About Navige

Microsoft dynamics 365 business central consultant

After having worked for some 15 years as a Navision consultant for several companies, I started in 2011 as a freelance Microsoft Dynamics 365 BC consultant. Since then, I have been operating under the logo “Navige”. My first project as a freelance consultant for Nature’s Pride would take 10 days. However, the customer was so enthusiastic about my performance and contribution that I worked there for 9 months! Since then, I have been working for numerous companies in various branches. I also worked for several Dynamics 365 Business Central Partners, amongst which SPG, NLW-Groep, Avec, Mprise, Delta-N, QBS and GAC Business Solutions. This means that I currently have more than 25 years of experience with respect to Microsoft Dynamics 365 BC (and its predecessors).

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

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.

As an independent Dynamics NAV / Business Central consultant I worked for a client of Mprise that was listed on the American technology stock exchange Nasdaq.

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.

In 2017 I provided training sessions in all modules of Dynamics NAV 2017 to several Dynamics NAV partners in Poland from a training center in Warsaw.

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.

Financial Microsoft Dynamics consultant

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.

Apps

I have a specific focus on and experience with Continia's apps. In particular. I have a lot of knowledge and experience with regard to Document Capture (a scan and recognition solution) and OPplus (a banking solution). Using Opplus, organizations have access to banking functionality within a Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central environment as they had always wanted. With OPplus 365, bank statements can be easily and automatically imported into Dynamics 365 Business Central. This works for most banks in Europe.

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