Is migrating from Dynamics GP to Dynamics 365 Business Central a better option

Is upgrading to Business Central from GP right for you? Know Everything about GP to BC migration and find answers to all your questions at Summit NA, 2021.

Should You Stay with Dynamics GP or upgrade to Dynamics 365 BC? — Summit NA helps you choose what’s best for you.

If you are an existing Dynamics GP user or a new Dynamics 365 enthusiast, you are most likely aware of the numerous benefits and modern productivity features that BC offers—in addition to eliminating costly software upgrades. Many businesses have taken advantage of this proven alternative—Microsoft’s cloud SaaS platform, Dynamics 365 Business Central.

However, before you dive into an upgrade there are several considerations:

Is Dynamics 365 Business Central right for your business?

How would it benefit your users?

Is it worth your time, cost, and effort?

And finally, how does the migration process work?

Why migrate from Dynamics 365 Great Plains (GP) to Dynamics 365 Business Central (BC)?

Microsoft has shifted its focus to strengthening its cloud-first solution: Dynamics 365, which is why many Dynamics GP users have already migrated to Dynamics 365 BC. Among the top reasons are advanced features, a modern user experience with a user-friendly platform, integration, and AI capabilities.

A key, perhaps obvious question is, “when is the best time for migration?” It appears that possibilities for short-term upgrades to Dynamics GP are slim and the extended support for GP 2013, 2015, and 2016 will probably not be a viable long-term option. Realistically the industry trend will be an accelerated conversion to Dynamics 365 BC. So the time is now.
