THE AGING OF DYNAMICS GP
Comments this year by NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson that Dynamics GP had disappeared from his company’s view as a competitor got me thinking that maybe the product is showing its age. A talk with a friend whose company uses GP produced an earful. He complained that the payroll provided for only vacation and holidays – for personal days the company had to buy Advanced Payroll, and generally, that the need to buy additional functions was pain and that Microsoft had been pumping out upgrades with little change in functionality.
