Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Dynamics GP

GP is being used across the whole organization, and it is the main ERP for the organization. This is a holding company composed by 6 manufacturing companies, which each of those are being managed in GP. The main products are row materials so one of the challenge was to integrate GP with the PLC and the batching systems. GP was the only ERP that allowed this kind of integration. The integration is in real time, and eliminated a lot of manual process in order to create invoices and manage receivables. In addition to that this company is located in Puerto Rico where payroll is a little different than US, specially in the calculation of vacation and sick Hours, with GP we were able to custom the GP vacation and sick window entry to manage the special needs for Puerto Rico's payroll. Other challenge was to manage requisitions from the remote sites, this process was out of control and using Business Portal, we were able to automated the purchasing process and have a better control on all the items that were requested from remote sites.

GP has been so flexible to adapt to the company requirements, even though we do not have experience in Dexterity where able to create new functionalities just using extender.
  • Adaptability to new functionalites, easy to customize
  • Easy to Integrate with other Third party software and a lot of third party software in teh market that integrates with GP
  • Easy deployment for future upgrades
  • Increase real-time data sharing and integrate business processes in any organtization
  • Great reporting Tools , you can build reports from scratch and customize templates for specific individuals or groups to deliver information across the entire organization
  • Improve the Vacation and Sick accruals calculation, basically we would like to have different options or schedule to setup the vacation and sick hours.
  • Increased productivity eliminating all the manual process when we have to bring all the sales transactions from the remote sites and create invoices per customer, in addition improved the Accounts receivable turnover
  • Using GP throught Citrix Access has improved the upgrade process for future versions, reduced the upgrade processing time and the deployment process for each user.
  • GP is simple to learn and use, even with new versions.
When we selected Microsoft Dynamics GP we were using ACCPAC dos version. We compared the Windows version against GP, and what GP brought to the table was the easy way to integrate with the PLC manufacturing and the batching systems. In addition the third party software for sales in the remote sites had a real time integration with GP. Those were the keys to select GP.
I would ask :
How will GP help to generate more revenue?
What is the Scalability for GP ?
What are the benefits we should see with GP ?

Using Microsoft Dynamics GP

Due the economic challenges that Puerto Rico is having, the company has had to merge some companies in order to be more efficient. It has been easy in GP to process those merges, even thought we had to spend days to accomplish that the process was smooth and accurate. In addition we were able to streamline the purchasing and sales process and the organization is confident to keep renewing GP for the future versions.

Microsoft Dynamics GP Implementation

Basically the challenge with this implementation was the Business Portal, too many errors and even the aplication is up and running the users are still having issues. We will start planning the migraton to GP 2015 soon.
