Last Modified 4/28/2011

Posted 4/28/2011

The Dynamics GP team is proud to announce the availability of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2! Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2 builds on the great foundation we shipped just under one year ago in the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 release with key themes of Enhancing Insight, Making It Easier and Extending Connections.

We’d like to thank everyone who took part in this process; from Development to Operations to CSS to Marketing to Sales. They’ve all spent a tremendous amount of time and effort taking this vision and making it a reality for our Customers and Partners.

Overall Highlights:
• Shipping on time and less than one year from Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 RTM*
• Over 50 feature adds for R2
• Industry leading Business Intelligence with enhancements to SQL Reports, Word Templates, and Email
• Release of Business Analyzer that adds value to Light Users and extends the reach of ERP to everyone in the organization
– Actually, our development team was so excited about this release they got it out sooner than planned and couldn’t help but “leak” the release for download before we could catch up
