When deployed with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, Microsoft Dynamics GP can transform people’s ability to access and analyze accurate, updated data in a format that makes sense, whether they work in Microsoft Dynamics GP or another application such as Microsoft Office Excel, which has report templates based on more than 200 SmartList favorites.
