Dynamics GP 2013 end of mainstream support is just around the corner on April 10, 2018. If you are still running this version of the popular ERP software, there are several reasons you need to be aware of the date and prepare accordingly.


What Dynamics GP 2013 End of Mainstream Support Means to You

  1. You lose access to tax table and Year-End updates for 2018 and beyond.
  2. You will not be eligible for no charge incident support from Microsoft.
  3. You will stop receiving non-security related hot fixes.
  4. You will no longer be able to submit design changes feature requests or warranty claims.

We know that you depend on your Dynamics GP software for the continued success of your business. That’s why we wanted to spread the word about this important date. We don’t want to see any Dynamics GP users lose access to software features that are only available under mainstream support.


What to Do Next?

The simplest answer is to upgrade to a more modern version of Dynamics GP before April 10, 2018. And, the good news is, there’s still plenty of time to do that.

Now, if you’re like a lot of the businesses we work with, upgrading your Dynamics GP software is not near the top of your list of fun things to do. You might even compare it with going to the dentist, unpleasant, but necessary.

What if I told you it didn’t have to be this way? Like many of our GP clients, you’re probably skeptical. But it’s true. To avoid future GP upgrade headaches, all you need to do is switch from an on-premise installation of Dynamics GP to a hosted one.
