The history of Navision began back in 1983 in Copenhagen. The Danish software house PC&C was founded here and published the PCPLUS financial accounting solution in 1984.
1987 saw the first upgrade of PCPLUS toNavision 1.0. Unlike the previous version, the software could now be operated as a client server application via a LAN connection. The product was often referred to as the IBM Navigator or Navigator in Denmark as the software was distributed through the IBM Business Centre.
Navision 3.0, the successor to Navision 1.0, came onto the market in 1990. The AL (application language) was introduced with this version, which is based on the PASCAL development language. Now it was possible to make extensive modifications to the software. Navision 3.0 was unique back then. PC&C changed its name to Navision Software A/S two years later in 1992.
Navision A/S introduced the first ERP software called Navision Financials 1.0 to the market in 1995 in close cooperation with Microsoft. The Navision Attain 3.10 version was released in 2002. The cooperation with business customers was optimised in this version.
