The Advantages of Using Dynamics GP Payroll

Visit Website View Our Posts

Do you realize that some companies have paid $100,000 to use Dynamics GP Payroll and Human Resources for unlimited employees? But if you purchased GP after December 2012, you have been able to use the Payroll module at NO COST. So why would companies move away from GP payroll too soon? 

Well, let's address the elephant in the room – Microsoft's decision to shift focus. Yes, there's a lot of talk about Microsoft's Dynamics GP support going away, but we're here to tell you, it's not the end of the road. DLD Business Solutions will be supporting Dynamics GP far beyond 2028 when Microsoft may stop mainstream support.  And we have the background and expertise needed to help you run payroll from your existing Dynamics GP system. And save you quite a bit of money by doing so. 

We think our team at DLD Business Solutions can build a strong case that continuing to run Dynamics GP Payroll might just be the smart choice for your payroll needs.   Why convert to a new payroll system too soon and pay thousands of additional dollars when you already own it by continuing to pay the Microsoft annual maintenance plan?

Why Choose DLD for Dynamics GP Payroll?

DLD has supported Microsoft Dynamics GP payroll since 1999.  Our team has implemented and supported payroll for companies with over 10,000 employees to businesses with 100 employees.  Some of DLD's successful payroll implementations include QSR restaurants, national senior care facilities, regional pest control companies, retail stores and casinos.  GP Payroll has been our trusted companion in handling the complexity of large-scale payrolls.

Payroll – it's the heartbeat of any business. The numbers, the intricacies, the attention to detail. For us, it's not just a task; it's a passion. At our core, we love to ensure that our clients take advantage of all the features within GP payroll.  

Why the Hesitation with Dynamics GP Payroll?

We get it; Microsoft's shift has made some wary. But we're here to be the support you need. Most GP partners might not offer payroll services and support, but we specialize in it. We're not suggesting you implement GP Payroll anew if you don't already own GP. But if you're already on it, rest assured, we're committed to servicing you long after 2028 or beyond when Microsoft decides to end mainstream support. 

Unleashing the Power of GP Payroll

Ever felt like you're not tapping into GP's full potential? We can help streamline your processes. From pay codes to employee classes, SmartLists to role-based security, there's a wealth of features many users don't realize exist. For example, we worked with a senior care facility, optimizing SmartLists along with user security classes to ensure managers only see the payroll information they need, and that meant they did not have to purchase an expensive third party add on. When you ask the right person the right questions, you can get the right answers and save a whole lot of time and money.

The Dynamics GP SmartList Advantage

Speaking of SmartLists…. It's not just about payroll; it's about empowering your managers and users. Create reports tailored to your needs, exportable to Excel for that extra flexibility. SmartList Builder, SmartList Designer, or adding new SQL view – we can leverage these tools to make your reporting more meaningful and efficient.

Dynamics GP Payroll - Cost-Effective and Efficient

"But why GP Payroll when outsourcing is on the rise?" you might ask. The answer lies in cost and efficiency. The cost of ownership is remarkably low, especially if you're already using GP. Greenshades modules can enhance functionality, and the Greenshades tax service is something we always recommend. Outsourcing payroll can be a significant expense, but with a hybrid approach – say 80% Dynamics GP Payroll (which you already own) and 20% trusted ISVs including Greenshades, Integrity Data and eOne Solutions – you get the best of both worlds.

Reports, Reports, Reports

Ah, reporting – a pain point for many. The misconception that GP reports are lacking needs to be debunked. GP runs on an SQL database, meaning we can get you the reports you need and desire. Custom Dynamics GP reports are our specialty, ensuring that your unique needs are met, and you're not stuck with a one-size-fits-all solution.

Conclusion – Making the Wise Choice

In the ever-evolving landscape of payroll services, choosing to stay Dynamics GP Payroll might seem like a bold move, but it's one rooted in experience, functionality, and cost-effectiveness. We're not just a service provider; we're your partners in navigating the intricacies of payroll management.

So, is continuing to use Dynamics GP Payroll crazy or crazy smart? We say it's the latter – a decision backed by a legacy of successful payroll management, a commitment to support, and the untapped potential within GP that many overlook. Ready to explore the possibilities? Let's chat, and together, let's make your payroll journey crazy smart!
