Dynamics is the solution for midmarket businesses that need a Windows solution that is flexible and cost-effective, but does not require IT personnel dedicated to database administration. According to Deverill marketing manager, Tony Kingston 'Signing as a partner to Microsoft Great Plains is a feather in our cap. For two consecutive years, Great Plains has maintained the sole leadership position in Gartner Group's "North American Accounting Midmarket Magic Quadrant" and Gartner has again ranked Great Plains among the market leaders for its completeness of vision. In addition, Arthur Anderson has awarded Great Plains a 'Global Best Practices Award' in a category of Strategic Leaderships. Hardly surprising that Microsoft acquired the company and its products last year.' 'Great Plains accounting software is not only very powerful, it is also fully integrated with the most popular office software solutions, such as Customer Relationship Management and Call Management software. Adding Dynamics and eEnterprise to our portfolio greatly strengthens our strategic aim of providing a full spectrum of IT services and systems.' - Ends - EDITORS NOTES: About Great Plains Founded in 1981, Microsoft Great Plains is a global provider of enterprise business solutions for the midmarket.
