OmniVue Business Solutions helped our client replace their costly Oracle ERP system with a robust Microsoft Dynamics solution and they realized tremendous cost savings. And we’re doing it more and more, as upper mid market businesses are realizing that they can have the same tier-one type functionality with a much lower total cost of ownership with Microsoft Dynamics GP.

When meeting with prospects about a new ERP solution, one common top critical business requirement we hear is “Ease of Getting Data Out”. There are a variety of tools to address this common requirement when using Microsoft Dynamics GP as your ERP solution. Here are some examples: Excel Reporter, Smartlist, Smartlist Builder, SQL Reporting Services, Analysis Cubes, MS Query, FRx, GP Report Writer, Enterprise Reporting, Crystal Reports, Custom Dexterity, And more. . .

There are just a few days left for users of the now discontinued Microsoft Small Business Financials (SBF) to get a 90% discount to upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics GP. It is like Microsoft is just begging SBF customers to upgrade. You can get Microsoft Dynamics GP user licenses for $225 instead of $2250. But this offer expires June 26, 2009. Back in August 2008 Microsoft released this statement:

When I meet with a new prospect, I am often asked to provide collaborative evidence of how the Microsoft Dynamics GP solution stacks up against the competition, as if by doing so all other decision criteria become less important. And yes, in my sales “toolkit” I have access to numerous studies and can cite various sources that rank Great Plains as the top middle market solution, but I find competing solutions can dig up some survey from somewhere that also shows their solution as the top choice.
