We have a customer in Rocky Hill, Connecticut in the financial services industry that processes 100,000 payables transactions a month - that is over 1 million a year! And all your finance people out there will know that one million AP checks actually generates two million AP transactions PLUS two to four million General Ledger transactions.And it is no problem for their Microsoft Dynamics GP accounting system to keep up with the volume!
When researching financial management systems, transaction processing speed and system scalability are important criteria. You need to know your new system will be able to easily handle existing transaction loads, and manage significant increases as your business grows.
Last year Microsoft published this report: Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 Benchmark Performance White Paper: 1,000 Concurrent Users with Microsoft SQL Server 2005. This white paper documents testing for running Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 with 1,000 constant concurrent users, all engaged in heavy transaction processing . It reports on a sample customer environment processing more than 2.6 million business transactions (with a total of 8.3 million transaction line items) within an 8-hour workday. It also shows results of testing of a year-end payroll run for 30,000 employees, with Microsoft Dynamics GP completing a full year-end payroll processing and reporting scenario in 11.2 hours. Whew!
