Mainstream Support for GP 2016 Has Ended

Here’s What That Means for Your KwikTag System

Mainstream Support for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 and 2016 R2 ended on 7/13/2021, which means that Microsoft will no longer provide tax and year end updates or add enhancements to that version of GP. Further updates to the GP product will be made to GP 18.3; and the modern lifecycle support for GP extends beyond 2028. While GP 2016 support is being sunset, there are still many years of GP updates on the horizon.

If your business is planning an upgrade to GP 18.3, and is not already on the latest version of KwikTag, an upgrade will be required. The latest release of KwikTag, 9.2, is available and certified for Dynamics GP 18.3. KwikTag 9.1 / 9.1 (SP1) or higher is required for your KwikTag system to be compatible with GP 18.3. Please visit our Support Page to read about the upgrade process for your KwikTag system.

If it’s time to update GP and KwikTag, you might consider a move to the cloud.

With remote work environments continuing post-pandemic, moving to the cloud can provide your business with benefits such as improved visibility and collaboration and anywhere access to your invoices and their audit trail. Moving to KwikTag Cloud also means that software upgrades are included in the annual subscription cost and there are no additional fees for support and maintenance. It is all included in the SaaS licensing.

The combination of these factors significantly reduces your total cost of ownership as well as time to solution in the KwikTag Cloud. You can continue to move toward your digital transformation goals with a flexible, completely cloud-based document management or AP automation platform.

Check out this brief video to learn more about the benefits of cloud-based AP automation.

In addition, with Microsoft announcing that support for GP will continue on the Modern Lifecycle beyond 2028, you can rest assured that both your GP and your KwikTag systems are in it for the long haul. Read more about that here.

And, of course, if your business would prefer to remain on premises, or is not ready to upgrade GP, KwikTag will continue to support our solutions that integrate with GP for the foreseeable future.
