, finance, manufacturing, and supply chain due to the unsatisfactory performance of their current NAV version (NAV'13) in terms of inventory management and valuation.

The functions and capabilities of NAV to manage the accounting needs were not satisfactory for the company, affecting the overall performance of the department.

This manufacturer faced difficulties in tracking employee time on the shop floor.

The current NAV version made it difficult for the enterprise to collect supply chain and inventory data in real-time.

The company was using an unreliable third-party solution for measuring, analyzing, and sharing product information.
