GP 2018

Why Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2 for your ERP / Financials ?

(September 2019).  YES, Microsoft Dynamics GP is actively being SUPPORTED and SOLD by Microsoft via authorized partners. 
We expect that Microsoft Dynamics GP will continue to be supported and enhanced for many years to come, including an update later this year.  (Anyone who says otherwise is either grossly miss-informed or selfishly bending the truth). 

Microsoft has announced that Microsoft Dynamics GP (2020) will be released on October 1, 2019.

As Microsoft is actively promoting its new cloud-based Dynamics 365 Business Central ERP directly via its website, Microsoft is relying heavily on partners such as Endeavour Solutions to continue to promote and educate clients on the LONG TERM value of Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains).  See below for the current product roadmap.

Microsoft Dynamics GP is a mid-market server-based ERP that is fast to implement, easy to configure and simple to use.  Dynamics GP is used within large, small and mid-sized businesses on-premises, in a private cloud, or on Azure (Microsoft private cloud hosted).

The key to corporate growth is linked to the financial, operational and analytical technical base that ONLY a well-designed and properly implemented ERP system can provide. Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains) is a MATURE PRODUCT that is proven, stable and safe.  Despite Microsoft's marketing focus on launching new products and brands (Dynamics 365) into the market, Dynamics GP is still the largest within the Dynamics ERP family across Canada and USA, and is continually being enhanced and expanded by Microsoft's development team in Fargo ND.  Microsoft Dynamics GP along with its strong ISV community (largest ERP ISV community in North America) and strong Office 365 and CRM integration has a broad line of integrated, adaptable business management capabilities that automate and streamline financial, customer relationship, and supply chain processes in a way that will help you drive business success.

There has historically been a new release of Dynamics GP once or twice a year with GP 2015 R2 being released July 2015, Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016  in May 2016,  GP 2016 R2 on December 1, 2016 and the current Dynamics GP 2018 R2which was released in October 2018.  As seen in this GP 2018 R2 Roadmap, Microsoft is planning a future set of annual releases each year. With Dynamics GP (2020) being released October 2019.

Note: Dynamics GP 10.0 and GP 2010, are both off of Microsoft mainstream support, though Endeavour will still support you.  Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2 ended Microsoft mainstream support in July 2017. GP 2015 R2 ends mainstream support in April 2020.  Now is the time to consider an upgrade to Dynamics GP 2018 or GP 2018 R2 to stay current.

Great Plains 2018

New Workflow 4.00 within Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 via Web Services

Workflow and employee self service previously offered via Business Portal (Workflow 1.0) has been embedded into Dynamics GP, starting with GP 2013 in conjunction with SharePoint, and further evolving to a fully embedded Workflow 2.0 via Web Services starting with GP 2013 R2. SharePoint is no longer a requirement for workflow with Dynamics GP.

What is Workflow 4.0? It started out at Workflow 2.0 then Workflow 3.0 to supports employee self-service and involves a variety to business logic steps (if-then) linking to active directory and other approval structures via e-mail or other Dynamics GP notifications to notify, review and approve/deny and edit specific requests. The following is a list of Workflow items available in Dynamics GP.  Combined with the Document Attach function within Dynamics GP, automated e-mails with system generated attachments can be sent for internal approval via e-mail, and approvals can be made via e-mail (Mobile too) without the approving authority needing to log into Dynamics GP.
