Email | Print

The Microsoft Dynamics GP promotions department is at it again… this time around we can now offer FIVE user licenses for $3,000 (USD). This promotion is available in other countries too. Contact your reseller for more information by country and pricing for your company. The Dynamics GP Business Essentials Suite or Advanced Management Suite may be purchased under this new promotion. I am amazed by this pricing. Resellers like Custom Information Services (CIS) do not know what the upcoming promotions will entail until published by Microsoft. We had very minor promotions last quarter for new customers and now it looks like a huge win for any prospect looking for a great ERP software package.

This offer is hard to pass up! Reach out to your local Dynamics ERP partner to take advantage of this exceptional pricing.
