Microsoft Dynamics (Navision) Pricing: How Much Does NAV Really Cost?
So you’re thinking about replacing your existing ERP software and you are concerned because you know it will cost you money, time, and manpower.
If your current ERP or financial systems are no longer meeting your needs, you’re probably asking yourself, “How much does a new ERP system cost?” or “How much will it cost to upgrade my existing ERP system?”
This are valid questions and ones we often hear. As you probably suspect, it depends. It depends on your current software package(s). It depends on whether you decide to upgrade or go with a completely new package. Even if you know you want to deploy Microsoft Dynamics NAV, it depends on your business requirements now and in the future. For those companies that want to upgrade Dynamics NAV, it depends on the business requirements, your customizations, and what version you are currently on. Depending on your specific needs and goals, the cost of a Dynamics NAV solution can vary in price significantly.
Where to start
We recommend (and require for our ERP engagements) that you first start with a business analysis using a Certified Business Analysis Professional (CBAP). You should be prepared to pay for this engagement. But don’t skimp—the document produced from the BA engagement will be the basis for your ERP project. And be sure to include ALL stakeholders.
You probably aren’t ready to engage with a CBAP right now and you’re just looking for ballpark numbers. To help get you started, ArcherPoint has written a few blogs that offer some guidance on what to expect for an ERP implementation or an upgrade. Note that these blogs are specific to Microsoft Dynamics, but offer useful advice for mid- to large-sized companies, regardless of what ERP you choose:
