More than 40,000 companies, ranging from small business to multi-national corporations, trust their business to Microsoft Dynamics GP.
Announced at the GlassBuild America Expo, the new solution embeds the General Ledger, Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable and Bank Reconciliation components of Microsoft Dynamics GP directly into the market-leading GTS GlasPac®LX software. This combined solution is unique to the glass industry and is the first step in an evolutionary approach to business management software created specifically for glass industry needs.
More than simple compatibility, embedding the two systems means users do not have to toggle between separate applications or import/export data. Instead they are able to seamlessly access and use GlasPacLX files and data from within the familiar Microsoft® Office interface. The result is one-step, streamlined access across key business and data management tools, for greater productivity, flexibility and ability to grow a business.
Part of the GTS evolution
GTS is well-known for its flexible and customizable front office and data integration tools, such as GlasPacLX and BREAKAWAY® business management solutions. GTS leads the industry in innovation, services and best-in-class products created from the input of its 5,000 users throughout North America.
This new solution combining Microsoft Dynamics GP and GTS technologies continues the GTS commitment to serve the changing needs of the glass business, and to provide innovative technology solutions that are easy and productive to use.
“We’ve built a reputation for innovative glass business software for two reasons -- our superior technology and listening to customers and the changing market trends they need to navigate,” said Mike Jones, president of GTS. “By combining Microsoft’s accounting solutions with our market-leading GlasPac software, we’ve just eliminated another barrier to empowering yet simplifying glass business operations.”
“Microsoft Dynamics GP is a scalable business management solution that provides a solid foundation for managing business financial data and processes,” said Jon Pratt, senior director of Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics SL and Microsoft Dynamics Retail Management System. “GTS, with its strong vertical market expertise in the glass business, has created a unique solution that leverages all of the strengths of Microsoft Dynamics GP while continuing to provide all the benefits of the core GTS software.”
