More Microsoft Dynamics NAV Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Business One is reasonable considering the functionality.""In terms of price, it's fair, but the problem is with AMC.""Its price is reasonable. People are able to spend that much.""Its licensing model is good. There is a one-off payment for the software license, and after that, you only need to pay the annual maintenance fee.
