Have an Old Version of Dynamics GP? Buy Users Before Price Increase July 2014

Many CAL clients are still using older versions of Dynamics GP, prior to Dynamics GP 2013. In order to “encourage” you to upgrade to Dynamics GP 2013 with the new Perpetual Licensing model, Microsoft has announced a price increase for additional users. If you think that you will need additional users in the next 6 to 12 months, there is no better time to buy those users before the prices go up on July 1, 2014.
