By now you know “Rapid Start” is from Microsoft. So, Cost Control Software has added “Instant Start” functionality to Foundation Pack Database. We start with Microsoft Dynamics NAV’s Copy Company command. That feature will duplicate any selected company. But our users don’t want the Transactions and sometimes don’t want the Master Files either. (Customers, Vendors, Items,…)
The solution was to add a “Clear Transactions” function to start your new company without any Transactions. But, static data such as Payment Terms, Postal Codes, Currency, and about 90 other such Tables are kept. They can easily be edited later if need by.
Our concern was that this kind of power was dangerous. So, we added multiple layers of security so only the right individual would have access to the Clear Transactions functions.
Think of the ways you could use this feature:
1. Start a new Company just like your current company.
2. Start a new Company from Scratch but start with your Chart of Accounts and Posting Groups.
3. Start a new Demo Company or Practice Company as needed.
(You could even use the Delete Company after you have completed your Practice Session.)
This feature was designed for End-Users that have to Duplicate the Parent Company but remove the old Transactions for the New Company. This is why we call it Instant Start. But many NAV Resellers could use this feature to expedite the roll out of a new Dynamics NAV installation.
The best way to learn about it is to watch our YouTube Video showing all the features LIVE.
We do want your feedback on what you see and if you have any special requirements beyond what we have created so far. If you are a NAV Reseller, this feature is available in our Demonstration Database. Give me a call or send an e-mail and we can get started.
