Dynamics GP 2010 was wonderfully successful in a number of areas.  For those who want to integrate GP in a more seamless and real time way, the additional web services offered out-of-the-box were wonderful.

Our clients also love the ability to suppress inactive records such as vendors, customers and inventory items that are no longer desired in look up windows.

We believe R2 will be even better.  We expect R2 to be available in June of this year 2011.

Following the successful launch of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010, Microsoft Corp.
