Businesses have the choice to opt for the desired deployment option.

With a simple to understand user interface, it offers seamless features and functions to all users that aid them in navigating easily.

Dynamics NAV allows users to get accurate insights and reports to make informed decisions in real-time. It provides the visibility to track almost all performances with the help of Microsoft integrations like Excel and Office.

The basic requirement of Dynamics NAV is having an internal Dynamics NAV support team to keep the system working 24x7, even in tough times. It eliminates the dependency on third-party NAV support partners, resulting in a focus on business growth.

Dynamics NAV is flexible enough to adapt itself as per the unique requirements of the business. It is totally customizable and can be tailored to offer a personalised user experience with increased productivity.

Using Micrsoft Navision, businesses can make a big difference to the level of customer service they provide. Eventually, it will be more likely to win over new customers and keep their existing ones coming back for more.

Is your Dynamics NAV inefficient?

With your current NAV version, you may be experiencing a number of issues, such as performance issues, lags during processing, costly maintenance, a complex user interface, and ineffective features. It might be possible that your current Navision version is inefficient for tackling your current business requirements. If so, your current system needs an urgent upgrade.

You have two options: upgrade your NAV version to the latest available version or upgrade the whole ERP system to Business Central. Both of these options would cost the same, but upgrading to Business Central is the long-term solution on which you can rely in the future.

If you've been using NAV for a while and want to keep the same user interface and accessibility for a few more years, you can upgrade to the latest version. In both cases, Dynamics Square is available to understand your business and suggest the best possible solution.

Dynamics NAV vs Dynamics 365 Business Central

Dynamics 365 Business Central is the evolved and modern version of NAV software, specially built to aid SMBs with their core business management processes. The major differences between these two applications are listed below:

  • Deployment Option: NAV works with on-premises deployment only, whereas Business Central is flexible enough to deploy data servers using on-premises, cloud, or hybrid deployment.
  • Upfront Investment Cost: Dynamics NAV implementation needs a huge investment to set up for a business, whereas Business Central implementation works on a monthly subscription basis due to cloud deployment.
  • Maintenance Cost: You will need an internal IT team to support all kinds of maintenance and hardware upgrades, resulting in a lot of investment, whereas Business Central will be maintained by Microsoft at no extra cost and without hampering the current processes.
  • Simple User Interface: The user interface of NAV software is a bit complex, and new users find it difficult to understand. On the other hand, MS Dynamics 365 Business Central offers a simple yet powerful user interface where all the functions and tools are easily accessible.
  • Personalization: NAV provides limited personalization for all industries and requires significant resources to implement. Furthermore, when it comes to Business Central, extensions, add-ons, and other simple-to-implement apps are available to make the Microsoft ERP work for you.
