Rising Gas Prices and Microsoft Dynamics GP

Written by

For those who drive, we’re all experiencing the same phenomenon of a lighter wallet. Reading and listening to news reports of rising gas prices has everyone in a cringe. Spending more money than what we’re use to isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, especially not mine. This poses a question for alternatives. There are lists of possibilities but one does seem like an effective solution, Public Transit. Why? It’s affordable and it’s just as efficient by getting me to work. I know you’re asking how does this relate to Microsoft Dynamics GP. Think about it this way. Your company is spending more money on antiquated systems that can’t keep up with  business or on multiple disparate systems which both have the effects similar to ‘spending more than you should’. You need a solution and that’s where Microsoft Dynamics GP comes in. Think of it as your company’s ‘Public Transit’ that can help your business do more with less. It incorporates all functions such as HR, Accounting, Sales and more, which adds to productivity. It’s a familiar interface, and gives you the power of choice in deployment, purchase and use.

Here’s a list of why you should chose Microsoft Dynamics GP for your company:

-         Affordability: One system that does it all

-         Great Fit: Easily integrates into your existing systems

We are currently advertising for a PHP developer, but we're interested in meeting talented people willing to join our team.

The foundations of ERP are found in manufacturing resource planning, traditionally used by companies which produced tangible goods in factories. The adoption of ERP and MRP systems was initially quite slow – management were content with the status quo and saw no reason to change what seemed to be working. However, the recession experienced in the late 1980s and early 1990s forced many companies to make a choice: Either find new ways of operating more efficiently and effectively, or go under. This created a massive boom in the ERP market, which lead to massive changes in the ways in which fundamental business operations were conducted, and those organizations that made it through the recession came out stronger.

North America is no longer the goods-producing collection of nations it once was and is instead dominated by service industries. However, many of the same problems that existed in manufacturing organizations twenty years ago still exist in these businesses: Lack of integration, inability to respond and take advantage of environmental change, time and money wasted on data entry and redundancies, and so on. Much like the recession twenty years ago, the economic downturn caused by the subprime mortgage crisis has forced many modern companies to find new ways of performing more effectively and efficiently.

This is the time to get ahead of the competition, and Microsoft Dynamics GP is the perfect solution for organizations looking for more than simple accounting and reporting features without high maintenance costs and complexity.

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.
