Testimonials From Former QuickBooks Users Who Have Moved Up To Microsoft Dynamics GP

Microsoft calls the move from QuickBooks to Dynamics GP “A smart move for your growing business.”   And they back that up with several testimonials from former users of QuickBooks who have chosen Dynamics GP as a more cohesive and comprehensive business management solution.

Here’s what they say:

“QuickBooks has basic accounting functions, but what Microsoft Dynamics GP offers is the ability to stay on one product for the entire lifecycle of the company.  It grows with your business.  If you’re going to stay a small mom-and-pop operation, something like QuickBooks might work well, but if you intend to grow the business, the last thing you want is to have to convert to another accounting package later on.”

“As soon as we installed QuickBooks, we knew it was not the right solution – it was inexpensive, and it enabled simple reporting – but to support the sophisticated project management and accounting required by our business, we knew we would need to turn to Microsoft Dynamics GP.”

Kenneth Boothe, Jr., Program Manager

“Running a growing, multi-departmental organization in QuickBooks became unmanageable.  Each time we added a line of business, we had to create a new QuickBooks instance.  It made recording intercompany transactions and bank reconciliations extremely difficult.  One of the strengths of Microsoft Dynamics GP 10 is that it allows us to maintain separate ledgers for each of these business units.”

“QuickBooks is an excellent financial solution for a small company.  But, as our company grew in size and volume, we had to create multiple QuickBooks files to maintain operations – and none of these files could be linked together.  This left us unable of practicing traditional accounting procedures, and it complicated any type of reporting, whether managerial or financial.”

Scott Nesbitt, Chief Accounting Officer

“A huge difference between QuickBooks and Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 is transactional integrity.  We have seven people in our accounting department, plus a Director of Finance.  We need the ability to go back and follow an audit trail for any transaction, so a system that has transactional integrity is critical.”

Lee Horton, Director of IT
Current LP

A great deal more information about the benefits of moving up to Microsoft dynamics GP is contained in the
 Replacing QuickBooks Brochure and the QuickBooks to Dynamics Movers Guide.  You can also read about the
Rapid Implementation Tools that have been developed for migrating from QuickBooks to GP.  In addition, there’s a QuickBooks Replacer Kit available in hard copy.  I have 10 left that I’d be happy to send out on a first come, first served basis.
