GP Enhancement Renewal and Dynamics 365 Business Central
Greetings Dynamics GP Customers!
In the summer of 2020, Microsoft came out with a promotion for Dynamics GP customers. This promotion allows GP customers that are current on enhancement to receive Dynamics 365 Business Central licenses equal to your annual GP enhancement value at no additional cost.
This means that you can continue to use GP as you are today, but you can also start exploring the Business Central cloud product, to see if a transition to the cloud is right for your business. If you think that Business Central could be a good fit for the future, you can purchase licenses at a 60% discount (for a limited time) off the standard list price.
Why are we telling you this?
Prophet Business Group has been adding these Business Central licenses to each customer on your GP enhancement renewal date, so that when your are ready, you can start to explore the cloud option. Those customers whose enhancement renewal is between now and June 30, 2021, will be receiving the Business Central licenses when you pay your annual renewal.
Dynamics 365 Business Central
Business Central is great cloud offering, and it may be a good transition for many of you. If you are interested at looking further into moving to the cloud, please reach out and we can go through an assessment with you.
We would go through the discovery process, much as we did when you first purchased GP, to make sure that Business Central is a good fit for your organization. Many of you are using 3rd party add-ons to GP, to manage areas like job costing, or service etc. and we would want to make sure that you have similar capabilities in Business Central. In some cases, we may need to add “apps”, just like you added 3rd party products with GP.
Microsoft is pushing customers to transition their Business Software to the cloud, and the pandemic has forced all of us to take a good look at how we do business.
And you have options going forward:
- You can continue to use GP on premise if that works best for your organization
- You can continue to use GP but have it hosted in Azure
- You can add Power BI and Power Apps to GP to give you the Dashboards and KPI’s that GP does not currently have (on prem or hosted)
- You can choose to transition to Business Central and migrate your business to the cloud
Prophet Business Group will work with you and support you with whatever decision is right for your business.
