With the economic downturn, your organization is undoubtedly facing a limited availability of funds and increased competition for funding.  By implementing an ERP solution, like Microsoft Dynamics GP, you can secure, track, and report on that funding more efficiently and keep your efforts focused on serving your members and community.

Along with the economic downturn came the Recovery Act which promises stimulus money to organizations like yours!  Those funds can be used on both the software and the implementation services of a new ERP solution. 

Microsoft Dynamics GP has made the software solution decision even easier with a special offer just for Not-for-Profit organizations.  When you purchase the Foundation Pack of Microsoft Dynamics GP before December 23, 2009, you get two additional "full-access" users at no cost for a total of 3 system users.
