SAP Business One and MS Dynamics NAV- Comparison

SAP Business One and MS Dynamics NAV - A Comparison

SAP Business One and MS Dynamics NAV, two most popular ERP systems available for Small and Midsize companies. When people want to compare these two, really they found difficulty. The comparison is almost head to head and often the key criteria becomes which one can fulfill most requirements with less customizations and in lesser cost. But if you think in long term, these two factors should not be the prime judgement point because within a blink of an eye you will have few GB of data punched into the ERP system in few months, and from that point its really difficult to turn back.

Here I have tried to provide a comparison from several sources, am not sure if all the data are absolutely correct or not because of the new versions and patch levels getting released in each month in both ERPs, different sources like SCN, Microsoft Partner’s Blogs, eBooks used for my research where the ERP version are not mentioned. I am sure there will be some points where the reader will disagree, but I believe if not all then most points will be accurate.

  • I’ve been using NAV for a long time and I’m now of switching – thanks for very clear comparison. Still I think that on balance NAV looks better than SBO.
    We’re used to using stand-alone workflow software anyways, but it’d be soo nice to see an integration.
