Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2 Takes Business Insight to a New Level


Email | Print

Building off of the momentum of the hugely successful launch of Dynamics GP 2010, Microsoft is already taking the next step to outpace their competition with the business insights enhancements made to GP 2010 R2, coming in the spring of 2011. 

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2 will leverage more context-aware computing to automatically deliver relevant information to the actions a user is taking or the information they are viewing.  According to Gartner researchers, context-aware computing will be a top strategic technology for organizations in 2011, and they estimate that over half of all Fortune 500 companies will have major technology initiatives around this functionality by 2013.  GP 2010 R2 is on the leading edge of this technology in the ERP marketplace by leveraging its role-tailored dashboards to provide contextual BI right to the individual user who needs it. 

Other ways that Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2 is setting itself apart from the competition include:

  • More out-of-the-box reporting capabilities – GP 2010 R2 features over 400 Excel and SRS Reports and 600 Report Writer Reports
  • Flexible user licensing options when it comes to BI – While most other ERP solutions on the market require a full user license in order to access dashboard functionality, Microsoft offers business intelligence capabilities in both the light user and full user licenses
  • Access information and collaborate more easily with Microsoft Lync – GP 2010 R2 extends connectivity with Microsoft Lync which can bring information about a person and their organization to your fingertips while you are instant messaging with them.  Users can also initiate ERP processes from Microsoft Lync, such as creating sales orders, purchase orders or sales invoices.  

More detailed information about the additional features and benefits of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2 will be available in early March 2011.
