Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2 Ahead of Schedule and Ahead of the Curve

Share Article

Originally scheduled for a May 1st release, the Release 2 version of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 made its appearance ahead of schedule on April 27th and was heralded with much fanfare. While it’s considered a minor release, nestled in between GP 2010 and GP 2011, the facts belie that nomenclature. The “minor release” contains more than 50 feature additions and enhancements to SQL Reports, Word Templates, and email. The feature creating the must buzz is the Business Analyzer, a tool developed to help executives make informed business decisions by viewing dynamic financial and operational reports from a desktop or from within GP.
