Application Developments

Some of the ‘game-changing’ features we believe will significantly benefit SME’s include:

  • A personalization tool has been built into NAV 2018. With a few clicks, a user can easily customize their workspace for their specific role optimizing performance.
  • Users can now import payroll transaction files via the Ceridian extension. The extension contains sample demos providing the option to test new functions.
