Microsoft Dynamics GP – Cloud or on Premise

Microsoft Dynamics GP offers multiple deployment and pricing options, including both on-premises solutions and cloud-based software-as-a service (SaaS) platforms provided by our partners.  Whatever your preference, you have the flexibility to choose the option that’s right for you.

On-premises deployment
With on-premises deployment, Microsoft Dynamics GP software is hosted at your own location on your own servers or at a location of your choice.  You can work with one of our partners to set up the necessary hardware and software, using new systems or any available systems you already own.  Either partners or your in-house staff can then maintain and develop your solutions.

Leverage existing investments
Reduce costs by using the hardware and software you already own.

Easily connect with legacy systems
While most cloud solutions can connect with existing equipment, on-premises solutions can always do so.

Guarantee predictable performance
On-premises solutions are not subject to fluctuations in performance or availability due to the Internet (although on-premises solutions are not necessarily faster than hosted ones).

Support compliance requirements
Ensure compliance with security and other policies that require on-premises solutions.

You can make implementing your Microsoft Dynamics solution easier.  By working with a Microsoft partner, like Accountnet, who uses a proven methodolgy – implementation processes and tools – you can achieve a successful implementation that is on-time, on-budget and on-spec.

Microsoft Dynamics GP solutions and the cloud
In addition to a wide range of partner-hosted solutions, the next major versions of Microsoft Dynamics GP solutions will be available for cloud-based deployment using the Windows Azure platform.

Partner-hosted deployment
Many Microsoft partners offer cloud-based hosting for Microsoft Dynamics GP solutions and can serve your organization in a wide spectrum of roles.  You can task them with providing hardware and software that is accessed and controlled by your in-house IT department.  Or you can engage a partner as an outsourced IT department that runs, maintains, and develops your systems for you.

Hosted ERP solutions allow you to:

Minimize your initial investment
Lower your startup costs by avoiding upfront hardware and software purchases.

Get up and running quickly
Hosted ERP solutions generally offer faster deployment options.

Manage your cash flow better
Support your business as it grows with low and predictable costs that scale with actual use of your solution.  You can also purchase a traditional perpetual license and have it hosted by a partner.

Scale the solution as needed
Many partner-hosted ERP solutions offer scalability that fits to your organizations exact needs and can be adjusted as your needs change.

Maximize internal IT resources
Free up your internal IT staff for tasks that provide more value to your organization.
