Enjoy a Hassle-free Dynamics NAV or Navision Upgrade

Making the decision to upgrade NAV requires careful consideration with so many parts of your business heavily reliant on the data it stores and generates.

The issue becomes critical when your version of NAV or Navision no longer performs to meet current needs. Signs of this include:

  • Critical updates are no longer provided
  • You want cloud functionality
  • You’re in the market for new hardware, but now your NAV is incompatible
  • You can’t integrate your NAV or Navision with other newer parts of your business processes

This decision is hard enough. Once made, handing over responsibility for the transition can be harder still.

You need to ensure all your operations continue to run smoothly, without the hiccups, headaches, and hailstorms you may have experienced with previous upgrades.

Curb Your Upgrade Fears

The prospect of a software upgrade makes every business owner cringe, and for good reason. There are a lot of ways things can go wrong and a lot of concern about upgrade suitability. We’re here to tell you there is nothing to worry about. If you’re thinking:

  • You have too many customizations: Customizations do not prohibit upgrades. In fact, every NAV implementation has some customization involved, so any upgrade professional expects to migrate them. We have the right tools and processes to ensure your customizations have no negative impact on the upgrade process and that each customization is properly integrated and functional at go-live time. What’s more, during the upgrade we can optimize your customizations for better overall system performance, and clean up any unnecessary customizations you may have.
  • Your version of NAV is so outdated, you can’t upgrade: This is exactly why you should upgrade immediately. No version is too out of date and getting access to the features and functionality in the latest version will not only improve your business, it will protect it. Our upgrade team knows how to move from any version of NAV to the current version – it’s all in how you approach it.
  • An upgrade is as complex as a new implementation: Fortunately, this is not the case. An upgrade project works its own way, and the requirements, scope and the methodology used make it easier to approach than full-scale implementations. We also have tools and past experience to help guide us for a simpler experience.
  • It will cost less to do it in-house: Performing an upgrade with internal staff or short-term contract workers creates unnecessary risk, extends the turnaround time and costs the company more due to errors and complications. Microsoft provides us with a full tool set to help automate and guide the upgrade process, which reduces human error, and our well trained upgrade experts can utilize that to an extreme advantage. Alleviate pressure on your internal team, reduce the time it takes to accomplish the project and limit your risk by seeking out expertise from our upgrade professionals.
  • Upgrades are not strategic: This is false. Upgrading isn’t simply applying hotfixes and security patches and should be considered a major part of your IT strategy. By undergoing an upgrade process with a professional organization that has specialists in all areas of IT, you are able to identify other strategic IT drivers such as infrastructure or platform upgrades, improved systems integrations, better business processes and more.
