Microsoft Dynamics NAV licensing models

Every company has its own specific requirements, which is why various licensing models are also available for Microsoft Dynamics™ NAV.

Perpetual licensing

As of 1 December 2013 the only licensing model available for new Dynamics NAV 2013 and higher licenses will be the Perpetual Licensing Program (PLP), which makes licensing considerably simpler. The entire solution can be licensed via four core components:

  • Starter Pack
    The Starter Pack provides users with core functionality in the areas of finance and inventory control and includes 3 full user licenses.
  • Extended Pack
    Customers wishing to deploy additional Microsoft Dynamics NAV functionality can license the optional, supplementary Extended Pack. The Extended Pack provides extended functionality for logistics, production and services. The Extended Pack also includes additional customising objects that allow comprehensive modifications to be made. The first three users included in the Starter Pack have access to the extended functions.

Access to functionality is controlled via user licenses based on concurrent users, i.e. the licenses are not tied to named users.
The perpetual licensing model provides for two basic types of user that differ in the degree of user access:

  • Full users – full read / write rights
  • Limited users – full read / restricted write rights

Any mix of full users and limited users can work side by side. It is possible to add additional users to a license at any time.

Business Ready Licensing

The Business Ready Licensing (BRL) model is available for existing licenses of Dynamics NAV 2009. The model is user-based, i.e. the costs of the solution depend on the number of users working with the software. There are 2 variants of the BRL model:

  • Dynamics NAV Business Essentials
    is the licensing model for companies with limited functional requirements.
  • Dynamics NAV Advanced Management
    is available for companies with more demanding functional requirements and high rates of growth and includes additional functional modules.

Models for existing licenses (other than PLP and BRL):

These licensing models are only available for existing customers to extend existing Dynamics NAV licenses (older than 2009).

  • Module-based licensing
  • NAV for small companies
