With every new version, Microsoft addresses the growing and changing needs of the business by bringing improvements via the latest tech trends. Thus so, Dynamics NAV 2018 is focused on easier integration with other Microsoft products, simpler design, additional intuitive and interactive functionalities as well as compatibility with a variety of devices.
