Dynamics GP vs. QuickBooks

GP: A Better Alternative to Quickbooks

With over 3.5 million users, QuickBooks is one of the most popular small business accounting systems on the market.

Quickbooks offers good value for the money and an assortment of basic accounting features to meet the needs of many small businesses and startups. Unfortunately, while QuickBooks may be a good entry-level solution, it has significant limitations that prevent it from meeting the needs of growing businesses. Some of the challenges we have heard about include the need for separate payroll system, reporting is awkward, inability to predict labor costs and lack of modules for industries such as manufacturing, distribution and warehousing.

7 Signs That Your Business May Be Outgrowing QuickBooks

The qualities that make QuickBooks a good entry-level accounting solution are the same ones that make it inadequate to meet the needs of growing businesses.

Here are several indicators that your organization may be outgrowing QuickBooks:

  1. Limited reporting capabilities aren’t giving you the visibility and insight you need to run your business.
  2.  Multiple departments or lines of business are preventing you from centralizing and integrating your data.
  3.  You find yourself unable to confidently and consistently comply with regulations for monitoring and securing your financial data.
  4.  You experience frustrating and unacceptable delays in menus, reports, or navigation.
  5.  You have had to sacrifice transaction history or master records to improve system performance.
  6.  More users need to access the system than are currently allowed.
  7.  You are concerned about the lack of security and compliance features.

High Standard of Practice

Sometimes your business plan requires a special kind of data services and integration that will fully support your goals.  You numbers tell a story and your systems tell a story.  We want to help you bring that story to life by making good decisions about your ERP systems and especially if you are in the midst of a Microsoft Dynamics GP Upgrade – or if you have hit some roadblocks to maximizing your financial, inventory,CRM or other systems.

While your batch is still open. This feature makes it easier to view and make changes to invoices before they are processed and sent.

This feature enables you to open and preview one invoice at a time. But Microsoft also added a related new feature, the AR Invoice Preview, that makes it easy for you to view multiple items at one time. The AR Preview screen is like a Quick Query screen and an invoice preview screen merged together on one screen.[/stm_info_box]

Partners Look Ahead to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 Release

As Microsoft gets ready to roll out Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 on May 1, partners, MVPs and others are buzzing about the product’s new features.

In March when the company officially announced the upcoming release, Microsoft said Dynamics GP 2016 is going to transform the way people and businesses interact with-and what they expect from-their business solutions.

“As customary, the new upcoming major release of Microsoft Dynamics GP follows the trend of delivering new functionality along with bug fixes,” Mariano Gomez, Microsoft MVP and Sr. Software Engineer at Mekorma Inc. told us.

Major Focus: HTML Web Client

One of the reasons is the new HTML5 client that will work across devices like iPads and Android, enabling users to work when they want, how they want, with the device they want, according to Microsoft.

However, the major focal point is the release of a new HTML5 web client, which truly puts Dynamics GP on any device running any HTML5-compliant browser – inching closer and closer to Microsoft’s corporate goal, says Gomez.

Mark Polino, director of Client Services at Fastpath Inc., believes that the HTML 5 client is going be a “terrific” addition to Dynamics GP.

“The Silverlight web client gave us a glimpse of GP anywhere and I think the new HTML 5 web client will deliver on that vision,” he said. “And the connections into Power BI help unify GP 2016 with Microsoft’s broader vision for data insights.”

Popular Features

Customers can also expect some major usability enhancements, especially with the introduction of new All-In-One viewers for inventory and sales, along with some tighter integration between project accounting and requisitions.

“There are roughly 40 new enhancements in this new release so I personally encourage customers and partners to follow the Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog, from the Dynamics GP Product Management team to get the latest and greatest on the upcoming features,” Gomez said.

“The main features are: When importing a budget from Excel, an exception report will print displaying accounts that aren’t set up in Dynamics GP,” Grieve wrote.

Although the Budget Wizard is a good tool, Grieve said it has always been problematic to identify accounts on the budget upload that didn’t exist.

“This new feature will make importing budgets far easier now any missing accounts are highlighted. I have a couple of customers who might be tempted to upgrade just to get this one feature (including one who just upgrade to Dynamics GP 2015 R2.[/stm_icon_box]
