Microsoft Dynamics Integration
When the workflow for an invoice has been completed in SharePoint, the transaction in integrated with either Microsoft Dynamics GP (formerly Great Plains) or Dynamics NAV (formerly Navision) via web services and/or eConnect in real-time. If Dynamics GP is being used, either an invoice match or payable management invoice is created, depending on if the purchasing module is being used. For Dynamics NAV, a purchase invoice is created with items linked to a purchase order, if being used, otherwise the items are added independently to the purchase invoice.

DynamicPoint is very knowledgeable, quick turnaround times and great customer service. What they deliver is always what I asked for or more. One of my most favorite vendors!
Great expertise with both Microsoft Dynamics GP and SharePoint. DynamicPoint was very responsive and professional throughout the engagement. The product was exactly what was desired, and was bug free upon delivery. I highly recommend working with DynamicPoint for any GP customization or SharePoint development.
