What Are The 51 Extra Microsoft Dynamics GP Tools Now Available At No Cost?


    Email | Print

    When you are evaluating an ERP system sometimes there is just one little function that is crucial to your company, and if you knew the core system could do it, it would be on the shortlist.  If you have looked at Dynamics GP, look again.  As of March 2012 Microsoft now offers a free toolkit designed to help Microsoft Dynamics users consolidate and change critical data throughout their entire system, without rekeying data in multiple places. These tools used to add $750-$1500 each to the cost of Microsoft Dynamics GP but they are now all included free with Microsoft Dynamics GP as part of the Professional Services Tools Library (PSTL). These might just add the functionality your team has been waiting for and is another reason to choose Dynamics GP.

    The tools are listed below or read our CAL blog article for a full description of all PSTL tools.

    If you were to add all of these tools to your Dynamics GP system separately you would have paid $21,250 (although Microsoft offered a bundle price of $5,000, which of course is a better deal). But now they are all free!  However, keep in mind that you will likely still need to pay for installation and training for these tools.

    If you are a New England company interested in more information on how to buy Microsoft Dynamics GP  with these new Professional Services Library Tools (PSTL) please contact CAL Business Solutions [email protected] for more information and assistance. Or ask the partner you are working with about PSTL!

    And keep in mind that when you request an automated Microsoft Dynamics GP Quick Quote the pricing will include the Professional Services Tools Library. (But it does not include other Microsoft Dynamics GP discounts and promotions).

      Hello,
      With regards to the PSTL for Dynamics GP, there is apparently an option for the SOP to POP Line Re-Ordering Utility.
      I am on GP2013 and I have loaded the PSTL and I am able to see all the utilities except for the ADDITIONAL UTILITIES which is where the SOP to POP Line Re-Ordering Utility is appaently in.

      Any idea how I can go about accessing this utility?

      Regards,

      Jay
