What Does End of Mainstream Support Mean For Dynamics NAV ?

Ending mainstream support means Microsoft will no longer be enhancing that product. When mainstream support ends, this is what occurs:
Microsoft no longer supplies non-security hotfixes unless you have an extended support agreement, all warranty claims end, Microsoft no longer accepts requests for new features and design changes. This is where a partner like Korcomptenz can make a difference. We offer NAV Support Services to ensure your operations run smoothly at very compelling costs.

The Top 5 reasons for an upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018

Many Microsoft Dynamics NAV customers on older versions move forward with support and customizations from a partner, but an upgrade is going to be a requirement at some point and there are some real benefits to moving ahead quickly. Here are some reasons why you need to upgrade with the support of a Microsoft Dynamics NAV partner like Korcomptenz.

  • Enterprises using versions before 2013 may need to completely re-implement, those using 2013 or later might be able to upgrade-in-place

  • Worried about historical data? Korcomptenz, Microsoft Dynamics NAV partner, has you covered, we can migrate and maintain all of your records

  • The latest version comes with more capabilities including Office 365 and Power BI integration, you can seamlessly access information instead of toggling between applications
