Be Prepared: Upgrade Now to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010

Visit Website View Our Posts

Everyone looks forward to year-end close, right? It’s the most wonderful time of the year!  Maybe not, but planning ahead can make it run more smoothly.  If your organization uses Microsoft Dynamics GP 9.0, you may want to consider upgrading to GP 2010 now so that you can take advantage of helpful new features for year-end close.

After January 11, 2011, Microsoft will no longer support earlier versions of Dynamics GP.  Though OmniVue will continue providing support to our clients on earlier versions, there are always risks associated with running software that is not supported by Microsoft.   After January 11, it will take longer to get back up and running after a system disruption if you’re not on the current version – which would be a complete nightmare if you’re knee-deep in year-end close.   It will also be easier and faster to make changes to your current setup if you are running the most recent version.  Without support from Microsoft, your system will miss out on security updates and regular improvements in functionality.

By planning ahead and scheduling your GP 2010 upgrade now, your business will have access to new features that will be helpful during year-end close – and beyond.  Enhanced business intelligence and dashboards provide greater visibility into your organization’s data and make it easier for employees to analyze and share information.  Plus, personalized business processes drive productivity while increasing efficiency and professionalism across your team.  GP 2010 also integrates tightly with your other Microsoft technologies, including CRM, SharePoint and Excel, which helps maximize your ERP software investment. 

Don’t get stuck in the perfect storm of year-end close combined with an unsupported version of Dynamics GP.  Make plans to upgrade now – before year end close – and manage to a better 2011!
