Manage Your Business More Effectively
Microsoft Business Notification provides easy-to-use functionality within Microsoft Dynamics-Navision to generate e-mail messages to your employees, suppliers, partners, and customers informing and alerting them of critical business conditions. Microsoft Business Notification helps you to improve management control of your business and the effectiveness of your business processes. With Microsoft Business Notification, you are always aware of changing business conditions, and you can make sure that all operations keep on track. You can use any of the templates included with Microsoft Business Notification, and also set up your own alerts based on the way you like to run your business.
Make Better Use of Your Time
You can focus on the information that matters to you, so you don’t waste time searching for it among the copious amounts of data generated by your business every day. You can set Microsoft Business Notification to alert you to events that are important to your work, so you can manage your supply chain processes and other business areas with more impact. Similarly, you can direct notifications to go automatically to your employees and business partners to keep them informed, so you don’t have to spend the time manually finding the information and sending it to them.
Understand Events in Your Supply Chain
Microsoft Business Notification can help you keep abreast of your supply chain, so you can be in better control of your business. You can receive alerts to tell you whether goods have been delivered or whether they are late, or you can be updated on adjustments made to a bill-of-materials, so you can change your orders accordingly. An alert can also be set up to warn you and your vendors that a crucial item will soon be out of stock in your warehouse, so the vendors can replenish your supply, or you can make other plans if you need to.
Integrate Business Processes
Microsoft Business Notification helps you increase the value of your investment in your business solution by bringing important business data to your awareness. You can use all of the rich data within your Microsoft Navision solution as a tool to help you manage and improve business performance and productivity. You have immediate access to important information that concerns you, from any area of the business—without the cost of purchasing and implementing an additional solution. You can, for example, improve financial management by setting up a notification to alert you when your cash reserve has reached a certain level.
Microsoft Navision uses dependable, standard architecture to leverage your business data. Microsoft Business Notification integrates with Microsoft Navision through Extensible Markup Language (XML) ports in Microsoft Navision, and creates events and triggers in Microsoft Navision C/SIDE Application Language (C/AL) code. Upon activation of a trigger, the C/AL code sends data defined in the XML port to Microsoft Business Notification to make it create a notification.
Resolve Issues Before They Cause Problems
Microsoft Business Notification makes it possible for you to be aware of business-critical events anywhere in your organization, and to prevent problems long before they might occur. For example, you can receive notifications to tell you if there is a delay in shipping or production, or when the inventory on crucial items sinks beyond a certain level. You can then plan any necessary changes to the business processes in a timely manner and initiate any communications to customers, suppliers, and business partners.
