Selling GP Power Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP has always been an interesting affair. If you can get a customer to sit and watch a demo (live or on video from the GPPT Portal), they immediately see the benefits and want the product. However, it is usually the people who work with the product day to day who see the demo and then they find it hard to sell to management.
The problem is that GP Power Tools is not critical to your system, it is not required to perform the accounting tasks to run a business. But, it does enhance the user experience while performing those accounting tasks. It makes using GP simpler and easier and helps avoid data entry issues. And if anything does go wrong, it is there to immediately provide tools to capture screenshots, capture logs and troubleshoot issues.
GP Power Tools helps manage the application level security by providing multi-dimensional views into the security system and reporting facilities not available from core Dynamics GP. It also provides analysis with insights into possible security issues and enhances security with Deny Based Security.
Add to this functionality for scripting (allowing for bug fixes, customisation, advanced debugging, custom RW functions and custom web services) in multiple languages without needing any external tools, as well as functionality for resolving database access and possible upgrade issues, then GP Power Tools becomes invaluable.
To demonstrate the many benefits of GP Power Tools, a presentation was created for GPUG Summit 2018. This seven minute slide deck provides a quick overview of how GP Power Tools can solve your pain points and is now available from the downloads section.
Please download this deck for yourself and to show to all your customers or users.
