3 reasons your business may fail if you don’t upgrade Dynamics NAV now

3 reasons your business may fail if you don’t upgrade Dynamics NAV now

Microsoft continues to change Dynamics NAV each year, developing functionality and features that businesses need to achieve growth. After each new release, Dynamics NAV becomes easier to implement, business processes become faster and usability is improved significantly.  This raises the question for many current Dynamics NAV customers, why should I upgrade now?

You need to stay supported

We are in the age of digital transformation. Mobile and Cloud based systems is the future and many applications and tools are changing to reflect that. The older your version of Dynamics NAV, it will be increasingly more difficult to find the support your need.

Does Microsoft or your Dynamics NAV partner still support your current version? Will they in the next few years?

Will ISVs continue to develop capabilities that support your version of Dynamics NAV?

Less support options means an increase in downtime which could be detrimental for your business.

It will improve the way you do business

One thing you need to ask yourself is how much has your business grew since you implemented or upgraded Dynamics NAV. With most mid to large organizations, distribution, operations and channel strategy  is constantly evolving. The need for a  more streamlined business process and powerful functionality all of a sudden becomes more important when you realize your competitors are increasing their revenue. With integration with Office 365 and the ability to further extend Dynamics NAV using third-party extensions and apps, the new version of Dynamics NAV adapts to business growth a lot easier.

It will minimize risk

Many organizations are required to comply with specific regulations and audit requirements and relay on their current Dynamics NAV solution to obtain this information. Can your current system provide the reports you need quickly?  Having data that is accurate, fast and easy to obtain is essential. You need to be able to audit business processes, segregate key functions, structure processes, and implement business rules in order to minimize financial risk.  A Dynamics NAV upgrade will increase transparency, eliminate risk and provide enhanced reporting options.
