There is no doubt that the Microsoft Dynamics family of software can streamline and enhance your business. The robust set of tools on offer by Dynamics GP will help you simplify workflows and engage in more accurate metrics reporting. There’s just one small problem: How, exactly, do you go about purchasing and implementing the software?

Here’s a quick overview of the process:

Getting Started

The first step in implementing GP 2013 is contacting a certified Microsoft partner. Partners provide you with the support you’ll need during the initial deployment period, along with support once you’re moving along with the software. A Dynamics partner can help you to understand what GP can and can’t do for your business and help you build industry-specific solutions that will benefit you over the long haul.


Your partner’s next job is to successfully set up the software into your business. This is a multi-step process that covers the basic installation and other technical aspects, along with training and workflow analysis. A good Microsoft partner not only ensures that GP is up and running, but that your employees know how to make the most out of its features.

Continuing Support

Your Microsoft Dynamics partner will assist you with several critical functions after Dynamics has deployed. They will provide you with service and support when you’re having difficulty, and will work to ensure your software stays updated and falls within the most recent regulatory guidelines. Additionally, you can make use of Microsoft’s online training sessions to deepen your knowledge of the software.

When the time comes to purchase GP 2013, you won’t be buying it from Microsoft and sent to find your own way. Instead, you’ll be in the experienced hands of a certified partner who’s there to make sure the software strengthens your business and makes your life easier.
