While enterprise software like Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains) offers invaluable tools for managing financials, HR, and operations, many businesses find themselves overpaying for the support and maintenance of this powerful solution. Let’s explore why businesses are overpaying for Microsoft Dynamics GP support and how Opal Business Solutions can help optimize costs and streamline operations.
The Pitfalls of Overpaying for Support
Paying for Unused Services:
One of the most common reasons businesses overpay for Microsoft Dynamics GP support is that they often purchase support packages with services they don’t fully utilize. These packages can include features and support levels that go beyond what the business actually needs, leading to unnecessary expenses. “Premium” support can drain finances, often accounting for up to 20% of annual Dynamics license fees.
Rising Maintenance Costs:
Over time, the cost of maintaining and supporting legacy ERP systems like Microsoft Dynamics GP can increase significantly. Without proper guidance and optimization, businesses can find themselves locked into expensive contracts that no longer align with their current needs.
Lack of Customization:
Every business has unique requirements, and its ERP system should be tailored to meet those needs. Overpaying for support often means missing out on the opportunity to customize Microsoft Dynamics GP to better suit the specific workflows and processes of your organization.
