Since I started The Resource Group in 1988, I have seen four major changes in enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, which has caused clients to change their solutions.
Read The Resource Group blog to learn about Microsoft Dynamics GP ERP software and Intacct cloud accounting software
Having been a Microsoft Dynamics GP partner for 30 years, we understand why some nonprofits think of GP as "Great Pains." GP was very useful for a long time but lacks cloud access, fund accounting, grant management, dimensions, and other things that can shave weeks off of monthly closings and preclude the need to add finance staff, even as transactional volumes increase.
Is it time to transition your organization's accounting software? It's challenging to navigate today's dynamic environment with technology that was designed pre-internet. With increased oversight, competition for funding, and expanding compliance requirements, your organization should be leveraging the modern technology available today. Do you find your organization struggling with lack of flexibility, real time visibility, easy reporting, and automation of key processes? Would you like to enjoy easy integration between your solutions, providing instant visibility to key metrics, outcomes and performance?
The technology revolution has made these types of functionality the norm rather than the exception. It is critical to work with an easy-to-use system that supports an evolving environment. To maximize your Return on Mission, you'll need a modern, best-in-class cloud accounting solution: Sage Intacct.

In 2018, The Resource Group is celebrating its 30th anniversary as a company! What can our journey of the past 30 years teach your business?

A few years ago, one of our clients came to us with a challenge. The client was using Microsoft Dynamics GP ERP software, and needed to send payment files to Wells Fargo's Payment Manager.
While Payment Manager is a popular service that allows clients to send large batches of AP files to Wells Fargo for payment processing, the system has a complicated file format that makes it difficult to get the data out of GP into a format that can be uploaded to the Wells Fargo website.
When our consultant tried to make it work with some out-of-the-box software, it turned out to be too big a task.
It was passed to our development team, who, we are proud to say, has a pretty rare mix of programming knowledge. The result was AP Connect – a cost-effective, easy-to-use solution built directly into Microsoft Dynamics GP, so no external applications or integrations are required.
Since 1988, The Resource Group has added value to a wide variety of businesses with the Microsoft Dynamics GP ERP solution so they can better manage their accounting and understand their financials.
Now, we're now adding value to Dynamics GP itself.
Because we have a talented team of software developers with deep knowledge of Dynamics GP, we also understand what it does well and where it could be improved. Additionally, with so many clients over the years, we've discovered through their business needs ways to improve Dynamics GP even more through our add-on solutions. Read about our six add-on tools, which enhance your Dynamics GP solution.
