“There is no doubt in my mind that after an exhaustive search, Microsoft Dynamics NAV was the best solution for us. There is also no doubt in my mind how lucky we were to have made the right decision in going with Beck over another NAV partner, as Beck really made the difference. NAV is a great platform that has a really strong core, but what separates it from other ERP systems in its class is its ability to be customized. The caveat here is that this ability only goes as far as the capabilities of your partner’s developers. That is where Beck is set apart. I had the notion when we chose Beck that they had the best ability to ensure NAV did what we needed NAV to do, and after launch I am only more convinced that any other NAV partner in the States would have fallen short of our goals…except Beck. We are very grateful for what our Beck team has done, and continues to do, for us!” – Andy Borgmann, Chief Technology Officer
