What is Microsoft Dynamcis NAV?

Just as the name suggests, it is a dynamic platform - an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system designed to give businesses greater control over their financials, simplify their supply chain, manufacturing, and daily operations. PrintVis’ original legacy system, NAVision, is the actual precursor to Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

NAV Provides:

  • Financial management and accounting - Completely manage your cash, assets, and banking.
  • Supply chain, manufacturing, and operations - Track and manage your production, inventory, orders, and vendors.
  • Marketing, sales, and service - Manage your campaigns, sales opportunities, contacts, and service contracts.
  • Project management - Create estimates, track projects, and manage your capacity.
  • Business intelligence and reporting - Get real-time visibility and analytics to track performance and to make decisions with insight.
  • Multi-currency - Compete globally with multi-currency and language capabilities.

NAV is quick to implement and easy to use, and gives you what you need to support your growth ambitions.

NAV brings together all your business applications, data, documents, and devices, with your people at the center, helping them make the most of their time.

From server to cloud—desktop to mobile—Microsoft Dynamics gives you one familiar user experience to automate your business, help increase sales, enhance collaboration, and impress your customers.

What is PrintVis?

We have added our print-specific layer to the Dynamics NAV solution (now used by over 110,000 businesses worldwide). Print has some differences from other types of manufacturing, but there are also many commonalities.

This strategy allows PrintVis to focus on what makes print unique and let the core ERP functionality be handled by Microsoft based on feedback from a huge customer base and a large partner community.

Because PrintVis has created the print-specific functionality right within the NAV environment, when you purchase PrintVis you get NAV built right in – they are not separate systems. This is one of our core strengths – our business model is actually more stable than “integration.”

PrintVis is the “print MIS” (management information system) that is embedded directly into NAV, and together they create a single solution for the worldwide graphics community, backed by the world’s most trusted software company, Microsoft.

What exactly is PrintVis?

Simply put, PrintVis is the ultimate solution for the graphics industry. Built directly on and powered by Microsoft Dynamics NAV, PrintVis handles all the tasks and processes your company requires every day. We deliver a standard core software solution, drastically reducing downtime and expensive consulting hours caused by endless customization and scope creep.

Of course, we can handle any modifications that might be needed – we have hundreds of customers around the world, with graphics businesses of all sizes and types. Through our Partner program we team up with NAV experts in your area so you can get local support on our globally-proven system.

PrintVis gives you a sturdy, ERP platform for your business, no matter what size it might be today. Into this we’ve developed the print-specific MIS functionality you’ve been looking for – to control all the little details – Papers. Presses. Substrates. Inks. Coatings. Adhesives. Gripper margins and grain direction. Customer proofs and delivery dates. Web to print and computer to plate. We have a thorough understanding of your industry, including the many print sub-verticals such as packaging, label, newspaper, finishing and more.

PrintVis will not only show you all the fundamentals–your customers, your schedules, your production and your workers, but also the metrics that tell you how to keep your business on track. And perhaps, where alarm bells should be ringing.

PrintVis is not just software – it’s a better way to run your business and a solution which you will never outgrow.
