Microsoft Dynamics NAV for Food & Beverage: Eat, Drink, and Make Merry


From grapes to wine, from wheat to bread, from tomatoes to tomato sauce – the Food & Beverage Industry is huge. Here are a couple of random factoids:

  • Food distribution alone in a $400 billion industry in the United States.

  • Food manufacturing in the state of Texas alone is a $16 billion industry.

We don’t often stop to think about where the food on our table and in our lunch boxes comes from, or how it’s harvested, processed, packaged, and distributed. How it reaches the shelves of the corner market or the supermarket. We eat, drink, and make merry without giving any of those considerations a second thought.


Beyond that, we definitely don’t stop to consider the computer software that’s used by food and beverage manufacturers and distributors. Except perhaps for those of us who work in the technology industry. Because we know that enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is the wizard behind every Food & Beverage curtain.


The Wizard of NAV

“Every company has its strengths. For Liberty Grove that's manufacturing and distribution, with a special emphasis on food and beverage. And Microsoft Dynamics NAV.”


So let’s take a moment to look at Microsoft Dynamics NAV and what makes it the ERP software solution of choice for so many companies in the Food & Beverage sector.

  • Powerful, highly adaptable user interface (UI)

  • Integration with other Microsoft products

  • Advanced business intelligence (BI)

  • Diverse third-party add-ons

  • Ease of customization

When selecting an ERP vendor, one of the most important factors is the size, resources, and staying power of that vendor. No company wants to go through the effort and expense of installing a new ERP system only to have the vendor go out of business six months later.


And while all of Microsoft’s 4 ERP systems have staying power, when we look at how many customers worldwide use Microsoft Dynamics to run their businesses, NAV tops them all by huge margins. With Microsoft Dynamics NAV boasting 110,000 and Microsoft Dynamics GP coming in at less than half of that with 47,000.
