Microsoft Dynamics® GP Gets an Overdue Update

Email | Print

Microsoft recently launched Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010, the first update in three years to its enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for midsized businesses. Microsoft Dynamics GP is the descendant of the old Great Plains accounting software Microsoft acquired a decade ago, and has since been enhanced as an ERP platform.

 Enhancements to Microsoft Dynamics GP include:

  • Business intelligence (BI) reporting tools customized for different departments, so for example, a purchasing agent might get metrics or business indicators tailored to their job function, helping them spot trends before it becomes a problem.
  •  Integration with Microsoft Office Unified Communications, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, and a number of Web services and reporting services
  •  More than 400 built-in Microsoft SQL Server reporting services and Microsoft Excel reports
  •  Enhanced interoperability with Microsoft SharePoint and new tools for examining data, such as PowerPivot for Excel 2010.

“By combining the power of business applications and productivity applications, we’re able to support how people really work in their everyday jobs,” Crispin Read, general manager of Microsoft Dynamics ERP, said in a statement. “Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 is an excellent choice for companies experiencing growing pains with their current accounting software and looking for a solution that can scale.”

In addition to the integration with Office and other packaged software products, Microsoft gives a discount for Microsoft Dynamics GP users who subscribe to Microsoft Dynamics CRM, the on-demand software. So a company can use Microsoft Dynamics GP for their ERP needs and Microsoft Dynamics CRM for sales and marketing.
