Packaging Options

Microsoft Dynamics NAV has a range of built in functionality available, reducing the need for customisation and bespoke work. Depending on your needs, there are two packages you can acquire, the standard pack and the extended pack.

The starter pack enables you to:

  • Gain control and insight over your finances
  • Purchase and sell items and materials
  • Pay and manage employees
  • Manage the billables generated by consultants
  • Effectively manage supply chains
  • Manage sales and inventory
  • Manage projects and the resources allocated to them
  • Gain clearer business insights through reporting functionalities

The Microsoft Dynamics NAV extended pack enables you to integrate core financials and distribution management with broader functionality extensions, such as:

  • Manufacturing to support and control the manufacturing environment
  • Warehousing management to support operations

Licensing

We’re able to offer our customers two methods of procuring licenses from Microsoft. Depending on your situation, you can opt for either a traditional capex purchase or a software subscription model.

Perpetual licenses (Capex)

When you purchase perpetual licencing, you are reserving the right to use Dynamics NAV for however long you like. Essentially, you own the licenses.

  • Microsoft enhancement fee – in return for an annual fee, Microsoft will provide you with the latest version of the software
  • Concurrent user licensing – enables you to buy just enough licenses to cover peak demand
  • Full user and light user options
  • Deploy either on cloud, our Private cloud or on premise
  • Price protection – by buying your license you lock in your license value and are not subject to price increases on licenses already purchase

Subscription licenses (Opex)

With Subscription Licensing, customers subscribe to the rights to use Microsoft software and services instead of owning them.

  • Flexible named user pricing
  • Pay as you go – whilst you have to have named users you can increase or decrease the number of licenses you pay for
  • Full and light user options
  • Deploy on Azure
  • No Microsoft enhancement fee – the annual fee is included in each named user license

Finance options

Acora works with Syscap and Microsoft Finance to be able to provide financing to help you spread the cost of your new solution and to enable you to defer the cost in line with deployment so that you are seeing the benefit of the system as you pay for it.

  • Software purchase, services and support can all be included in the finance arrangement
  • Payment options ranging from 12 -60 months
  • Monthly or quarterly payment options
  • Low upfront costs

Customisations and bespoke work

Dynamics NAV offers customers the power of choice.

The software is functionally rich but if customisations are required then NAV’s flexibility comes into its own. Its adaptability means that custom built functionality and applications can be easily added, resulting in an even more effective solution. Acora’s development team are so experienced they have built two of their own custom add-ons, to meet the unique needs of customers. These are now available to all our customers, which we hope evidences our industry experience and the flexibility of the Dynamics NAV.

Our Item Replenishment Routine module keeps our customers’ inventory free from overstocking, and our Quality Assurance module means they can easily maintain high quality product standards.

The calibre of Acora’s design and development team was fundamental to helping us maximise our investment in the NAV software. The automated invoicing process we now have in place has significantly improved our processes and margin control, and as such has resulted in a significant impact on our bottom line.
