Microsoft Dynamics GP

Microsoft Dynamics GP, previously known as Great Plains, is a mid-market enterprise resource planning (ERP) application that is quite popular in North America and Australia. DynamicPoint products have for many years been known in the Dynamics GP market. Our legacy SharePoint on premise based applications were first integrated with Dynamics GP and although we have expanded to include many other systems, we still maintain a large customer base of Dynamics GP users. Our portal, invoice automation (EasyAP365) and employee expense management (EasyEXP365) Office 365 apps all offer out of the box compatibility with Dynamics GP.

We support many versions and achieve our integration utilizing Dynamics GP native web services.  This API (application program interface) provides a robust toolset for Dynamics GP integration that leverage’s the applications business logic and is in accordance with the Microsoft suggested best practices. All of the products have two way integrations such that data can be read as well as written.

EasyAP365 - Invoice Automation

Are you still processing vendor invoices using email? Did you think an enterprise grade AP automation solution was out of your reach? Well look no further. Accounts payable (AP) automation software enables organizations to efficiently process vendor invoices using Optical Character Recognition (OCR), automated workflows, and accounting system integration. DynamicPoint’s EasyAP365 AP Invoice Automation solution is an Office 365 based product that works with Dynamics GP. The solution automates the receipt of invoices from vendors, processing, workflow, and creation of accounts payable or purchasing transactions in Dynamics GP. Functionality is included for both Purchase Order (PO) as well as non-PO invoices.

The Process

Invoice automation generally comes down to the following three major steps:

  1. Receipt of the invoice from the vendor
  2. Workflow for managerial review
  3. Integration with your Accounting / ERP system for posting and payment

For each of these processes, DynamicPoint’s EasyAP365 application uses Office 365 technology to streamline your accounts payable team by eliminating manual work and establishing consistency and auditability.

The Benefit

By leveraging Microsoft’s Power Platform, including SharePoint for document storage, Power Automate for Workflow, and integrated OCR, we provide a robust and flexible solution that is cost effective as it leverages what our customers already own. As we are not building it all from scratch, you get a better product for less cost. Not to mention your team will already be familiar with the interface as they use it already. If you are using Microsoft Teams, you will be happy to hear we are fully integrated with Microsoft Teams, allowing all aspects of the submission, processing, and review / approval to be managed directly from the Teams App.
