Does Dynamics GP Really Have Free Pricing Until 2015?


Email | Print

Here at Custom Information Services, we have been getting lots of questions about the current Microsoft Dynamics GP pricing and the SalesPad promotion that is running until December 27th, 2014. So, please let me try to explain these current promotions, and how they are working together,  in my best "matter of fact" tone .

“Yes” and “No” is the real answer here. “Yes”, you can get Microsoft Dynamics GP for free if you purchase at least 10 seats of SalesPad for GP. “No”, it does not go until 2015, as it is over December 27th, 2014; and there is a SalesPad purchase condition. First, let me start by explaining the applicable fall promotion from Microsoft Dynamics GP to shed some light on this topic.

This year’s fall promotion, “Give Me 5”, from Microsoft consists of the Dynamics GP Starter Pack (3 concurrent full user licenses) plus an additional 2 full users for a total of 5 concurrent full user licenses for $4,000. This is an incredible introductory price and is designed to give small businesses the ability to get into a NEW Microsoft Dynamics Solution by year’s end for the low price of $4,000. The following table illustrates this best (reference: CAL Business Solutions blog):

Dynamics GP “Give Me 5” Non-Promo: Current Promo:
3 User - Starter Pack $5,000 $4,000
2 Users - Additional $6,000 ($3,000 each) $0
5 User Total $11,000 $4,000 ($7,000 Savings!!)

This makes for a total savings of $7,000! To be eligible for this promo you must be a new licensee of Dynamics, and this price does not include the estimated $1,980 for the annual Business Ready Advantage Plan (annual maintenance fee).

SalesPad Free Dynamics

Now, this is where the fun begins! SalesPad is willing to make your “Give Me 5” FREE until December 27th, 2014 when you purchase 10 seats or more of SalesPad for Dynamics GP.

Here are the details:

  • Must be eligible for the Microsoft “Give Me 5” promotion
  • Any returns of SalesPad will be less the $4,000 GP price
  • Does not include the Dynamics GP Business Ready Advantage Plan
  • SalesPad seats must be purchased at the list price of $1,895
