As the clock ticks on Dynamics GP’s impending departure, many nonprofit and government users cling to the hope of cruising along until Microsoft compels them to migrate to Microsoft Business Central or when they encounter server issues. However, the truth is, there are clear indications calling for an earlier move to spare your business from potential disruptions. If you’re uncertain whether this applies to you, here are five unmistakable signs that it’s time to migrate from Dynamics GP to Microsoft Business Central:
If your business is experiencing significant growth or expansion, Dynamics GP may struggle to handle the increased data volume and transaction complexity as it grows in the next 1–5 years. If this isn’t addressed early enough, it can lead to performance issues, slower processes, and an inability to keep up with expanding demands, hindering your business’s ability to scale effectively. Migrating to Microsoft Business Central provides a more scalable solution with flexible licensing options to accommodate your evolving business needs.
If your organization has a distributed workforce, or you need to access your ERP system from multiple locations, Dynamics GP’s on-premises nature can be limiting and can impact efficiency and responsiveness. Microsoft Business Central, being a cloud-based solution, offers seamless remote accessibility, enabling users to access and work with the system from anywhere, at any time.
If you find yourself dealing with the cumbersome and time-consuming process of integrating various third-party applications and systems with Dynamics GP, you already know this isn’t sustainable. These challenges can lead to data silos, manual data entry, and limited visibility across your business processes. Microsoft Business Central takes integration to the next level with its native capabilities for smooth integrations. Through connectors, APIs, and the Power Platform, you can effortlessly connect with other Microsoft and third-party applications, creating a unified and connected ecosystem that empowers seamless workflows.
If you feel like you’re falling behind your competitors, struggling to uncover hidden patterns, trends, and opportunities within your data, or that you’re not optimizing your time or resources, Dynamics GP’s lack of advanced analytics and AI capabilities will continue to limit you from achieving your business’s potential. With Dynamics 365 Business Central and Tangicloud Fundamentals, you can leverage embedded Power BI for data visualization and analysis, as well as the AI-powered CoPilot feature for intelligent suggestions, anomaly detection, and predictive analytics, enhancing decision-making and operational efficiency.
If you’re experiencing a case of FOMO (fear of missing out) every time Microsoft unveils a new Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central feature or encountering limitations with Dynamics GP, with unsupported add-ons, it’s essential to consider the future. As GP’s mainstream support tails off, you’ll face the absence of critical security updates, bug fixes, and access to new features, leaving your system vulnerable and hindering its long-term sustainability. Migrating to Microsoft Business Central, along with Tangicloud Fundamentals, guarantees ongoing support, maintenance, and access to the latest advancements, safeguarding your business’s ERP environment for years to come.
With the addition of Tangicloud Fundamentals, a nonprofit accounting software industry solution that integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Business Central, nonprofits can benefit from features tailored specifically to their financial and reporting needs.
