Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 and 2016 R2 will cease support on July 13, 2021. Therefore, if you haven't already, now is the time to update your Dynamics GP solution. It is advised that you update your system every two versions at the absolute least. While many businesses prefer to put off system migration, there are various advantages to keeping your Dynamics GP solution up to date.
What are the benefits of keeping your Dynamics GP solution up to date? Here are five advantages:
The most significant advantage is getting access to new features. They will assist you in completing jobs faster, working more strategically, and optimizing your user experience. You will then be able to fully utilize the capabilities of your business management software.
You won't have to work around the constraints of an outdated system any longer. You'll constantly be informed about the most recent tax laws and accounting best practices. You won't have to worry about compatibility difficulties, and you won't have to rely on customizations and developments that slow down your system.
Improved user experience
Your users will benefit from a better experience during their regular use of the system if they have access to the most recent interface accessible. You'll also find it easier to hire and train new personnel. This will also boost the production and efficiency of your workforce.
You'll save money on migration because it's easy to upgrade your system on a regular basis rather than skipping two or three versions of GP all at once. Organizations may choose to postpone system migration in order to save money, but the longer you wait, the longer—and more expensive—the migration process becomes.
Migrations should be done on a regular basis to keep your systems secure. Even though security patches are always included with extended support, you will run less chances of a security breach or software corruption if you use an up-to-date version of GP. Now, more than ever, this is critical!
These are the primary advantages of keeping your Dynamics GP solution current. Migrating an older version of your system requires extra steps and time to complete all of the required validations. By moving your system on a regular basis, you can save money on long-term maintenance while also gaining access to new features and increased security.
