Popular A La Carte Modules for Microsoft Dynamics GP


Email | Print

When you purchase Microsoft Dynamics GP you get a huge range of functionality/modules included with each user license.  The Business Essentials edition includes 22 modules and the Advanced Management edition includes 45 modules.  And many companies will never need more than that. But there are a few modules that need to be purchased “a la carte” for an additional cost.  Before you purchase the system you should know:  what are those modules and what functionality do they add?

To see a brief description of each Dynamics GP A la carte module read our full blog post: “15% off our Favorite Microsoft Dynamics GP A La Carte Modules: SmartList Builder, Extender, Payroll, HR and More”.

 But here are a few of our clients' favorite a la carte modules for Microsoft Dynamics GP:

SmartList Builder – Dynamics GP gives you a set number of SmartLists. (A SmartList is an easy flexible way to find and sort  information in the accounting system then use that info in Word or Excel). But SmartList Builder lets you create your own, across multiple databases. For example, create a SmartList to connect the vendor list and item list to show items purchased from specific vendors and all related details. Regular list price: $1,950. (Video: Using Smartlists to Find Data Fast)

Extender – This tool allows you to add additional user defined fields to Dynamics GP windows. This way you can track additional data related to that screen and those fields can be used in reporting and SmartList. Out of the box Dynamics GP gives very few user defined fields (2 on customer record, 0 on inventory master, 2 on vendor master etc…) and they are only text fields. With Extender you can add new fields in new formats, without being a developer. Regular List Price: $2,450.

Payroll – With easy automated tax filing for Dynamics GP, now is a great time to consider bringing payroll in house. Read our related post Cost Comparison of Using Microsoft Dynamics GP for Internal Payroll vs. ADP Outsourced Payroll Regular List Price: $3,000 for up to 100 employees.

Human Resources – this department is often overlooked but Dynamics GP has great tools to help you attract and retain top talent plus employee self service tools to make everyone’s life easier. Regular List Price: $3,000 for up to 100 employees.
