The construction industry is moving towards minimizing adverse environmental impact and facilitating businesses and projects to be executed as smoothly as possible with little waste. Extending the business to include e-commerce is one of the ways you can effectively tackle this challenge.
Multiple websites, catalogs, and categories are supported in Nav-to-Net™ for better organization and to appeal to customers. It is all managed in one place, your existing Business Central/NAV. A centralized e-commerce solution for BC/NAV helps make sense of your extensive range of products and expertise, putting it in context for your customers.
Advanced search functions, such as parametric search, help customers find what they are looking for and to differentiate between similar products. This guides them into choosing the right product for their situation, as well as save time. Prevent your customers from getting overwhelmed by the sheer volume of product available to them.
Nav-to-Net™ item detail pages are full and descriptive. Educating your customers is a big part of successful e-commerce. All content is easily managed with the Multi-Line Text Box (MLTB) tool with WYSIWYG editing. Your product pages can be further customized to suit the look and feel and purpose you need.
There is an increasing need for mobile capabilities, whether through responsive design in your Business Central/NAV e-commerce website and online business portals, but also in the form of web services (connecting to any 3rd party app and integrating it with your BC/NAV and Nav-to-Net). Make it easy for customers, business users, dealers, vendors, sales staff to access and log-in wherever they are and no matter which device they are using. It’s the new expectation to have the flexibility to make decisions on the go. Business can happen anywhere - track orders, delivery notifications, special shipping instructions, order status, order confirmations, payment information. Make necessary changes anywhere you are, and the strong integration means information is constantly updated in real-time. Achieve higher customer and employee satisfaction with providing them with this level of connectivity.
The construction industry is primarily a B2B environment, so you need a solution that is specifically designed to optimize supply chain management, as well as dealer and vendor networks, all while being seamlessly integrated with Business Central/NAV. Here are some of the features available in Nav-to-Net™ B2B that add value:
Single sign-on integration is simple in concept, but it has powerful implications for your e-commerce business, especially if you have multiple sites. Customers and business users only have to use one username and password to gain access. This also centralizes access control, making your Nav-to-Net™ site more secure.
In the construction industry, many of your customers may choose to buy in bulk. Nav-to-Net™ makes it easy to set up different pricing options based on quantity as well as markups for dealers or previously negotiated discounts for customers. Personalization options make your customers feel valued, thus adding value to your e-commerce business.
This is an essential part of business for many in the construction industry. A bidding process also establishes the best prices for customers. Nav-to-Net™ allows you to create and manage them right in Business Central/NAV. Simplified process and seamless integration to BC/NAV means faster responses.
