A Fixed Price Approach to Dynamics NAV Upgrades

by | Aug 6, 2021 | Dynamics NAV Upgrade, Microsoft Dynamics NAV

For a Microsoft Dynamics NAV system to meet unique requirements and be compliant legally, organisations invest a significant amount of time and money. So why would they disregard the substantial investment they have made, and discard critical developments and data which support their day-to-day processes?

At Mercurius IT, we understand the uniqueness of this development to the organisation. Therefore, instead of ignoring this investment and only upgrading the standard data, we upgrade everything.

That’s why we approach the upgrade holistically and include the following:

  • Maintaining existing developments and customisations
  • Converting all existing data
  • Training to explain the benefits and differences of Business Central
  • We upgrade your whole system

Not only did Mercurius beat our existing partner’s quote by a significant margin, they did it at a fixed price - removing our commercial risk.

In the end, they guided us carefully through the process and also implemented some great improvements to our business using the new features.

What happens to existing developments?

We have developed a tool to provide a clear report of your whole system, including all developments. This enables you to make an informed decision on how much to take with you on your upgrade journey to Business Central.

When upgrading to Business Central with us, you can take your developments with you as extensions. This safeguards any future upgrades with minimal impact on effort and cost.

Existing Customisations Migration
What happens to existing data?

Ineffective data conversion is the number 1 cause of failed upgrades.

At Mercurius IT, we don’t just give templates and wish you luck. Just like with developments and customisations, your data is under your control.

There are 2 options available:

  • Start fresh and bring forward all the masters, opening balances, and open entries
  • Mercurius IT carries all your existing data to Business Central, including what’s in your development

No matter which option you choose, we will be with you for each step.

Existing Data Migration
Is training included?

To ensure your team can make the most of this new technology, we will train you on the new features of Business Central as part of the upgrade process.

You will be familiar with certain process in NAV, however, some of these are different in Business Central. We make sure your team knows how to complete these processes in a new way, so that efficiency is assured.

These different processes include but are not limited to:

  • Customer payment registration
  • Combine shipment
  • Dimension correction
Is the whole system upgraded?

How much time and effort would it take for you to upgrade each module of your system sequentially?

It isn’t enough to only upgrade small chunks of your system, especially since it’s crucial to have an end-to-end solution.

Therefore, we upgrade your whole system at once. We don’t charge piecemeal because that would only increase the overheads and therefore the overall cost of the project.

Our holistic approach ensures minimal delays so that your end-to-end solution meets your business requirements on time.

All this is done for a fixed price, providing financial security

NAV 2013 was not providing new requirements for our business, and it did not support all Microsoft applications. For this reason, we upgraded to Business Central 365 via Mercurius team with their experience completing live transitions.

We received fast support and solutions for different sophisticated issues. We believe that current and future NAV needs will be managed better with Mercurius IT. Thank you.

We’ve been working with Mercurius for more than 5 years, they both implemented and support our NAV system. We’ve found NAV to be a great end-to-end solution for our business and it performs all our organisational processes extremely well.

Mercurius have always been very responsive to our needs and continue to offer great pro-active advice and guidance on how we can improve our business with NAV using both existing and new features. I would be happy to recommend Microsoft Dynamics NAV as a Business System; as well as Mercurius to anyone looking for a partner who is able to offer excellent skills and a high level of service at a very competitive rate.
