Asiatech Software Inc

We are specialized in Microsoft Dynamics GP Implementation & Customization

Entry level and advanced solutions for the mid-market

Built on Microsoft technologies and designed to work now and into the future, Microsoft Dynamics GP (formerly Great Plains) protects business value and provides an integrated environment that can be extended across systems and platforms. It is an international product with over 160,000 installs, 34 language versions and is supported world-wide.

There are two versions of Dynamics GP, Business Essentials and Advanced Management. Both use the same source code and one can upgrade from one to another by simply changing the registration keys.

Business Essentials is for organizations that require core ERP functionality. It comes with a standard set of modules bundled as a ‘package’ to allow financial management and basic distribution. Additional modules may be purchased to extend the Business Essentials capability. This version is based on entry level pricing.

Advanced Management is for organizations that require extensive ERP functionality. Advanced Management builds upon Business Essentials with a more comprehensive set of modules including time recording, project accounting/job costing, field service management, manufacturing and advanced analytics. Additional modules may be purchased to further extend Advanced Management capability.

Scalable solutions – SQL Server 2000 , 2005 & 2008

Powered by Microsoft SQL Server 2000 & 2005, Microsoft Dynamics GP is scalable from a single desktop PC to a cluster of multi-processor servers, therefore easily accommodating a mix of platform requirements. Microsoft SQL Server can handle virtually unlimited storage and up to thousands of concurrent users, but at the same time is easy to implement and can be tailored quickly to meet specific needs. As part of the Microsoft.NET suite of applications, Microsoft SQL Server takes full advantage of XML for moving data across platforms.

Highly Tailor able

With access to the module called Modifier with embedded Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications, users can work with the most widely used customisation environment in the software industry to quickly adapt Microsoft Dynamics GP information views, add or modify business logic, customise forms and reports, or extend integrations with Microsoft Office applications. If advanced tailoring is required Asiatech Software can carry this out to provide a solution that does not touch the source code, but that provides a specific solution to our clients’ requirements.

Functionality includes:

  • Financial Management
  • Field Service Management
  • Distribution/Supply Chain
  • Human Resource Management
  • Manufacturing
  • Web Portal
  • Project Accounting / time recording / job costing
  • Customisation Tools
  • Report writing & Management information

One of the key reasons for companies changing systems is to enable the production of much better management information, whether this is by reports or on-screen enquiries. With Dynamics GP there are a number of excellent report writing options and tailorable on-screen enquiries available.

For example, you could have users in Melbourne , Sydney , Auckland , New York , London , France and Madrid . Each user accesses the system and operates using their defined language, currency and tax regime.

Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains) Integration

Integration or duplication? If your systems are not integrated then your staff will repeat work twice by re-keying information into different systems. Not only does this dramatically increase your costs, it also means you will have different and outdated information across your systems.

The only way to streamline your systems, reduce duplication and ensure consistency of information throughout your systems is to have automatic online integration between your different systems.

One of Microsoft Dynamics GP many outstanding features is its world leading integration facility. Microsoft Dynamics GP provides outstanding tools and ease of use in safely integrating and linking your systems together. It provides a range of integration tools for online and batch integration.

The integration methods available are:

  • BizTalk
  • Integration Manager
  • eConnect
  • Integration Assistant for Excel
  • Database level integration
  • Data Warehousing
  • Crystal Enterprise and Business Objects
  • Database Level Integration e.g. MS SQL and MS Access

One of the key concerns of integration and software tailoring is to adapt systems to your business needs without introducing problems with compatibility and future upgrades and support. Microsoft’s integration tools prevent this problem from occurring. Different systems exchange information with each other using a clearly defined set of rules. It is then easy to upgrade each system (Microsoft Dynamics GP, CRM system, Operating System, etc.) without the upgrade causing any adverse affect or compatibility problems with linked systems.

For more detailed information about Microsoft’s integration methods, please contact Asiatech Software.
