Looking to Replace Microsoft Dynamics GP? Not So Fast!
As your business grows, the requirements for your Microsoft Dynamics GP solution, or any ERP system, will change and become more complex. The typical reflex is to replace the whole system. However, with a complete system replacement comes much frustration and challenges. The new system will be expensive and change can sometimes be disruptive. Sometimes the solution is right in front of you and you don't even know it . . .
Is it possible to build an eco-system around your current Microsoft Dynamics GP system that covers the new needs of your business? Yes.
Is it possible to extend the life and expand the functionality of your current Dynamics GP system with third-party add-ons? You bet.
Here are a few ways you can do more with your Microsoft Dynamics GP system:
Move GP to the Cloud
Putting your data into the cloud will ensure that people on your team are able to access data from anywhere. This will get rid of the current silos that don’t allow people from different departments to access data in order to build reports. Moving your GP data to the cloud via Microsoft Azure will streamline these processes and allow your employees to be more efficient.
Integrate GP With Third-Party Databases
There are add-ons that make integration and automation easier. These add-ons leverage web interface for an ERP system to ensure all data is validated before integration. They provide integration to all Extender fields as well as any third-party tools with custom nodes. All the data you have will be integrated to your ERP, this streamlining of your data will surely make your team more efficient.
Elevate Your Reporting to Make Better Decisions
The amount of data available after integrating an ERP solution may lead to you feeling overwhelmed. You have just been granted access to a lot of data. Luckily, with the new eco-system you’ve built, you’ll be able to see the thousands and thousands of data points in an intuitive way that tells a story in a number of comprehensive reports. These reports will allow you to make informed decisions on crucial parts of your business.
Do you have a manual budgeting process? Does your budgeting process take too much time away from paying attention to your current and potential clients? Worry no more. With your extended GP solution, you’ll be able to take all the data you own and automate your budgeting process. This will allow you to focus on what is most important, making sure that all of your customers are happy.
As your business grows, so too will the needs of your ERP solution. Instead of incurring the expense and frustration of a new migration by replacing your entire Dynamics GP system, why not skip the frustrations by expanding with third party add-ons?
