Imagine configuring new companies in Dynamics GP in minutes rather than hours or days. In the Rapid Implementation session at (GPUG Pre-Game) – Jay, Gloria and Scott showed how they have done this in the past few months. Dynamics GP has great new tools for speeding up configurations, migrations for new implementations – RapidStart. Microsoft is going to start marketing this tool heavily, so make sure you are up to speed with the tool!
This session had the following stalwarts -
- Jay Manley (Sr. Product Manager – Microsoft)
- Gloria J. Braunschweig, (CMA President)
- Scott Dimmick (Practice Manager – Tribridge)
Naturally, the seasoned Dynamics GP consultants would go – well that would only work in some cases. And, you would be absolutely right! What I loved in Rapid start was the ability to create templates that you could reuse across industries.
RapidStart comes with inbuilt integrations for Quickbooks, Peachtree and excel templates that can be used with other software.
However, this being the first version there are some caveats -
- Not all modules are supported (project accounting / canadian payroll, australian GST to name a few )
- The tool does a complete sync of all setups supported (not a partial sync)
Still it would be a great starting point, and all GP Partners should be looking at this. Get the tool for FREE at
