Microsoft Revs Up Dynamics GP 2010 R2

Following the launch of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010, Microsoft has now announced the upcoming release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2. The next iteration of this ERP and CRM software is aimed at providing midsize customers with contextual business intelligence (BI) capabilities and additional features that make actionable information more accessible.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2 will expand into role-specific information through an improved UI and personalized dashboards. The company is aiming to create information channels where users can benefit from improved approval workflow and electronic signature capabilities, both of which will be designed to help people save time while managing compliance and helping to reduce fraud.

The new product will also feature extended connections through what Microsoft calls "Fact Boxes and Action Shortcuts," which are now connected with Microsoft Lync 2010 instant messaging windows — developments intended to bring information about the people who are chatting and their companies directly to the user.

"We have seen unprecedented momentum for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010, having recently added more new customers in one quarter than any previous quarter in the history of the solution," said Crispin Read, general manager, Microsoft Dynamics ERP product management group.

"Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 is delivering  opportunity for our business by providing the ability to drill down into details from the home page using configurable dashboard metrics," said George Mackiewicz, president, CAL Business Solutions Inc.
