Choosing between various ERP options (NAV vs Business Central, and Cloud vs On-premises) is not a trivial task. Not only do you need to ensure that the features and functions are aligned with your needs, you also need to choose the right Microsoft partner to work with you. Want to stay on Dynamics NAV rather than upgrading to Dynamics 365 Business Central? Not ready for the cloud? At Endeavour we work with your business needs in mind, following a step by step process to ensure that your Microsoft Dynamics NAV upgrade can be configured to meet your unique requirements and complex business needs.
Our ERP consultants are experts in their field and leverage ERP best-practices; Change Management and Training tactics; Manufacturing and Distribution best practices; and work with our Technical Dynamics NAV team of consultants and developers to ensure that your business targets can be met.
A key input to your Microsoft Dynamics NAV upgrade and ERP roadmap is the financial impact of upgrading your ERP now, while delaying your ERP cloud migration by a few years. From an upgrade and NAV ISV configuration perspective there is a lot of assistance that you will need from the ERP experts at Endeavour Solutions to perform an analysis and strategic FIT-GAP assessment between your current version of Dynamics NAV, SQL Server and Windows with the recommended configuration choices in NAV 2018, or Business Central. NAV 3rd party addon integrations and re-configuration will need to be performed, key financial reports will need to be upgraded, and your user community will need to be trained not only on features and functions, but also on your optimized and redesigned business processes. Endeavour can also assist with Private Cloud hosting for all recent versions of Dynamics NAV, including NAV 2013 / 2013 R2, NAV 2015 / 2015 R2, and NAV 2018. see Dynamics ERP Cloud Hosting

Cloud ERP? NAV 2019 has been branded as Dynamics 365 Business Central
For Microsoft Dynamics NAV clients who are ready to migrate to the new Microsoft Cloud-ERP, there is a migration path from NAV to Dynamics 365 Business Central, however, it is not quick, nor is it simple.
Luckily many of the screens, functions and business processes are quite similar, so end-user training will be faster; however from a technical perspective, any modifications, 3rd party add-ons, reports, and integrations that you have now, will each need to be re-built for Business Central.
