It can both save user time and reduce data double entries.

In this article by Gordon Du, author of Mastering SQL Queries for SAP Business One, we will see how to work with User-Defined Values.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV: Customizing Relationship Management

by Mark Brummel | May 2011 | Enterprise Articles Microsoft

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 is a very complete ERP package, but unlike other ERP packages it has a design capable of providing an open structure and a development platform. The idea is to provide 80% of the solution out of the box and allow the other 20% to be designed by qualified business application developers.

Relationship Management software is a typical result of what ERP applications have achieved. Relationship management has been part of Microsoft Dynamics since version 2.0 and was dramatically changed and improved in version 3.0. The current Microsoft Dynamics NAV RM software is mostly the same as in that version except for the Microsoft Outlook integration that keeps changing in every version. In this article by Mark Brummel, author of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Application Design, we will take a look at customizing relationship management.
