Microsoft Dynamics GP ConsultantsMicrosoft Dynamics GP, originally branded Great Plains, has one of the longest heritages of any ERP solution made for Windows. Dynamics GP is a mature, feature-rich application and is one of the most popular ERP platforms, with around 50,000 worldwide active installations. Many businesses who have depended on Dynamics GP for years have managed to defer upgrades and maintenance to the point that they are running seriously outdated software and infrastructure. This is risky. Another common theme we hear from new customers is that they just couldn't find good experienced GP consultants to partner with for guidance on how to get the most out of the application.

The longer an organization tries to limp along with legacy versions of Dynamics GP, the more complex the upgrade process becomes. When physical host servers or storage systems break down, there may be no equivalent hardware available to replace them. When versions of Windows Server used to host Dynamics GP reach end-of-support (EOS) status, critical security updates are no longer released. Current editions of SQL Server may not work with legacy customizations. Innovative tools like Power BI may not be compatible. Businesses investigating an upgrade of their Dynamics GP deployment are often overwhelmed by the number of pieces there are to the puzzle. And the price tag quoted for the migration may be through the roof.

Dynamics GP Migration and Enhancement Services Available from Progent
Progent has supported Dynamics GP and Great Plains for over two decades, and Progent's seasoned professionals have provided advanced and affordable online integration consulting for Windows-based networks to businesses in every state in the U.S. By combining in-depth experience with all releases of Dynamics GP along with top-tier network integration skills, Progent is uniquely suited to help you get the most out of GP.

We partner with our clients and start by listening to their needs. After gaining an understanding of the environment and the areas for improvement we make our recommendations. Recommendations may include an upgrade to a more current and supported version of GP, simple user training, full system and individual module implementation including 3rd party modules from a wide range of vendors that have written add-ons to GP, custom integrations with other key business applications within your organization, custom report writing, and system evaluations to determine if GP is being used to its fullest. Our goal with each GP project big or small is to maximize business value and minimize cost.

Additional Dynamics GP Consulting Services Offered by Progent
Progent offers the expertise of seasoned consultants who have been working with Dynamics GP and Great Plains since version 1. Progent can do the work you need directly instead of managing less experienced consultants or in-house staff. Key areas where Progent can deliver Dynamics GP consulting services include:

    Build custom integrations between Dynamics GP and other business applications to reduce duplicate entry and improve accuracy.

  • Customizations
    Create big and small customizations that work with GP to address specific business functions that are not addressed by standard GP modules or third-party modules.
