Background and Analyst View

Great Plains Software created Great Plains, one of the first accounting packages in the United States, in the early 1980s. The initial disk operating system (DOS)-based version was converted into a Windows-based accounting system in the 1990s. Great Plains Software acquired Solomon Software in 1999, and Microsoft acquired Great Plains Software two years later, in 2001, and Navision Software in 2002.
 
When acquired by Microsoft, Great Plains Software had three products in its offering: Great Plains Dynamics, Great Plains eEnterprise, and Small Business Financials. Several years later, the two main products (Dynamics and eEnterprise) merged to form Microsoft Business Solutions Great Plains (GP). Read more

TEC Analyst Observations on Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0

The new version of Microsoft Dynamics GP brings new functionality created by Microsoft based on customer feedback and market research. The enhancements in version 10.0 can be separated into two major categories: technical (briefly described in the Product Highlights section of this report) and functional (discussed in the Product Analysis section). There are also new
general features, which apply to any Microsoft Dynamics GP implementation, and regional enhancements, such as HR-specific features for the Andean region, Argentina, Canada, Belgium, and Chile.
 
Concerning functionality specific to process manufacturing, Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 provides very good functionality for discrete manufacturing, but many of the criteria specific to process manufacturing are supported through third-party integration. This means that companies with basic needs for process manufacturing may find Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 to be a good choice for them, but those that need advanced functionality should perform a more in-depth analysis of their needs versus the Microsoft offering.
