Upgrading your customers solutions from the classic version of NAV starts with analysis and defining the project scope. Simplanova knows that this process takes time and discussion with the customer which are usually non-billable hours so, in order to make this process easier and based on statistics, we have released a free object usage log tool for Dynamics Partners.
This tool tracks the user activity for a selected period of time and creates a record in a table everytime an object was run. By deploying this tool to a production database of your customer’s classic version of NAV you will be able to track the usage of different object groups: i.e. you may select to track report usage only. Partners are able to select which user activity to track.
The biggest cost for upgrading the classic versions of NAV is in object conversion. After analyzing clients Dynamics NAV object usage partners are able to upgrade only these objects, which are really used the client, define the scope more clearly and thus lower the upgrade price.
