Arctic IT has been an implementer and supporter of Microsoft Dynamics GP since its inception. GP is a solid financial management solution that’s very popular due to its advanced out-of-the-box functionality and ease of configurability. That being said, we want to share more about the future of Dynamics.
It’s no surprise that Microsoft has added only small enhancements to GP in recent years. The company has been progressively shifting the focus to other Dynamics products. Emphasis is now on the further development of the more modern and flexible ERP applications of Dynamics 365 – accessible anywhere, any time, on any device. In fact, Microsoft’s internal GP team is shrinking to make room for growth in the Dynamics 365 platform.
Watch our webinar on The Dynamics GP Roadmap to gain deeper insights into the options available to you today from Microsoft Dynamics.
Dynamics GP remains a solid and very functional application that will be supported in the coming years. According to Microsoft’s lifecycle support forum, Dynamics GP 2016 is slated for mainstream support through 7/13/2021 while Dynamics GP 2018 will be supported through 1/10/2023. Arctic IT, however, will only be providing GP support to our current client base through 3/31/2022.
In consideration of the future of GP, here’s a few options you will want to review before considering any upgrades to your existing accounting software:
Dynamics 365 BC is the small to mid-sized offering, while Dynamics 365 Finance is designed for global enterprise level finance and operations – allowing you to optimize workflow by integrating the disparate systems in your organization. Manage your budget, finances, and operations and monitor progress with real-time data across all departments.
The functionality is fully featured with the power of consolidation across entire enterprises. Task prioritization and intelligent automation are a couple of the must-see advanced features.
