From the 1st October Microsoft announced there will be changes to future licencing policies for the Dynamics NAV and Dynamics 365 Business Central platforms. As each organisation is unique please get in touch to discuss how these changes will affect you.
We will be covering these changes at our annual customer day on the 22nd of November
Pertinent points to note:
• Business Central will use a named user licencing model
• You have until the 31st of December 2018 to buy Microsoft Dynamics NAV
• From the 1st of January 2019 new licenses will only be available for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central
If you want to discuss this, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
The two commercial options available for you for purchasing Business Central On Prem are:
If you decide to stay on Perpetual then Microsoft will give you 2 named users for every Concurrent user you have on your licence, there are 2 types of Named user, Essentials and Premium, the latter being for those companies using Manufacturing and / or Service Management. If you have limited users today, then they will be traded on a 1-for-1 basis for the new Team Member user and Device licences will also be done on a 1-for-1. Your version of NAV and the functionality you have purchased will dictate what your trade-in is worth. You should check now to see what you are entitled to.

If you opt for the Subscription licence model then Microsoft have announced several options that acknowledge your years of commitment to the Dynamics NAV brand:
Option 1 – You can transition fully to a Subscription-based model and receive a 40% discount of the monthly Subscription price. Customers that chose this route will no longer be paying BREP.
Option 2 – You can transition to a Subscription-based model but choose to carry on paying your BREP. For customers taking this route they will be given an 80% discount on the monthly Subscription price.
Regardless of which option you choose you will have the opportunity to use the Cloud Add-On for an additional monthly fee per user. This means you can have an on-premise or private cloud solution that syncs key data to the Microsoft cloud giving you the opportunity to take advantage of the Intelligent Edge, a set of cloud based connected systems and devices that gather and analyse your data giving users get real-time insights and experiences.
These discounts will be in place until 30th June 2021.
Pricing will be different for every customer. Please do not hesitate to get in touch and we can look at all of your options, advising an informed choice.
