  • 2. Introduction to Microsoft Dynamics® NAV 2009Marketing Marketing is a powerful sales tool for companies with sales and marketing teams. The marketing features of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 are integrated with Microsoft Outlook. The marketing application area gives the user complete and accurate information to improve the quality of every business interaction with a contact. For detailed information on marketing functionality in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, refer to the "Relationship Management in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009" course. Contacts With Contact Management, users can maintain an overview of contacts and record contact information for all business relations. For each contact, they can specify the individual contact people at the contact company. The system automatically alerts users if they enter contact information that already exists. Users can categorize contacts based on their own profiling criteria. Contact Management allows users to personalize their approach to contacts. To view a contact card, go to: Departments > Sales & Marketing > Marketing > Lists > Contacts. From the Contacts lists, double-click a contact to view it. FIGURE 9.1 CONTACT CARD IN CRONUS9-2 Microsoft Official Training Materials for Microsoft Dynamics ® Your use of this content is subject to your current services agreement
  • 3. Chapter 9: Browse other Application Areas Use the contact card to record information about contacts. Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 is integrated with Microsoft Telephony Application Programming Interface (TAPI). By using TAPI compliant telecom devices, users can call a contact simply by clicking a button on the Communication tab of the contact card (the small telephone icon next to the telephone or mobile phone number). Contacts are tightly integrated with the Sales application area. This means that, for example, users can issue quotes to prospects or create sales documents for specific contact persons. Contact Search The Contact Search feature allows users to find a contact in the database even if they cannot remember the exact details of the contact. Even if users misspell a search string, they will still find the contact. This feature is available from the following places: • Sales & Marketing menu (under Marketing) • Wizards • Contact list • Contact card To limit the search, users can search across different fields, such as: • Name • Address • Telephone No. • E-mail Address Users can also search across different tables, such as: • Contact • Interaction Log Entry • To-do • Opportunity • Rlshp. Mgt. Comment Line Alternatively, users can search across all tables.

  • 4. Introduction to Microsoft Dynamics® NAV 2009 Tasks Task Management allows users to organize campaign, marketing, and sales tasks. Users can perform the following functions with Task Management: • Create to-do lists that can be linked to contacts and/or campaigns. • Assign tasks, composed of several to-dos, to other users or teams of users recorded in the program. The No. of To-dos window allows users to view existing to-dos in a number of ways. For example, they can choose to view the number of to-dos or the contact number involved, grouped by campaign, salesperson, team, or contact. Contact Classification Contact Classification classifies customers based on criteria specified by the user, for example, to group contacts in terms of revenue. This feature helps users do the following: • Plan critical information for campaigns • Target contacts more specifically • Streamline sales and marketing messages A contact rating system helps users set up specifically tailored ratings which reflect, for example, the importance or loyalty of customers, vendors, and partners. Users can have the ratings displayed on the contact card for quick reference and update. Campaigns Campaign Management allows users to organize campaigns based on market segments they create and offers users benefits in the following areas: • Segmenting contacts • Reusing existing segments • Mail-merging identified segments Users can segment contacts based on specific criteria, such as sales, contact profiles, and interactions. Additionally, they can perform the following: • Reuse existing segments by specifying whether these segments are to be updated every time new information on the contact is entered or not • Freeze the group for follow-up activities, such as direct mailing.9-4 Microsoft Official Training Materials for Microsoft Dynamics ® Your use of this content is subject to your current services agreement
  • 5. Chapter 9: Browse other Application Areas • Mail-merge the identified segment with a Microsoft® Office Word document or send any other file type to the contacts in the segment. • Send copies of the same document to people of different nationalities, each of them receiving the document in their native language. Information about a campaign is entered on the campaign card. Document Management and Interaction Log Document Management and Interaction Log gives users the following benefits: • Logging interactions with contact • Keeping track of documents • Retrieving documents Users can log the interactions with contacts, such as a telephone call, a meeting, or a letter. If an interaction contains a document, users can save it under the relevant contact, and Document Management helps them keep track of the document in question. Microsoft Dynamics NAV documents that are sent to a contact, such as sales orders or quotes, can be logged and retrieved to be used at a later stage. Users get an accurate and up-to-date account of all interactions with the contact. Opportunities With Opportunity Management, users can keep track of sales opportunities. As a result, salespeople have an overview of what is in the pipeline and can plan ahead accordingly. FIGURE 9.2 OPPORTUNITIES WINDOW SHOWING MULTIPLE FILTER OPTIONS Microsoft Official Training Materials for Microsoft Dynamics ® 9-5Your use of this content is subject to your current services agreement
  • 6. Introduction to Microsoft Dynamics® NAV 2009 Opportunity Management helps users divide a sales process into different stages. For example, opportunities can be managed in the Opportunities window, which allows users to view existing opportunities in a number of ways, such as by their value (calculated in a variety of ways), or grouped by: • Campaign • Salesperson • Contact Outlook Client Integration Most employees in sales and marketing build relationships with their contacts using calendar and task management tools, and much of the external communication takes place through Microsoft® Office Outlook®. Therefore, integration between Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 and Outlook is vital to the CRM users performance. With the Outlook Client Integration feature, users can perform the following tasks: • Schedule meetings in Outlook. • View the to-dos in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 before the meeting. • Log the meeting in the Interaction Log Entries window as an interaction. • Plan and execute assigned to-dos with the scheduling tool. • Create activities for customers and contact persons. Whenever information, such as a to-do or a contact, is entered, this information is automatically updated in Outlook. There is no need to update the same information twice in two different applications. E-Mail Logging for Microsoft Exchange Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 is integrated with the Microsoft Outlook e-mail service. All e-mail correspondence, both inbound and outbound, can be logged automatically or manually in Microsoft Dynamics NAV and can be shared with colleagues. This ensures that they have instant access to the latest communications with business contacts. This solution is server-based and requires Microsoft Exchange Server. Making the solution server-based ensures that e-mails are kept in their natural environment instead of lowering performance by storing the e-mails on the application server. The integration with Outlook further allows users to use the built-in features in Outlook. For example, they can set up rules in Outlook that direct certain types of e-mail to specific folders for subsequent, automatic logging in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009.9-6 Microsoft Official Training Materials for Microsoft Dynamics ® Your use of this content is subject to your current services agreement

