Difference between Dynamics GP and Dynamics NAV

Microsoft Dynamics GP and Microsoft Dynamics NAV are both comprehensive ERP solutions under the Microsoft Dynamics family. Both systems sport a familiar, intuitive user interface and functionalities that fulfill companies’ requirement on enabling business process.

In addition, specialized or vertical third party application can be easily and seamlessly integrated with Dynamics GP.

Dynamics NAV
Previously known as Navision, NAV was acquired by Microsoft a few years after GP. Unlike GP, NAV does not have the core module fully developed but the system has the ability to be completely customized according to business’ specific structure and needs.

This makes NAV ideal for niche businesses whose requirements change so quickly that no other off-the-shelf package can support. With source code available for developers, the system allows certified partner to improve additional functionalities within the software.
