It’s that time of year! Microsoft Dynamics GP users are on the lookout for the annual year-end update. The 2020 year-end update is now available for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 and later.
Hot off the press! Microsoft just released the newest version of Dynamics GP. Microsoft has moved GP into the Modern Lifecycle meaning that to stay current on GP, you should plan on installing at least one service pack per year.

We want our business intelligence software to generate meaningful reports and insights on-demand. All of our software needs to work fast, and we refuse to compromise on security. With powerful tools like Microsoft Dynamics GP and PowerBI, these demands are met—but don’t be fooled, there’s a lot going on behind the curtain to make it work.
