If you live in Perth and work in the tech industry (or don’t work in the tech industry and want something to do), please come and join some of the Perth based Microsoft MVPs for a free community event on Saturday 25th May 2019.
This all day event (8;30 am to 5:00 pm) will be held at the Civic Administration Centre, City of Canning in Cannington, and will be an exciting day with seven presentations and a Q&A panel session to finish.
You might have seen some postings on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn mentioning that I have been working hard on the next release of GP Power Tools. Well, all the major features planned for Build 27 have been completed.
All that is left to do is beta testing, documentation and a couple of minor features and then it can be released to the Microsoft Dynamics GP community in time for the upcoming conference season for 2019.
As mentioned in my previous post I have been working hard for the last few months on the development of the next build of GP Power Tools.
Build 26 of GP Power Tools is already at release candidate stage and I am just working on getting the documentation for the User Guide manual updated and tweaking any issues found during beta testing.
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.
Last week, I was having an email conversation with a partner friend in New Zealand and he mentioned that he had recently gained a number of existing Microsoft Dynamics GP customers from larger partners (VARs) who have decided to de-emphasize their Dynamics GP line of business.
My friend’s comment was this was short sighted and that it was sad when the fight for a quick dollar overrides the value of a long term relationship. His comments prompted me to write this “opinion” article.
As mentioned at the beginning of May, Winthrop Development Consultants will distribute all of its products directly from 01-Jul-2018. Well, the day has arrived and the distribution arrangement with Mekorma has now ended.
We have been working hard to make the transition as painless as possible for both Partners and Customers and the article below should hopefully answer any questions you might still have.
Winthrop Development Consultants is pleased to announce that updated builds for GP Power Tools, Batch Posting Service Toolkit and the free Visual Studio Integration Toolkit are now available.
Please note that these builds are required to ensure that the products remain registered after 01-Jul-2018. All customers will need to update their systems before their current subscriptions expire to avoid interruptions to their registrations. Install over the top of the existing builds, no need to uninstall.
