Why should I upgrade my Dynamics GP system to GP 2016?

If your version of Dynamics GP is unsupported by Microsoft, then upgrading your system now is crucial! The Dynamics GP accounting software is essential to managing your business needs. It allows you to maintain accuracy, efficiency and convenience with your business numbers as new versions are released.

Being on the most current version is important for many reasons. For starters, upgrading typically increases performance, fixes previously identified bugs or issues, and gives you access to Microsoft support.

The GP system’s latest version is GP 2016 R2.  In the new release, Microsoft has enhanced the web client. Dynamics GP will now work using any browser (Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Edge). Microsoft also added support for all mobile devices (Windows, Ipad and Android).

Other features that have been enhanced since Dynamics GP 2013 or 2015 include the following:


In Dynamics GP 2016 R2, users can deploy Management Reporter for https access. Users can now access reports over secure https communication versus opening Management Reporter directly and generating reports to report viewer.


After users import budgets, an exception report generates, displaying accounts that are not set up in Dynamics GP. Users will then know what accounts they still need to set up in GP.


Users can now create a new SmartList from a favorite using SmartList Designer. This saves users a lot of time because they don’t have to customize SmartList each time.

Excel Export

SmartList and SmartList Designer exported to excel now export in number format instead of text. Prior to GP 2016, exporting to excel was in text format only. With the new number format, users no longer have to spend time reformatting in excel.

All-in-One View

Users get an all-in-one document view for sales and inventory transactions to view related documents for a single transaction in the same window.


Dynamics GP now allows editing of attached information that flowed from a master record. Users no longer have to go back to the original document to edit and reattach it to a GP record.

BI Reports

GP now allows users to view reports on the home page to get a quick view. This provides users a snap shot of relevant business data important to them.


Users can edit workflow approver terms and conditions. Email notifications can be sent to the new approver for delegation, escalation and other approval. This gives users more control than in previous versions.
