Take Advantage of ‘Crazy Good’ Price Changes for Microsoft Dynamics GP before October 1, 2012!

Email | Print

The pricing changes for Microsoft Dynamics GP mean that not everyone has to be an accountant to figure out what the cost would be, or what modules a customer of Microsoft will own.  Now maybe that’s not an issue for you, but let me share some WONDERFUL facts for both NEW and EXISTING customers of Microsoft Dynamics GP.

First, check out the list of modules customers receive within the New Microsoft Dynamics GP “Perpetual Pricing” model for the “Starter Pack” or an “Extended Pack”.

Now for the list of fantastic opportunities:

  1. New Customers: Purchase a one user Business Essentials license for Microsoft Dynamics GP prior to October 1st, 2012 and receive the full “Starter Pack”, including 3 user licenses and full module benefits on Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013.  That is a savings of almost $6,000 and up to tens of thousands of dollars with the other savings below!
  2. New and Existing Customers: Purchase Integration Manager now (retail $5,000).  Get the full Integration Suite once GP2013 is implemented (will be $10,000).
  3. New and Existing Customers: A company contemplating adding Payroll and Human Resources could WAIT to purchase the modules until transitioning and get unlimited employees for both within the new “Starter Pack”!  However, if Advanced Payroll or HR might be needed in the future, then I suggest purchasing Payroll for 100 employees now ($3,000) and Advanced Payroll at $3,000 since adding Advanced Payroll/HR will be $7,000 after 10/1/2012.
  4. New and Existing Customers: If you envision purchasing Smartlist Builder soon, buy it NOW to save $50. Currently the module is $1950, after 10/1/2012 it will be $2,000.
  5. New and Existing Customers: If after updating to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013, your company might need Returns Management or Project Accounting, the least expensive way to get those modules would be to add “Available to Promise” (for $2,000) now (if you own Inventory) so your transition mapping will include the “Extended Pack”.
  6. New and Existing Customers: Lastly, the FANTASTIC NEWS that customers will get UNLIMITED Management Reporter Designers and Viewers with the Starter Pack!  So, no need to purchase additional Management Reporter licenses to plan for the upgrade to GP2013 and future implementation of Management Reporter!  I know many of my clients who share their reports with many employees will LOVE this one!

If you want to move forward with some of these actions, contact Collins Computing, Inc. today or call your existing Microsoft Dynamics GP partner immediately!  You don’t want to be left WISHING you’d made these decisions earlier!

*These tips are based on Microsoft Published documents, Microsoft blogs like this on Perpetual Pricing Tips, and direct conversations with Microsoft regarding expected pricing terms.

    Hi. Just a quick note to let you know that I truly appreciated this post. I have been looking for this kind of information. Keep up the good work!


  3. Abra – we found out from Microsoft that the October 1, 2012 deadline does NOT affect existing customers. They can still buy on the old price lists anytime before they upgrade to Dynamics 2013.


  4. Yes, they did extend the promotion for existing customers until they upgrade – that’s great!
