Upgrading Dynamics GP to Version 10

Written by

If you are currently running on Microsoft Dynamics GP Version 9 you may be fighting with the decision to upgrade to Version 10.  There are some great arguments to why you should upgrade to the newer system but those upgrades may not be worth your time and money expense.

The first thing users want to know is:  How does it look?  Current users won’t waste time becoming familiar with the layout because the Home Page & Toolbars are reminiscent of Version 9.  Differences will be noticed in the address bar, status bar & navigation buttons.

The newest version of GP makes it really easy for all users to locate windows using the navigation buttons.  The navigation buttons allow for faster & more direct access to different windows.  These come in handy when trying to find the location of an unknown window, allowing the user to look through the directory path instead of clicking through multiple screens.

The introduction of Action Panes further streamline business processes.  These allow users to preview & filter data without the need to open multiple windows.  For role specific tasks this feature will greatly speed up routine procedures.

Managers now have greater ability to review the outlook of the organization in greater detail.  With Microsoft Dynamics GP 10, budgeting has become more flexible & now allows the user to budget for multiple fiscal years, integrating budgets from various business units.

Overall, Version 10 has 120 new features to help your business run smoother.  To view the current version of Dynamics GP you are running, select Help > About on any of the user screens.  If you require assistance, WebSan has experience assisting clients with upgrades.  Contact us for more information.
