Addressing key challenges

One of the key challenges faced by Succeed IT's clients was the time-consuming task of maintaining accurate pricing and item information within Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central SaaS. Nowadays suppliers are updating their prices and catalogues almost bi-weekly. On top of that, suppliers use many different Excel formats to deliver this information to their distributors. To address these challenges, SucceedIT turned to Dynavision’s Advanced Item & Price Import app, recognizing its potential to facilitate and automate the import process of supplier Excel files.

Leadership in action

Leading the charge was Matthijs Schimmel, a skilled consultant at SucceedIT, whose expertise and proactive approach were instrumental in the success of the project. Leveraging his deep understanding of both the client’s needs and the capabilities of Dynavision’s solution, Matthijs took on the task of testing, demonstrating, and implementing the app at the end-customer project

What sets this case apart is Matthijs’ autonomy and proficiency in executing the implementation without requiring direct assistance from Dynavision. This achievement speaks not only to Matthijs’ capabilities as a consultant but also to the user-friendly design of Dynavision’s apps, which facilitated a smooth and seamless integration process.
