ERP Education

There are a number of resources available to MS Dynamics GP users to enhance your knowledge of your ERP product. Here is a partial list and directions to the resources.


Accolade's Books

Of course, we would not start a list like this without mentioning our books. Designed to help end users conduct business more efficiently, our books cover a variety of topics on several different software products. Click on Books in Our Library above to see what we have available.


And NEVER Overlook Your Dynamics Partner!

Your Dynamics Partner should always be your primary provider of support. They have been to your site, they know your business and how it works, and they know how you want to use your Dynamics products. Your Dynamics GP partner should always be your first level of support (after our books, of course Smile).

Conference Room Pilot-- Now Shipping!

This book is for ALL ERPS: NAV, GP, SL, AX, CRM, SAGE, Macola, etc.

This book is designed for firms that are going through any one of three different stages in their software upgrades: a full new ERP implementation, a major revision upgrade, and/or the installation of major new features or third party packages. All of these events, some in more detail than others, need testing before taking the firm live on the new configuration.

Conference Room Pilot consists of two parts: instructions on completing a Conference Room Pilot and forms to assist the team in defining the test and collecting the data. And, yes, the instructions assume a complete and detailed testing process.
