We often hear the question from prospects and others, “How many companies use Microsoft Dynamics NAV or Microsoft Dynamics AX?”
Well, Microsoft has just released its 2015 worldwide breakdown at their Convergence Conference that Clients First is attending.
Here are the numbers:
|Microsoft Dynamics® AX||20,000 companies|
|Microsoft Dynamics® GP||47,000 companies|
|Microsoft Dynamics® NAV||110,000 companies|
|Microsoft Dynamics® SL||13,500 companies|
|Microsoft Dynamics® CRM||40,000 companies|
Just with Dynamics NAV alone, over 8,000 companies purchased a new system in the last year as there were only 102,000 last year.
Dynamics AX may have fewer companies using it but they tend to be larger with more user licenses per site.
Dynamics GP and SL are US only solutions and for all intents and purposes, SL is dead as it has shown zero new customers in the last 3 years. GP, according to Microsoft also shows 0 new customers in the last year. Obviously there have been new companies buying it but they likely were offset by those abandoning it. Remember, if you own a solution like GP or SL, and are on maintenance, you can get full credit toward a solution like NAV or AX.
It’s our understanding these statistics make Dynamics NAV the most installed and used mid-market ERP system in the world by a decent margin and AX a leader in the upper mid-market as well.
