These Reasons Speak for Themselves:

What are the Reasons for the ERP Upgrade?

Are you noticing signs that indicate the need for an ERP upgrade? The older your system, the more benefits arise from the technology of a new software solution – and thus from functionality and user-friendliness. Moreover, outdated versions lead to security vulnerabilities and eventually to the point where your version is no longer updateable. It doesn’t have to go that far. Lastly, with an upgrade, you modernize your workplace. We’ll give you three reasons why upgrading from Dynamics NAV or Navision to Dynamics 365 Business Central is worthwhile:

The older your version is, the more likely it is that Microsoft will discontinue support. Then, an upgrade becomes more of a necessity than an option.

Our Solution: ERP Upgrade

Our experts handle the ERP upgrade for you. However, not every upgrade process looks the same. Here are the possible approaches:

  • Technical upgrade only (when you lack capacity to deal with processes): You receive the latest version of the system, with your existing data and business processes migrated into the system without optimization.
  • Departmental phased upgrade (when you prefer a department-by-department approach): We migrate departments/areas into the new system step by step.
  • Comprehensive overhaul “starting from scratch” (the big picture): You take the opportunity of the upgrade to review your processes and achieve efficiency improvements, resulting in a new system that accurately reflects your business and does not carry any legacy issues.

  • Let's Get Started?

    Starting the ERP Upgrade

    Below, we outline the typical path to your personalized offer for an upgrade. It’s important to note: Not every project follows the same process. This depends, among other things, on the expertise on your side and the size of the company. Accordingly, we tailor the process individually.

    You will notice that we deliberately refrain from using a specification sheet or a requirements document for the ERP upgrade. For us, the collaborative agile development of the project plan holds high importance.

    • Non-Binding Inquiry
      You express your interest in an ERP upgrade. In your inquiry, you tell us about your project or the challenges you are facing.
    • Qualification of the Request

      We review your request. If we are confident that we can assist you, the next step is to assign the appropriate contact person. We will usually reach out to you promptly to gather some additional information.

    • Initial Consultation

      You have a meeting scheduled with one of our experts. In an informal initial conversation, you’ll get to know each other and both have the opportunity to see if there’s a good fit. Additionally, we’ll discuss your project in more detail and explain how we can help you specifically. We’ll also talk about required resources such as budget and timeframe. Furthermore, the personnel capacities on your side are an important topic. Why? Because the employees from all relevant departments need to support the IT company alongside their regular daily tasks, test functions, learn how to use the application, and provide feedback. The attitude needs to be right at this stage, and employees must be able to engage with the project.

    • Workshop
      The workshop (preferably in person) typically involves a larger group from both sides. From our side, involved and decision-making individuals participate, and from your side, the management and your future project leadership should attend. In order to proceed to a detailed proposal, we need your detailed requirements. To do this, we use, among other things, user stories following the schema: “In order to have this benefit, I want to be able to do this as a user.” We define these together. The result of the workshop is a list of individual tasks, which are then evaluated through calculation into a rating system. In the end, a budget framework to be commissioned is created.
    • Concept Including Proposal
      After the workshop, we will draft the concept including the proposal (monetary and time investment). Depending on your preference, we can provide a fixed-price offer.

      In doing so, we distance ourselves from 1) tempting cheap offers with expensive follow-up costs and 2) quick and generic one-size-fits-all proposals. Openness and transparency are important values for us. We aim to communicate honestly and on an equal footing with you, and we do not seek to earn money through “hidden” costs. Additionally, it is important to us that you receive a solution that fits your company precisely and that you know exactly what to expect within the project scope. In order to achieve a realistic offer for your ERP upgrade project, some time and effort from both sides are necessary.

      Subsequently, it is up to you to decide whether you want to proceed with the project with us. If you approve, we will commence the project together using our anaptis project methodology.

    FAQs about ERP Upgrade

    • How much does an ERP upgrade cost?

      The costs of an ERP upgrade are highly individual and vary from company to company because they depend on many factors (e.g., deployment method, requirements, number of users, current data quality, internal effort). For a cloud-based ERP solution, the subscription fee is crucial, which you pay monthly or annually per user. For a local installation/On-Premises version, one-time license costs (per user), an annual maintenance contract, as well as internal infrastructure and potentially personnel costs are incurred.

      In our blog article “Kauf von ERP-Software: Wie Sie Ihr Budget definieren” (German article), we discuss how you can roughly estimate the budget for an ERP project.

      Alternatively, there is the option to lease your ERP project with us, if desired. For example, you can work with our leasing partner MMV and pay off your investment amount through an attractive monthly rate.

    • Is it possible to get a fixed-price offer?

      The fact is: Nobody wants hidden costs. Upon request, we create a final fixed-price offer after having conducted a thorough analysis. How does that sound to you? This aspect is particularly appreciated by most interested companies.

    • How does an ERP upgrade work?

      There are different methods of ERP upgrades. Generally, a distinction is made between the waterfall model or an agile approach. We have developed our own agile methodology: First, we conduct the rough planning within 3-4 days (all necessary functionalities, project start, framework conditions).

      Next, we proceed with the implementation in 4-week iterative phases or sprints. In each phase, we plan the sprint, conceptualize the tasks and the budget, and execute them. At the end of each phase, the customer must test the implementations and assess the quality. Only then does the next implementation phase start. Uncompleted tasks are carried over to the next implementation phase. This process is repeated in each of the implementation phases.

      In the end, the implementations are compiled. We then train your team and let them thoroughly test the system before going live.

    • Will we have a designated contact person?

      Certainly. You will have a dedicated personal contact who will assist you in setting up our products and will be there for you in all matters afterwards. This is precisely what our customers benefit from compared to larger service-providing companies. After all, our project managers typically know their customers for many years and can often provide support or anticipate needs with an objective perspective – friendly and professionally.

      In addition to personalized support, the following reasons speak for us:

      • Close-to-standard and flexible approach
      • Fair usage rights to the code
      • Honest and fair statements
      • Experienced and reliable company
    • Does anaptis assist with change management?

      Certainly. For us, digital transformation encompasses technology, processes, and above all, people. Employees should therefore by no means be left out. On the one hand, we bring expertise in the field of change management, and on the other hand, we collaborate with the Münster-based startup Echometer. The company aims to make processes such as software implementations smoother by regularly soliciting feedback from employees. If you are interested, you can simply add this service.

    • Does anaptis assist with process optimization?

      Of course, we also advise you on process optimization. We do this automatically in every project, as we strive to transfer the optimal current state of business processes into the software.

      There have also been cases where we have only analyzed the processes of a company or department and highlighted improvement suggestions – without the software aspect. Naturally, it is then possible or advisable to proceed with the implementation together as well.
