What is Microsoft Navision?

Microsoft Navision is the old name for Dynamics NAV (which is now known as Dynamics 365 Business Central!), an ERP system that provides businesses with an end-to-end solution for connecting and managing all processes (such as sales, purchasing, accounting, plus general reporting). It's an adaptable solution that allows you to easily upgrade from entry-level accounting software and legacy ERP systems. That’s just a brief explanation of what Microsoft Navision is!

Dynamics 365 Business Central, however, is the next generation of Navision software and as such, it has at its foundation a set of trusted, proven technologies. Being super flexible, it is designed to suit how you work and can be customised to fit your business, no matter what your industry.

Upgrading Navision

Looking to upgrade from Microsoft Navision? We’ve got you covered! 

We’re happy to support you with your old Navision system until you are ready to move on. Also, thanks to our experience, we can look after any functional code in these older versions (and some of our staff love the nostalgia that comes with working with older systems). However, while we can help you, we can’t change the underlying kernel that defines these systems.

As Microsoft drops support for security fixes/updates for these older Navision versions, there will always be some risk staying on them – and that becomes harder for us to mitigate. But rest assured, we’ll do what we can to keep your old engine running up until the day you’re ready to move to your new, shiny and functionally rich Dynamics 365 Business Central platform.

Timeline

Optimising Older Navision Systems

Many of our current customers are on old Navision versions – the majority are still using versions that predate the current Role Tailored Client (RTC) visual interface, while some use Navision versions as far back as 1.3 and 2.6 (which were implemented in the mid to late 1990s). Even so, whatever your requirement we can help you to get the most out of your Navision system.

Of course, we recognise that not everyone can upgrade their Navision to a shiny new Dynamics 365 Business Central system, and that’s fine! For those of you who are unable to or not yet ready to upgrade, there are a lot of things you can do to your current Navision system to improve it.

Our MD describes this as putting ‘Lipstick on a Pig’, which essentially means ‘tarting up’ your classic Navision system. We can add bits and bobs on to it to improve its functionality. There’s also the option of a ‘technical upgrade’, which allows you to keep your existing functionality and modifications but support them with the latest executables.

Implementation & Project Methodology

Looking for information on implementing Navision? It's easy to get confused with the various name changes – instead of a Navision implementation, what you'll actually be getting is the current version, Dynamics 365 Business Central! Head over to our implementation page to learn more.

P.S. If you’re worried about implementing Dynamics 365 Business Central, don’t be!

Our unique implementation methodology, ‘Day in the Life’, ensures that your system is designed to meet your day-to-day needs. We’ll look at your business as a whole and discuss your typical day-to-day processes to build a model of your business within Dynamics 365 Business Central.

The result? You get your data in a real Business Central environment, so you can see exactly what you’ll be getting!
