Integration Framework for Microsoft Dynamics GP and Microsoft Dynamics CRM


Email | Print

‘Focus on integration rather than major ERP package enhancements’ is #9 on the list of ERP Software predictions for 2010. Given corporate aversion to risk, companies are less likely to bet on entirely new products or risky upgrades.  As a result, vendors are more likely to invest in incremental product enhancements and tighter integration between modules rather than revolutionary changes to their software.

With this in mind, Microsoft recently announced a new built-in integration framework for Microsoft Dynamics® GP and Microsoft Dynamics CRM, enabling customers to connect the two systems to help provide business insight and improve user productivity across financials, supply chain, and sales and service. The integration is supported with both on-premises and cloud versions of Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 and Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0.

Microsoft Dynamics GP can also help in integration and enhancing your business systems by allowing you to:

  • Free your people to focus on what matters most by automating routine tasks such as timesheets, expense reporting, sales orders, and more.
  • Make business information, reports, and documents readily available on intranet or extranet sites for more-productive collaboration among employees, customers, and trading partners.
  • Take advantage of Web-based requisition management capabilities, where employees can submit requisitions online, automatically routing them through an approval process across your organization.
  • Enable mobility and remote access by bringing relevant information to the hands of your people through portal-based access. Enhance collaboration with Microsoft Dynamics GP and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server together to implement workflows, advanced searches, and collaborative business intelligence.
