A Better Way to Show Discounts on Quotes in Microsoft Dynamics GP and SL

August 24 2011

We have a client here in the Twin Cities, MN, USA that resells door hardware, mostly to schools.  Before using Microsoft Dynamics GP, this client was going through challenging accounting gymnastics each time they did a quote. The process was painful for a variety of reasons, which I'll discuss below, but the solution was quite simple - taking control of report display with some basic conditional logic.  And the results were tangible - better margins and fewer accounting headaches.

Jack’s career began doing application and sales support for Solomon Software- the firm that created Dynamics SL. Jack was promoted to regional manager when the firm moved him from Philadelphia to Chicago in 1988.

Jack believes that finding the right software is only a piece of the challenge in implementing software. Without the right people to implement it, you only have half a solution. You need the right business analyst to flush out a company’s requirements and you need the right consultants to make the software align with those needs.

Jack has an honors degree in accounting from Penn State (1984) and passed the CPA exam while at Boyer & Associates.
