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.

“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.”
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.

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]
