Do you use HR and Payroll in Dynamics GP? Are you currently running Dynamics GP 2013 or 2013 R2? Then it’s time to think about upgrading. Microsoft will issue one final payroll tax update in January 2018, but that will be the last release.
As a side note, it’s recommended that all Dynamics GP 2013 customers start planning for an upgrade, as GP 2013 will be entering extended support in April 2018. (Which sounds like a long way off, but will sneak up on you before you know it.) Just keep in mind that, depending on the version you upgrade to, this may involve a two-stage process.
Once Dynamics GP 2013 enters extended support, there will be no new feature additions, warranty claims or no-charge incident support. Tax and year-end updates will also end, but there will still be security updates.
If you’re looking for more reasons to upgrade, check out the Opening General Session slide deck from this year’s Dynamics User Group to see some of the great new features in Dynamics GP 2016 and 2016 R2. When you’re ready to start planning your upgrade, get in touch with Prophet and we can get you scheduled.
