Harwinton, CT – October 20, 2008 — CAL Business Solutions, a Connecticut-based Microsoft Gold Certified partner with expertise in accounting software solutions, today announced a significant investment in the Microsoft Source Code Authorization Program to become Source Code Authorized for Microsoft Dynamics GP financial management software. Of the approximately 2500 Microsoft Dynamics GP partners worldwide, only 3% are enrolled in the Source Code Program for Microsoft Dynamics GP.

“In order to customize complex financial software systems, companies typically must pay a development partner to reinvent the wheel,” said George Mackiewicz, CAL Business Solutions president. “If the development partner has access to the source code of the original program, then they can quickly and cleanly do custom development, and ultimately save their customers time and money.”

The Source Code Program will provide source code access for these Products from the core modules of Microsoft Dynamics GP; Field Service, Financials, Payroll, Human Resources, Fixed Assets, Smartlist, DynUtils, Revenue Expense Deferrals, Manufacturing, GP SQL Stored Procedures and Project Accounting, as well as tax updates and service packs. According to Microsoft, the Source Code Program has a primary goal of providing Partners with access to some of the source code for certain Microsoft products for viewing purposes.

According to Microsoft documentation the program is focused on maintaining low Total Cost of Ownership for our customers by protecting data integrity and allowing for seamless upgrades to newer versions of Microsoft Dynamics GP and Microsoft Small Business Financials.

“We believe that investment in the source code we will now be able to ‘open the hood’ of Microsoft Dynamics GP so that we can create even more complex custom solutions and reduce development costs for our clients,” added George Mackiewicz.
