New Anveo Release: Make Your Dynamics NAV Available Anywhere|Anytime

Anveo has announced that its Client Suite 8.0 will be available for download on March 14 at the Anveo Partner Portal.

Anveo 8.0 offers new features for mobile processing, anywhere and at anytime. One of the features of the new release is Extended Synchronization Management: “Instead of fully synchronizing to and from; now there is the ability to choose when to send data from the Anveo mobile app and when to send to NAV,” said the company in a statement.

Data is defined and sent one way from the Anveo mobile app to Microsoft Dynamics NAV and processed immediately in the background.

After sending the data, the user can continue working with the app since processing by the Anveo Delta Server did not take place. “This gives your business the competitive advantage over other businesses, especially in time-critical processes,” company officials stated. A push notification can also be to the user to confirm that the data processing was successful.

New App Delivers MS Dynamics Marketplace to Partner Websites

A new Microsoft Dynamics cloud marketplace website app from goERPcloud is designed to enable for Dynamics partners to digitally enhance their sales and marketing efforts with a centrally managed on-demand ERP cloud trial and a catalogue of more than 180 ISV solutions.

The goERPcloud Marketplace App can be customized by Dynamics VARs to quickly implement on their own websites, giving their customers direct access to a catalogue of add-on solutions, guided ISV software demos and on-demand Dynamics ERP 30-day trials, the company describes.

“We’re very proud of the goERPcloud Marketplace App,” said Jeffrey DeMaria, product manager for RoseASP, the organization powering goERPcloud. “Our goal has always been to help customers succeed by pairing them with the right solution and the right partner, and the new app allows us to do that in a way that is unmatched.”
