These two solutions seem very similar at a glance, especially when compared feature for feature, which often raises the question what exactly is the difference between Dynamics AX and NAV. In this two-part post we will look at five areas that set these two ERP solutions apart.

Costs

One of the key areas to pay attention to when looking at the difference between these two ERP solutions is cost.

Global presence

Both solutions support multiple languages and currencies, and can transact across borders. Dynamics NAV does an excellent job of handling decentralised global operations; however, Dynamics AX works better for managing end to end global processes.  Dynamics NAV is a very popular, effective ERP solution for growing international businesses that don’t have such a complicated organisational structure while complex enterprise solutions who need visibility across multiple decentralised locations in different countries is best suited to Dynamics AX.
