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:
- 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.
- 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
- the upgrade involves several steps such as from NAV5 to NAV 2009 to NAV 2009 R2 to NAV 2013 to NAV 2015.
- 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.
