Present Version of Dynamics NAV – Although it is possible to upgrade from any version of Dynamics NAV, it is important for customers to identify which NAV version they are deploying.

Usually, businesses with versions beyond three releases old necessitate a major upgrade as they have skipped so many modifications.

Certain customizations will not upgrade easily amongst versions and customers will lose bundled competencies on transitional versions that could have spared them big bucks.
