Visit Website View Our Posts

The launch of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013, an enterprise resource planning  (ERP) solution, is just around the corner. The Encore team has just returned from the first of many Dynamics GP 2013 Roadshows and we are really looking forward to this upcoming release!

The day started off with the Director of Product Management, Errol Schoenfish, sharing a recent product demo with us.  Dynamics GP 2013 was shown across hardware – desktop, tablet, and phone – and across platforms – full client and web client – ubiquitously delivering KPIs, data, and user productivity.

While information regarding new features on Dynamics GP 2013 was mentioned (which you can see previews of via Feature of the Day on the Dynamics GP blog) there were three big ideas that those thinking about replacing their current ERP system should take into consideration with this major release.

  1. Web Client – With the release of Dynamics GP 2013, you will now have the ability to access your information through a secure web portal making your data available to you and your employees wherever they are, from their PC or mobile device.
  2. Simplicity and Agility – Microsoft continues to evolve Dynamics GP to work as easily as possible meaning fewer clicks to complete a task, drill down dashboards helping you better understand how your business is performing, and more information at your fingertips.  These features provide you with the ability to make changes quickly and easily. You can learn more by reading the Statement of Direction and the Preview Fact Sheet.
  3. Microsoft Technology – More than ever before, this release of Dynamics GP 2013 is tightly integrated with other technologies your business uses, like Microsoft Office, Microsoft SQL Server, and Microsoft Lync.  Not only does this make your organization and employees more effective but helps lower the total cost of ownership of these investments.

The other big announcement yesterday was the simplification of pricing for Dynamics GP called Napkin Pricing.

The Starter Pack, which gives you three users with Financial and Supply Chain modules, costs $5,000.  Additional Full users cost $3,000 while Limited Users only cost $600.  Need more functionality? You can add the Extended Pack for $10,000.

As we get closer to the launch of Dynamics GP 2013 (expected by the end of 2012), more details will become available. Watch this space!
