The goal of this blog is to explore Microsoft technologies around ERP and help people see the value and potential of the Microsoft Dynamics platform.
As part of the Dynamics ERP Road to Repeatability (R2R) program we have built a tool to help your teams demo Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2 easily and smoothly.
Have you ever been in a demo and forget exactly what pallet/menu contains that form that you are looking for? Well I know have.. many times.
It got me thinking, the shortcuts bar in Dynamics GP could come in really handy as an easy reminder/pointer of where the form is located and also avoid that “well… it used to be here..hmmmm where is that thing…”. And make it as easy as follow the bouncing ball for demos.
Also, as often times each demo is specific to the needs of the customer, wouldn’t it be great to build a library of demo flows that you could just import from something like a spreadsheet and instantly be ready with a script or scripts to help you get started for that custom demo.
That is the goal of this tool.
To enable you to build a few standard demo flows that enable easy and smooth navigation of the steps of the demo and share them out with others on your team.
It’s also a great way for the prospect to see that you have do a plan for your demo and have mapped something special to their needs. Here is a short demo of the this tool. http://youtu.be/V_lbyytXq0c
This is a really simple way to structure your demos and allow you to focus on your customer’s needs rather than hunting for forms in Dynamics GP 2010 R2 and not giving the smoothest most professional demo.
Here is a picture that shows a simple script for “Why Microsoft, Day in the Life & scenarios like Order to Cash”.
We plan to include this tool on the new Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2 (64 bit HyperV) image that is coming out really soon.
Here is a link to the download location for this tool. This tool uses a simple SQL Integration Services (SIS) Script to export and import steps into the Dynamics GP 2010 client.
