We are looking at potently offering a monthly subscription service for our products. Much like a fruit of the month club. We are on Nav 2018 and have not implemented any ecommerce solutions at this point so we have a fresh canvas to work with.
Anyone else have a subscription service like this tied into NAV?
We have options:
1) Use one of the third party subscription services, let them handle all of the transactions and then figure out how to relieve inventory and track the financials'/tax reporting in nav via journal entries. Probably lump all of the website transactions as a once a month entry based on the third party web site..
2) Use one of the subscription services let them handle all of the transactions and then setup the website as an intercompany or as a "customer" to handle the transactions. Not a fan of setting up a dummy customer but if that's what we have to do..
3) Find an e-commerce solution with full integration into NAV that has both B2B and B2C. Hopefully the b2c has the subscription feature built in. This would be the best option but we want to get this going ASAP.
4) not sure what 4 would be but put it out there for other suggestions...
Hey John,For our subscription management at Innovia we use a product called Work 365 which is based in Dynamics 365 for Sales (CRM). We did that so our customers can manage their Microsoft Office, Azure and NAV/BC Subscriptions right from our portal.
We integrate it to BC On-Prem with EOne SmartConnect and it handles all of our automatic prorated invoicing.
We invoice 13,000 licenses monthly and have not had to add any additional accounting staff to handle the load.
It works amazing!Cheers!
