Explore the Benefits of Hosting Your Microsoft Dynamics GP Solution

Visit Website View Our Posts

Having your Microsoft Dynamics GP solution hosted means your software application resides in a data center and can be instantly accessed and shared throughout your company through a Web browser 365 days a year 24 hours a day.

By moving your on-site systems to a hosted environment, you are typically guaranteed service level agreements of 99.5% system up-time. What does that mean to you? You can rest assured of the security and reliability of your business-critical ERP application. According to a Gartner Group study, two out of five companies that experience a catastrophic event or prolonged system outage never resume operations, of those that do, one out of three goes out of business two years later. Make sure your hosting provider has an up-time guarantee to help avoid the catastrophic losses that can result from system outages.

A typical hosting agreement takes responsibility for support, maintenance, installations, upgrades and security on a 24x7 basis. By moving your on-premise to a hosted environment, you will enjoy:

• Greater security, availability, and control of your data

• Enhanced performance

• Anytime, anywhere, reliable access, ideal for multiple offices and/or remote users

• Simplified implementation of upgrades and installations

• Lower hardware costs

• Always up-to-date with automatic updates with no loss to productivity

• Reduced maintenance costs and increased ROI

• Lessened reliance on and investment in internal IT infrastructure with outsourced technical support

• Predictable monthly maintenance costs

• Built- in disaster recovery/restoration

  1. Jim makes some great points, and you'll want to make sure that your hosting provider includes Excel and Word so you can take advantage of the integration with GP and Office.

    Linda does a really good job of identifying what to look for when comparing hosting providers: http://tinyurl.com/27arpl6
