New Zealand’s most experienced Dynamics NAV and Business Central team

Delivering IT Solutions since 1992

Our Company

After migrating to New Zealand from Germany in the early 1990’s, Hartmut Otting joined with local Brent Clark to establish Topaz, a business providing IT specialists for large scale IT projects.

However, there’s only a limited number of large-scale projects active in New Zealand at any given time, so demand for these services can be very spasmodic.  So, they began looking for a more sustainable business model based around a product that could generate recurring revenue.

Coincidentally, on the back of their project management skills, Topaz became involved in the first implementation in New Zealand in 2001 of an ERP product from a small Danish company called Navision at Statistics New Zealand.

As a result, Topaz decide to specialise in selling, implementing and supporting Navision and related products, using its project management skills to ensure projects ran to time and budget.

When Microsoft bought Navision and re-branded it as Dynamics NAV, while other Navision partners diversified into other Microsoft products such as Office and CRM, Topaz remained focused on NAV.

In 2017, Microsoft redeveloped Dynamics NAV as a public cloud ERP and renamed it Dynamics Business Central. Released in New Zealand in 2018, Business Central is rapidly becoming the ERP of choice for a growing number of New Zealand organisations, ranging in size from five users to five hundred plus.

The success of Navision, Dynamics NAV and Dynamics Business Central means Topaz has grown steadily and now has offices in Auckland and Wellington, and as a consequence of remaining focused on a single ERP now has one of the largest and most experienced Dynamics Business Central teams in New Zealand.

Our People

With consulting teams in Auckland and Wellington, Topaz is noted for its depth of experience, not only are the founding principals still active in the business well into the company’s third decade, but all members of the management and consulting team have at least two decades of general IT and ERP experience.

With low staff turnover and having focused on Dynamics NAV and Business Central since 2001, the company has arguably the largest and most experienced Dynamics NAV and Business central team in New Zealand.

As a result Topaz are the recognised Dynamics NAV and Business Central specialists and as such have  taken over support and corrected installations and where customers have been unhappy with the results obtained from the original vendor.
