From Classic to Role-tailored Client (RTC)

With the release of NAV 2015 and the expiration of support for NAV 2009, the time to consider a comprehensive upgrade is here.

This is a MAJOR upgrade and requires careful analysis by experienced NAV consultant/developers, because:

  1. there are some significant functionality changes in the data base such as the migration of the North America kitting feature into the base manufacturing code.
  2. the Classic client is no longer supported (except for developers who still use the old interface).  This means that users will need training on how to use the new interface
  3. the upgrade involves several steps such as from NAV5 to NAV 2009 to NAV 2009 R2 to NAV 2013 to NAV 2015.
  4. in this case BOTH executable and database versions must be upgraded

Because of the many steps involved, a careful analysis of your customizations is necessary, as it may also make sense to re-implement NAV versus upgrading through all the steps above.

Please insist on access to a highly experienced NAV developer to provide the best path forward.
