Financial Setups in NAV

Get under the hood to understand the inner workings of financial setups in Microsoft Dynamics NAV.  This class covers all the basics you need to understand for how the financial management area can be configured.  Whether you’re new to NAV, a prospective customer deciding if NAV is the right fit for your company, a Controller or CFO who is new to a company already using NAV, or even an experienced NAV user who wants to know how to maximize your software, this class will get you the foundation you need to make important configuration decisions regarding your ERP software.

Focus on financial considerations like understanding and using posting groups, choosing dimensions, set up of master records for customers, vendors, and items, why number series are important, and what the options are for financial reporting.  Understand what options are available to you related to budgeting, intercompany transactions and consolidations, and month end close and get a tour of best practices related to journal entries, accounts payable, and accounts receivable.

Posting Groups and Dimensions in NAV

Posting Groups and Dimensions are important features of your NAV2015 product that work in the background to get all of your company’s transactions to the right place in your database. Often a set-and-forget feature, they are also frequently misunderstood. Find out what the differences are between posting groups and dimensions and how you can use them both in different ways to gain control, consistency, accuracy, and efficiency in your financial postings and make your financial reporting not only flexible but powerful at the same time.

Using hands-on exercises in an online NAV database, you’ll get to try different configurations in multiple scenarios to really understand how both posting groups and dimensions behave. Get a chance to see how they both flow through your accounting system from beginning data entry to final financial statement production. This class is your opportunity to finally understand posting groups and dimensions in Microsoft Dynamics NAV and how they can help you and your business.
