No Better Time to Buy – Microsoft Dynamics Price Change 16 Jan 2016

Microsoft Dynamics AX, Microsoft Dynamics GP, and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Module Based Licensing and Business Ready Licensing price changes – effective January 2016


Microsoft has announced that it is realigning Microsoft Dynamics NAV, CRM & AX user prices across versions and licensing models effective 1 January 2016, resulting in a price increase on the additional users you might need in the future. So, if you think that you will need more users in the next 6 to 12 months, there is no better time to buy those users before the prices go up on 1 January 2016.

This change will not impact the enhancement plan cost of users you have licensed prior to 1 January 2016, subject to the Customer Services and Support Plan Policy.

Also, as you might recall, Microsoft launched Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 in October 2012 with Perpetual Licensing – a new simplified licensing model with one edition, one functionality pack, and two user types. We would like to take this opportunity to tell you why existing customers are upgrading to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016. If you are interested, I can tell you about the favorable upgrade conditions you might be entitled to as a customer with an active maintenance plan.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM – FieldOne for Oil Field Services

Microsoft acquires FieldOne, global provider of field service management solutions for the enterprise


 

I’m pleased to announce that Microsoft has reached an agreement to acquire FieldOne Systems LLC (“FieldOne”), a world-class provider of field service management solutions that allow organizations to better manage and deliver service to their customers in the field.

In today’s connected world, people expect to engage and be engaged by organizations in new ways, in ways that are most convenient for them. To help businesses respond to these changing expectations, we are committed to providing the most comprehensive customer service offering, and this includes the best field service capabilities. Field service management is a specific but critically important area of customer service, providing companies with the ability to deliver end-to-end field service. This is a unique, and transformational point in time for these solutions as enterprises look to improve their responsiveness to customers with service in the field – taking service directly to the customer anytime a service cannot be managed by phone or other channels.

In this critical area, FieldOne really stands out. They have the baseline functionality that organizations need to drive a more effective field service operation. They are a leading provider of end-to-end solutions that enable businesses to drive revenue, reduce costs and deliver great customer service. Their industry-leading solution specializes in delivering a full set of capabilities that include work order management, automated scheduling, asset contract, inventory and procurement management, workflow capabilities and mobile collaboration – providing enterprises with a comprehensive modern field service solution. This gives companies the ability to do things such as adjusting routing on the fly and delivering service arrival estimate times within a smaller window, which is essential for more personal customer engagement.

FieldOne is a great fit for Dynamics CRM adding to our extensive customer service capabilities – which includes chat, knowledge management and self-service functionality from Parature which we acquired in January of 2014.  Like Parature, FieldOne is offered to customers as a cloud service. It’s built on Microsoft technology for fast integration, it already works great with other Microsoft productivity offerings like Office 365 and SharePoint, and has cross-platform capabilities meaning it can work on different devices enhancing the mobile experience which is so critically important in field service management. FieldOne was built from the ground up to leverage Dynamics CRM, and this means that our customers can take advantage of its capabilities right away.

Today’s announcement also reflects the investments we are making to deliver true systems of intelligence – enhancing our current offerings with predictive learning and analytics to deliver an intelligent, proactive customer engagement solution. Field service businesses are aggressively trying to move away from a reactive break-fix model to a predictive service based model. With this acquisition, Microsoft can help companies tap the potential of predictive service by bringing together the powerful combination of FieldOne, Azure IoT and Cortana Analytics. That means that organizations can use insights that effectively provide servicing proactively while streamlining the provisioning of service to significantly reduce costs.

Microsoft is dedicated to providing customers with complete and comprehensive solutions that address their end-to-end service needs. Today’s acquisition is a major step forward in providing the most complete customer service offering in the market through Dynamics CRM. And with the potential to enhance these capabilities through machine learning and predictive analytics, we are changing the game in customer service.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV Universal App (Dynamics NAV v2.0)

Maybe you’re already familiar with Dynamics NAV on your tablet. Well, things just got even more flexible. You can now experience the power and simplicity of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Universal App on your preferred iOS, Android or Windows device – be it phone, phablet, tablet, laptop, or desktop – it’s all up to you. Switch to your favorite device on the go, during meetings, in the office, at home on the couch using the same app, accessing your Dynamics NAV business data from everywhere.

microsoft dynamics nav ios, android and windows app

 

For Customers

Download and install Dynamics NAV from the Windows Store, App Store, or Google Play. You sign in using your usual credentials and the app connects to your Dynamics NAV 2016 server, on premise or in the cloud. If you already have Dynamics NAV v.1.1 installed, this will automatically be updated to v2.0 (unless you specifically selected not to update automatically).

Navigate your business data using a fast and fluid interface which leverages design concepts from modern Windows and Office 365, whilst remaining distinctly Dynamics NAV. Do more on the go with capabilities such as send to Excel or Office 365, up-to-date charts and KPIs, emailing of sales quotes and invoices, and shoot and attach pictures with your camera.

Your executives, sales field, service technicians, warehouse workers and many more can now get access to the data they need from the device they prefer. Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 comes ready for small businesses with the Small Business role. For midsized businesses seeking custom solutions for various roles, talk to your Partner.

For Partners

Almost all content within the app consists of application pages coming from your Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 server, and they are rendered using our Tablet or Phone client, designed exclusively for touch.

This makes development for tablets and phones similar to development for any other Microsoft Dynamics NAV client! Create new pages or customize existing pages in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Development Environment on your workstation, and it is ready for iOS, Android, and Windows. Test your role-tailored solution directly on your workstation using the Tablet or Phone client running in the browser. You don’t even need to go out and purchase a bunch of tablets of different sizes, versions and platforms.

Since the Tablet and Phone clients are based on Web client technology, you get to reuse your investments in application objects, business logic, and modern client add-ins, and you administer, license, secure, and maintain it in precisely the same way.

Compatibility

  • If you have Microsoft Dynamics NAV app v1.1, you cannot connect to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 until you have updated to Microsoft Dynamics NAV Universal App to v2.0.
  • If you have Microsoft Dynamics NAV app v2.0 on the tablet, you can connect to both Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 and Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016.
  • If you have Microsoft Dynamics NAV v2.0 on the phone, you can only connect to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016.
