Unfortunately, in today’s business climate known for its get-it-done-now philosophy investing in new software is one thing…but implementation represents an endeavor fraught with many challenges.
In particular, the Dynamics GP implementation can go sideways and backwards if decision-makers do not seek help from a proven Microsoft partner like Technology Management Concepts (TMC).
