Microsoft Dynamics GP Distribution Accounting Software


 

Microsoft Dynamics GP is a financial accounting system designed to meet the requirements of small to midsize businesses. Microsoft Dynamics GP was originally developed by North Dakota-based Great Plains Software and was acquired by Microsoft in 2001.

Microsoft Dynamics GP has applications for financial management, human resources management, manufacturing planning, supply chain management, field service, business intelligence, collaboration, compliance and IT management. There are also a la carte modules which can be purchased separately, along with hundreds of third-party applications from independent software vendors (ISVs), which can be added to the system to fit additional needs.

Dynamics GP leverages Microsoft’s Windows and .NET frameworks. The system can be deployed on-site or hosted for a monthly fee. The company and its partners provide benefits such as online training and support.

Like to have drilldown function

Pros

We use Microsoft Dynamics as our accounting software. We are a wholesale industry. We feel it is easy to use.

Cons

We think it has a limited search function. Like drill down the information to the original entries.

Pros

Good controls with audit trail. Has good importing function for Journal entries and inventory receipts to facilitate a 3 way match.

Needs better reports built into the system and not reply solely on Management Reporter. Preexisting list of reports added to smartlist.

Average but it's the 2013 version

I find this software to be cumbersome and not very user friendly when it comes to things that should flow easily like payroll. I also find the reporting isn't as easily manipulated for individuals that don't have the back-end database tables knowledge. Please keep in mind that we are still using the 2013 version and although our consultant has tried to help with things like smartlist; it's still not as comprehensive as many other systems on the market.

Pros

The accounting aspect is relatively easy to follow.

Cons

Reporting.

This product was fairly easy to learn how to use. I think it could be more simple. I would like to see the reporting system more user-friendly and would like to be able to delete vendors and customers when they have been duplicated. Also would like to be able to edit the checkbook ID, vendor ID and customer ID. Other than that I enjoy working with GP. It is a good software.

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. I use the pdf and csv formats often.

Cons

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

The basic accounting functions are fine and compares well to peers.

Cons

We have yet to find an add-on to handle our grant billing that isn't either too simple or too complex for our needs.
Reporting sucks.
Annual maintenance is expensive.

I have been using Great Plains product for over 25 years. It was one of the first companies to offer flexibility for company growth without limitations.

Pros

I love the security , and reports that can be created and exported to excel. Works great with Microsoft office suite since it is Microsoft owned

Cons

Learning curve getting use to. Very detailed setting up. Requires partner to install and support.

I've used this software for 6 years and expect to keep doing so. There is so much support from our Microsoft partner and GPUG.

Pros

I love the smartlists. I also love the adding products available to handle situations like sales taxes.

Cons

There are many different reporting options available to use but are there ever really enough.

Advice to Others

Visit GPUG.com and look around and see the user's point of view of what the product is about and how it can help you instead of a sales point of view.

I had problems with Microsoft. Specifically, Microsoft crashed on 05/16. Unfortunately, Microsoft Office had a virus. Once I removed that virus, then I may be in a market for a new Toshiba Satellite Laptop. Previously, I had owned my Toshiba Satellite Laptop since 2009. So, I owned that lap for eight years.

Pros

Microsoft Office was good for three things. First, Microsoft Office helped me keep organized. Second, Microsoft Office helped with finances. Third, Microsoft Office helped with communication.

Cons

I had problems with Microsoft.

I am a true believer in Microsoft GP products. This accounting software, although a bit cumbersome to initially learn, is well worth the education. The ease with which you can navigate from customer related transactions, to back end AR functions, and over to strictly financial entries, is incomparable. Many accounting software systems, although quick and easy, do not give you a clear overview of distribution and coding layout. GP allows you to clearly access what has been recorded, and makes it easy to reverse anything if necessary. The "Smart List" is one of it's finest features. This tool allows you to not only access reports, but to streamline, and create reports that are tailored specifically for your needs. I believe this is one of the best systems out there for processing of manufactured goods, and inventory control. I highly recommend Microsoft Dynamics GP - Manufacturing!

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**

Advice to Others

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!

Microsoft Dynamics isn't very intuitive and overall usability isn't up to par with other accounting software I have used, its user interface and functionality leaves a lot to be desired.I was however impressed with its thoroughness, highly-customizable dashboard and you can keep very detailed records.

Pros

Ability to keep very detailed records and records transaction forms, easily customizable reports and strong support from resellers.

Cons

User Interface is not very intuitive, looks out dated and has long learning curve.

Advice to Others

Its good value for money and has good support. I would say Its not a bad purchase.
