Full Answer

Microsoft Dynamics GP is an accounting software package for businesses. It offers financial, inventory management and operations management features for small and large businesses. Dynamics GP can also generate reports and real-time analytics to track assets and performance.

Its financial management options include cash and asset management, banking features, sales tracking and payroll functions. Inventory options include production tracking, order processing and vendor and inventory management systems. Dynamics GP can also track service contracts and field resources with its sales system.

Microsoft does not sell Dynamics GP directly to customers. Third-party consultants sell the software. These local partners meet with businesses to tailor solutions and quote prices based on the specific company's needs. The price quote depends on which features are needed, the number of users who access the system, how much support is necessary, and how the software is deployed. Deployment options include hosting the software locally, using a private cloud server, hosting with the local Microsoft partner, or hosting on Microsoft's first-party Azure servers.
