One of the most notable features of the new release of Microsoft Dynamics GP is an improved version of the web client. The web client allows users to access some of the system’s capabilities on-the-go, and gives IT professionals the deployment option of providing users with a URL to log into the system. Below, we list the most significant improvements and how GP is now easier to use than ever before.

1. Integrated search functionality

Apart from finding the window or the report that you need, the integrated search functionality will bring up a list of all the open windows and reports that are relevant to your search term and criteria. With this feature, users no longer need to remember where a specific window is. By typing the window name into the search field, the web client will immediately hyperlink to it.

2. Support for a variety of web browsers and mobile devices

The web client, which was previously only accessible using Silverlight and Microsoft browsers, can now be run through iPad, android tablets, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Safari, since it uses the latest release of the universally accepted hypertext markup language – HTML 5.

3. Enhanced user experience

The user interface has been refreshed, with the banner now enabling users to log in and log out and indicate which company they’re logged into. The new web client also has the distinctive feel of Office 365 with the Office banner.

Contemplating the security of your company’s data or server backups may make you want to just keep your head in the clouds. When deciding between going hosted or on-premise for your ERP system, there is much to be considered. However, going hosted offers some crucial benefits that cannot be overlooked. Here are the top three reasons why switching to a hosted ERP system is worth the effort:

1. Security

Going hosted means that you no longer need to worry about the state and security of your data. Your hosting provider’s data center can ensure that data is consistently backed up. You can go about your day knowing that you’ll always have access to your data when you need it.

2. Technical Know-How

Securing your data in the cloud and having a hosting vendor means that you can leave all the technical terms to those who know them best. You no longer have to think of “customizations,” “compliance” or “rebooting” and instead, you can focus on the data at hand and performing your day-to-day tasks.

3. Adaptable

Hosted Dynamics GP caters to all businesses. Whether you’re working for a small company that’s just starting out, a mid-sized company looking to reach new heights, or a large company delivering services across multiple cities, hosted Dynamics GP scales and grows according to your business’ needs.

When organizing your business’ data and sorting through multiple categories and headings, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with the time-consuming process. Structured Query Language (SQL) used in Microsoft Dynamics GP serves to retrieve information from databases through the use of basic statements and clauses. Here are some SQL features that can help you sort through data quickly in Microsoft Dynamics GP:

  • Select clause – Allows you to pull and read data from the database. Often using the Select * format, this statement enables the user to select data from columns and tables such as a list of customers.
  • Where clause – Used to filter your list based on a certain condition, such as to specify a customer’s country or location.
  • Alias syntax – Enables the user to rename a database table or a column in a table. This function becomes especially useful when there are multiple tables in a query or when column names are long and not easily readable.
  • Join clause – Helps to combine and add more columns in your data. The join clause is often used to combine fields from two tables by using values that are common to each. 
  • Group by clause – Allows you to compress, consolidate and summarize data. This clause is used together with aggregate functions to group a result set into one or more columns.

WebSan Solutions, the largest Canadian Cloud Dynamics partner, offers users the ability to access Dynamics GP on a tablet. Customers now have an alternative way to access and create accounting transactions, without having to log in through their desktop computers.

“We see this as a natural extension of our Cloud Dynamics offerings. No other partner has made the commitment that WebSan has to provide this much flexibility to our customers,” says Andrew King, Managing Director of WebSan Solutions.

As long as there’s an active Internet connection, users would be able to use all of the capabilities of Dynamics GP, which also includes exporting SmartLists to Microsoft Excel with ease. WebSan’s Cloud Dynamics GP solution  allows users to quickly and securely access Dynamics on-the-go using Android, iOS and Windows devices.

An element that makes Dynamics GP on a tablet even more valuable is the feature that lets users print and email documents (i.e. Invoices) on the fly.

The ability to provide access to critical financial information to executives on devices other than a computer is important to a business. Get the insight you need to manage your business and improve the decision-making process by making it portable.
