Understanding the new flexible Cloud options from Microsoft and EBS

I wanted to reflect on how things are changing in ‘our’ world, of course when I say our world I mean the ERP world, Evolution Business Systems has been in this business for over 12 years and over these years we have seen changes. To be fair, the changes we acknowledged towards the beginning were at a much slower pace than that of todays environment. Although at the time they may have seemed very progressive on reflection they were a little dull in comparison to what is happening today. But then we (computer application people) have been known to get excited about things that most people find dull anyway.

What this means is that the mobile device and applications used in the field use the business rules and logic from the back end Microsoft Dynamics NAV ERP system. You can be assured that validations; security; client codes and terms etc flow through from your back end systems.

Job Costing will be integrated with the Bill of Materials module where a job can be linked to the production/manufacturing of a stock item. A production order can be generated direct from a job, tracking all costs and updating the stock balance. You can also load a Bill of Materials into a job estimate.
