Licensing of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017

When deciding how to set up your NAV environment, you need to choose between perpetual and subscription licensing models.

As you might expect, perpetual licenses only need to be purchased once. Subscriptions have lower upfront costs but are billed monthly based on your functional and user-level choices.

In her pair of blogs and webinars, Pat Lacouture explains this process for both User Licensing and Functional Licensing.

Need a New Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 Partner?

As with any ERP solution, the key to unlocking the potential of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 is a great relationship with your partner. Your Microsoft Partner is the one who both implements your system and supports your team with ongoing concerns and changes.

For Innovia, though, this relationship goes even deeper. We do not interact with our customers purely on a transactional level; we also invest our experienced team's time and talent into growing their businesses. This commitment leads us to do things a little differently. We come on-site regularly to assess your team's needs and have our account managers, who are all world-class business leaders in and of themselves, help you make business decisions strategically. We do not charge for this service, by the way! Also, when we know of an ISV solution that works most effectively for you, we introduce you to them, rather than try to convince you to buy more hours from us.

Oh, and don't forget our annual Customer Conference event, where we cover your lodging costs and do not charge registration. It is always full of sessions from both Innovia's team and ISV partners on the latest solutions available.
