Maybe you’re already familiar with Dynamics NAV on your tablet. Well, things just got even more flexible. You can now experience the power and simplicity of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Universal App on your preferred iOS, Android or Windows device – be it phone, phablet, tablet, laptop, or desktop – it’s all up to you. Switch to your favorite device on the go, during meetings, in the office, at home on the couch using the same app, accessing your Dynamics NAV business data from everywhere.
NOTE: We have lowered the app’s minimum requirement on Windows devices to 1GB.
Download and install Dynamics NAV from the Windows Store, App Store, or Google Play. You sign in using your usual credentials and the app connects to your Dynamics NAV 2016 server, on premise or in the cloud. If you already have Dynamics NAV v.1.1 installed, this will automatically be updated to v2.0 (unless you specifically selected not to update automatically).
Navigate your business data using a fast and fluid interface which leverages design concepts from modern Windows and Office 365, whilst remaining distinctly Dynamics NAV. Do more on the go with capabilities such as send to Excel or Office 365, up-to-date charts and KPIs, emailing of sales quotes and invoices, and shoot and attach pictures with your camera.
Your executives, sales field, service technicians, warehouse workers and many more can now get access to the data they need from the device they prefer. Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 comes ready for small businesses with the Small Business role. For midsized businesses seeking custom solutions for various roles, talk to your Partner.
Almost all content within the app consists of application pages coming from your Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 server, and they are rendered using our Tablet or Phone client, designed exclusively for touch.
This makes development for tablets and phones similar to development for any other Microsoft Dynamics NAV client! Create new pages or customize existing pages in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Development Environment on your workstation, and it is ready for iOS, Android, and Windows. Test your role-tailored solution directly on your workstation using the Tablet or Phone client running in the browser. You don’t even need to go out and purchase a bunch of tablets of different sizes, versions and platforms.
Since the Tablet and Phone clients are based on Web client technology, you get to reuse your investments in application objects, business logic, and modern client add-ins, and you administer, license, secure, and maintain it in precisely the same way.
- If you have Microsoft Dynamics NAV app v1.1, you cannot connect to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 until you have updated to Microsoft Dynamics NAV Universal App to v2.0.
- If you have Microsoft Dynamics NAV app v2.0 on the tablet, you can connect to both Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 and Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016.
- If you have Microsoft Dynamics NAV v2.0 on the phone, you can only connect to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016.
