Dynamics GP ExpertsDynamics GP, originally called Great Plains, sports a longer track record than almost any other ERP solution made for Windows. Microsoft Dynamics GP is a proven, feature-rich application and is one of the most widely used ERP systems for small and mid-size businesses, with about 50,000 active customers worldwide. Many organizations who have relied on Dynamics GP for years have been able to postpone upgrades long enough that they are now using legacy software and rickety IT infrastructure. This can be risky. At the same time, a recurring complaint we hear from prospective clients is that they have a hard time finding veteran Dynamics GP consultants to partner with for in-depth knowledge about how to update their Dynamics GP system efficiently and get the maximum business value from the software.

The more a business tries to make do with legacy releases of Dynamics GP, the more challenging the migration process becomes. When server hardware or disk systems break down, there could be no suitable devices available to replace them. When versions of Windows Server used to host Dynamics GP reach end-of-support status, vital security updates are no longer distributed. The latest editions of SQL Server may not be compatible with your important GP customizations. Innovative tools such as Power BI may not run. Businesses investigating an upgrade of their Dynamics GP deployment are often intimidated by the volume of pieces there are to the puzzle. And the price tag quoted for a migration may be through the roof.
