About

My Name is Hannes Holst and I’m a Dynamics NAV Consultant with more than 12 years experience. I have built my knowledge about Dynamics NAV by working for international companies. Fortunately, I never forgot to look beyond the end of my nose.

I have compiled information about myself on this page. The information is separated in 4 paragraphs. The first three paragraphs deliver a brief insight into my professional career. The last paragraph describes my motivation. Additionally, I provide additional information about my skills here. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me here

The beginning

I have started my career in 2005. The international distributor Nya Nordiska Textiles GmbH offered me a job in the IT-department. From my first day on, I have started to work with business processes and Microsoft Dynamics NAV. I started to like my job quickly. So I grew into the role and became a favorite person for everything related with Dynamics NAV. I did work directly for the company’s executive council for IT and business operations. My manager didn’t want to let me go, but …

Partner experience

I have decided in 2011, that I wanted to get to know the development approach of a Microsoft Dynamics NAV Partner company. The Microsoft Gold-Partner BGL Software GmbH gave me the possibility to learn their business. The management decided to allocate me into the project for the newest and biggest customer. In a team of two, we were able to deliver Dynamics NAV including a industry-solution to the German offices. Because of the success, the customer ordered to implement the same solution for the French offices.

After this, I was keen to work hands-on with a modern software development approach. I did found my new position in the company TeleBilling (now acquired by Hansen Technologies). TeleBilling is a Danish Dynamics NAV partner and employs around 110 people. The major product is a Dynamics NAV industry solution for telecom services with projects across Europe. TeleBilling offered me a position as Technical Consultant. Each team occupied between 5 and 15 developers. The team organization has been standardized for each team using the Agile approach, version control and automated code delivery. (So, yes – I found what I was looking for.)

Being one of the key factors

In 2017, I faced a new opportunity which brought me to London. The fashion brand Tangle Teezer wanted to replace their current ERP-system with Dynamics NAV 2017. I didn’t hesitate long and we started the project together with The NAV People as infrastructure and software supplier. Thanks to a consequent utilization of standard processes in Dynamics NAV, we were able to deliver in time and under budget. Additionally, I was able to consult the decision making process with my experience and analyzes directly. The project was a great success for the business, the IT-management and for me.

The why, the how and the what

 

My personal motivation is simple. I’m driven by to create software that brings benefit to a business and is easy to use. Shaping details and focusing on the wider perspective gives direction on how to walk the road. Finally, I’m offering all this as a dedicated and individual service. My blog post “My top 5 tips for every software project” gives an additional, more detailed insight about my thoughts about software development.
