One of the things I’ve appreciated most about the Dynamics GP team in Fargo over the past year is their dedication to fixing the “small stuff”. These are the minor inconveniences of using an ERP system that often get overlooked (like the ability to change the printer or an added hyperlink to a related record) that have been in the development backlog for years. I think
One of the major pushes of Microsoft is to increase the release cadence of software. Dynamics GP has a major release now twice a year, and that has added some new complexity. With more frequent releases, the development team shifted to releasing new code to partners and customers at the same time, because there was little time to provide a pre-release to partners.
Fortunately, someone in Fargo is listening. More importantly, reacting. They’ve heard the ISV community loud and clear, and because they understand and care about the end customer experience, they quickly adapted to our needs. This most recent release was given to us as ISVs before the general release, giving us time to test and fix any new issues that crept in (and they often do). Thanks to the GP Team’s responsiveness, we were able to fully test and fix new issues and be ready-for-market the same day Microsoft Dynamics GP released to the general customer audience. That’s HUGE for us and huge for customers.
Thanks, Fargo, for listening, and helping us collectively do the right thing.
