Dynamics 365 Business Central


Dynamics 365 Business Central

In June 2018 Microsoft launched a major update to its Dynamics NAV product and the Microsoft Dynamics family. The new release - now called Dynamics 365 Business Central - or 'Business Central' for short brings NAV closer into the Dynamics 365 family of Microsoft products.

Whilst the actual 'NAV' product set remains essentially the same - with some new features of course. These changes do provide more integration options with the other Dynamics products. The rest is really marketing positioning and branding (e.g. see the new Business Central logo opposite).

This page seeks to outline the main changes launched in 2018. If you are already an active client of ours we will have already been speaking to you about the effects of these changes. If you already have a Navision / Dynamics NAV system and are looking for a partner to help support you in the future . Please contact us for a no obligation discussion round your options.

For our clients, in most cases it won't change much. But you will have already start seeing 'Business Central' replacing NAV as the product name in materials and in software releases.

We have included a handy video, which we hope will also help with its positioning.
