Here’s why you should upgrade:

1. Greater Analytics Options

Better target audience specific data with access to just under 100 Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services reports. Start from scratch with templates ensuring user-friendly, intuitive reports. Create SQL Server views linking ISV, custom applications or Dynamics GP that are sophisticated, yet simple to build.

2. Faster Access to the Insight you Need

Using Role Centers, employees can personalize their KPIs and dashboards, and essentially work with the information most applicable to their roles. Users can easily move from the most specific information to a panoramic view of your organization’s records. Plus employees can quickly access company-wide insight and reports without a full user license, saving money and time.

3. Add Polish to Customer & Vendor-Facing Documents

The integration of Dynamics GP with Microsoft Word and Outlook reaches a new level in this latest upgrade. Using Word forms to create documents and Outlook to send individual and batch messages is even easier than before. Do more – from creating letters to distributing invoices – faster with a more polished result.

4. Drive Productivity with Personalized Info

By tailoring action panes and dashboards using lists with the exact details needed for their roles, whether that information is from within Dynamics GP or customized locations, your people get the power to filter out unneeded information. The ultimate result? It’s easier to do business.

5. Rich Integration With Excel

Using familiar Excel formats, users can transform sales strategies with shopping basket analysis, predictive modeling and other analytics. Create a brand new analysis fast using the Report Builder. Use as many data sources as you need to build from more than 200 Microsoft Excel® reports. And say goodbye to juggling applications: built-in data connectors mean Excel and Dynamics GP data are automatically connected.
