Microsoft has made available its Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 enterprise resource planning (ERP) tool for small to mid-size businesses (SMBs). The update includes a touch-optimised user interface for use on tablet devices, and the ability to integrate with Microsoft's cloud-based Office 365 productivity suite.
The latest version of Microsoft's application to help smaller companies manage their accounting and finances, supply chain and operations is quick to deploy, easy to use, and has new capabilities designed to help customers expand in a mobile-first, cloud-first world, the firm said.
Among the key features in the new release are personalised home pages that let users view their most important business data and key performance indicators at a glance, and the ability to deploy in the cloud on Microsoft's Azure platform or as part of its Office 365 suite.
Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 is also optimised for access via popular tablet platforms, with new applications available to download now from the relevant app stores for Windows, Apple and Android devices.
Writing on the Microsoft Dynamics blog, Gordon Macdonald, head of ERP product marketing at Microsoft, said that the latest release offered significant new capabilities in managing finances.
"Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 helps customers collect cash faster and spend less time managing it with new capabilities for electronic payments and automated account reconciliation," he said.
"These enhancements include a new Bank Data Conversion Service delivered on Microsoft Azure by AMC Consult A/S that enables automated processes for electronic payments, payment reconciliation and bank account reconciliation right within Microsoft Dynamics NAV."
For existing customers, Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 also includes enhanced upgrade tools to help lower the cost and time required to move customer implementations to the current version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, the firm said.
