SAP B1 vs MS Navision
As a Microsoft Dynamics and SAP B1 consultant, we get a lot of inquiry into which ERP platform is best to run their business. Truth is, both SAP B1 and Microsoft Dynamics Navision make extremely flexible ERP options that can be scaled up to the enterprise level.
SAP B1 vs MS Navision : Deployment Differences
Perhaps the most important difference between SAP B1 and Dynamics Navision is where we see these platforms getting deployed and how much they cost. Navision is used in the small-to-midsized space much more often, and SAP B1 is typically more expensive to implement and maintain than Navision.
Deployment Among Industry Verticals – SAP B1 vs MS Navision
We find that SAP Business One is very strong and well-used among Information Technology and Telecommunications companies, and tends to be a more verticalized (industry-specific) solution than Microsoft. Some other industries where SAP B1 excels are research, human resources and healthcare.
In comparison to SAP B1, Dynamics Navision is often deployed in a wide variety of industry verticals and settings. Nav tends to be a more flexible product and in addition to being popular in fields like healthcare and IT, it also is a serviceable option in the food/beverage and computer software space as well.
SAP B1 vs MS Navision : Features & Reporting
Both SAP B1 and Navision have robust features and reporting engines with some slight differences. For starters, SAP B1 lets you easily access Crystal Reports (it is more difficult to integrate Crystal Reports into Nav). That being said, Dynamics Nav comes out of the box with Business Intelligence (BI) tools for delivering insights into customer behavior. Dynamics Nav also feels more like a native Microsoft product, which can help increase and drive user adoption.
