Dynamics Profile: Supporting a community, from GPA for DOS to GP 2013
When MVP Richard Wheeler first became acquainted with Microsoft Dynamics GP, it wasn't Dynamics GP at all - it was GPA (Great Plains Accounting) for DOS.
It all started back in the eighties, said Wheeler, President at Revered Business Solutions Inc. (RBS), a company he founded in 1983.
"I was, and still am, a programmer," he said. "I started out writing code for GPA for DOS because there a few resellers around the area (Sarasota Springs, New York) but they couldn't do any coding. It didn't take very long before I saw the nice little market niche that was there. So I became a GPA for DOS reseller and then GPA became Dynamics and the rest is history. We've just followed the evolution of Dynamics GP - I still have my Dynamics 1.0 floppies - to where it is now."
