Simplanova has been recently announced as the latest Microsoft ISV Development Center. Being ISV Development Center enables Simplanova and its ISVs joining the FY23 ISV Investment program.


Activate Microsoft funding for your migrations


Under this ISV Investment program, Simplanova can help you refine existing solutions or co-create new solutions from scratch. Our experts offer services for solution envisioning, architectural design, defining functional requirements, coding, testing, quality assurance, performance tuning, documentation development, deployment, user acceptance testing, building connectors, and more.

This program unlocks Microsoft credit for said Simplanova services under two FY23 programs – Activate or Accelerate – depending on where you are in our Business Central online journey.

Activate program is designed for ISVs and VARs on a journey to bring their solution to Business Central online and Microsoft AppSource and who will benefit from ISV Dev Center support to reduce time to market.

Accelerate program is designed for existing Business Central partners with proven Microsoft AppSource Apps which have an ambition to accelerate user acquisition with the help of an ISV Dev Center.


Any Dynamics Partner building add-ons – VAR with add-on or a pure ISV. The DevCenter credit can be used for:
  • building solution for Appsource;
  • upgrading add-on from Microsoft Dynamics NAV, AX, GP, and/or CRM;
  • migrating or implementing end-customers to BC SaaS with your add-on.

Activate – designed for Partners with existing add-ons on Dynamics NAV, GP, AX, or any other ERP, as long as the add-on is not yet on Appsource but can be beneficial for BC users.

You can use the DevCenter credit for a total of $20,000 to $35,000 if you meet two criteria:

  1. Your add-on will be migrated to Appsource;
  2. At least 100 BC users start using your add-on (migrated or new users).
    The credit can be spent on either Simplanova’s development services for add-on redesign or migration OR for Simplanova’s end-user migration services.


Accelerate – designed for Partners who already have an add-on on Appsource. You can use the DevCenter credit of $5,000 for each new or migrated 100 BC users, with a total budget per Partner of up to $172,500.

Minimum user quota: 400 BC users migrated or implemented.

The credit can be spent on Simplanova’s end-user migration to BC SaaS services or tools.

  • Your add-on has to be vertical, with the only exceptions of banking/payment management, e-commerce, and e-invoice add-ons.
  • Your add-on has to become a bestseller, meaning that you have to meet a certain new sales or migration quota under each program.

You have to nominate yourself until September 30th, 2022. Please schedule your consultations in advance! Once you are nominated, you will have 12 months to reach the program goals you participate in.

Schedule a consultation with Simplanova using the online form. Any candidate must be first vetted by Simplanova. If you meet the criteria, Simplanova will help you nominate yourself at Microsoft for the program and work together to reach the goals.
We will be your main contact point for the programs.
