The position before Microsoft Dynamics

Before 1 April 2019, we were working with Navision 2009. Our Navision 2009 was largely a customised product, which meant that an upgrade was not possible; as a result, we had to install a new version.

A partner that understands our industry and speaks our language
After an investigation into the alternatives, we decided to continue with the Dynamics NAV product. This properly reflects our business model (several sites that enjoy a large degree of autonomy) and offers the functions that we were looking for.

What we were looking for was a partner that understood our industry and spoke our language. In other words a partner that, for instance, understands the characteristics of the services provided in the maritime industry. This led us to Logic Vision and their “maritime” module.
Logic Vision has demonstrated that it understands our sector. This was the spur to go ahead with Dynamics NAV.

In the course of installing Dynamics NAV 2017, the Logic Vision module was modified for us in a number of areas, resulting in a perfectly-adjusted system without customisation, allowing Logic Vision to continue developing its module. And more importantly for the project: the Logic Vision team has demonstrated that it has the experience and personal skills to successfully complete a project of this kind.
