Unfortunately, for the small to mid-size business owner who has narrowed his choice of ERP software down to Dynamics GP vs Netsuite final decisions may be based on name familiarity alone.
While Dynamics GP comes from the Redmond Giant’s stable of iconic software development teams, it can also boast it’s alignment with the ubiquitous Microsoft Office platform. NetSuite is not integrated with the latter software but remains a viable option for manufacturers or small distributors looking to replace over-customized ERP systems or legacy accounting systems.
One of the great things about Dynamics GP is its usability: it can be up and running right at that moment of implementation. Even better, the software integrates easily with third-party systems. Moreover, in making that distinction with Dynamics GP vs NetSuite, the former is designed to work with existing systems, like Excel and Outlook, for example.
Cloud capabilities? The answer is “yes and yes.” Both platforms answer to today’s need for cloud-based performance. On the one hand, NetSuite is entirely Web-based, and one of the first such systems to do so. Consequently, the company’s success in offering software with ERP/financials, CRM and eCommerce capabilities for over 24,000 organizations worldwide further burnishes its reputation as a proven business processing tool.
Still, NetSuite can end up requiring more customization to implement the software with existing systems and web services.
Dynamics GP can be deployed in the cloud as well as on-premise, which may provide more opportunities for migrating critical services, or keeping them on the network within the company.
