28 Oct Dynamics NAV 2013 Functionality and Capabilities
Microsoft introduced a new licensing model with the release of Dynamics NAV 2013. The new licensing is intended to simplify things and rearrange some of the functionality to provide more value.
The rest of this post is lifted from a Microsoft document that explains things pretty well. Perpetual Licensing refers to the standard user license for Dynamics NAV 2013. It does not include subscription licensing or SPLA licensing. Though subscription and SPLA licenses contain similar functionality and capabilities, they are issued on a named user basis; not concurrent.
“Perpetual Licensing for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 is designed to help small and midsize businesses jumpstart their financial insights and distribution management and then easily extend into all functional areas. Perpetual Licensing provides a step forward by simplifying how you purchase an ERP solution. The entire solution can be licensed via four core components: The Starter Pack, the Extended Pack, the Full User and the Limited User. Additional configuration components are also available. Access to the Dynamics ERP solution functionality is licensed through user licenses on a concurrent user basis.”
