Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Extended Pack Module Descriptions


Email | Print

In my last post, Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Starter Pack Module Descriptions, you learned which modules every user of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 will receive for free. The price of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 starter pack is $5,000 for 3 users. This is a required purchase. Each additional user is $3,000 for a full user or $600 for a limited (read only) user. Many of the more advanced modules that were formerly included in the Advanced Management version of Microsoft Dynamics GP are now included in the starter pack for all users. So all users are getting richer functionality in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013. Read our blog: Dynamics GP 2013 Modules Every CAL Customer Will Receive Free for more info on that benefit.

But there are still some additional, more advanced modules, which not everyone needs. These are included in the Extended Pack. This is an additional one time purchase of $10,000. This one time fee covers all the users of your system, now and in the future. So in this case, you do not pay per user.

This is a description, to the best of our knowledge, of the modules included in the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Extended Pack. (Note: these are in addition to all the modules you get with the required Starter Pack, of course).

    Already own GP – would like to know about Sales configurator; is this an additional product for purchase? Do you know who offers Demos with this product?
