The company was choosing among several products. But finally the decision was made to implement Microsoft Dynamics NAV 4.0. Comparatively low cost of the ownership and high degree of necessary business processes coverage served as the main preconditions.



The implementation project was divided into two main stages. Financial module that included localization of the bookkeeping and fiscal accounting was introduced in the first place. It allowed to perform accounting in the system long before the manufacturing line was launched.

The second stage was about logistics and manufacturing automation. Logistics business processes included the whole commodity turnover cycle, from the materials and components order till complete goods shipment from the warehouse. Consolidated planning on the base of sales prognosis was carried out as well as records of completion and orders scheduling in prepack shops and on the final assembly line, load management of the final assembly line.

On the second stage the ultimate goal of the automation was reached at using only 90% of standard functionality. Substantial development took place only in the CRP (Capacity Resource Planning) module, the so called «Master leveling line» was developed.


«Characteristic feature of the project was the fact that the implementation was carried out along with business development on the territory of Ukraine, what allowed to build implementation logic, using standard functionality with minimum revisions. It allowed to completely avoid possible risks, always present in this type of implementation procedure». - Kirill RudnevSales Director, SMART business



Due to the project all aspects of the company’s activities are now automated: finance, logistics, sales, manufacture. Ukrainian localization and management reporting according to the international standards were implemented. Aside from the international standards complete solution fully met the requirements of the Ukrainian legislation in the sphere of bookkeeping and fiscal accounting.
