Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains)
What is Great Plains?
Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains) is an integrated financial management software solution. GP is suited to startup, small-medium and entrepreneurial companies requiring an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system with a broad feature set that can be rapidly implemented and adopted.
GP also fits the requirements of companies and enterprises operating in specialised industries, such as materials management and supply chain management (SCM) for hospitals and healthcare organisations, property management companies (catering for property rentals, leases, billings and expense management), retail (with integration to Microsoft RMS—Retail Management System), or requiring a system with pre- packaged integration to Microsoft Dynamics CRM (Customer Relationship Management).
Organisations in the not-for-profit sector—such as charities and foundations, and membership, professional and industry associations—and other non-profit entities like government, semi-government and statutory bodies and authorities—whose needs often involve extensive requirements for financial reporting, budgeting, grant management, analysis of revenues and expenditure, fixed asset accounting, purchasing authorisation and workflow, and integration with billing, membership, asset and equipment maintenance and payroll systems—are also well-served by GP.
Microsoft Dynamics GP has undergone continuous innovation and refinement since its inception in the 1990’s, reflecting in its stability and reliability as a Microsoft SQL Server-based ERP platform, and user-friendly menus and controls that are familiar to Microsoft Office and Outlook users.
Microsoft Dynamics Great Plains (GP) has a customisable general ledger structure, so you can analyse or report by cost centre, department, location or division—or however you prefer to setup your financial system. Using Analytical Accounting, users have even greater flexibility to track and analyse costs and revenues at the transaction level—especially for organisations needing project expenditure and costing analysis. And taking advantage of this flexibility are financial reporting choices such as FRx or Management Reporter—with multi-company and multi- currency reporting.
Other options for reporting and analysis include integrated SQL Server Analysis Cubes, Excel Report Builder, Crystal Reporting (Crystal Report Writer) and SSRS (SQL Server Reporting Services) reports, and integration with Jet Reports.
