Why you should upgrade from NAV to Business Central

If you are currently using Microsoft Dynamics NAV (NAVISION), you may be wondering if it’s time to upgrade to Business Central.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV was rebranded in 2018 to Microsoft Dynamics Business Central and it uses the latest technology that isn't compatible with NAV, including Power BI, Power Apps and AI.

Although NAV is still a reliable solution, Dynamics Business Central is a cloud-based solution that connects all your operations and offers modern tools and technology, advanced features, and a more elegant modern interface can help you stay ahead of the competition. Here are some reasons why you should upgrade from NAV to Business Central.

 

1. Cloud-based solution :

Since Dynamics Business Central is cloud-based, it’s accessible on any device, anywhere, at any time. There’s also no further investment in hardware, servers, and maintenance agreements. This means that it offers more flexibility, scalability, and accessibility than NAV.

You can access your data and software from anywhere in the world, on any device, as long as you have an internet connection. This means that you can work remotely and collaborate with your team more easily.

2. Modern Interface:

One of the most noticeable differences between NAV and Business Central is the user interface. Business Central has a modern, intuitive interface that is designed to be user-friendly and easy to navigate. This can help you save time and increase productivity, as you can find the information you need more quickly.

3. Advanced Features

Business Central has enhanced search capabilities, making the data easily accessible and more organized and includes more advanced analytics and reporting features than NAV, making it easier for businesses to gain insights into their operations and make data-driven decisions.

4. Lower Cost of Ownership/ Customized Software

Business Central is more cost-effective than NAV, especially if you are considering a cloud deployment. Microsoft offers flexible pricing plans that allow you to pay only for the features and services you need, making it easier to scale up or down as your business evolves.

 

5. Continual Updates:

Microsoft is committed to continuously updating and improving the software, adding new features and functionality based on customer feedback and changing market demands.

Upgrading from NAV to Business Central is a smart choice for any business that wants to stay competitive in today’s fast-paced marketplace.
