Review of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Financial Management by Ian Grieve

Review of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Financial Management by Ian Grieve.


I know of Ian Grieve from his Dynamics GP blog website, so I was interested when I found out it was writing a “How To” Dynamics GP 2013 book. His blog has always been a great resource for knowledge and guidance in the past. Ian’s book condenses down a wealth of GP knowledge into easy to read, instructive paragraphs. As we all know, Microsoft Technical manuals can be a bit overwhelming for the layman. Ian takes all of that knowledge, plus his experience and gives the reader a blueprint on how to setup and maintain a successful Dynamics GP Financial Management System.


Analytical Accounting budgeting can be difficult. Ian tackles Analytical Accounting and specifically the budget in the first chapter.

The book takes what has always been a “murky water” part of GP and shines some clarity on how to actually utilize these powerful modules in GP to their full potential. It was equal to a cliff note for GP Financials not a deep dive but an easy book to read.
