About Navision for Refiners ERP Software

Navision for Refiners is based on Microsoft’s flexible, intuitive Dynamics NAV 2013 enterprise resource planning (ERP) platform. Over ten years, we’ve implemented the software at some of the biggest names in precious metals refining and manufacturing, helping to:

  • Eliminate the need for spreadsheets and other disconnected third-party applications;
  • Access weights and value of all metals under their control, regardless of ownership;
  • Integrate information across departments (i.e., receiving, production, warehouse, vendors, accounting, etc.);
  • Gain immediate and remote ‘anytime’ access to ‘hedging positions’;
  • Set customer, metal and quantity-specific accountability percentages as well as other types of charges (i.e., assay, refining.) based on metal type, yield and other factors;
  • Handle settlements profitably and with clear audit trails and forensic analysis of all customer and vendor settlements;
  • Manufacture and fully integrate inventory control of precious metal-based engineered products;
  • Use contracts to carry all appropriate charges and fees along with a record of advances through to settlement;
  • Utilize pool accounting to maintain an accurate, real-time view of metals inventory—whether under their roof or not;
  • Provide spot pricing to customers/vendors and hedge for protection;
  • Co-mingle customers’ bars into house lots for further processing with full tracking.
