The Experience Continues at GPUG Summit

GPUG Summit Day 2 started with as much excitement as Day 1.  Opening session was divided by business lines.  The GPUG group was awesome and people were eager to hear What’s Next for Dynamics GP.  It is wonderful to note that service packs will now include new functionality and not just fixes.  Every service pack will be like opening Christmas presents! – With surprises galore!

The future of GP 2014 H1, will move to a Windows 8 app.  This means that any cell phone or tablet that runs Windows 8 will be able to access GP from anywhere, using this new app!

GP 2015 is expected to provide (in addition to many other features) the opportunity for us to build our own apps!  This means you design it, you deploy it, and people outside of GP can use it!
