Making the choice to upgrade to a more comprehensive enterprise resource planning (ERP) software like Microsoft Dynamics GP doesn’t mean that you have to manually enter all of your existing data into your new software. On the contrary, you can migrate data from QuickBooks or Peachtree into Microsoft Dynamics GP with very little effort. Using the Rapid Configuration Tool for Microsoft Dynamics GP, you simply choose any of the thirteen built-in templates, or customize your own template with Microsoft Office Excel 2007, and migrate important data into your new Microsoft Dynamics GP software solution. Your preferred settings and data including your chart of accounts, payment terms, shipping preferences, tax information, core financial data, and other information can be defined and quickly migrated by using the Rapid Configuration Tool.
