Xperit Solutions Case Study: Dynamics NAV Reports Upgrade
Partnership with Professional Simplanova Team Helped to Upgrade Dynamics NAV Reports on Time
Challenge: Many Reports Needed To Be Upgraded In a Very Short Amount of Time
Xperit Solutions from The Netherlands is a Dynamics NAV partner which has an Add-On (Xsuite) that is mainly focused on Retail- and Production Businesses in The Netherlands. Besides customers using this Add-On, company also has customers in other branches of Business like fashion, surgery equipment and government.
At the moment Xperit Solutions has over 80 customers and growing fast with one new NAV implementation every month on average. There are about 15 people working at Xperit Solutions, but they are still growing and looking for new employees now.
The problem Xperit Solutions faced is similar to other NAV partners that do upgrades: too many reports needed to be upgraded in a very short amount of time. Company simply didn’t have the resources available to get it done fast enough.
Solution: Reports Upgrade on Time using Simplanova Report Upgrade Service
At first Xperit Solutions were looking for a reporting tool to automatically upgrade reports from Classic to RDLC by themselves. They tried to build own tool, but this was not their core business and took too much time to develop. Xperit Solutions found that Simplanova has it’s own Dynamics NAV report builder, but finally decided to start with Simplanova service to Upgrade Reports instead.
During Dynamics NAV reports upgrade project :
- Best practices and experience of Simplanova developers was used to ensure the reports follow the highest quality standards;
- Automated NAV report upgrade tools was used to make reports’ upgrades faster and meet a project time limit;
- Data masking tool was used to have correct data and to avoid conflicts related to confidential client business information;
- Simplanova dedicated team communicated directly and provided quick responses to questions and quotes.
The main advantages of work with Simplanova are the direct communication, high quality of work and quick responses to questions and quotes.
Direct Communication and High Quality of Work Led to Successful Delivery of the NAV Report Upgrade Project on Time
The partnership with Simplanova gave Xperit Solutions possibility to successfully deliver the Dynamics NAV report upgrade project on time.
30 Xperit Solutions customer reports were upgraded from Dynamics NAV version 4.00 SP3 NL to 9.00 NL in time and fully tested afterwards. The project took 57 hours total. Automated tools were used to ensure that upgraded reports perform well and the reports were upgraded in shortest time possible.
Simplanova’s progress update reports were sent regularly to keep Xperit Solutions informed about the project’s milestones. Since it was critical to meet the deadlines of their customer report upgrade project, Simplanova’s project managers had to be prepared to react as soon as possible.
To ensure the reasonable period of time to finish all acceptance tests by Xperit Solutions, 1 month support period for the project was offered.
Would Michael Glashouwer recommend using Simplanova services? “Definitely!”
