Recently there was an article released that announced the World’s population is reaching 7 Billion. Whether you find this good news or bad, the fact of the
matter is that it requires more individual action, than ever before to stand out
from the crowd. Companies are required to find new ways to help themselves
become more productive and get noticed.

This is especially true when undertaking a new software implementation.
Change can be difficult and knowing when and where to get help, post
implementation, can also be costly. However, you need not be alone with NAV.
Dynamics NAV has been in use for 25 years and has a long-standing network of companies with committed users  willing and able to lend a friendly helping hand; to listen. Microsoft has also acknowledged there is a serious following with this ERP Product Line and sees sales aren’t just happening because of demos, they also occur when there are connections within a community,  an ever-growing community of passionate end-users.  NAV hasn’t improved by chance, but by input from these long-standing groupies and feedback from its users.

When a company makes the decision to install NAV, not only are the receiving software but a way to connect and be heard. Finding the best place to voice an opinion, an answer to industry specific questions or just learn about the newest release can all be done easily when you belong to one of the many NAV communities that exists. Knowing that there are other users and companies that share the same viewpoint or issue can add value and a sense of belonging in this ever enlarging world.

We encourage you to take full advantage of one (or all) of the NAV communities, user groups and Blobs. Get involved, connect, help and be helped.  Here area few of our favorite locations:
