Navision has been in the international enterprise software market since 1985.  There are over 133,000 companies using Navision worldwide.  Microsoft purchased Navision in July, 2002.


Companies choose Navision based on independent reviews of Navision as well as recommendations from current users.  Navision is one of the highest-rated systems overall for small, mid-size, and large companies.

Extensive training and testing is required by Microsoft Navision of its Partner Network.  Navision requires Solutions Centers to attend Microsoft Navision Training Academy and pass rigorous tests.  Most other accounting systems have few or non-existent standards for solutions providers.
Navision can be scaled from a simple General Ledger, Receivables, Payables, Order Entry, Job Cost and Inventory system to a full Enterprise System encompassing many more business functions.
We have implemented, supported, and trained companies and institutions with the Navision system for over seven years.
We do a comprehensive business process analysis for each prospect before going forward.
Anderson Essentials has a 100% implementation success rate (on-time, on-budget, all desired functionality intact) in over 7 years of installing Navision software.  The industry average for completely successful business software installations is about 16%.
Anderson Essentials offers a FIXED PRICE services agreement.  Very few software providers will offer this guarantee.  We honor the price we quote from the very beginning; if we underestimate the hours necessary to implement the Microsoft Navision system, we do not charge for any additional hours required to get your company “live” on the system.  Many software implementers routinely add unexpected extra costs and hours to their final bill.
