Likelihood to Recommend

Microsoft Dynamics GP

The product has enough modules and third-party add-ons that you can pretty much fit it to fit any use case. However, having used cloud-based Xero accounting for another task, I have come to appreciate the functionality and convenience of a well-executed cloud solution. My understanding is that GP's cloud solution is to have your instance hosted by someone else, which strikes me as a bit pointless.

Pros

  • Generate smart lists for tracking expenses & sales
  • User controlled accounting transactions - it does what you tell it to do
Dixon Pettengill profile photo

Cons

  • We found the sales order entry process to be cumbersome and requires too many steps to get the invoice posted and the documents for customer generated. We process many sales orders in a day and need a system that allows for quick entry and processing. This system did not meet that need.
  • We have a fairly simple manufacturing process. The manufacturing module seemed to be geared to more technical and in depth processes and we were not able to find a way to fit it to our needs. We wanted a system that would allow the accounting to be as straightforward and basic as our manufacturing process is.

Alternatives Considered

We used industry specific software and found that the vendors weren't doing a good job updating and improving the software We moved to Great Plains many years ago and have been very pleased with the decision.

Return on Investment

  • One of my clients was able to increase the number of orders processed by 44% without adding another employee.
  • Another client was able to increase order accuracy to 98.5%. Also created an online SQL report for salespeople that saved 3 days of work monthly and over 500 pieces of paper per month.
  • I have been able to help users feel more confident and get more done in less time after training and doing an audit of current practices. This has saved hundreds of clients thousands and thousands of hours.
