A Fast-evolving Business Solution
Dynamics GP 2010 is the successor of Dynamics GP version 10.0 and included a massive array of enhancements over previous versions of Dynamics GP and Great Plains business accounting software. Dynamics GP 2010 was itself quickly followed by Dynamics GP 2013. Dynamics GP 2010 incorporated twice as many features as QuickBooks Enterprise, seven times more standard reports, and, thanks to its integration with Microsoft SQL Server 2008, significantly more performance and expandability. Examples of features available in Dynamics GP but not in corresponding releases of QuickBooks are allocation calculations, landed cost tracking, formula-based demand forecasts, partial pay invoice for partial receipt, LIFO and FIFO inventory, application of sales tax rates by item, lot and serial number tracking, automatic calculation of late fees, and multiple ship to on a single order. Dynamics GP 2013 added over 150 new features including a powerful Web Client, enhanced Workflow support, and tighter cloud integration. Progent's certified consultants can help you maintain your Dynamics GP 10.0, Dynamics GP 2010 or Dynamics GP 2013 environment or assist you to plan and carry out a smooth Dynamics GP 2015 R2 migration.
