The broad web services capabilities of the latest Dynamics NAV and AX applications have accelerated demand for Dynamics ERP and web solutions integration services. The challenge for Dynamics partners is maintaining web development competencies in-house in the face of changing customer demand.
Adacta, a Microsoft partner focused on solutions for the logistics industry, was asked by one of its customers to build a web solution for an online shipment booking that could be smoothly integrated with a NAV 2009 backend for data retrieval and storage. "1ClickFactory WebServices offered a strong technical background in both Dynamics solutions development as well as web technologies that proved they were a good match for this project," states Vytautas Dženkauskas, Development Manager of Adacta.
Web services simplified the process of integrating the customer's other systems with Microsoft Dynamics NAV and allowed easy communication and data exchange in a secured environment. "Our customer started to leverage new web services capabilities after it was introduced in Dynamics NAV. The company had already integrated part of its IT systems through web services with Dynamics NAV and had plans to move the existing web solution to the same technology", explains Mr. Dženkauskas.
Adacta entrusted 1ClickFactory WebServices to build the web solution on ASP.NET 4.0 and MVC 3, which enabled online booking for container shipment for their customer using Dynamics NAV web services. "Although the customer was using a similar web solution to fulfill their business need, our common goal was to move them onto the new technology to help them experience the benefits of new Dynamics NAV version enhancements and to ensure smooth and lower-cost solution maintenance in the future," adds Mr. Dženkauskas.
The company had previously worked with 1ClickFactory on Microsoft Dynamics upgrade projects and experienced a highly professional approach to upgrades and to the partnership itself. According to Mr. Dženkauskas, "1ClickFactory WebServices specialists represented a good mix of knowledge in both Dynamics solutions development as well as web technologies, which was one of the key reasons we entrusted them with this project. In addition, we were looking forward to a long-term partnership because our goal was not to just get a working website, but to be able to benefit from qualified and quick support afterwards. The outcome of our partnership with 1ClickFactory has met all our expectations."
The solution was delivered on time and in a high quality. "We got the working solution in less than a month and, most importantly, on the date agreed before starting the project," emphasizes Mr. Dženkauskas from Adacta.
