Has Navision’s decision surprised you?[QQ] I think it was inevitable the decision would be made – and we have thought so ever since the merger took place.

Why has the company waited several months before making this decision? It is possible the delay in the move was political and may have been part of attempts to keep shareholders and Damgaard happy.

Is it the right decision? There is no doubt the Navision brand was stronger than Damgaard and the joining of the names may have been confusing for the market.

What benefits will be seen following the announcement? The merger may have been unsettling for the end-users. What this allows the company to do is consolidate its portfolio and present a clear message to the channel now. It is a good time to carry out the move as the mood in the mid-market is becoming buoyant following a quiet 2000.
