Dynamics GP Is Here to Stay

Make Your Business Decision to Maintain, Upgrade or Move – On Your Own Terms

Earlier this month, Microsoft released a new roadmap extending support for Dynamics GP beyond 2028 on the Modern Lifecycle Policy. This news comes as a relief to those who were concerned about the future of GP and where it stood against newer ERP systems, such as Dynamics 365 Business Central. 

The following graph from Microsoft shows the lifecycle of various versions of Dynamics GP, and can be found here. 

The Modern Lifecycle Policy does require GP customers to stay current by updating Dynamics GP at least once a year. Microsoft will provide three updates each year with a mix of tax and regulatory updates and new capabilities (dates below are examples as provided by Microsoft): 

  • June – tax updates, regulatory updates, hot fixes 
  • October – new capabilities, hotfixes 
  • December – tax updates, regulatory updates, hot fixes 

While Microsoft has been pushing Dynamics GP customers to migrate to the cloud for some time now, specifically to Dynamics 365 Business Central, many companies are not ready to make the move, and may not be for several years. The changes in cost model, product feature set and readiness for their industry are not a fit for everyone, at least not yet. To those organizations that have what they need in Dynamics GP, and the community of ISV solutions that integrate with it, they can now map out their plans to stay, upgrade or migrate on their own terms and timeline. 

Here at KwikTag, we have more than 20 years of experience integrating with Dynamics GP, and we are overjoyed to know that it has a solid future for years to come. Hundreds of our customers feel the same way and have struggled with the apparent pressure to stay or go. While the KwikTag product roadmap includes support for Dynamics 365 Business Central, it continues to feature updates and enhancements for the Dynamics GP market, such as the addition of payment processing automation, which is available for GP customers first. 

KwikTag provides a powerful AP automation solution for Dynamics GP; KwikPayables Accelerate is a cloud-based (SaaS) accounts payable automation solution designed to provide a completely digital AP process from invoice capture to payment processing. KwikPayables Accelerate features the most common invoice indexing and approval processes, including multi-entity management and intelligent data extraction. It is an all-inclusive solution that includes software, services, system updates and ongoing maintenance. Because it is cloud-based, it can be quickly deployed, which reduces overall time to solution and total cost of ownership. 

There has never been a better time to get started with AP automation – the benefits will continue for years to come!
