Quit Trying to Catch the Profit Train, Hop on Board and Ride it with Dynamics GP 2010!

Email | Print

It’s time to ride the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 profit train.  In an economic environment where we are all trying to cut back on spending excess money at home, why should it be any different when it comes to your business?  So often we hear of companies that are closing their doors or cutting back, simply because they were unable to keep up on the growing needs within their companies.  On the flip side of that, employee turnover has been high because of the undue pressures put on employees to pick up the slack.  So the question is:  How can you quit trying to play catch up and actually start looking forward and plan ahead?  The most recent release of Microsoft Dynamics GP extends the reach of insight, productivity, and collaboration across your entire business, helping to ensure that people are your most powerful asset.  Microsoft Dynamics 2010 assists in keeping your employees happy and productive within a system that allows you to stay ahead of your company’s growing needs.

The top 10 reasons to upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 are:

1)      Get Better Insight Into Your Data Using Dashboards and KPI’s With Drill-Back.  There are now customizable dashboards built of SQL Reporting Services (SRS) reports.  Each user can decide which ones they want to display, create their own, and drill-back to GP from these reports.

2)      Get More Out Of Excel With Predictive Modeling And Analysis.  Tools integrating to Excel include the Excel Reports, which in GP 2010 include additional functionality, including Power Pivot tables and drill-back from Excel Reports to GP.

3)      Work With Over 90 Built-In SRS Reports.  An additional 20 SRS reports have been added that can be used in SharePoint, Outlook or within the dashboards.

4)      Create Professional External Documents Using Word Forms.  Users will be very excited to be able to deliver Word Forms and customize external (customer and vendor facing) documents within Word.

5)      Tailor Your List Pages With Navigation List Builder.  Those list pages that were previously underutilized will be customizable with the new SmartList Builder tool – Navigation List Builder in GP 2010.

6)      Create Mini-Applications With Extender. Building on the Extender functionality added in GP 10, SP 4 users can create their own free standing Extender windows, report on them with SmartList, and integrate to them with SmartConnect.

7)      Connect More Easily With People Using Communicator Integration.  Detecting the presence of customer and vendors contacts will allow you to work faster and more directly.  You can send instant messages and share your desktop and email documents right from your desktop using these tools that are integrated into GP2010.

8)      Integrate Systems Better With Web Services.  More web services are available in the Human Resources Self Services Suite in Business Portal as well as other tools on SharePoint.

9)      Leverage Other Technologies Such As 64 Bit And Workflow On Windows SharePoint Foundation.  Management Reporter (FRx replacement) will take advantage of 64 Bit technology and the workflows will be able to be run on SharePoint Foundation.

10)   Upgrades Are Much Easier.  Beta customers experience very few problems, especially in comparison to previous GP editions.

By implementing Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 you will not only have the opportunity to stay ahead of your company’s growing needs, but also the potential to exceed your growth expectations.
