Implementation of Dynamics 365 Business Central Cloud


The company was established in 1948 and is currently a world-leading manufacturer of textile products mainly for the defense market. The company is known for its world-class high quality and robust military products serving the UK Ministry of Defense and other international military agencies. They are working to establish itself as one of the UK experts in designing and manufacturing CBRN clothing.

What are The
Business Challenges


The company was not satisfied with the inventory valuation of their current NAV version. They were looking for a NAV to Dynamics 365 Business Central cloud ERP upgrade solution to manage finance, supply chain, and inventory departments.

They were facing difficulties to tally their inventory with the trial balance of any financial period. This issue was impacting the financial performance of the overall business.

The company could not match and manage the actual WIP (work-in-progress) figure and BIN-wise inventory.

Also, they were experiencing issues matching the figures between product consumption and product production.

Due to the mandatory submission of VAT returns to HMRC, they were facing issues with their NAV version as it was not compatible with the new norms of the UK government for all VAT returns. Because the new rules states that the submission has to be done electronically.

I recommend Dynamics Square as a provider of Microsoft Dynamics 365. We were using a very old version of NAV which was time-consuming and not user-friendly. Nitesh called me to offer the services of Dynamics Square as a partner, and it was a good decision to change and upgrade to Dynamics 365 Business Central Cloud. At first, my team was hesitant to use the upgraded version of ERP, but after training and testing, we have 6+ months of good experience. With the upgraded system, we are happy with our decision. The service provided by Dynamics Square has been great during the implementation, and Nitesh has continued to keep in touch with us for follow-up.
