Take Your Software to the Next Level with our Webinar Series

Realize the full potential of your bcERP and Dynamics NAV software solutions through our webinar series, ERP Unlocked: Using bcERP with NAV to Effectively Run Your Business. Taking place in the third week of each month, our next session will be held on October 25, at 2:00 PM ET/11:00 AM PT. We hope to see you there!

Webinar 26: Advanced Reporting Options

October 25, 2018
2:00 PM ET/11:00 AM PT

In this webinar we will look at expanding your reporting capabilities beyond NAV’s built-in report designing tools. We will explore options such as bcERP’s Data Warehouse, Style sheets, and Power BI. These various tools build on the data sets within NAV to give you additional options for providing data in a meaningful format to your users.

We will start with a demonstration of how Style sheets can be used to define the layout of NAV reports. Style sheets make use of Microsoft Word’s inherent mail merge functionality, enabling you to build your own documents and reports without any NAV development. Next we will review the bcERP Data Warehouse, an out-of-the-box solution that contains predefined cubes and views for you to use with any front-end report designing tool, from Excel to SQL Report Builder. Finally, we will look at the capabilities of Power BI. Power BI is a combination of three formerly-named Microsoft products: Power Query, Power Pivot, and Power View. This data visualization tool allows you to create dashboards and reports with your NAV or bcERP Data Warehouse data. With Power BI, you can create an extensive business reporting engine, complete with visualizations and custom calculations.

This session will include the following:

  • Overview of the NAV Report Designer
  • Setup and creation of style sheets
  • bcERP Data Warehouse structures
  • SQL Report Builder using SSRS
  • Power BI web and desktop

About ERP Unlocked

Learning how to use Dynamics NAV is not particularly difficult; oftentimes it’s as simple as pressing the F1 button and reading the supplied help file. Learning how to use Dynamics NAV to its fullest potential, on the other hand, is a different story. Oftentimes there are multiple ways to obtain the same result in the system, and the question then becomes which is best for your organization. The answer is a bit more difficult than reading a few help files, and requires a level of knowledge that comes only through years of experience with software projects and implementations.

In business for more than 30 years, we at Beck Consulting possess this level of expertise with both Microsoft Dynamics NAV and our own bcERP product. We are confident that we can provide guidance on the optimal way to configure, manage, and work within your ERP environment, and want you our customer to take full advantage of the wisdom we have to offer. That is why we are excited to announce our monthly webinar series ERP Unlocked: Using bcERP with NAV to Effectively Run Your Business.

ERP Unlocked will be more than just a straightforward product demo or by-the-numbers review of every field on every page. Our goal is to present the same scenarios, events, and challenges that you face in your day-to-day operations, then provide you with the best way to address them.

With the conclusion of our inaugural 12 part series that addressed every major stage of a manufacturing environment, our next set of sessions will feature more in-depth walkthroughs of specific functional areas. Upcoming presentations will cover Beck Consulting modules such as Workflow, Notifications, and License Plating. We will also present add-on applications (offered by both us at Beck Consulting and some of our trusted partners) that we feel can assist our customers in getting even more functionality out of their NAV solutions. If there is a particular topic or area you would like us to address, please let us know.
