In retail business you typically have dedicated Retail Management System, which supports POS, Barcode and RFID scanning, store purchases and merchandise management. For mid-size retailer you may come to conclusion that RMS doesnt do the whole job for you as it is not designed to be accounting application. This is probably the right conclusion and now it is time to pick Corporate ERP system, which is reasonably simple in its integration with your front end POS and Retail application. In the case of small retailer we recommend you to consider Counterpoint (from Radiant Software), which has preset exports of daily sales (they are exported to General Ledger) and Store Purchasing (go to Accounts Payable). If you are growing and Counterpoint is too simple for your retail business, we recommend you to consider Microsoft RMS. This application has out of the box integration module to GP, plus there are IVS solutions, allowing you integrate RMS with Great Plains Sales Order Processing module (SOP Invoices with Customer deposits). 1. Counterpoint and Great Plains tandem.
This is good option for small retail business, for example deli stores, Asian food, non profit organization, such as national park or forest preserve, Main street retail outlet. There are two options in integrating it to Dynamics GP. 2. MS Retail Management System and GP tandem. 3. Enabling GP SOP Transaction to play POS role. Typically this is seen as a good option for small retail stores: Landscape Supply, Nurseries, Factory Outlets (where you need strong accounting application to run the factory itself). 4. Warehouse Management System with Barcode scanning, RFID. If you are running small store we recommend you to get advantage from your POS and Retail application, such as Counterpoint or Microsoft RMS, where basic WMS functionalities are already automated. For example MS RMS has Store Operations module and even Headquarters (where you control all your stores and have functionality to do nationwide or international distribution to your franchisees). 5. Adding Ecommerce Shopping Cart. Going online and enabling internet sales sounds like natural expansion, but the technology is so diversified, that you need to expose yourself and do self study.
In Dynamics GP you have such option as Business Portal and Order Management module, which should be considered if you are in B2B ecommerce model. consider including eConnect libraries. In the case when you are basing your ecommerce web site in Linux, MySQL database and programming PHP, consider calling GP Web Services (these are in fact abstraction level calling eConnect encrypted SQL Stored Procedures near the core). 6. Electronic Document Interchange or EDI. If you bought franchise, you might be required to place your inventory replenishment orders via EDI channel (typically precisely structured text or XML file with header, lines and ending record). If franchise network is established, EDI application is part of the deal and you should get it. For the rest of us, EDI order placement in Great Plains could be implemented via precise SQL Select statement. 7. Some words to international retailers. First of all please check if Dynamics GP is available and localized in your country or region.
It is available in most of the English speaking countries, such as UK, Canada, South Africa, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Oceania. Great Plains is available in Arabic version across the Middle East and Northern Africa. The countries of South East Asia, where English is used as the language of business also have the version. GP is also available in South and Central America in Spanish. 8. Local and Nationwide Support in USA, Canada and Internationally. We can do local implementation in the case of consultant driving only in Chicago, West Michigan, San Diego, Los Angeles, Orange County, CA. We are ready to fly out onsite for initial implementation within USA, Canada. If you are located internationally, we are happy to discuss the implementation options. To give you a good example of our flexibility we are working with the prospects in Afghanistan/Kabul, Paraguay, Canadian mining company trying to implement GP for its newly acquired gold mining facility in Siberia in Russian Federation.
