eService Application Hosting NAV (SaaS) – Microsoft Dynamics NAV Online
Microsoft Dynamics NAV is one of the most flexible, feature-rich and powerful ERP software solutions available. It’s also a great fit with many smaller and mid-sized organisations. So is cloud computing, and for most businesses, cloud computing is no longer a conversation piece. It’s a reality.
getsix® firmly believes that cloud computing is the way forward for many applications, including ERP software. That’s why we offer Microsoft Dynamics NAV as a cloud, or SaaS option.
Microsoft Dynamics NAV Online has all the functionality and flexibility of the on-premise version, but without the capital expenditure. It makes your ERP software a true operational cost, rather than a capital cost. What’s more, you only pay for what you actually use on a per user per month basis. You can change the number of users each month, and your costs are fully transparent, measurable and controllable. Plus you can stop using the software whenever you want – we only need a month’s notice and will not tie you in to a long-term contract.
Why Choose Microsoft Dynamics NAV in the Cloud?
There are a wide variety of reasons businesses choose ERP solutions as cloud-based deployments. getsix® has found that the most common reasons, and arguably the most compelling, are:
- Making the ERP solution an operational cost, rather than a capital expenditure;
- Reduced hardware and IT resource requirements;
- Cost-effectiveness of outsourcing the management of your infrastructure;
- Ease of deployment and guaranteed service level agreements;
- High levels of security, data protection and back-up – beyond that, many on-premise deployments.

A key advantage of using the cloud-based version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV from getsix® is that we offer a fully comprehensive service. Management of the infrastructure, including firewalls, load balancing, storage systems, daily back-ups, licences and much more are all included. We use powerful infrastructure to deliver high performance levels – the software works quickly, smoothly and efficiently. Plus we offer guaranteed up time of well over 99%.
Customisations, Configurations and Add-On Applications
In the past, some cloud-based business software solutions have been limited in terms of the amount of customisations and configurations that users, administrators and even business partners can do. However, with Microsoft Dynamics NAVOnline, there are no limitations to the customisations possible. There are also no limitations to the use of add-on applications or third-party products. Due to our IT Services, we are able to customise the NAV application according the special needs of our customers.

Reliable and secure SaaS software hosting service
SaaS for Microsoft Dynamics NAV
Software-as-a-Service or SaaS is a method of delivering software over the Internet. It is an on-demand software service where a SaaS vendor hosts the application and the data in a central location and provides end-users access to the software remotely. SaaS is very beneficial to small and mid-sized businesses because such businesses have the need for technology but that doesn’t have the capital to invest in software, server hardware and other infrastructures.
SaaS can be seen as an alternative hosting option for Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Users rent the software and access web-based Microsoft Dynamics NAV over the Internet from anywhere in the world. With SaaS, businesses do not need to worry about maintenance and infrastructure, such as installation, set-up, server, and software. Internet is the only infrastructure an end user will need to run Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
Traditionally, users own the software and they are required to pay for the Dynamics NAV package and license. SaaS, on the other hand, lets end-users access Dynamics NAV at a monthly subscription price. This pay-as-you-go model is one of the greatest advantages of SaaS. At SimCrest, you pay a one-time startup fee plus a low monthly fee for fully functional Dynamics NAV including server space and licensing from the time of Go-Live. Simply put, the recurring subscription fee is on a per user basis and it includes the cost of hardware, software, enhancement fee, licensing, IT support, maintenance, and backups.
What are the benefits?
Lowered Upfront Cost
The state-of-the-art technology is what every organization wants. However, the upfront investment may be a cost barrier to many businesses, especially small and mid-sized organizations. Since no additional hardware is needed, and payment is made monthly, businesses can save a huge initial cost. This is a cost savings, which can be reallocated to business operations and used to fund business growth. Having no upfront investment in either hardware or software allows SaaS to relieve a company’s financial situation and helps to enhance the cash flow.
Less Need of Internal IT Staff and Support
By outsourcing software to a SaaS provider, organizations would need fewer internal IT personnel. Instead of assisting user support and maintaining aging infrastructure, internal IT personnel can concentrate on improving the day-to-day technical operations and making strategic decisions.
Peace of Mind
Some businesses may lack internal IT staff to support software and some may feel the maintenance of IT infrastructure is complex and time-consuming. However, as a SaaS provider hosts the software, they handle all the tasks, including server, server support, licensing, maintenance, data backups, and on-going IT support, for you. The SaaS model leaves you peace of mind and allows you to focus more on core competencies to run your business.
SaaS enables you to save more by giving you the flexibility to adjust the total number of user licensing. Since subscription fee is charged monthly based on per user, you can easily change the number of users every month to fit personnel situations and avoid the expenditure of unused licensing.
Through Internet, SaaS enables users to access Dynamics NAV anytime and anywhere. As long as there is Internet, businesses benefit from better business mobility and global availability, which lead to enhanced productivity and increased control of information.
