Business central casestudy

A leading wholesaler of fragrance, skincare, hair-care, and cosmetics has decided for NAV 2009 to NAV 2018 upgrade for enhancing their overall operational efficiency. They were having 35 years of experience in the beauty industry and serving their products to a number of brands like Calvin Klein, Davidoff, Vera Wang, Marc Jacobs, and Sarah Jessica Parker. With a warehouse based in the UK, they are ready to source any products and deliver them to the destination within the UK and abroad. Also, they are available in trade shows like Spring and Autumn Fairs at NEC Birmingham, Cosmoprof in Bologna, and the TFWA show in Cannes to showcase their wide variety of premium products.

What are The
Business Challenges


The company was not satisfied with the output of Dynamics NAV 2009. They primarily need an ERP solution to manage finance, but NAV09 lacks several aspects.

Facing difficulties in dealing with the expansion in business operations in terms of transaction volume. Also, they cannot manage the increase in workload due to the high volume of business operations.

NAV09 starts to perform slower in completing the tasks like opening ledgers and exporting data in excel.

Due to the new norms by the UK government, the MTD (Making Tax Digital) compliance became mandatory, and NAV09 was not built for this.
