Here are the details of the upcoming NAV Roadshow for May.
Microsoft & Attenda will be taking questions from the partner channel during the hosted Q&A session. This is your chance to demystify hosting with NAV and talk to the people who have the answers.
Please could you send me your questions ahead of the first event.
Make a note of the fact that the Reading event is NOT at Microsoft TVP this time but is down the road at Regus TVP. 2 minutes from the Microsoft Campus.http://cid-84a09f3e130caea0.skydrive.live.com/browse.aspx/Directions%20To%20Regus%20for%20May%20NAV%20Roadshow
Motorola will be attending the Reading event to follow on from the Feb Roadshow. They are not presenting but Stephanie Lloyd (firstname.lastname@example.org) will be there as your primary contact for all Dynamcics Mobile hardware. So if you have any questions or queries here is the chance to get them answered.
The NAV Roadshow is a victim of its own success! The Reading event is heavily oversubscribed. If you are on the waiting list please bear with me as I am trying to find a venue for 45!
If you know that you won’t be attending please can you take yourself off the list to free up spaces. http://www.microsoft.com/uk/partner/dynamicstraining/?id=nav
We still have space available in Mancheter and Edinburgh.
This is the agenda for the day at all venues.
Have a great weekend everyone.

Launching the New Partner Marketing Application
Many Dynamics partners realise the power of a media rich, fully interactive sales presentation, and those who have been using the version 1.0 application know that it is fast to use, adds a great deal of value to partners’ sales and marketing effectiveness and is free to all UK Dynamics partners. Many partners have been creating high quality presentations for individual prospects and / or events using V1. We’re now launching V2 which is even better based on feedback from partners and new technology.

NEMO is a Microsoft Certified BI module that is embedded within the Microsoft Dynamics NAV programme that provides additional source of revenue and upgrade opportunities for resellers. Information and Reporting is brought to one central point by the creation of Data Cubes residing directly on SQL Server. Reports can be sent to managers at preset times and has graphical support of publishing and Reporting Services. Finance, Customer, Vendor, Inventory, Salesmen and Company information can be accessed directly from NEMO or accessible via the Internet in .PDF or XML format as well as exported directly to Excel for further manipulation. The NEMO system is easy to set up and operates on the standard base platform provided by Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
