  • Lions and Cheetahs, Blue Hair – Oh MY!

    by Alicia Weigel, Technical Sales Team Lead | Jun 12, 2017
    All these things and more were part of my experience in Johannesburg, South Africa last month. More on my blue hair in a minute. The purpose of this great trip was to present at the Reignite GP conference – a first annual event put on by Braintree. Braintree is the largest Microsoft Dynamics GP partner in Africa, and just an all-around great group of people. They delivered a conference focused on GP users and their needs, and it was fueled with a passion for a product we all know and love.

Billed as the intersection of tools and technologies, this conference had plenty of valuable content to help enhance your skillset.

  • Create System Harmony with Segregation of Duties in Dynamics GP

    by Angela Melhus, Support Team Lead | Apr 26, 2017
    We’ve been tossing around the topic of segregation of duties within our team recently and one team member proposed a fun analogy. What if we explained segregation of duties within GP as if it were The Hunger Games! We’re not suggesting you throw all your GP users into the conference room and see who makes it alive. Rather, humor us and pretend for the next five minutes that you find yourself in Panem, the futuristic civilization created by Suzanne Collins in her book trilogy.

Since that blog was published, Rockton Software has added a new window to our products which further simplifies the process of creating a script log using two of the three methods mentioned in that original article.

  • Work it Smarter, Make it Better, Do it Faster...

    by Elise Rooney | Feb 27, 2017
    We start almost every demo of our most popular product, SmartFill, by posing the same question to Dynamics GP users: How many times a day do you click on the magnifying glass icon? The reply is usually a jumble of responses which include, but are not limited to, “a lot” and “too many”, always accompanied by a chorus of moans and groans. Those frowns are quickly turned upside down when users see the time-savings SmartFill can provide
