We recently held a Microsoft Dynamics GP User Group Meeting in St. Louis, MO.  Our feature speakers were the owners from Reporting-Central.  One of their products that caught my attention was “The Validator”.  This product helps Dynamics GP users eliminate manual validation and reconciliation processes to make Microsoft Dynamics GP a better business solution by continuously monitoring critical areas of their solution.  Also, another major takeaway that I think many current users of Microsoft Dynamics GP would find very interesting are the most commonly overlooked Set-Up and On-Going Use issues in Dynamics GP.  Here is a small list that Reporting-Central shared with us.


User Security Set To POWERUSER

Future Fiscal Periods Open

Maximum Account Length set too low

Posting Not Set To Create Journal Entry Per Transaction

Dex Lock

Interrupted Batch

Stuck Process

Account Maintenance Allows Account Entry on Control Account

Account Posting Level Set To Summary

Maintain Account History Not Checked

Retained Earnings Category Not Set to 27

Checkbook Allows Duplicate Check Numbers

Customer Accounts Receivable Control Account empty

Maintenance Customer Missing Salesperson

Maintenance Customer Missing Tax Schedule

Vendor 1099 Box Checked With No Tax Id

Old Open Purchase Orders


These are just a small sample of the issues that Reporting-Central’s software can monitor and alert Microsoft Dynamics GP users.
