Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 Localized for 15 Markets

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 is now localized for 15 markets: Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, United States and international English.

Microsoft says other localized versions are on the way, "but we don't have dates to share yet."

With this release, "we've focused on building what we've come to call "a business solution from Microsoft," blogged Paul White, Senior Director - ERP Product Management. "By this we mean a solution that combines comprehensive ERP capabilities for small and midsize businesses together with a simple, intuitive user experience, insightful business intelligence and reporting tools and deep ties into Microsoft's portfolio of products," Paul explains. "The result is an ERP solution that is easy to use, works seamlessly with your existing productivity tools, and is quick and cost-effective to implement," he said.

For partners that build industry and custom solutions on top of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013, "we've made a big investment in improving the "hostability" of the solution -- meaning you get going faster because partners can deploy and manage NAV 2013 in a more streamlined way -- and it also means that performance is significantly faster," he said.
