Dynamics GP and Dynamics NAV: similarities and differences
Although each of these solutions provide specific services for detailed requirements, both Dynamics NAV and Dynamics GP have a certain level of crossover and similarity. The quick comparison below gives a simple outline as to where the two match and differ in basic functionality.
Microsoft Dynamics GP
Dynamics GP is a far richer out-of-the-box ERP solution. Although not as adaptable as Dynamics NAV, the system is faster and easier to implement and has many add-ons to expand its features.
Microsoft created Dynamics GP for businesses who are satisfied tailoring their workflow according to the Dynamics processes. It has many features and functions but isn’t as flexible and adaptable as Dynamics NAV.
Microsoft Dynamics NAV
Highly customisable and with the ability to develop specific functionality, Dynamics NAV has worked well for organisations that want a system that can scale and expand as the size of their operation grows.
Dynamics NAV tracks and automates customisation in order to keep upgrades and maintenance on track, making it well suited to bespoke businesses that need to leverage particular capabilities.
