Barcode modules and extensions for Great Plains are a bit confusing and multiple options exist on the market. Barcoding is hardware as well as Great Plains Dexterity software development & customization oriented.

o Warehouse Management. Either Microsoft Dexterity or SQL Store procedures or even more complex – .Net web development is required

o SOP Module Extensions. Market has multiple out-of-the-box and ready-for-tailing SCM solutions, developed in Dexterity, SQL Stored Procedures, VBA / Modifier and eConnect to fit end client supply chain management and inventory control needs

o Scanner and Hardware analysis. It is always good idea to reserve legacy company investment into barcode scanners and software. In some cases it is advisable to do hardware revision and upgrade, in our opinion – specialist help is the must

o eCommerce. eConnect software development is current trend for Microsoft Great Plains 9.0 (new Project Green name is Microsoft Dynamics GP and is now Microsoft Dynamics GP as well as Microsoft Navision is Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Axapta is Microsoft Dynamics AX)

o Third Party Extensions. Fast Shipper from Alba Spectrum or scanner recommended coding are probably the options you should consider first

o eConnect Project. Microsoft Project Green or its newer name Microsoft Dynamics (GP) will recommend you to stick to eConnect VB or C # .Net development

o Microsoft Business Solutions tactic. It is recommended to check with Microsoft Business Solutions / Microsoft Dynamics / Project Green subdivision on the barcoding selection,
just in case – our time is very turbulent

o Microsoft Dynamics CRM integration. We know that MS Dynamics CRM is taking large companies CRM market and integration is very actual. Please, if you are on MS CRM 3.0, check out Scribe integration (might be expensive for smaller clients). Standard GP – MS CRM Integration is now in the development phase and actually competing with scribe, which may be purchased my MBS / Dynamics subdivision of MS
