Microsoft Dynamics GP ConsultantsMicrosoft Dynamics GP, previously branded Great Plains, has a longer track record than virtually any other enterprise resource planning (ERP) platform written for Windows. Dynamics GP is a mature, feature-rich application and is one of the most popular ERP systems for SMBs, with around 50,000 active customers globally. Many businesses who have depended on Dynamics GP for years have been able to defer upgrades and maintenance to the point that they now find themselves running legacy software and rickety network infrastructure. This can be dangerous. At the same time, a common complaint we hear from new customers is that they have trouble finding veteran Dynamics GP experts who can provide in-depth knowledge about how to update their Dynamics GP ecosystem efficiently and derive the most benefit out of the application.

The more a business tries to limp along with legacy releases of Dynamics GP, the more challenging the migration procedure tends to be. If physical host servers or disk systems break down, there may be no suitable devices on the market to replace them. When releases of Windows Server that run Dynamics GP arrive at end-of-support (EOS) status, critical security patches are no longer developed. Current editions of Microsoft SQL Server might not be compatible with your special GP customizations. Innovative tools like Power BI may not be an option. Organizations considering an upgrade of their Dynamics GP environment are often intimidated by the volume of pieces there are to the project. And the price tag suggested for a migration may be astronomical.
