Find Resources to Make the Best Decisions for Your Business

Microsoft Dynamics GP

Dynamics GP is an affordable, on-premise business management solution for small and mid-sized organizations that delivers out-of-the-box management performance.

What Is Microsoft Dynamics GP?

Microsoft Dynamics GP (formerly Great Plains) software delivers comprehensive out-of-the-box business management functionality, from operations management and financial management to human resource management and manufacturing. It connects parts of your organization, giving you better visibility into and control over what۪s going on in your business.

Cloud vs. On-Premise: Microsoft Commitment to Dynamics GP

One of the distinctive features of Dynamics GP is that it is hosted on-premise rather than in the cloud. As Microsoft has shifted focus to the development and maintenance of cloud-based products, the company encouraged GP users to consider a transition to a cloud-based alternative product such as Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central or Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations.

New Microsoft Policy Gives GP Users Options

July 2021, Microsoft pledged to continue to provide support and upgrades for Dynamics GP through 2028 (and possibly beyond.) Microsoft Dynamics GP now falls under Microsoft’s Modern Policy. The Modern Policy offers continuous support and servicing, including bug fixes, new features, and the latest tax updates. Customers may stay current by applying at least one of the three yearly planned Dynamics GP releases. Older releases continue to follow the existing Lifecycle timelines under the Fixed Policy. Commitment to Dynamics GP

While migrating to a new ERP system is feasible for some companies, fans of GP seek alternatives to extend the life of their GP investment. Like Microsoft, plans to continue support for GP. The software is an ideal solution for many small and medium-sized businesses. We avoid pushing customers into a migration before they are well-prepared to make that change.

If it’s Not Broken, Don’t Fix It.

As a partner and extension of your team, we encourage each company to decide what path is best for their unique situation. If you are happy with GP and would like support, we can help. If you are looking to enhance the usage of GP thru training, reporting, ISVs, hosting, or more, we can help. If you are interested in moving to the cloud with Business Central or Finance and Operations, we can help.
