    Calculating the cost of Microsoft Dynamics GP is much easier than it has been in the past. In a nutshell the cost of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 software licenses are:

     Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Price List

    • Starter Pack (3 Users) = $5,000
    • Additional Full User = $3,000
    • Additional Limited (Read Only) User = $600


    • Extended Pack = $10,000
    • Customization Pack = $6,000
    • SmartList Builder Pack = $2,000
    • Extended HR and Payroll = $7,000
    • Collections Management = $3,500 

    Although this pricing is simplified, there have been many questions about it during the transition period. Over the past several months I have written several blog articles outlining what ERP software buyers (and current Dynamics GP customers) need to know about the new Perpetual Licensing price model. Here are 13 of those posts for quick reference.