  • 8. Introduction to Microsoft Dynamics® NAV 2009 Job Tasks Job tasks are used to set up, manage, and budget a job. Users can set up the job tasks almost like the chart of accounts. Job planning in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 has two layers. The first layer consists of job task lines, which are mandatory to enable users to post the job. The second layer consists of planning lines, which specify the detailed use of resources, items, and various G/L expenses. To view job tasks, go to: Departments > Lists > Jobs > Related Information > Job > Job Task Lines. FIGURE 9.4 JOB TASK LINES EXISTING IN CRONUS The integration with the Sales application area allows users to invoice jobs as any other sales invoice. Job Journals Job journals are used for the following tasks: • Posting job consumption resources, items, and general ledger resources. • Applying job ledger and item ledger entries. • Assigning entries to phases, tasks, and steps. • Reconciling resources. As a job progresses, there is consumption of materials, resources, and other expenses that must be posted to the job. Users can post consumption in three ways: in a job journal, in a Job G/L journal, or from a purchase invoice.9-8 Microsoft Official Training Materials for Microsoft Dynamics ® Your use of this content is subject to your current services agreement
  • 9. Chapter 9: Browse other Application Areas Project members will post consumption of resources and items in the job journal, and the account receivables administrators will post purchased items and services in a vendor invoice or in a job G/L journal. Resources With the Resources application area, users define resources, which can either be personnel or machines. Users can link the individual resources to resource groups. This functionality contains all the features that are used with a companys resource management: • Individual resources • Resource groups • Capacity planning • Resource journals • Reports • Registers Resources functionality is a powerful tool for optimal management of personnel and/or machines. Resources are set up and maintained on resource cards. Any number of resource cards can be assigned to a resource group. Resource Capacity Users might need to increase the capacity of resources, such as technicians, regularly. A resources capacity indicates how much of the resource is available in a specified period. Users can assign or modify capacities to their individual resources or to resource groups. For example, for employees, users can enter the available hours . For machines, users can enter the production capacity for a time frame. It is possible to enter capacity by day, week, month, quarter, year, or accounting period.

  • 17. Chapter 9: Browse other Application Areas Production Orders Production orders are business documents that represent planned or ongoing manufacturing operations in machine or work centers. They may change status as they progresses through different planning stages, and once posted, they disappear and become historic entries in the same way as purchase and sales documents. To view a production order, go to; Departments > Manufacturing > Execution > Lists > Released Prod. Orders. Double-click on a released production order to view its details. FIGURE 9.10 RELEASED PRODUCTION ORDER FOR 27 BICYCLES The underlying production BOMs and routing provide the component and time requirements that govern production order ending times in a balanced production schedule of multiple ongoing operations. Production orders and component purchase orders are often generated by the materials requirement system (MRP) as the result of a calculated supply plan to fulfill demand such as sales orders. Note that there are three types of production orders (Planned, Firm Planned, and Released). Planned and Firm Planned production orders are part of the planning and forecasting process; in other words, the amount of materials, resources, and time that are expected to be consumed and the number of items to be produced within a given production period. Released production orders are approved orders. This means that it is cleared and ready for production. It is at this point where the consumption of materials, resources, and time are recorded.
