One of the best parts about Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 is that it’s easy to adopt, and easy to use.  It retains the look and feel of Microsoft Office products and other Microsoft applications that your users likely have experience with and use on a daily basis.  This means less training, less end-user confusion, and faster adoption rates to make for an easy transition.

Accessing various parts of the application is fast with optimal navigation that works according to intuition and logic.  Getting around Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 is simple and can be done with the fewest number of clicks possible.

Collaborative Capabilities-

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 brings new levels of collaboration to organizations.  New features like Document Attach allow you to connect relevant context to each transaction.  With this feature you can attach informative details, pictures, notes, or contracts directly to a transaction or line item, giving your employees the information they need to be up-to-date, right where they need it.

Functionality in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 is role-tailored, giving your people relevant insights they need on a day-to-day basis.  Well-defined roles and access to the right information means your team can fully utilize the software while still providing you with full control over security and critical functions.  Not only can you remain secure and compliant, but you can also ensure a detailed and accurate audit trail with tighter, role-based security controls.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Dynamics CRM, connecting your back office accounting data with your sales, marketing, and customer service data to improve collaboration, productivity, and service management.  Connecting the two systems provides company-wide access to all the data necessary for the many roles in an enterprise, creating synergy and time-saving benefits for team members.

Deployment and Mobility-

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 has multiple deployment options to fit the needs and budget of any business.  Organizations that require private control over their data, extensive customizations, and a high number of users may consider on-premise deployment.  On-premise deployment gives businesses greater control over their software and data environments, but also means more investment in supporting infrastructure and IT staff.

Businesses that require lower costs in the short term, greater mobility, or have varying numbers of users may consider an online deployment.  When you host Microsoft Dynamics GP in the cloud, your team gets all the comprehensive functionality of the on-premise version, but on a subscription basis and with greater mobile access for your employees.
