How to Get More from Your Microsoft Dynamics GP

For decades Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains) has been the go-to ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) solution for small and midsize businesses of all sorts. Dynamics GP manages accounting, inventory management, human resources, and a variety of other processes. The solution can help organizations succeed by improving cash flow, increasing margins, fixing current and preventing future problems. The smart tools in Dynamics GP enable owners to be proactive with their finances.

Dynamics GP is a robust solution with many valuable modules and tools. But it’s surprising that many owners use only a fraction of what the system has to offer. If you are a Microsoft Dynamics GP user, our Dexpro team can help you get more out of your ERP.

Enhance your Dynamics GP experience

We begin by an in-depth review of your current system. We look for ways that Microsoft Great Plains Support can optimize your processes for increased efficiency.

Dynamics GP upgrades

Microsoft is continually developing new and exciting features and releases to improve its Dynamics GP offering. These are available at no cost as part of the Business Ready Enhancement Maintenance Plan. You may not look forward to updates if your system is running well. But not updating risks security issues and potential data loss. Loss of data inevitably leads to a loss in productivity, cost savings, and overall value to your business.

When you maintain your system up to date, transition to a new version is much smoother and more cost-effective. Upgrades also keep your business compliant with federal and state tax laws and provide updated forms. To avoid workflow interruptions, our Dexpro team ensures that upgrades are fast, reliable, and seamless. We specialize in procedures that some vendors consider complex. These include upgrades from older versions, system integrations and customizations, adaptation of third-party modules and financial reporting software, and SQL server upgrades.

Business process improvement

Our first-class Microsoft Dynamics Great Plains support improves your business in ways other than upgrades. We’ll look for ways to replace your time-consuming manual processes for optimal efficiency. We will help you better utilize existing modules included in the Microsoft Dynamics GP package. With over 50 modules available, you may be surprised at the possibilities!

You’ll also benefit from the professional services tools library, available for free to all Microsoft Dynamics GP customers. Having this tool library installed and readily available is a best practice we strongly believe in, and we encourage our clients to make full use of it by showing them the best tools for their needs.


Another component of our Microsoft Great Plains support is ongoing training by some of the best instructors in the industry. This includes guided tutorials, demonstrations, one-on-one sessions to address your specific business needs, troubleshooting, phone consultations, and full access to our online resources. We strive to provide you with everything you need to feel confident that you are getting the most out of your ERP solution.
