About Navige

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central consultant

Freelance Business Central consultant

Nadat ik 15 jaar gewerkt had als Navision consultant bij diverse bedrijven ben ik, Gé Baltessen, in 2011 gestart als freelance Microsoft Dynamics 365 BC consultant. Ik werk onder de naam Navige. Mijn eerste project als freelance consultant was voor Nature’s Pride. De eerste klus zou 10 dagen duren, maar resulteerde in een omvangrijke opdracht van 9 maanden. Daarna ben ik werkzaam geweest als consultant bij veel bedrijven in diverse branches en bij diverse Dynamics 365 Business Central Partners, waaronder SPG Pre-Series Tooling & Prototyping B.V., NLW-Groep N.V., Avec, Mprise, NAV Experts, Aptean en Kidskonnect. Daardoor heb ik inmiddels meer dan 25 jaar ervaring met Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (en de voorlopers hiervan). Naast financieel Business Central consultant heb ik ook veel kennis en ervaring van alle overige Microsoft Dynamics NAV oplossingen.

Microsoft Certified Professional

On top of my expertise as a financial Microsoft Dynamics NAV/Dynamics 365 Business Central consultant, I am also very experienced with respect to all other Microsoft Dynamics NAV solutions. I am a Microsoft Certified Professional. My knowledge and experience ranges from Navision 2.0 to Dynamics NAV 2018 and Dynamics 365 Business Central: I am experienced in this whole product portfolio. That’s why I am regularly requested to act as a lead consultant for national and international Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central implementations. On top of that, I regularly provide training sessions. I am also acting as a (inter)national trainer: to give one example: I flew to Warschau in 2017 to provide training to Dynamics NAV Partners in Poland in all Dynamics NAV 2017 modules.

International experience

Prodware

When I started working for Prodware in 2007, I immediately got my first international assignment. Working for an international producer of animal food, I was involved as a financial consultant in the roll-out of Microsoft Dynamics NAV in the Netherlands and in Hungary. Here I gained hands-on experience with the localization within an international implementation, in my role as Financial Expert.

I have also been involved as an independent consultant in an international roll-out of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central in several countries at a pallet wholesaler.

Mprise

Als zelfstandig Dynamics NAV / Business Central consultant heb ik daarnaast gewerkt voor een klant van Mprise die genoteerd was aan de Amerikaanse technologiebeurs Nasdaq.

Microsoft

In 2017 ben ik ook naar Warschau gevlogen om Dynamics NAV partners in Polen trainingen te geven in alle modules van Dynamics NAV 2017.

Currently I am working as a Dynamics 365 Business Central consultant for a client that produces and sells smart veterinary diagnostics items from multiple countries, including the Netherlands, Germany, the United Kingdom, South Africa and the US.

Finally, I am currently active as a financial expert in the implementation of Business Central at an international tire manufacturer.

Financieel consultant Business Central

Navige is also supporting companies in improving and optimising their financial processes within the context of a Dynamics NAV/Dynamics 365 Business Central environment. I am building on my long-year experience: from 1987 till 1998 I have been working as an assistant accountant and Exact consultant at a Dutch accountancy firm. At the moment, I am working as a financial consultant for various Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central partners and customers. From 1998 till 2011 I have been working at GAC Business Solutions and afterwards at Prodware (previously working under the labels Watermark and Qurius) as an international financial expert and lead consultant. The customer always comes first in the Navige philosophy! As I have a lot of experience with Dynamics NAV and know how Dynamics 365 Business Central partners work, I can optimally support companies in the total implementation process. I regularly work as an advisor directly on the side of the (end) customer. In addition, I regularly work from Navige as a consultant for Microsoft Dynamics Partners, recruiters and consultancy firms. Microsoft Dynamics Partners, recruiters en adviesbureaus.

Apps

Omdat bedrijven efficiënter willen werken heb ik me in het bijzonder toegelegd op de apps van Continia. In het bijzonder heb ik veel kennis en ervaring met betrekking tot de apps van Document Capture (een scan en herken-oplossing) en OPplus (een bankoplossing). Met Opplus kun je daarom bankieren in een Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central omgeving zoals je altijd al had gewild. Met OPplus 365 kunnen bankafschriften eenvoudig en automatisch geïmporteerd worden in Dynamics 365 Business Central. Dit werkt  namelijk voor de meeste banken in Europa.

I am also specialized in Navidocs, an alternative scan and recognition solution from another supplier.
