Microsoft dynamics 365 business central logo

Dynamics 365 Business Central on premise (formerly NAV), has for many years, enjoyed an  enviable reputation as a scalable, affordable solution with an entry point of 3 users and practically unlimited user possibilities.  From October 2018 the on premise / private cloud hosted version of NAV was re-branded Dynamics 365 Business Central On Premise.  It is expected that Microsoft will cease to offer perpetual licensing within the next 5 years.  The cost of the Business Ready Enhancement Plan for on-premise versions of NAV and Business Central is planned to increase every year from 2023. 

The lifecycle of each on premise version is now shortening.  This will result in on-prem implementations requiring more regular upgrades to remain in mainstream support with Microsoft.

“ When QI suggested we switch our entire system from Sage to Dynamics 365 Business Central we were sceptical and quite phased at the prospect of learning an entirely new system, however QI made it happen with minimal disruption. They offered excellent training sessions so we knew what we were doing before going live. The tuition received has enabled us to grasp the new software concepts with confidence bringing time saving results to our Company, letting us concentrate on the day to day running of the business "
