PCNet Inc. has trusted Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains) since 2002 to manage their technology and service business. Although they were happy with the platform, extensive customizations made to the source code made it difficult to upgrade to the current version. So this forward thinking technology company felt stuck on their own outdated systems.

In 2010 CAL Business Solutions presented SalesPad as an add on to Dynamics GP for the distribution industry.  This solution allowed PCNet to upgrade to the latest version of Microsoft Dynamics GP then easily personalize the SalesPad system to fit their needs without making customization to Dynamics GP.  PCNet uses Microsoft Dynamics GP and Salespad to manage inventory, sales order fulfillment, customer service and financial functions.

In a recent interview Erik Soto, Vice President General Manager at PCNet Inc. talked about the benefits of using Microsoft Dynamics GP with SalesPad. Among the benefits he mentioned were: 

  •          Data is Easier to Manage
  •          Easiest Sales Document Management Solution
  •          Improved Quoting Time by Over 50%
  •          Able to Easily Customize Based On Our Business Processes
  •          Seamless Integration Between Dynamics GP and SalesPad
  •          Dynamics GP is a Rock Solid Accounting Application
  •         The Knowledge The CAL Team Brought To The Table

Now PCNet is on the latest version of Dynamics GP with all the functionality they need. And future upgrades can be done with no hesitation.
