Microsoft Dynamics GP ERP system is a good fit for manufacturing, energy plants in downstate Illinois as well as mid-size and smaller businesses in agriculture, services, wholesale and retail (especially with integration to Microsoft RMS), non-profit organizations and virtually all the others potential Great Plains Dynamics customers in the state of Illinois.   We invite you to see GP presentation and business processes mapping.  Let’s take a look at GP implementation phases:

1.       ERP selection.  Here you must review many if not all major MRP packages to see which one fits your business and has the functionality to support your business growth and expansion if planned

2.       Business Processes Mapping.  When you decide to implement Dynamics GP, then you should have your GP business partner or consultant to make modules selection and map business processes for implementation

3.       Legacy accounting data conversion to Dynamics GP.  Here you need sort of compromise on deciding how much data to bring to GP.  The easiest and cheapest GP integration could give you just master records import: GL accounts, customers, vendors, employees and beginning GL balances.  We often here customer requirements to bring everything from legacy ERP to GP – this “everything” typically means Historical transactions: AR and AP invoices, GL historical transactions, etc.  We typically discourage the customer from such steps and rather recommend keeping old accounting system for just data lookup

4.       User training and switch to production.  User training is typically precise and very dependent on your GP system setup, so generic training, which you could get in the learning centers may not necessary be sufficient
