From Navision to Microsoft Dynamics NAV to Dynamics 365 Business Central

A dear child has many names – and the ERP system, Dynamics 365 Business Central, is no exception.

The story begins with Navision

The story of Navision began here in Denmark in 1983. The software company, PC&C A/S later Navision Software A/S, was the first to develop a user-friendly IT-solution with basic accounting functionalities to a single user. Later, Navision was developed to include several users at the same time and was also developed to involve more processes and departments.

The next 20 years Navision grows with more functionalities and can at on one point at the journey be classified as an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system.

Navision becomes Microsoft Navision

After several years of cooperating with Navision Software A/S, Microsoft acquired the software company and the ERP-system in 2002. Navision now becomes a part of Microsoft Business Solutions and got the name: Microsoft Navision. The acquisition of the software made it possible for Microsoft to offer an ERP-system to small and medium-sized enterprises.

In this period of time, Microsoft Navision developed to support the corporation between employees, customers and partners based on SharePoint technology.
