Call us today for a free consultation on the benefits of NAV 2013, and find out how easy it is to upgrade your Dynamics NAV 4, 5 or 2009 system to 2013.
Safe, Efficient UpgradesEvery business goes through change and part of that includes changes in what you require as an ERP solution. The word ‘upgrade’ can drive fear into the heart of business owners as it is often associated with huge costs and excessive downtime.
Fenwick works hard to make your upgrades easy. Whether you are an existing or a new client, we take you through a step by step approach so you stay in control of what is happening and the process is smooth and stress free.
PreparationWe will need to install or confirm existing infrastructure and install software to your system. We review the Servers available, and install upgraded server software and services. We also install the new NAV client software where required.
We will then run a workshop aiming to confirm which modifications are required and which are obsolete, as well as review new NAV or Add-on functionality.
Development We will merge any customisations that are still required in the new Microsoft Dynamics NAV software. At the same time, we will perform a general tidy up of modifications, to ensure they adhere to the standards of the new version.
Some data structures will have changed between the versions of Microsoft Dynamics NAV. An Upgrade Toolkit is provided to assist the transition of data between versions of Microsoft Dynamics NAV and to the SQL Server Platform. We will utilise this, plus any custom tools necessary for nonstandard data to migrate a recent copy of your data to the new version to allow testing.
Testing Using the upgraded test database, we will:
• Test modifications still function as required
• Check data transferred successfully
• Test the database on any new or upgraded infrastructure
• Review SQL Server performance
Testing is carried out jointly by Fenwick Software and your staff, with a Conference Room Pilot to verify new or changed functionality if required.
Preparing for Go Live We will review the results of the Test phase to confirm we are ok to Go Live, and provide User Training for any new functionality.
Cut Over and Go Live Cutover is the process of moving from your existing system onto the new version. Using the timeframes recorded in the test data conversion, we will know the downtime required. Often an overnight or weekend cutover is required for minimal impact to your business.
Our consultants will be on site to provide support during the first few days of live running on your new system.
