Microsoft has incorporated lots of self-service features in GP 2015, and as result introduced a self-serve license to access the functionality. Many of our Microsoft Dynamics GP customers are eager to roll out the self-service features company-wide, and we’re excited to share three promotions Microsoft has announced to make it easier to acquire the necessary licenses.
1. Free Self-Serve licenses
“Microsoft Dynamics GP Three Free Self-Serve CALs”
This promotion allows all existing Dynamics GP customers on Perpetual Licensing to add 3 Self-Serve licenses for each GP Full license at no additional cost. That’s right, there is NO added software OR enhancement cost to take advantage of this promotion, as long as a current enhancement plan is maintained. EVERY qualifying customer should take advantage of this offer. To qualify, you must have been on Perpetual Licensing (GP 2013) prior to December 1, 2014.
2. 50% off additional Self-Serve licenses
“FY15 Microsoft Dynamics GP Self-Serve CALs for Half”
This promotion can be combined with the offer above to get 50% off any additional Self-Serve licenses purchased beyond the quantity received for free. This is also a good option for customers who were not on Perpetual Licensing as of December 1, 2014, and do not qualify for the promotion above.
3. Trade in 1 Limited for 10 Self-Serve licenses
“FY15 Microsoft Dynamics GP Limited to Self-serve CAL Conversion”
This promotion allows customers on Perpetual Licensing to trade in 1 Limited license in exchange for 10 Self-serve licenses at no additional cost. If you purchased Limited licenses for employee self-service before the Self-serve license was released with GP 2015, this is a great opportunity to exchange the licenses to increase your user count for free. This offer may also be combined with either of the offers above.
One thing to keep in mind – any customer on the Perpetual Licensing model that was introduced with GP 2013 is eligible for these offers, however, you will not have access to the self-service functionality unless you are using GP 2015. So who should take advantage? Regardless if you’re on GP 2013 or GP 2015, this is a great opportunity to proactively increase your user count for next to nothing. Contact us to discuss your best strategy to make the most of these offers.
