BCS is Committed to Microsoft Dynamics GP AND Dynamics 365 – a message from the President

Messaging from Microsoft and other partners may not always be clear, but we know that Microsoft Dynamics GP AND Dynamics 365 are both great solutions for businesses, and they will both be available for many years to come.

BCS is very bullish on Dynamics GP, as we have been since our inception in 2000.  Dynamics GP is a very robust ERP solution for mid-market clients leveraging Microsoft SQL Server, which can be hosted in the cloud or on-premise.  It’s a fantastic solution for companies that need to create integrations with other operational systems, enabling more direct control of the integrations and data management.  The reporting and extensibility options for Dynamics GP have grown exponentially in the last several years with Power BI, Power Apps, Flow and Jet Reports.  Investments in Dynamics GP are rock solid, and BCS is committed to helping clients implement, extend and support Dynamics GP for the next 18+ years of our business!

A couple years ago, BCS participated in an early adopter partner program prior to the release of Dynamics 365 for Financials in November 2016, which is based on Dynamics NAV.  We were impressed with how easy it was to help new clients start using the Microsoft hosted solution, and we helped many new clients deploy this solution.  The Dynamics 365 Financials solution was initially limited in functionality, but Microsoft delivered on its promise to consistently add new features, and is now releasing the latest and greatest full functionality release (comparable to Dynamics NAV), and is rebranding the solution as Dynamics 365 Business Central.  We’re very excited to share our mid-market ERP expertise and provide these two great solutions for mid-market clients to consider and use to help grow their businesses.

While Business Central is an important part of Dynamics 365, there are many other capabilities within Dynamics 365 including, but not limited to, Customer Engagement (formerly Dynamics CRM), Sales, Service, Marketing, Field Service and Project Services.  All companies can leverage the benefits of Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement to automate and more effectively manage their sales and marketing efforts, as well as manage their field service teams and projects.  BCS has deployed and integrated Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement with Dynamics GP and Business Central for dozens of clients, and it’s a great way to extend your investment in Dynamics GP or Business Central.

Last but not least, Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations (formerly AX) is a very powerful ERP solution for large multi-national organizations to manage all aspects of accounting, distribution and operations.  BCS has helped clients deploy and support this solution for over 5 years, and we have a skilled team of professionals to help integrate this solution with Customer Engagement also.

In our 18 years of business, BCS continues to only represent Microsoft business solutions because of the breadth of the product offerings, the depth of the underlying technology, and the commitment from Microsoft to their products and partners.

BCS remains fully committed to Dynamics GP AND Dynamics 365!
