Finding Experienced New Hires In 2010 – The Microsoft Dynamics GP Advantage


Email | Print

One thing firms should consider, but often don’t when choosing new accounting or ERP software, is how easy it will be to hire staff with experience in the applications under consideration, or how simple it will be to train new employees in the software .  

 Here is where selecting Microsoft Dynamics GP offers a big advantage.  Most people don’t realize that the award-winning accounting and ERP solution is actually utilized as class curriculum in more than 100 university and college courses designed around a computerized accounting practice set from Armond Dalton Publishers Inc.  Titled “Computerized Accounting Using Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 4th Edition,”  This educational Dynamics GP set includes Instructions and Assignments, References, Instructor’s Guide and Solutions Book and a full operational version of Microsoft Dynamics GP software. 

Accounting Professors who authored the books, needed an expert Microsoft Dynamics GP partner to provide technical support for professors teaching the course.  After an extensive search of potential partners and a recommendation from Microsoft, Accounting Professors chose The TM Group of Michigan, as their national technical support partner.

 Besides university and college courses, many well established and experienced Microsoft Dynamics GP partners offer training classes to the public to train new hires or for refresher courses for existing users.  Implementing software can be similar to seeing a really good movie.  When you watch it for the second or third time, you start picking up the subtleties of the plot and additional story lines you missed during the first viewing.  It is hard while undertaking a new accounting or ERP implementation for users to learn all the shortcuts and finer points of an application.  Upon the first showing, they are just trying to figure out how to get their jobs done.  Training classes a month or so after the system’s go-live date can really help users learn to make their systems sing.

 Besides offering classes to our clients, The TM Group is also the Michigan training partner for Microsoft Dynamics GP, Dynamics SL, Microsoft FRx and Microsoft Dynamics CRM through a strategic partnership with New Horizons Computer Learning Centers - Great Lakes. 

 “New Horizons is very pleased to partner with The TM Group in the delivery of Microsoft Dynamics training,” says Scott Pettit, Marketing and Partner Manager at New Horizons. “Their success in the Microsoft Dynamics training and consulting market is definitely an asset to us.  New Horizons of Michigan looks forward to working with The TM Group to expand our offerings to include Microsoft Dynamics which allows us to better meet the training needs of our clients.” 

 So besides being used by hundreds of thousands of people worldwide offering many potential hires with experience in the application, Microsoft Dynamics GP is also taught in universities and colleges and by many certified partners offering public training classes.  Finding experienced Dynamics GP hires should be much easier than finding people with backgrounds in the less prevalent accounting and ERP packages.
