How Sure Step for Microsoft Dynamics NAV Is Finally Catching Up to AX and CRM

January 15 2010

Sure Step, the official Microsoft implementation methodology for business management solutions from the Microsoft Dynamics family, is gaining momentum and becoming increasingly interesting to Microsoft partners and customers alike. It is robust and comprehensive, yet adaptable and simple to use.

For some reason, though, its support for Microsoft Dynamics NAV has always seemed to lag behind that for Dynamics CRM or AX. Is the situation going to stay that way, or the things are moving forward for NAV?

When working with our clients in the product review and selection phase, they often comment on the competitive advantage that SureStep gives Microsoft over other software vendors such as Epicor, Infor and others. Certainly these other vendors demonstrate an established methodology and approach, but the depth and scope of offerings in the SureStep tools provides a feeling of confidence and assurance. I am very glad to see NAV offerings catch up!
