  • 12:30-1:15 Product Demonstration – Dynamic Budgets by Zubin Gidwani

Dynamic Budgets was built by a GP customer who was frustrated that the other solutions were too complicated, costly, and painful to use. It is an alternative to Excel worksheet budgeting and a replacement for Microsoft Forecaster. Modules include detailed payroll, allocations, forecasting, project costing, budget reallocations (for use in PO encumbrance), remaining to spend reporting, and more. Installs in 2hrs, after 5 hours of training you’re ready to go.

    • Quick walkthrough of the GPUG website and highlight GPUG Summit sessions available for those not attending.
