Microsoft Dynamics GP ExpertsDynamics GP, previously branded Great Plains, sports a longer track record than virtually any other enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution written for the Windows OS. Dynamics GP is a proven, feature-rich application and is one of the most popular ERP platforms for SMBs, with around 50,000 active installations globally. Many businesses who have depended on Dynamics GP for years have managed to postpone upgrades to the point that they now find themselves running seriously out-of-date software and rickety network infrastructure. This can be risky. Meanwhile, a recurring complaint we hear from prospective clients is that they have a hard time locating veteran Dynamics GP consultants who can provide in-depth knowledge about how to upgrade their Dynamics GP system efficiently and get the most business value from the software.

The more an organization attempts to limp along with outdated versions of Dynamics GP, the more challenging the upgrade procedure tends to be. If physical host servers or storage systems fail, there could be no suitable hardware on the market to use as substitutes. When releases of Microsoft Windows Server used to host Dynamics GP reach end-of-support status, vital security updates are no longer developed. Current releases of Microsoft SQL Server might not work with your special GP customizations. Innovative products such as Power BI may not be an option. Businesses considering an upgrade of their Microsoft Dynamics GP environment are often intimidated by the volume of pieces involved in the puzzle. And the price tag quoted for an upgrade may seem through the roof.
