Customer Case Study: To-Increase Visual Job Planner for Microsoft Dynamics NAV RTC

Posted by Martin Karlowitsch on Jul 17, 2012 10:55:00 AM

Timing is everything for companies that specialize in complex projects. To-Increase, a leading global ISV for Microsoft Dynamics, has utilized Netronic's Gantt chart software to create a Visual Job Planner solution that gives users global-to-granular insight into time-sensitive jobs that determine successful project execution. The solution integrates seamlessly with the role-tailored client of Microsoft Dynamics NAV and extracts data from SQL server views, so that users work with a single system that eliminates the need to juggle windows and ensures all information is accurate and current.

Notable features include:

  • A data access layer that handles large volumes with high performance
  • An installer for external components and SQL server views
  • Views per job task, a cost breakdown structure by element and an activity structure by activity

As shown below, the Visual Job Planner links views for job tasks, elements, and activities so that it’s easy to expand, switch, and double-click your way into task details, resource assignments, loads, activities, and relevant budget lines.

Within the next few months, the solution will be enhanced so that users can schedule activities and change them directly in the Visual Job Planner, using drag-and-drop functionality. All information will be recorded in Dynamics NAV.

Adri Cardol, Product Manager Dynamics NAV Solutions of To-Increase, summarizes:

"Just as important, we will be using NETRONIC's generic, flexible technology that enables us to create a wide range of graphical planners that simplify the art and science of project management."
