Congratulations on a job well done to Christine Huebert of PrideStaff for her participation in the Panel Discussion: A Customer Perspective- Implementing MS Dynamics.

May brings lots of changes – the release of GP 2010 and the release of the new CAL website. This issue is full of GP2010 resources and be sure to visit the new Client Center tab on our new site – including support, training, upgrade resources, event and promos specifically for our clients. The Client Center also includes a GP2010 section to inform you of highlights of the new version, pricing and licensing changes, FRx to Management Reporter news and events related to the release. And don’t miss the most talked about new feature of our site – the “life saver” icon for online support. Can you find it?

What’s New in GP 2010

I am finally coming up for a quick breath of air after Convergence, Atlanta “What’s New in GP2010” event for existing customers, and my special presentation at “Decisions 2010” the MS Dynamics World virtual conference (check out more information) Everyone I talk to has been really busy lately, but I hope you can take the time to enjoy the new flowers and spend some time outside as it warms up. If you did not get a chance to attend our “What’s New in GP2010” event. We are planning to go more in depth into these exciting changes at our CAL Connect2010 event in September. Last year was great…but this year is going to be bigger and better!! I am working on my sessions and if you have any ideas for topics, please send me a quick email: I wish I could write more, but I have to get back to work!! See you in September!

Curious about new features in Microsoft Dynamics GP2010?

We found an exciting way to explore some of the new features, including an Email Capabilities feature, in a series of posts called “Feature of the Day” taken from the Official Blog Microsoft Dynamics GP..

The new Email feature allows users to quickly and easily e-mail single documents, batches of documents, and/or multiple documents from a list within the system. The user can select which documents they would like to send and also select which customers/vendors should receive their documents in e-mail.
