We have over 30 years’ experience in Microsoft applications, with a key focus on helping organisations using Dynamics NAV upgrade to Business Central.
If you are using Dynamics NAV then in most cases, we’d say it is time to upgrade, but we also look closely at the individual needs of every customer we work with to ensure this is the right step for them.
Generally, though, we believe that if you’re using NAV then you are potentially selling your business performance short – and ultimately, you’re not operating from a modern, supported and secure platform.
Knowing when it's time to upgrade, ask yourself some questions...
When working with customers who are concerned that their Dynamics NAV applications are not meeting the demands of a modern business, we ask them to consider some relevant questions.
Should they answer ‘yes’ to any of these questions then it’s highly likely that a NAV to Business Central upgrade is their right next step, and we’ll kick off the project to get them there.

In our experience, the risk of running an unsupported version of Dynamics NAV should be of immediate concern and a key driver behind upgrading to Dynamics Business Central. Here’s some of the main risks when running unsupported:
Security: Microsoft continually improve their security to fend off malicious threats and attacks. Unsupported NAV doesn’t benefit from these updates, leaving businesses open to hackers and other breaches.
Emergency Fixes: If you continually miss out on upgrades across your software packages then one minor system breakage can cause multiple impacts, leading to the need for costly and complex emergency fixes.
Lost productivity: Every new version brings improvements and enhancements that deliver productivity gains, running unsupported means you miss out on these gains.
With Business Central your data is available in real time with reporting of KPIs easy to collate and share with self-serve reports available from trusted data sources, rapidly improving the decision making across your business. And you’re fully integrated with Office 365 and able to work seamlessly with familiar tools including Excel, Word and Outlook.
Business Central is Microsoft’s comprehensive, cloud ready business and finance management platform specifically designed for small to medium sized organisations. This means all your applications are available in one, consolidated platform and accessible anytime, anywhere.
There are differing promotions that your business could take advantage of when upgrading to Business Central. For example, existing NAV users with an enhancement plan in place can upgrade to BC On Premise and receive 3 named users for every 1 concurrent user with no change to the enhancement plan cost.
We appreciate that every customer is different when it comes to the most suitable cost model, as a result we’ll work with you to quickly identify your best option.
