Last week I met with a new client, we began with our normal introductions, etc. They were curious as to my expertise with the Dynamics product line. After discussing the seven different certifications I personally have from Microsoft, the conversation quickly moved onto other topics. However, this reminded me of the rigorous screening process Microsoft employs for its partner network.
Any partner wishing to sell Microsoft Dynamics GP must have employees certified in its core financial management system. Further certifications are required in database management among others. Recently all Microsoft Partners were asked to complete formal training & certification in Sure Step, the Microsoft Project Management System. I am glad to say all WebSan staff that were tested passed with flying colours!
Congratulations Team WebSan!

These days, everyone is throwing around buzz words like “Software as a Service” or “Hosted” or “Cloud”, but how do I really go about calculating the total cost of the solution and whether to choose “the Cloud” or on-premise (traditional) solutions?
There are a number of cost figures to include :
1. License fee
2. License fee for upgrades
3. Maintenance costs
4. Ongoing support costs (professional services/consulting)
5. Hardware costs
6. IT Infrastructure costs (network, etc)
7. IT Personnel support costs (internal)
8. Implementation costs (external)
9. Implementation costs (internal)
Most organizations, when looking at SaaS vs. On-Premise only really look at items 1-5, but rarely dig deeper into the other categories of expenses.
It is in those last four areas where the large differences between SaaS and On-Premise come to light. If you own a small business with only 20 or so employees, then perhaps you don’t even have anyone internally who can perform system backups or upgrades regularly. If you run a large organization, perhaps supporting your IT infrastructure takes your focus off of more important things.
Some organizations may only run their head office on a DSL or Cable Internet connection; the type of solution that would never work for anyone accessing an Enterprise software application remotely from outside head office. The monthly cost of upgrading to a T1 or better connection may be prohibitive.
In addition to the costs listed above, the intangible costs of focusing on IT backups, upgrades, and infrastructure rather than spending money and resources on growing the business or satisfying customers can be even more taxing to an organization.
We offer solutions in Hosted Dynamics GP and On-Premise Dynamics GP. We can help your organization make the right decision and determine the best course of action, taking all costs and factors into account.

I encounter prospective Clients every day who ask me: why?
- Why do I need a new system?
- Why do I need to invest in new software?
- Why WebSan?
I cannot come up with "one-size-fits all" answer for everyone, but what I can tell you is the following:
- Companies that leverage Enterprise software to run their business see a significant improvement in their financial performance. This can manifest itself operationally in many ways, but typically it's a reduction in outstanding Receivables, growth in operating margin and lower overhead resources in the Finance and administration departments.
- According to a recent Aberdeen© report, best in class companies saw:
- 22% reduction in operating costs
- 20% reduction in administrative costs
- 17% reduction in inventory
- 19% improvement in complete and on-time delivery
Organizations are always looking to be more competitive and reduce costs. A solid investment in technology with the right Partner can make all the difference in the world.
