NETWORKING THE COMPANY WITH THE

Is Microsoft Dynamics NAV still available? First we would like to give you an insight into the history of the proven ERP solution. It all started with the Navision solution, which was later renamed Dynamics NAV and then Dynamics 365 Business Central. In addition, we will explain the most frequently asked questions about the differences, the support and incentives for upgrading.

IN USE ALL OVER THE WORLD:

Microsoft Dynamics NAV: the proven ERP solution for SMEs.

For some time now, however, customers have been turning to us with the question of whether the ERP solution Microsoft Dynamics NAV is still available. After the system was initially known as Navision, it was renamed from Microsoft to Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Then, in 2018, however, another renaming took place, which became known on the market as Dynamics 365 Business Central and still exists today.

The different names were mainly a result of the continuous improvements of the ERP system. Over time, Microsoft has worked on both the deployment options and the functionality of the system.

Convinced by Microsoft Dynamics NAV

Regardless of the constant further developments and adaptations of the system, a great advantage has been maintained across all versions. By using Microsoft Dynamics NAV, your company is no longer dependent on a programmer or software provider. This is also the reason why the ERP solution has proven itself in companies of countless industries and of different sizes and today looks back on a long development.
