SOFTWARE CUSTOMISATION

Aston Berkeley have been developing software since we started back in 1988. Although we can still provide full bespoke solutions we now concentrate on providing packages which can be tailored to match your requirements exactly. Our developers customise Microsoft Dynamics NAV, Business Central and Dynamics 365 to your specification. 

We have also written add on routines to provide enhanced functionality for Sage 50. See our BatchRecorder section for batch and serial number tracking and LocationRecorder for multi stock locations. These products allow you to continue with Sage 50c rather than upgrading to a much more expensive solution.

NAV and Business Central Customisation

Microsoft Dynamics NAV in its standard form is a very comprehensive E.R.P. system but can be further enhanced via customisation to deal with specific requirements. A great benefit of Microsoft Dynamics NAV is the ease in which the software can be customised to suit your business needs. This has important benefits as it allows you to implement customisations during the initial implementation and also in the future to adapt to business changes.

NAV clearly identifies all amendments making it easy to implement new versions of the product as and when they are released by Microsoft. Bespoke development are separated by a unique number series of tables, code units and fields.

Simple changes such as changing filed properties or creating new fields and screen changes can be provided by our support arrangements. More complex changes and full developments are assessed and a quotation provides. Work can be underdone on a fixed prices bases or time and materials.

Microsoft NAV remains in use for many companies but has now been replaced by Microsoft Dynamics Business Central which has many new features and brings a complete new user experience and easy integration into the complete Microsoft 365 range. We can help you migrate from NAV to take benefit of all the new features and move you from on premises to a fully managed cloud solution.

CRM Customisation

The standard CRM system allows general customisation to match your business requirements. You can customise a lot of elements in CRM such as the tabs, fields, page layouts and even hiding tabs or fields that you don’t need. A real strength of CRM is the ease in which it can be customised to fully suit your business.

  • Customise entity forms – this allows users to create view or edit entity records. Use the form designer in the customisation tools to create and edit.
  • Customise dashboards – Dashboards provide a snapshot of your data in various forms by presenting data from charts, grids, IFRAMES and Web resources.
  • Customise templates –
  • Create customised email templates and mail merge templates. (Customising is a powerful way of achieving a successful CRM system)

We can perform any of the above for you and also offer more complex development including complex workflow processing, system and web integration. It is possible to automate a number of your sales processes and provide clever automated responses.

Let us do the organising for you!

Sage Developers

Sage 50c enhancements

Aston Berkeley is a Sage Development Centre and has access to tools to modify Sage 50c and add extra functionality. We have created specific products to add functionality to Sage 50c to prevent any unnecessary upgrade to Sage 200.

The Development is provided as an external add on. We interface with Sage 50c taking information out and adding it back but we don’t change the core system. This keeps your investment in Sage 50c secure and allows you to easily install the upgrades which continue to be developed by Sage.

BatchRecorder

Adds batch/lot number or serial number traceability and information related to expiry or warranty dates. It provides a simple and efficient way to record the stock movement and sales of items requiring batch/lot traceability or 'sell by' information. Full batch details are recorded on Sage's stock transaction history and are available on standard Sage reports. Batch details are recorded on Sage invoices which can be printed, faxed or e-mailed automatically to your clients. An automatic archive provides full history of invoice information including batch details. The system has been used widely by the pharmaceutical and food industry to help them comply with their necessary legislation.

LocationRecorder

Gives the ability to record stock at different locations. You can create as many locations as required covering different warehouses, bins, aisles, or vehicles. Stock can be allocated at order entry so you can control free stock at each location.

The key to the systems success is simplicity; it can be easily added to existing Sage 50 systems or installed as new. Existing sage users require no additional training.

Sage 100

Although Sage has issued an end of life statement for Sage 100 it still has many happy users. We have provided customisation service for Sage for more than 25 years from simple report changes to full bespoke system integration.

We still provide Sage 100 support and have access to comprehensive software development kits enabling you to add value by integrating third party software and data sources.
