To help the companies, Microsoft has developed Dynamics NAV, an enterprise resource planning (ERP) app. The product is part of the Microsoft Dynamics family and intended to assist with finance, manufacturing, customer relationship management, supply chains, analytics, and electronic commerce for small and medium-sized companies and local subsidiaries of large international groups.

Each technology in the platform helps your business in a different way, but the benefits are exponential when utilized together.
Upgrade from Dynamics NAV to Business Central
Before considering an upgrade to Dynamics Business Central, the most important factor is if Microsoft still supports your current solution. When a solution is supported, it has access to new features and crucial security updates. When you are not getting the important security upgrade to your ERP solution, you leave your system vulnerable to threats, downtime, and potential failure. Unsupported solutions cannot take advantage of new features. Therefore, if there is a change in the software, customers will have to pay out of pocket for any development required to adapt to these changes. Not upgrading to Business Central means you cannot take advantage of functionality improvements that can improve your bottom line.
Microsoft consistently adds product improvements to improve functionality. Upgrading to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central from Dynamics NAV gives you the opportunity to benefit from new features. It gives you access to advanced technology features right away - in their yearly wave releases. There are a multitude of improvements that help the user access information easier and quicker.
An upgrade means taking your existing environment and moving it forward. This brings all or selected customizations and data into the latest version of Dynamics 365 Business Central. This approach is best for small and medium-sized solutions that want to keep customizations and have very few constraints for moving to SaaS. A re-implementation is starting from scratch. This is a new implementation with your historical data. Your system is re-designed with new technologies in mind, and unused customizations and business processes are reviewed to ensure you get a more functional system.
They help you shorten your deployment time, improve the quality of your implementation and enhance productivity by automating and simplifying recurring tasks. Some of the key benefits include:
Microsoft Dynamics NAV Performance Tuning
Microsoft Dynamics NAV offers the growing business a powerful yet cost-effective solution.
