When you have a lot of resources (hundreds or thousands), you usually have a problem with detail analysis. Maybe, the most important question is when you have to buy new resource? I know, the new resources is prettier, but are you really need new resources. Is your old resource still good?
Using “smart” analysis in BI4Construction, you can make a right business decision. You can make smart comparison of actual costs of each resources per hour (or mileage, or…) in each cost group with cost of e.g. loan or leasing installment costs.
You can see what maintenance cost analytically for old resources is. You can also see what is you additional fuel or oil cost for old resources in comparison with new one. You have realistic cost of staying time for old resources because maintenance periods…
With all of these details, you can always make a right decision. This is usually requirement for big construction companies with lot of trucks and other machinery.
I got this book before one month for review and I did not want to hurry with review. First of all, I wanted to read the entire book carefully. After the reading of this book, at least I can say that I did learn some new things in NAV.
This book cover all important parts of developing in NAV. For the C/AL beginners, in first half of the book, it gives some valid basics examples on how to use C/AL. Also for the experienced developers, there is still a lot of useful informations in second half of the book. There is over the hundred examples showed in recipes form. The book is a real ‘cookbook’ without a lot of text, but with a lot easy to use recipes how to solve problem in NAV.
There is also part about NAV administering with examples about security, administering in SQL and administering NAV Server. You can also find examples about integration with Office and other Windows applications and how to access and update NAV from outside of NAV using Web Services. Maybe I expected more where C# is used to do something, but there is still very useful book. If I just trying to find a lack of book, this is Microsoft fault; because we got this book about NAV2013 in September and we got NAV2013R2 in October.
If you need to do something that you don’t do on a weekly basis, there is a good chance you find something useful to start with in this book. On the end, I really can give the best recommendations from me for this book. I think this book will be the standard in all NAV developers’ book collection. Maybe, you cannot learn to cook with this book, but you will surely learn something new about NAV.
