Very robust product, not good fit if you don't need all the features.

2016-08-26

Pros

But we do not have to keep track of inventories, and we do not use GP to track our sales or supply chains.

Cons

GP does not integrate well with any non-Microsoft product, causing constant issues.

Make sure you really need all the 'bells and whistles' included in this product, or if you can choose something simpler that may have less features but which is easier for you staff to learn and use.

Great product.

Pros

Great product that works with other Microsoft products

Cons

reporting is not great out of the system. there are smartlists that can be used, but as far as creating management reports, you may want to use another software.

Underwhelming Business Optimization

2016-03-24

Pros

GP has the potential to do much of what you would expect from an enterprise software system.

Cons

Therefore, we have had to purchase a third party software to dual track / translate cases and pounds --- this is a clunky process.

Recommendations to others considering Hosted Dynamics GP

Before considering any software systems, rigorously document and flow out the true reality of your current systems --- be rigorous about this If you don't understand your current situation, the systems you select to drive your future will probably be suboptimal. Define in detail what you want to out of a new system and specifically understand what decisions you would make differently based on these insights. Then clearly define what base date inputs must go into the system to support your desired outputs. When you have completed these tasks, reach out to a systems consultant to help you select the software which can best convert those inputs into your desired outputs. All of the above may sound like common sense; however, my experience indicates that it is rarely done.

Very Powerful Tool that can be Difficult to Use

2016-04-09

Pros

These can be re-sized and moved around on your monitor so that what you need to see can be seen when you need to see it, if that makes sense.

Cons

The entire user interface feels like something from the early 2000s.

Good accounting software

2018-05-09

Pros

The reports export to excel format nicely and are easy to customized the columns to meet your needs.

Cons

The GL account description does not show up when entering the account codes in any module so you wouldn't really notice if you keyed in the wrong account.

Microsoft Dynamics GP

2018-05-08

Pros

This system is laid out like a folder on your PC, making it intuitive for most users to learn. The import/export functionality is robust and allowed my organization to seamlessly integrate external website sales into the order processing/accounting module.

Cons

In order to share reports, the solution requires SharePoint, and there are times when the system processes slowly.

Microsoft Dynamics GP

2015-06-01

Pros

Creating new accounts and entering journal entries are very straight forward. Management Reporter - the reporting package with Microsoft Dynamics GP is a step up from FRx.

Cons

I'm sure with additional training, it would be much easier but this is the one area that I find not quite intuitive.

Easy to use, convenient to have web access, but lack of features

2017-09-15

A decent system to use, but was disappointing due to the lack of flexibility in terms of generating reports/export functions - not as great as I would have expected from a Microsoft product.

Pros

-Web access -Single database -Integration with a variety of reporting suites -A widely use system since it is Microsoft based, and a huge community to get help with if there are any issues

Cons

Not truly web-based as it relies on the program to be housed on a server; -Limited in terms of GL reports - cannot jump ranges of accounts, or have multiple ranges in a single report like our old system -takes a while to load reports like SmartList Favourites, and does not have as much flexibility as our old system -freezes quite a lot -tax limitations on the Accounts Payable module -Desktop version slow

But if you need the ability to customize your reports, you should consider FRx.

Pros

t's role tailored software that's easy to implement and use It looks and feels familiar to software your people use every day: Microsoft Office Excel, Outlook, and Word It enables fast, relevant access to current and complete information about your business activities and operations It goes beyond basic reporting and extends insight across your entire organization It seamlessly integrates with your other technology platforms It permits one to over 1,000 concurrent users It's highly customizable with dozens of industry-specific solutions It automates and standardizes recurring tasks It's scalable, versatile and flexible

Cons

With respect to the allocations, once the expense is entered into the allocation account, you lose the ability to run any detail on just the total of the expense. It would be nice if you could run a trial balance on the allocation accounts the same way you can with regular accounts. I've always thought security set up could be a bit simpler. It actually has gotten better through the years. Specifically, with eight separate entities, it would be nice to have a "master" setup where you could call up one group entity, assign the users rights, and then be finished. Currently, whenever I have a new user, I have to call up each individual entity and select all of the features I want the user to have. That means I have to do eight steps for each user.

Solid mid market ERP system

2016-09-16

Pros

We run a manufacturing operation with deep. multi level BOMs and FIFO costing, GP manages it very well.

Cons

On the back end trying to find the table the data is stored in takes a lot of time so the learning curve from a reporting sense is very long.

We chose this software because it's a solid solution that manages FIFO costing in a manufacturing environment. It would be good to have a clear understanding of what the report buildout will entail. Like most erp systems there will be considerable buildout but in this system the lack of insight into which tables the data is stored in causes pain for customers and VARs alike. You also need to plan to write a sizable check to upgrade, periodically.

Microsoft Dynamics GP Manufacturing Rave

2016-12-06

I believe this is one of the best systems out there for processing of manufactured goods, and inventory control.

Pros

Report Building Distribution and coding clarity Easy navigation Excellent Customer support

Cons

Product does bog down occasionally, if too many people are on it ( usually more a month end kind of issue) Very detailed - makes for slower learning of system **However, in the end is worth the work**

If you have a company that you anticipate growth in - this is the product for you. Adding new users is an easy task, and comes with the great customer support. The software does take a little more training to master than some. but is well worth the time invested. Employees that are using this system, but lack a lot of accounting background. can easily see the steps they have taken, and how to correct them if necessarily. Well worth the investment!

Clunky and complicated

2017-03-09

I find this software to be complicated and not at all user friendly. It seems like you have to repeat information in several different area's that should just flow from one to another.

Pros

I like that you can export your reports in many formats.

Cons

You have to repeatedly input information. I think it should flow from one page to the next.
