Frequently asked questions on upgrading to Monitor G5

Can our company upgrade?

Since we launched Monitor G5 in the fall of 2016, over 1,400 customers have upgraded from Monitor G4 to Monitor G5, which shows that no matter how much you use Monitor, an upgrade is possible.

How does an upgrade work?

Watch our recorded online presentation we held in 2023, in which we walked through the upgrade process from start to finish, delivered a short demo of G5 and answered some frequently asked questions:


How long does an upgrade usually take?

From your initial contact with Monitor until you can use Monitor G5 in live operation, around 4–6 months.

Based on the upgrades we’ve carried out over the years, it takes an average of 6 consulting days to upgrade to G5, spread over a 3-month period. This is of course highly individual for each customer, based on size and application.

How much does it cost to upgrade?

Upgrading to Monitor G5 costs nothing in terms of software, as it is included in the Update Agreement (Please note! This does not apply to G4 version Monitor Basic, read more below).

Costs added by Monitor during an upgrade are those relating to our consultants and project managers, as well as a small installation cost.

How do you upgrade to G5?

Start by registering your interest in upgrading to Monitor G5, and we will contact you for more information regarding your particular company.

We have adaptations in our Monitor ERP system, what will happen with these when we upgrade?

If you have adaptations in your Monitor G4 installation at present and need to bring them over to Monitor G5, they are not included in the upgrade, but will be re-offered by us.

Based on the upgrades we've carried out over the years, however, fully 80% of all adaptations disappear when upgrading to Monitor G5, since G5 is a more flexible system that offers excellent standard solutions.

We have more than one company, do they all have to upgrade at the same time?

No, they don’t necessarily have to upgrade at the same time. However, our recommendation is to upgrade all companies at the same time for the most seamless handling, and to avoid repeating the same process later on.

Will our staff need training for the upgrade?

Yes, in most cases a certain amount of training is required to upgrade to G5. Even though G4 and G5 are basically Monitor systems, there are some differences between the systems you need to educate yourself about.

Training is offered partly via a consultant, but also via our digital training platform for Monitor G5, which goes by the name Monitor Academy. You’ll gain access to this free of charge for up to 8 people during the upgrade project.

Our company uses Monitor Basic. Can we upgrade to Monitor G5?

Yes, anyone using Monitor Basic can upgrade to Monitor G5. However, there is no Basic variant of Monitor G5, which means you either have to upgrade to a full Monitor system, or alternatively, upgrade to an accounting variant called Monitor Accounting (primarily intended for holding/accounting companies). Some differences in cost may occur when upgrading to Monitor G5 from Monitor Basic, so please contact us for information on this.

How long will we be able to use Monitor G4?

We have been gradually phasing out Monitor G4 for a number of years and will continue to do so. For some time now we've substantially limited the development of G4; for example we haven’t released any new versions for a few years now.

In terms of development, in recent years we've only taken measures to meet legal and regulatory requirements, however, even this type of development will end on December 31, 2023.

In the fall of 2023, we also decided to cease all forms of training and consultation for Monitor G4. The reason for this is that all our educators and consultants are only trained in-house on Monitor G5, which means we can't provide the same guarantee of first-class training and consultancy for G4.

We’ll continue to provide Support for Monitor G4 as usual until December 31, 2025, whereupon this will cease. Taking all this into consideration, we recommend that you begin to upgrade to Monitor G5 as soon as possible.

Time to wave goodbye to G4!

All development of Monitor ERP is now focused on the latest generation, G5. This means support for the previous version will begin to be phased out in the coming years. 

But don’t worry. We’ll help you take the next step.

Upgrading to Monitor G5 is a way to future-proof your business. The wide range of improvements and new features will help you get more from your day-to-day work through greater efficiency, better workflows, and a clear, user-friendly interface.
