Reports made easy
Speakers: Jan Sillemann & Michael Nielsen
Remember Directions last year, when we showed you how to convert a "classic" report in less than a minute?

We can still do that!

Since then, we have improved our ForNAV Designer with many new features to increase your productivity when working with reports in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Most recently, we have introduced a set of brand new reports, with improved code and several designs to choose from.

At Directions 2017, we are introducing our new solution for Dynamics 365. Don’t miss it! If you can recognize one or more of these challenges, you should definitely join our session:

Remaining Competitive in a Customer-Centric World
Speaker: Giuseppe Ianni
Micro revolutions in the technology space take place every 12-18 months. The need for digital transformation is clear; the ‘how’ often less so. But for Dynamics VARs and ISVs, Microsoft has given us an engine that can power all business operations: Dynamics 365. And Sana has leveraged that technology to architect a solution we can bring to market together, enabling our clients to leverage their ERP and optimize operations online.

Hear how Sana strategizes with our partners to win business and how our single-stack approach empowers our clients and Dynamics VARs alike.
