The project

Implementing an ERP product like Microsoft Dynamics NAV is not just installing a software package and starting to use it. Each part of your company will have to make decisions how to integrate their work with the software. This very often leads to an interesting new look with respect to your company's way of work.

Standard, customized, or both

There are several ways of implementing Dynamics NAV. It is highly important to make a decision what kind of implementation you want and adjust the implementation accordingly.

Compared to when it was introduced in 1995, Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 is a mature ERP package with all the built-in functionalities we discussed in this book. On top of this standard product, resellers have built horizontal and vertical solutions called add-on products. These two combined offer powerful solutions for companies that cannot work with the standard product but are flexible enough to use a vertical solution.
