Overview

  • RapidiOnline offers a standard solution for Integrating Salesforce.com and Microsoft Dynamics NAV for the versions like NAV2009, NAV2013, NAV2016, and NAV2017. For the description of the standard integration between Salesforce.com - Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central please visit this article.
  • The standard solution consists of a predefined setup of a number of Transfers in your RapidiOnline service. There are two versions of this standard integration; one for NAV 2009 and earlier and one for NAV2013 and later. When ordering a new RapidiOnline service, you need to let us know which version is relevant for you.
  • In addition to this, you can choose to install a Salesforce.com application called SalesHistory3 that contains Salesforce.com objects to hold Posted Invoices and Customer Ledger Entries (visible on the Salesforce.com Account).
  • The standard solution supports multiple NAV Companies and multiple currencies from the start. This can be removed if you don't need it.
  • You can easily adapt the standard configuration to your needs by adding or removing specific fields (also custom fields) and you choose to disable parts of the standard that you don't want to use.
  • In general, the standard solution has been designed to cause a minimal change in your MS Dynamics NAV - we only need a few fields added to some tables in MS Dynamics NAV.
