CAI is committed to supporting our refining clients and their NAV for Refining software version. As we continue to keep pace with Microsoft-driven enhancements to the core Dynamics NAV environment, we recognize the unique nature of many of our customers’ businesses and that the new software may not necessarily be warranted. CAI never mandates that our customers upgrade their NAV for Refining software and being on the most current version of the NAV for Refining software is never a prerequisite to receiving high-quality, professional support services.
