Dimensions allow the system to automatically assign characteristics to an accounting entry, or transaction.
NAV can then group transactions/entries by these characteristics, allowing them to be analyzed or reported on by a combination of measures.
Using Dimensions you can report for example on:
- Sales by Area
- Sales by Product
- Sales by Salesperson by Area
From our experience, Dimensions are one of the most powerful and flexible pieces of functionality in NAV. An essential part of any implementation is to agree with the client how they would like to use their data to better understand their business.
The successful application of Dimensions can have a dramatic effect on the day to day reporting in NAV.
