What technologies does DVP work with? What does Nav-to-Net™ use?
DVP develops solutions based on various Microsoft stack technology, including ASP .NET, SQL, MSMQ, IIS, NAS Server, NAV web services, and others. DVP uses these technologies in Nav-to-Net™ to create a cohesive and comprehensive e-Commerce solution managed in NAV, exclusively for NAV.
Do you sell Microsoft Dynamics NAV (Navision)?
We do not sell NAV. Instead, we work with several of the best NAV shops worldwide. See our partners here. We work alongside our NAV partners without ever taking over customer accounts.
Can I work with DVP directly instead of a NAV partner?
Of course! If you already have Microsoft Dynamics NAV, it’s not necessary to go to a NAV partner. Working with DVP directly allows you to cut out the middle man if that’s your preference.
What kind of customers do you work with?
We work with all kinds of customers, as long as they have Microsoft Dynamics NAV! We have almost 20 years of experience working with B2B, B2C, and B2E companies in a variety of industries. Check out our customer showcase and industry pages for more insight.
What versions of NAV do you currently support?
We currently support version NAV 2009 R2 and up. NTN 7 supports NAV 2009 R2 and up. NTN 8 supports NAV 2013 and up, including NAV 2017.
What kind of customer service do you offer?
We support our customers from the very beginning of a project to post-live services. This includes scoping, diagnostics, design mock ups, training, implementation, QA testing, data migration, staging, and go-live support. We also have support and maintenance packages available for our customers. Any time after you go live, you can come back to us for additional training and change requests.
How long does it typically take to deploy a solution?
Technically, an out-of-the-box Nav-to-Net™ deployment can be done in a matter of days. Realistically, we expect as little as 4 weeks for a base installation. Customizations and other factors unique to the business affect the time it takes for deployment.
What does a typical work cycle look like?
Once you decide to go with Nav-to-Net™, a typical work cycle goes like this: diagnostic call, scoping and fit/gap analysis, functional graphic design documents delivered, project starts, lab environment created, development starts, staging, user training, data porting, user acceptance training, deployment to production, go live, and any support after the project is delivered.
How much is Nav-to-Net™?
Given the Nav-to-Net™ feature set, it is priced very competitively. There are several license options to fit most needs and budgets.
How much can I do (updates, developmental changes) without DVP?
A lot! It is a misconception that you cannot do anything without DVP. Nav-to-Net™ is designed to be developer-friendly and implementer-friendly. We have several implementation partners worldwide that can help you as well. Nav-to-Net™ is a multi-tiered software solution which includes UI, data, and customization tiers that can be tailored by qualified developers (we provide the necessary training). A developer license for Nav-to-Net™ is now available.
Do I get access to the source code?
Our customers can obtain the source code for the UI, data, and customization tiers of Nav-to-Net™ after participating in appropriate training. Digital Vantage Point’s core intellectual property is written into a base tier which is never shared. However, all base features can be overridden in the customization tiers. A developer license to access customization code tiers is now available.
