Dynamics Great Plains to Quickbooks Migration

As Per Intuit QuickBooks, there isn't a way to import "All Transactions" from Microsoft Great Plains or Dynamics into QuickBooks Online. Transactions would have to be entered manually using different file formats since the QuickBooks Online platform is different from Microsoft dynamics. You'll need to identify the transaction type and the file format to ensure that QuickBooks Online will be able to handle them.

Even though there are a multitude of third party companies that claim to specialize in the conversion, the problem is that they will not be familiar with your particular company, which leaves room for costly mistakes. These services often approach the problem the same way someone in house would, so what you are paying for is tedious manual data entry.

Apart from this, transporting data from one software to the other requires a scrutiny of the data being transferred, causing additional strain on staff. It is important to take the time to review current accounting records and clean up bad data like inaccurate inventory counts, duplicate vendor entries, or aging accrual balances. On a more serious level, your accounting records may contain improperly closed periods, inaccurate liability balances, or outstanding balances on old jobs that have been written off or collected.  If the data is bad in your old accounting system, converting to a new accounting system will not improve it.

List Items

How we stand apart

We start by evaluating the source Great Plains data and compile the number of lists and transactions that will need to be converted to QuickBooks. We send you a no-obligation quote after the analysis is complete. We also give you the turnaround time for the conversion. You can decide a cut-off date for Great Plains, and schedule the conversion at your convenience. We work evenings and weekends to make the transition as smooth as possible with the least amount of downtime.

This service includes the following:

  1. We access the source Great Plains data directly and convert all list data to QuickBooks including your chart of accounts, customers, vendors, jobs, employees, classes, inventory, service and tax items, assemblies, price levels, shipping methods, terms, and other names.
  2. We ensure you have a conversion specialist dedicated to your particular file, and will exclusively assess your business needs, making a prompt determination which QuickBooks products would be best suited. 
  3. Our team of professionals host full-time programmers looking after the nitty-gritty details, such as the export, cleaning, and import of your historical data. 

To make sure we see eye to eye, we commit to the following: 

Analysis of Products needed
