Dynamics365 Business Central or Tenerife or NAV for SaaS

Project Tenerife Named…

Microsoft has announced that NAV for SaaS, previously known as Project Tenerife (or its other really long name which I won’t waste time entering here ;0), will be called Dynamics365 Business Central.

Two Flavours

It will be available in “Essential” and “Premium” versions.

Essential will cover:

  • Financials including Sales, Purchase & Nominal Ledgers, Workflows & Audit Trails, Cash Management, Currencies, Budgeting, Deferrals, Bank Reconciliations, Dimensions and Fixed Assets.
  • Contact Relationships managing Contacts, Campaigns & Opportunities with built-in Integration to D365 for Sales.
  • Supply Chain for Sales & Purchase Order Processing, Warehousing & Stock, Multiple Locations and Stock Transfers.
  • Human Resources covering Employees and their Expenses.
  • Projects/Jobs including resources, estimates and time sheet entry.
  • Other functions included are Multiple Languages, Reason Codes, Extended Text, Intrastat Reporting, Scheduled Tasks, and Outlook Integration.

Premium adds functionality to cover:

  • Service Management which addresses Service Contracts & Items, Pricing, Planning & Despatching.
  • Manufacturing will deliver Production Orders, Planning, Finite Loading, Machine Centres with Capacity Planning and Version Management.


At this date (16th March 2018), we have no firm pricing but we can look to current suggested US pricing for a guide.

  • Team Member (read/approve; run reports, employee self-serv) is priced at $8 per user per month
  • Essentials is priced at $70 per user per month
  • Premium is $100 per user per month

Existing users of NAV or GP on a current support agreement should expect some financial encouragement to transition (40% has been moted but subject to confirmation).


Dynamics365 Business Central will be available generally in the North America and Western Europe from 2nd April, 2018.
