Microsoft Dynamics GP ConsultingMicrosoft Dynamics GP, formerly called Great Plains, is one of the original Windows-based business accounting and ERP solutions and over the course of 20 years has evolved into a full-featured platform for financials, web commerce, sales automation, distribution, supply chain and project management, manufacturing, HR, and business analytics. The latest releases of Dynamics GP include major improvements over earlier editions. These enhancements represent a major step up in features, flexibility, cloud readiness, cross-platform support, and performance.

Dynamics GP has double the number of features as QuickBooks Enterprise, seven times more pre-built reports, plus higher performance and greater scalability. Some of the capabilities included with Microsoft Dynamics GP but not available in QuickBooks include calculating allocations, tracking landed costs, support for LIFO and FIFO inventory, item-by-item application of sales tax rates, lot and serial number tracking, late fee calculation, and multiple ship-to from a single order. Progent's seasoned Dynamics GP experts can assist you to assess the benefits of the latest release of Dynamics GP for your environment and can help you migrate from an earlier version of Dynamics GP, from QuickBooks, or from other accounting platforms.

Dynamics GP's runtime engine was put together using the Dexterity programming language, which was developed using Visual Studio. Integration with Microsoft's .NET Framework gives Dynamics GP a familiar Windows user interface and allows software developers to utilize powerful .NET and VBA technologies. The data platform for Dynamics GP is SQL Server, which offers enterprise-class performance, security, transaction integrity, and scalability. With the Dynamics GP 2015 R2 release, Dynamics GP adopted a Service Based Architecture (SBA) offering a REST-based API instead of the previously supported SOAP protocol. For browser-based applications supported by Dynamic GP's Web Client, the Service Based Architecture offers more durable connectivity, full-cycle SSL encryption, seamless scale out, secure multi-tenancy, and support for HTML 5 https protocol to allow developers to build apps for Windows, iOS and Android handheld devices.
