Simplified Pricing of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 and NAV 2013 for SMBs Announced at WPC 2012

Pricing NAV or GP 2013 on a napkin?

Simplicity was the word of the day at WPC 2012 for Microsoft Dynamics GP and NAV partners learning about the new perpetual licensing scheme that will take effect for on-premise deployments and upgrades to NAV 2013 and GP 2013.  The changes will result in far fewer individual line items in the price list, with the aim of making it easier for partners to generate quotes and customers to understand them.

The goal of the changes are to drive volume, optimize licensing for SMBs, and to simplify the approach for perpetual license sales (subscription pricing will be a different issue altogether, Microsoft says). The changes will reduce prices for many customers, especially those with less than 100 users, though larger implementations and some others could see license costs increase, which, Microsoft told the partner audience, is by design.

New Price for NAV

Guys, I have run the numbers three times and I can't believe the improvement for the under 20 User Deals. This will make us very price competative to EPICOR, M2M, Infor, and others. Thank you Microsoft for re-evaluating your price points. Rick Baxter
