Written by Alex Chow of AP Commerce, Inc. (www.apcommerce.com)

AP Commerce is a Dynamics NAV (Navision) solution provider based in Los Angeles, California. Alex Chow is the founder and the president of AP Commerce. Alex has been awarded and re-awarded Microsoft MVP every year since 2007.


Alex Chow has been working with Microsoft Dynamics NAV, formerly known as Navision, since 1999. He has done hundreds of implementations across multiple industries. The size of businesses Alex has worked with range from $2 million a year mom-and pop-shops to $500 million a year multi-national corporations.

Throughout his Dynamics NAV career, he is frequently designated as the primary person responsible for the successful and failure of a Dynamics NAV implementation. The fact that Alex is still in the Dynamics NAV business means that he’s been pretty lucky so far.

Having experience implementing all functions and modules within and outside of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, Alex has encountered and resolved the most practical and to impossibility impractical operation requirements and business rules. From this experience, he has learned that sometimes you have to be a little crazy to have a competitive edge.

Believing that sharing these experience and knowledge would benefit the Dynamics NAV community, Alex writes about his journey at www.dynamicsnavconsultant.com (this site). He is also the founded of AP Commerce, Inc. (www.apcommerce.com) in 2005, a full service Dynamics NAV service center. In addition, Alex has written books about Dynamics NAV titled Getting Started with Dynamics NAV 2013 Application Development and Implementing Dynamics NAV 3rd Edition.

Alex lives in Southern California with his beautiful wife and 2 lovely daughters. He considers himself to be the luckiest man in the world.

The reason why Alex is still in the Dynamics NAV industry for over well over a decade is explained on this article.
