Microsoft Dynamics GP Partner Chicago: Great Plains Customizations

If you are deploying Microsoft Dynamics GP, formerly known as Great Plains Dynamics, Microsoft Great Plains (and their predecessor Great Plains Accounting for DOS, Windows and Macintosh), we would like to review Great Plains customization support options in Chicago, Northern Illinois, North Western Indiana, Southern Wisconsin. Special emphasis on Dynamics GP software development, integration, custom programming and modifications.

If you have legacy version of Great Plains Dynamics or Great Plains Accounting, your options may differ, but we still should be positioned to help you with legacy Great Plains system recovery, redeployment on new Windows 2003 or 2008 server, including Great Plains Dynamics (and GPA) on Pervasive SQL Server 2000.  For new Dynamics GP customers in Chicagoland metro area we already described Microsoft Dynamics GP 11.0 and 10.0 licensing schemas and pricing policies, feel free to give us a call.  If your Dynamics GP implementation was screwed up by local Dynamics GP VAR, feel free to ask for second opinion and likely to preserve investment into GP software licenses:
1. Dynamics GP Customization Tools.  Historically, and still now in 2010, the customization tool of choice is Dynamics GP Dexterity.  Dex was architectured in earlier 1990th as the Shell coded in C programming language.  C was expected to outlive competing DB and Operating System platforms, such as Oracle, DBII, Microsoft Windows, Unix, Solaris.  Now we know that those old good days concerns are no longer actual and we are living through different paradigms (Internet, Thin Clients, Web Clients).  Whatever is the history, Great Plains Dexterity is very popular in GP customizations, as it allows you to incorporate custom modules directly into Dynamics GP security realm and user interface.  Dexterity programming should be outsourced to Dex developers with at least several years of experience, or better to Dynamics GP Dexterity technology partner, who is in Dexterity Source Code program.  If you are trying to recover and upgrade Dexterity customization, please be sure that you have Dynamics.dic or Extract.dic dictionaries with Dexterity Sanscript codes
2. Dynamics GP eConnect.  This is new paradigm in Microsoft Dynamics GP technology, where Dexterity logic is rewritten in SQL Stored Procedures (encrypted, so you cannot alter them).  Initially eConnect was dedicated to GP ecommerce programmers to open up Great Plains objects for ecommerce integration (Customer, Inventory Item, Sales Invoice, Price List, Address, etc.).  Later on with eConnect success, its methods were expanded to cover most of the Dynamics GP modules: General Ledger, US Payroll, Purchase Order Processing, Bill Of Materials, Project Accounting, Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, Bank Reconciliation.  Please, note that some of the Dynamics GP modules are not covered in eConnect, for example Invoicing module (which was historically budget option to Sales Order Processing).  eConnect also is lacking Batch posting logic, and if you would like to post your GP batches directly from ecommerce web application (Microsoft Visual Studio C# or VB.Net project), you would need to review and deploy Alba Spectrum posting server
3. Dynamics GP Extender - it is Microsoft Dexterity shell, which allows you to modify GP logic without being Dexterity programmer.  Enterprise version of Extender, available from eOne allows you to include Dexterity scripts (Sanscript codes).  Extender innovative idea is really great, however some drawbacks are related to Extender performance, especially for new Dynamics GP versions 11.0 and 10.0
4. Dynamics GP Modifier with VBA.  This technology is a bit outdated, but very efficient.  You can modify Dynamics GP existing screens by placing new fields (editable field, push buttons, etc.) and activating them by associated VBA scripts
