Last night I was roaming the aisles of my local grocery store when I found myself in the spice aisle.   As I was browsing the shelves, something caught my eye and prompted me to pick it up for closer inspection. As I looked it over, I discovered it contained 6 different spices which were the right amount for the recipe on the back. The packaging was complete with a picture of the finished dish. What a great idea! Whether you're a good cook or just starting out, there was a way to try a new recipe without committing to buying 6 jars of spices that you might not want to use again and at a much lower cost too. And what’s nice is if you like the recipe, you can add that beautiful recipe card and photo to your recipe box for the future.

Really, shopping for a new software solution is not that different.  You’re looking to change things up because your needs have outgrown your system or you're just tired and frustrated with it.   So you start looking around to see what’s out there. Most organizations have the basic needs for General ledger, Receivables, Payables but depending on your industry you may need to look for something with a different flavor, so to speak. You may have a need for Manufacturing, Distribution or Field Service needs. This is what I like about the Business Ready Licensing packaging of Microsoft Dynamics GP. The basic license includes the functionality that most organizations need and want.  Then if you have more specific functionality that you need, it is available as an additional purchase so you’re not stuck with payroll functionality if you never intend to process payroll in-house. However, if you do want to process payroll, you don’t have purchase another system that may or may not work well with your core financials.
