What the end of Business Portal means for Microsoft Dynamics GP in 2015
Microsoft surprised some in the Dynamics GP community in 2013 by announcing that Business Portal for Dynamics GP would be discontinued beginning with GP 2015. What does this mean for GP customers?
The Role Business Portal Played
Business Portal was initially designed as a web-based system to enter and disseminate information. Through a web browser, users enter payroll information, timesheets, manage documents and export reports. Depending on the user's permissions, certain types of data were accessible through certain roles provided, giving companies the ability to limit and customize the information for outside vendors, internal employees and more.
