Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 ConsultingMicrosoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 business accounting software includes more than 120 enhancements including a service-based architecture that improves cloud-readiness and enables device independence, closer integration with Microsoft Azure Active Directory for single sign on capability, a new Invoicing module for the Web Client, the inclusion of Management Reporter within Dynamics GP navigation, nine new native Workflows, refreshable Excel Reports with SmartList Designer, and a variety of new features for employee self-service.

Migrating to Dynamics GP 2015 R2 from an earlier version of Dynamics GP or Great Plains can require significant system changes because Dynamics GP 2015 R2 no longer supports Windows XP or Vista clients, Windows Server 2003, Microsoft Office 2007, Microsoft SQL Server 2008, or Office Communicator 2007. For businesses moving to a cloud environment or a hybrid cloud/physical solution, issues such as network infrastructure, security and compliance, Office 365 integration, and disaster recovery may require special attention. Progent's team of Microsoft-certified and Cisco-certified consultants offer the depth and breadth of knowledge and experience to address the many technical and business issues associated with migrating to Dynamics GP 2015 R2 and can help you carry out an efficient migration to the latest version of Dynamics GP that will maximize the business value of your investment in this critical platform.

Key Enhancements in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2
The predecessor of Dynamics GP, Great Plains accounting software, predates the web and this seminal platform has tracked the evolution of small business computing through the emergence of the cloud and the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) model for end users. The headline innovation of Dynamics GP 2015 R2 is a new Service Based Architecture (SBA), which replaces SOAP protocol with REST-style integrations that allow Dynamics GP and third-party applications to expose and consume web services securely and efficiently.

SBA's stateless connection architecture eliminates disconnections caused by lost packets. SBA also allows single server deployment or scale-out deployment across multiple servers, and supports both single tenant or multitenant environments. Support for HTML 5 https protocol with the REST-based API makes it easier to build apps that run on different platforms including Windows, iOS and Android. In addition, SBA offers secure access by allowing Windows or Office 365 Identity to authenticate and by providing role-based security and end-to-end SSL encryption. Dynamics GP's Service Based Architecture also offers enhanced interoperability for integration with other platforms based on Microsoft's .NET Framework.

Dynamics GP 2015 R2 supports platform-independent applications for desktop and mobile devices

Additional system-level enhancements in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 include:

  • Identity Management for Web Client: Single sign-on through integration with Azure Active Directory allows users to work seamlessly with Dynamics GP, Office 365, and other cloud applications. You can log into Dynamics GP Web Client using your Azure AD account. (Learn about Progent's Microsoft Azure planning and cloud integration consulting services.)
  • Copy Home Page Settings: Setting up or editing Dynamics GP 2015 R2 users has been streamlined through the ability to copy extensive setup information from one user to another. The prior release of Dynamics GP allowed you to copy Security Access settings (roles, tasks, company access). In Dynamics GP 2015 R2, this has been expanded with the ability to copy Home Page Role, Home Page Content, and Area Pages. Copying and then editing setup information from existing users to new users with similar setting requirements saves considerable time and can also reduce errors associated with complex configurations.
  • Web Client Enhancements: Dynamics GP 2015 R2 includes two new Web Client Modules, Invoicing and Canadian Payroll. The most widely used Dynamics GP features are now available on Web Client, but to keep tool relatively light, some high-end Dynamics GP functions are not available via Web Client including Advanced Financial Analysis or Multidimensional Analysis.
  • Self Service User Type: Dynamics GP supports a Self Service user type designed and licensed at low cost for named (as opposed to concurrent) individual users with very light usage. Features newly available for Employee Self Service in Dynamics GP 2015 R2 include Employee Profile, Paystubs, W4, Benefits, Direct Deposit, Skills and Training, and Project Expense.
Dynamics GP 2015 R2 incorporates a long list of enhancements that improve the usability and productivity of various applications including Financials, Distribution, HR, Payroll, Field Service, and Project Management. Notable application enhancements introduced in Dynamics GP 2015 R2 include:
  • Nine New Native Workflows: Dynamics GP 2015 R2 adds nine new Workflows for Financial, Purchasing, Sales and Payroll. These include GL Batch Approval, Payables Batch Approval, Vendor Approval, Receivables Batch Approval, Employee Skills Approval, Direct Deposit Approval, Employee Profile Approval, W4 Approval, and Expense Report Approval.
  • SmartList Designer Refreshable Excel Reports: Dynamics GP 2015 R2 includes the ability to take SmartList Designer reports based on SQL Views and publish them to Refreshable Excel Reports, which will stay current with changes in Dynamics GP data.
  • Navigation Integration for Management Reporter: You can access a new navigation list for Management Reporter from the Administration and Financial navigation buttons. This offers authorized users the convenience of viewing, editing, and creating Management Reporter actions from within Dynamics GP.
  • Cross-platform Apps: Business Analyzer Release 7 allows users of tablets and smart phones powered by Windows, iOS, or Android to view and take action on Dynamics GP business information. Business Analyzer R7 supports Management Reporter (MR) content as well as SSRS and Excel Reports functionality. Authorized users may add any Management Reporter report to the app start page and view the report in the MR HTML viewer. The Time Management app, which is available for tablets powered by Windows, iOS or Android, allows Dynamics GP employees to enter vacation and sick time in Payroll or time off against Benefits Timecodes within Human Resources. Business Analyzer R7 and the Time Management app are available in Windows store, iTunes store, and Google Play.
  • Mask SSN on Payroll and HR Reports: Administrators can now optionally replace Social Security Numbers on specified Dynamics GP reports with a XXX-XX-XXXX mask without having to use Report Writer to make custom changes.

    The Dynamics GP Time Management is available for Windows 8, iOS iPads, and Android tablets

  • Purchasing All-in-One Document View: This new window provides a convenient, central location for viewing all transactions for a specific vendor or for viewing Purchasing documents associated with a specific Purchasing transaction such as Purchase Orders, Shipments, Invoices, Payments, Returns, and Credit Documents. This feature includes a new window for searching and filtering.
  • GL Combine Inquiry: In General Ledger, the Detail Inquiry window has been combined with the Historical Detail Inquiry window so that open as well as historical years can now be displayed in the Year drop down field.
