What is Dynamics NAV?

An ERP solution that makes sure your business has all the right building blocks

Modules for any structure

Dynamics NAV is an easily adaptable enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, it helps small and medium-sized businesses automate and connect their sales, purchasing, operations, accounting, and stock management. It covers all your business processes from finance to purchasing, warehouse management to general reporting. Plus it’s super flexible and can be customised to fit your business no matter what your industry. If you're wondering why you can't find mention of Dynamics NAV on Microsoft's website it's because they re-branded Dynamics NAV to Dynamics 365 Business Central in 2018!

Supporting the Older Dynamics NAV System!

At The NAV | 365 People we support hundreds of customers on Dynamics 365 Business Central, Dynamics NAV and even Navision, the original version of the product prior to being acquired by Microsoft. Many, many of our customers are on old versions of these products and many are on version that pre-date the current Role Tailored Client (RTC) visual style interface (we call these 'Classic' versions). We have customers dating back to version 1.3 and 2.6, implemented in the mid to late 1990’s, they still manage their stock and collect money from customers before finally accounting for it all. We love to talk about bringing our customers into the new world of Dynamics 365 Business Central, but we also recognise the financial and time pressures which may mean people want to stay for now on their old version.

At The NAV | 365 People, we never push people to upgrade before they are ready and we happily support customers with their versions until they are ready to move on. We can support functional code in any old version (and many of our staff love the memories it creates when working on these Classic systems, just like mechanics reminiscing on an old E-Type Jag!) Of course we can’t change the fundamental kernel of these old systems so as Microsoft drop support for security fixes for these older versions, there will always be some risk in staying on these systems that is harder for us to mitigate. But rest assured, we will do what we can to keep your old beauty running until the day you can move to that new shiny, faster, and functionally rich Dynamics 365 Business Central.
