Microsoft Dynamics NAV-based food management application to be enhanced with advanced analytics

 

Anglia Business Solutions is integrating analytics into its LINKFresh application for the food management industry using Zap’s Business Analytics for Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

 

LINKFresh is a vertical solution based on Microsoft Dynamics NAV designed to meet the specific needs of the food supply chain sector, such as tracking, tracing, and costing products in real time throughout the entire supply chain.


Overcoming common challenges

 

“The fresh food industry faces real profitability challenges due to the very short, pressured supply chains associated with perishable products, and the highly competitive nature of the industry,” said Anglia managing director, David Hurley.

 

“Suppliers get so caught up in the challenges of day-to-day activities that they can’t always see the big picture. Business intelligence exposes trends, opportunities, and issues that would otherwise be missed, enabling suppliers to maximize the value of their efforts. They can instantly see analytics such as customer, product and consignment profitability as well as grower yields, which they can use to optimize their business potential.

 

“We chose Zap’s Business Analytics after evaluating vendors over the past two years. Zap provides very strong integration with NAV, particularly for vertical applications, which is of utmost importance for our packaged NAV add-on. The company is also committed to innovation and can support us globally as we expand.”

 

Dashboard insight preserves NAV customisations

 

Anglia said Zap’s Business Analytics for Microsoft Dynamics NAV is an out-of-the-box solution that turns NAV transactions to insight, empowering employees to make a difference to performance. It puts dashboards, key performance indicators (KPIs), scorecards, reports, and analysis into the hands of business users. Even heavily customised vertical solutions such as LINKFresh are easily accommodated, with a wizard-driven application that brings through NAV customisations and security instantly, according to the firm.

 

“We are strongly committed to enhancing vertical solutions built on the Microsoft Dynamics platform with advanced analytics,” added Garth D. Laird, president of Zap.

 

While Steve Zangari, Zap’s UK general manager said: “Zap’s collaboration with Anglia is proving very successful in a short space of time. With multiple Anglia customers already purchasing Zap's Business Analytics, we are looking forward to entering a more strategic phase of our partnership.”
