Having trouble with your version of Dynamics NAV?  Is it delaying system progress? With the dynamic change in technologies, every company needs to keep an updated record about the last contributions for a myriad of reasons such as staying competitive, consistent, and embracing systems that will help to reach their goals.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is the latest version of the Dynamics NAV product. It’s the best option for Dynamics NAV customers who want a modern and affordable solution. If you are considering the upgrade from Dynamics NAV, we’ll help you to know what are the considerations that should be taken for the Microsoft Dynamics NAV upgrade

Here is what you need to consider.

The Current Version of your Dynamics NAV – It’s crucial for customers to know the version of Dynamics NAV they are using. Although it is possible to upgrade from any version of Dynamics NAV, the process is simpler and less costly if customers keep up to date. Generally, customers with versions more than three releases old will require a major upgrade because they have missed so many changes. Regular updating has another important benefit. If your customers only upgrade occasionally, each upgrade will take longer. Some customizations will not upgrade easily between versions and customers will miss bundled capabilities on intermediate versions that could have saved them money.

Potential of Dynamics 365 Business Central – Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is a cloud-based, all-in-one business management solution.  This latest version of Business Central include:

  • Revive Your Financial Management
  • Intuitive user interface.
  • Smarter Sales Service Management
  • Business functionality possibilities through Microsoft’s AppSource.
  • The lower initial investment with a Cloud ERP System.
  • Integration of Microsoft Business Solutions such as Outlook and CRM.
  • Accessibility through Modern Clients

Dynamics 365 Business Central also works as a Cloud or On-Premises solution. Whether you select On-premise or Cloud, the selection depends entirely on your business needs in your company and the way much you’re willing to make an investment while implementing or upgrading to a new Microsoft ERP system.

Cloud vs On-Premises – The On-Premise adaptation of Dynamics 365 Business Central is for those organizations who, for some, reason, may have to possess power over their own server, and henceforth their information, and/or need more customization alternatives than the cloud variant offers. Likewise, with Dynamics NAV, Business Central On-premise is extremely adaptable and may be custom-made precisely to the necessities of your business, no matter how complex they could be.

Budget – In most cases upgrading to a newer version of your ERP system is quite an investment. There should be a reasonable expectation for budgeting such as project management, the scope of work, deployment, training, and ongoing support.

What Customizations and Add-ons? – A discussion on Customizations and Add-ons is important to properly serve your needs. Impax customizations on business functionality to Business Central have impacted several industries in the positive growth direction.  Our previous version, modifications were written for specific functionality in the older development language of NAV.  Now, we use more modern development language to grant seamless publishing and execution integration with Dynamics Business Central. Some of the tools used is the AL Language Extension for Visual Studio Code.
