Vic Air on cloud nine with EBS and Dynamics NAV
When Melbourne’s Vic Air Supplies recognised that its old financial system was holding it back, it chose Microsoft Dynamics NAV, deployed by Evolution Business Systems (EBS) as the replacement. Since then, the 30-person heating, ventilation and air conditioning specialist has delivered better planning, more accurate reporting, strengthened stock management and more responsive customer service.
Business benefits: Faster reporting, fewer errors and better decisions
Ms Hughes said moving to the cloud with Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Office 365 had eliminated Vic Air Supplies’ need for servers and expensive licensing. “With Office 365 and NAV, we can just deploy and pay for licences as we need them,” she said.
“We can increase our capacities very easily and, on the flip side, we’re not paying extra for services that we’re not using or we don’t have the staff for.”
“So NAV has proven it’s a smart cost-effective solution and it’s simpler to operate. We’ve got browser-based and app-based deployments as well as workstation installs, so our workforce can use our systems when they’re mobile anywhere, anytime. That really helps the sales team.”
“NAV is a smarter system that helps keep staff informed and make better decisions.”
“As the business grew and its needs became more complex, the old system was a big wound that kept getting bigger … NAV is a smarter system that helps keep staff informed and make better decisions.”
