Now, more than ever before, the pace with which you conduct all operations can dictate your success. Moving slowly means falling behind – and this isn’t a tortoise and hare type situation. In today’s digital age, you need to be able to keep up and move quickly. When it comes to Microsoft Dynamics Great Plains integrations, the more you’re connected, the better off you’ll be.

On its own, Microsoft Dynamics GP is a fantastic, comprehensive, out-of-the-box ERP which gives you better visibility and control over your business with a unique combination of integrated business intelligence, collaboration and communication tools. It can handle huge amount of data and has been around for a long time.

However, while powerful standing alone, it can become even more so when properly integrated. After all, with all of the information floating around in your data systems, doesn’t it make sense that that data all be connected? We think so.

Why should your systems be integrated? The answer is fairly simple. By ensuring your systems are fully integrated, you can reduce time and resources thanks to the automated syncing of your data. Double or triple entries of the numbers are no longer needed, which means far less room for errors. Furthermore, no back and forth is needed between systems/spreadsheets, meaning time spent is reduced. Again, this also reduces the number of mistakes made by manual input. Integration also works to improve readability overall.

Think about your current payroll system, for example. With seamless integration, all of the required information necessary for payroll is easily (and quickly) accessible – no more searching back and forth, worrying about missed numbers. With a large organization, this is essential. Payroll mistakes can cost you huge. With Great Plains integrations, you’re better positioned to avoid those costly mistakes.

Your various systems – manufacturing systems, different POS systems, distribution systems – these all need to be integrated so that your data is being pulled from every source – giving you access to one, fully-loaded data source with all the relevant information from all systems.

Centralizing your data is important – and a benefit – and so too is being able to report from the data to provide more accurate results for better decision making. What’s worse than having to manually put together a report from all different sources?

While GP is a great back-end system, many companies prefer to use an industry specific solution for their day-to-day operations. Just make sure that the system can integrate with your financials system and that data can easily be pulled through. GP is great for all the financials, but you need the right partner to make sure you’re getting the right data – a partner who knows how to manage integration and merge all units.
