Micro Force -Velosio Newsletter March 2021 - Get the Most from Your Dynamics GP Software System


With Spring officially underway, we continue to look forward to helping both you and your fellow GP users get the most from your Microsoft Dynamics GP business software system.

So read on below to learn about resources and tips that could hopefully permit you to do your job easier and more efficiently.


Why Not Use All of the Dynamic GP Software that You Are Entitled To?

There are over 30 "modules" that all Great Plains customers are entitled to use. Receivables, Payables, Bank Reconciliation and General Ledger are a few that are familiar to everyone. But there are many other modules that you are entitled to, for no additional licensing costs, that are part of your basic "Microsoft Dynamics GP licensing". Here is a partial list of those additional modules:

Here is a link to a document that not only lists all the Great Plains modules, but also provides a brief description of each, along with information about the other components of your top rated ERP business software system named Great Plains or Microsoft Dynamics GP.

If you feel that there could be value in using any of these modules, you may want to try them out in your test company. We can refresh data from a production company so that your testing will be easier. Email us at to schedule services to assist with this initiative.

Document attachment is available from the ribbon in additional transaction entry windows, as shown in the following illustration.
