Microsoft Dynamics NAV installation, comes with various client types. Based on your business process, you can choose from the following:
Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client is optimized for intensive use, and the user can have multiple windows open at the same time, for example, to compare sales orders, or do more things at a time. This is not possible in either Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client or Microsoft Dynamics NAV Tablet client.
The Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client gives users access to Microsoft Dynamics NAV data over a network, such as the Internet, by using a web browser. Users can view and modify data from a user-friendly interface that resembles the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client, where the starting point is the Role Centre.
Tablet Client The tablet is lighter than a laptop, and thereby provides portability. Most tablets have an on-screen keyboard, but the keyboard plays a less central role on the tablet, and this forces you to have to consider the touch experience.
Phone Client The phone is a very light device and has an even smaller screen than tablets, which is why the tasks that usually make sense to perform using the phone are brief and typically reading of data or very lightweight data entry, such as approving an invoice or getting an overview of the business.
The following illustration shows the intended use of the various Microsoft Dynamics NAV clients:
As illustrated, the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Tablet client and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Phone client do not replace the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client or Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client. Instead, they offer a touch interface for a limited set of application scenarios compared to the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client. The Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client support more complex business processes and heavier data entry than is possible on the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Tablet client and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Phone client.
