Growth and Mergers

In 2000, Navision Software A/S, and its primary Danish competitor, Damgaard A/S, merged. Product development and new releases continued for the primary products of both original firms (Navision and Axapta). In 2002, the now much larger Navision Software, with all its products (Navision, Axapta, and the smaller, older C5, and XAL) was purchased by Microsoft, becoming part of the Microsoft Business Systems division along with the previously purchased Great Plains Software business, and its several product lines. The Navision and Great Plains products all received a common rebranding as the Dynamics product line. Navision was renamed Dynamics NAV.
