Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

A large company where users have one function- for instance, where someone only receives or works in payables. That minimizes the number of windows they need. A smaller company where one user does multiple functions will require a lot more training and user knowledge to navigate, and it makes it harder to secure users. You also have to understand that GP started life as Great Plains, designed for accountants. The other modules were added on after Microsoft bought Great Plains, which means that modules like Manufacturing are red-headed step children with much smaller support ecosystems. So, if you're starting fresh, you may want to look at something built for the mobile world. D365 and Business Central are a lot more money, buggy, and hard to customize and essentially still vaporware. Microsoft is heavily investing there, leading to the previously mentioned question about the future of GP. If I was starting today I would be hard pressed to justify jumping into GP in a world where Salesforce ties in with so many programs. GP has MRP but it is limited so it's hard to justify a manufacturer starting with GP today.

Microsoft GP has done a great job helping us organize our finances and create useful reports for other departments to understand their budgets. On the other hand, GP can feel a little dated and doesn't use as many features as we would like.

Cons:
  • UI is not intuitive. New users usually need extended training to understand and use Dynamics GP. The interface is very old unlike other software in the Microsoft Dynamics ecosystem. Also, the navigation is not that user-friendly.
  • It is very limited with services such as rental management. We are unable to track rental inventory and create rental contracts.

I really liked the modern, clean interface that Dynamics GP has. I would recommend GP to any business that needs to produce comprehensive financial statements that can be easily distributed. I also recommend being selective when choosing a consulting firm to assist you with supporting Dynamics GP. The firm we selected had some employees who were very knowledgeable, and others who weren't as helpful, and it made all the difference in understanding how to use the software. One thing I did really like was that if I had a question I usually could find a YouTube video with someone walking through any process step by step.

This is a great tool if your department is spread out or has people that travel a lot for work. It's great, especially for when you have signing approvers that travel a lot for work. Also good for departments that split invoices and are spread around campus or your company.

It is well suited for bigger organizations that need to strive for collaboration between employees and stay organized. Sales development teams can easily organize campaigns and input any updates to each lead or account. It is less appropriate if you are looking for an aesthetically designed product that is intuitive. This definitely needs to be improved.

Microsoft Dynamics GP is great for small to medium size companies with basic to moderate needs for AP, AR, financials and overall inventory controls. If you have a medium to large company with more advanced needs and more technological integrations such as bar-coding system or payroll, Dynamics GP may not be the right tool for you, as it may be a little lacking on those areas.

The solution is probably not the best choice for smaller companies. I would imagine that smaller companies would be better suited with a less robust tool like QuickBooks. The costs associated with licensing for both MS Dynamics GP AND MS SQL Server may "weed out" most smaller companies before they make the mistake of engaging with a tool that is over-kill. As previously noted, this tool is not the best for any entity that is searching for a cloud-based solution. Finally, a company will want to make sure that most users are familiar with basic accounting functions. The tool offers no "hand holding" if you don't understand a process (hand holding: think of the way TurboTax walks users through their processes).

MS Dynamics GP is a solid tool for any company (equipped with experienced accountants) looking for an on-premise solution.

The license cost per user is not the cheapest on the market today. In your contract you'll know what percentage you will pay of the total cost of your licenses for the support from Microsoft annually, but you'll get good support. You get a great ERP for your company and the support is fairly good. The main benefit of the system is that you have all the departments in your company connected in real time.

Dynamics GP is well suited to medium sized companies where a flexible accounting solution is required, with lots of flexibility and customization. However it can be used very effectively out of the box with no customization. There is a very robust user community and very capable support vendors. It would be less suited to very small organizations without a dedicated IT infrastructure team who can maintain servers and related infrastructure. It also would probably not work well for very large enterprises who need an enterprise-level ERP.

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.

It is the right accounting system for our small to mid-sized company and can handle all of the functions and integrations with other systems that I require to do my job efficiently. There is a large GP User Group for support, ideas, training, etc. that help users get the most out of the product.

As an accounting software, GP does a decent job. I personally do not use the accounting functions (strictly working with the manufacturing and supply chain side of things). I think there are other programs where ERP is better suited than GP. If you know the ins and outs of how to use GP, you can get a lot accomplished, however there is a very large learning curve and it is not an intuitive system at all.

If you are looking for an easy to use, and very user-friendly program, Microsoft Dynamics GP would be a good fit. Data fields can be customized to fit your needs and it can easily be utilized throughout your organization. It's not glitchy, and very rarely has any crash issues.
