Warehousing Boot Camp
Class ID: NWHBC
At New View Strategies we are more committed than ever to helping you realize more value from your Dynamics 365 Business Central / NAV system.
With the ongoing uncertainty surrounding COVID 19, we are unsure when we can continue our in-person boot camps. In the meantime, we are converting our classes to an online format and will schedule this class when we have enough students. If you would like to participate in the next class, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information and your class interest. Thank you for your flexibility.
Just getting started with Warehousing in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central / Dynamics NAV? Looking into Advanced Warehousing and wondering if you should make the move or want to avoid costly mistakes? Are you wondering if your Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central / Dynamics NAV system is set up in the best way for your warehouse? Would you like to solve some of those pesky issues with your distribution and supply chain processes? We have the answers you’re looking for. We’ll help you understand both levels of Warehousing in the system so you can decide what level you need and what will then be required of your team, or if you’re already using Warehousing, where you may not be optimized for your inventory flow and how to resolve the gaps.

The first two days are spent on navigation, basic setups, and transaction flow, and includes an exercise to configure a warehouse and process the transactions.
