We know you’ve been thinking about it. You're a small to medium-sized business, and you've had an out-of-the-box QuickBooks solution for years. You also have one legacy system for inventory management, another one for payroll, something else for sales, and so on. You know there's a lot of duplication in these systems, and it takes some effort to integrate everything together.

Microsoft SharePoint wants to be the communications center for your business. Microsoft has created a powerful family of products designed to drive the small to mid-size business toward success in a competitive marketplace:
Dynamics GP Integration Manager is a handy little tool that was designed to allow you to load data into GP manually. You can add data from an XML, text file or database. It's an excellent add-on that helps reinforce data integrity.

Managing operations is an increasingly challenging and complex process fraught with changing customer dynamics and increasing competition. One of the greatest benefits of the Microsoft suite is that they offer affordable software that streamlines all of the functions in your business. Adding ecommerce to Microsoft Dynamics GP integrates all business functions—from back-end inventory to front-end customer relationship management—in order to improve organizational efficiency and give you a competitive marketplace advantage.

Let’s review some of the practical implications of the merger, including how Microsoft Dynamics ERP customers will likely benefit from the interoperability of these two industry icons.
