The Nuts and Bolts of Purchasing Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013

Visit Website View Our Posts

Microsoft sells Microsoft Dynamics GP via a network of Value Added Resellers who implement, customize, and support the solution for the particular needs of each customer. For Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 (, Microsoft introduced a new licensing model that they call Perpetual Licensing. This licensing model greatly simplifies how you purchase the ERP solution, replacing a long list of a la carte options with two main components, the Starter Pack and the Extended Pack.

Small and midsize businesses can quickly and affordably get started with Dynamics GP 2013 by simply purchasing the Starter Pack. The Starter Pack covers financial management, business intelligence, human resource management, and supply chain management, and it includes three Full User licenses, all for one price. Many businesses need only the Starter Pack.

Note that additional software licenses may be required for Microsoft Windows Server, Microsoft SQL Server, or Microsoft SharePoint Server, as these are not included with the Starter Pack license.

Businesses looking for greater functionality than that found in the Starter Pack can also license the optional Extended Pack, an extension to the Starter Pack. The Extended Pack covers manufacturing, project management, and customer relationship management, and it also includes more advanced extensions to the Starter Pack's business intelligence and supply chain management functionality.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 also offers four ancillary packs that can further extend your business solution:

  • Customization Pack: for deeply integrating or customizing the application.
  • SmartList Builder Pack: for creating rich reports without a developer.
  • Collections Management: the name says it all. A tool to help you reduce your accounts receivables balance.
  • Extended Human Resources and Payroll: the Starter Pack includes standard US and Canadian Payroll and HR for an unlimited number of employees. This extension offers more flexibility beyond the standard.
