TVision Technology http://www.tvisiontech.co.uk) has won the contract to implement Microsoft Dynamics NAV at Solventis, UK based distributors of petrochemical solvents throughout Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, Americas and Asia.
Solventis (http://www.solventis.net/) wanted to combine their bespoke stock control and distribution system with their finance and accounting system into one integrated solution. Dynamics NAV provides strong distribution and stock control functionality as standard as well as providing a finance system that meets the needs of both the UK and Belgium.
“Our existing systems meant that finance was separate to the operational system so we had disparate pools of data,” comments Adrian Hancock, Finance Director of Solventis. “By implementing a single system we will improve process efficiency and reporting as all the data will be in one place.”
Solventis was also keen to move from the bespoke operational system to a packaged solution that benefited from on-going investment and development. As Adrian Hancock says, “Bespoke is great as it fits the needs; however, there is a risk involved. Dynamics NAV provides all the fit we need and has a clear future.”
Dynamics NAV will provide the necessary distribution and stock control functionality and having previously used Dynamics GP (formerly Great Plains) for its accounts, Solventis is already familiar with the Dynamics platform. Adrian Hancock explains, “The decision to step up to Dynamics NAV was an easy conclusion, we knew it had strong functionality for both distribution and finance, it has commitment from Microsoft and we were able to off-set our investment in GP against the cost of the new NAV licence. Of the four Dynamics ERP solutions, NAV has the most references in our industry and that was also important to us.”
Once Solventis had determined that NAV was the product, the company needed to select the partner to implement it. “Initially we used the Internet to search for suitable partners, TVision immediately caught our eye as they specialise purely in Dynamics NAV and were local to our Guildford office and so we invited them along with three others to present to us,” says Adrian Hancock. “TVision impressed us with their knowledge of Dynamics NAV and the use of Microsoft's SureStep methodology. Combined, this gave the most confidence that our project would be delivered successfully.”
Founded in 2002, Solventis has steadily grown yet remains true to the original founding principles of offering a truly personal level of service combined with highly competitive prices. The integration and functionality of Dynamics NAV will enable them to improve the processing and visibility of business data, delivering significantly improved experiences for customers, suppliers and staff.
The implementation project is set to go live early next year. Richard Thompson, MD of TVision comments, “We pride ourselves on our expertise with NAV and project delivery so it is great that this was recognised and we are pleased to gain Solventis as a valued client.”
