Microsoft GP 2010 – Why Upgrade?

Why Upgrade to Dynamics GP 2010

There are three basic reasons to upgrade your ERP solution, no matter what software you are running:

  • To take advantage of new functionality and product enhancements
  • To remain on a supported version of your software in order to receive updates and assistance when needed
  • To maintain your investment in your mission-critical business applications

However, if you use Microsoft Dynamics GP®, there are 10 more reasons to upgrade to GP 2010 R2:

1. Deliver faster access to personalized insight with tailored role centers that include personalized dashboards and KPIs, with drill-back capabilities that let people move from a high-level view down to a specific source record.

2. Get more out of Excel with richer integration, more than 220 pre-built, refreshable Excel reports that can include multiple data sources, and the ability to quickly create an analysis from scratch using Report Builder.

3. Give your people new options for analyzing information with over 90 built-in Microsoft SQL Server®Reporting Services reports.

4. Take customer- and vendor-related activities to new levels of efficiency and professionalism with deeper integration with Microsoft Office Word and Outlook.

5. Help ensure that “driving personal productivity” is truly a personalized experience by empowering people to tailor their dashboards and action panes with lists that give them the precise information they need for their roles and lines of business.

6. Create “mini-applications” that simplify tracking and tasks for line-of-business information without writing new code.

7. Make Unified Communications part of your new way to do business by giving employees the power to work effectively with customers and vendors through instant messaging, have ad-hoc conversations, hold a Microsoft Office Live Meeting, share views of customer and vendor information, and even create and deliver sales quotes, sales orders, and purchase orders—all within Microsoft Office Communicator.

8. Connect applications and systems efficiently and cost-effectively by giving developers over 350 Web services to choose from and use a simplified architecture to integrate with a world of applications and data sources.

9. Get the most from other Microsoft technology innovations, like out of the box workflows with Microsoft SharePoint® Foundation that enable people to use SharePoint to update Microsoft Dynamics information that displays on external lists—and updates automatically appear in the system.

10. By leveraging a range of tools that support your upgrade—from auto-deployments to rapid migrations, working with a skilled, certified Microsoft Dynamics GP partner can help you get up and running quickly.
