Reviews of Dynamics GP

from Pella Corporation says…

We upgraded to GP2013. The process was simple for us. A couple areas I thought were going to be tricky (migrating to Management Reporter and Econnect) were not as painful as I thought they would be.

The good: We like Dynamics GP as it is simple to use and each version keeps getting better.

The bad: We do have some orders that combine invoiced items with credit items and GP likes to keep these on separate items. It would be nice if it allowed this.

from Cornerstone Restaurant Group says…

We use Dynamics GP primarily for its Finance and Purchasing functions, but it can offer so much more. It is a truly dynamic software in every sense of the word, and can integrate with a multitude of other software programs. This will surely take your accounting system management to the next level.

The good: Details, details, details! Dynamics GP does a great job of storing transaction and vendor details, but also does a good job of allowing the user the ability to slice and dice the information as desired via its SmartList module. This has helped us greatly in preparing 1099’s for vendors, running A/P reports, and other things to help us analyze our business.

The bad: The software can be used for a small business, or a business as big as a Fortune 500 Enterprise. If you are a small business without an IT department, prepare to get your feet wet.

An Dynamics GP user says…

MS GP allows for customization, integrates with our system though various plugins, reporting is overly complicated. This can be over come if you have programmer to write reports, or purchase reporting software to simplify the process. Reconciliations are ok as long as it is a bank account only, forget credit card and other financial tools that one would typically need to reconcile. This too is over come by an expensive add on.

The good: its ability to integrate with other systems

The bad: reporting capabilities is way too complicated, even for basic reports. Drill down would be a nice feature for out of the box reports.

from Redwood Mortgage says…

The software will reduce our time and increase our accuracy for financial reporting by holding greater amounts of information and increasing our reporting capabilities.

On the downside, the ease of attaching backup documents directly to journal entries does not appear to be a slick process.

The good: The ability to have a Chart of Accounts with a variety of segments to allow us to track and report in greater detail.

The bad: Attaching documents directly to transactions does not appear to be an easy process. This may hamper our goal of eliminating paper stored in binders, drawers, etc.

An Dynamics GP user says…

Dynamics GP is a full-featured accounting suite with so many customizable modules it will make your head spin. Once you get everything the way you like it, its a fantastic application that will speed up your accounting department and decrease human error.

The good: I was only involved with the installation and setup, but I enjoyed how relatively painless the whole process was.

The bad: It has so many features that it can be overwhelming, and when something goes wrong, the error descriptions are not always helpful.

from East Texas Copy Systems, Inc. says…

Moved from QuickBooks to GP without conversion of most of our history. Our Vendor made the conversion smooth and setups, with their help, were easy and smooth! Reports are extremely easy to setup and allow greater control over financial position. We are now reporting not only for our locations, but departments within our locations across the state. Great step for us!

The good: This product allows us to set up locations and departments so that we can track our operations and see trends or problems long before we ever could before. We are not as finite with the software as we could be, it allows for 5 subclasses of accounts, we are only using 2, but for us it is enough!

The bad: Reporting takes a little research to figure out as it is a separate module and runs off of the SQL Reporting engine.

from Bay Disposal & Recycle says…

We just implemented the software December 2nd. We haven’t fully gotten involved with all it will do but am “LOVING IT” so far. We were using a very old and outdated system previously.

The good: Still VERY new to the software. But it is Excel friendly and Windows based so it is much easier to work with.

The bad: Still working out the kinks.
