GP Upgrades

It’s important to stay up to date on the version of Dynamics GP you run. CSSI will help you to stay abreast of the changes. When it comes to GP upgrades, CSSI will work with you to ensure a smooth and successful project.

Staying on a current version makes upgrading easier.  If you fall behind several versions, your next upgrade may require several jumps to get to the latest version.

If you’re on an unsupported version, you no longer get the following:

  • Tax table and year-end updates
  • Access to Microsoft technical support
  • Support from 3rd party vendors
  • Compatibility with new servers and operating systems
