        The installation of new software versions (NAV service and client software) on servers and workstations

      • Training

        New versions of Microsoft Dynamics NAV often bring new features. The training of your employees in this context is not included in our cost estimate.

      If, after the project, errors are discovered that result from the upgrade, we will fix them without any further costs.
