Certified for Microsoft Dynamics (CfMD) is the certification awarded to some solutions and add ins for Microsoft Dynamics ERP and CRM products. Products that carry the CfMD badge have met Microsoft’s highest standard for partner developed solutions giving you the proof before you buy that they connect, integrate or operate seamlessly with Microsoft Dynamics business solutions.
With CfMD, customers can access a portfolio of tested, reference-able software solutions to address their specific business needs. Solutions are available that extend features; for example Jet Reports; and those that extended functionality to meet customers’ unique business and industry needs, for example TVision’s Wine System.
CfMD means the solution has been tested and seamlessly integrated with Microsoft Dynamics products; and is used and recommended by other companies.
As Dynamics NAV resides in its own development environment, over the years lots of great enhancements have been developed by partners. CfMD provides recognition from Microsoft and commitment from your partner that the solutions work seamlessly with NAV and will continue to follow the NAV Roadmap.
