Exciting new purchase options for NAV 2013 announced at World Partner Conference

Partners attending the World Partner Conference (WPC) were very excited about Microsoft's announcement of a perpetual licensing plan for on-premise deployments and upgrades to NAV 2013. This new approach will simplify the licensing process, but more importantly, it promises to offer more flexibility and make it more affordable for customers to purchase licenses based on how the user will be accessing NAV. You can stay abreast of the status of the purchase plan as well as other NAV 2013 news by watching the new NAV 2013 News area of the ArcherPoint website. Bookmark it now!

NAV 2013 will introduce two new client options – the web client and the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Portal framework for Microsoft SharePoint. In addition, the Employee Portal will be discontinued and removed from the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Pricelist effective October 1, 2012. If you're using the Employee Portal and plan to upgrade to NAV 2013, contact your ArcherPoint representative to discuss options.
