The latest statistics are out relative to the overall install base, unit and percentage growth of all four Microsoft Dynamics ERP and CRM products.
- Microsoft Dynamics AX
- Microsoft Dynamics GP
- Microsoft Dynamics NAV
- Microsoft Dynamics SL
- Microsoft Dynamics CRM
The conclusion is hands down Microsoft Dynamics NAV is the install base leader. It’s the most installed mid-market ERP solution in the world. CRM often has many more users per company so although it only has 40,000 companies on it, that equates to 3 million users. To compare, NAV has just over a million users with over 100,000 companies.
Dynamics AX has been growing steadily. The average size and complexity of company using it and average cost of the projects makes AX a much bigger player in terms of overall revenue to Microsoft and the industry than the unit counts would indicate. For example, many of the new Dynamics GP sales this year were because of heavy promotions selling 3 and 5 user GP systems. AX rarely get’s installed in companies using less than 20 users.
Clearly Dynamics SL is not a growth product for Microsoft although it does fit the niche of project accounting companies well.
