Bringing Microsoft Dynamics GP to Life

Ronda Kilian from DexPros is one of the consulting firms in The List and we sat down with her to learn more about her and her company…

The Partner Channel (TPC): How did DexPros start out?

Ronda Kilian (RK): The company began 12 years ago. I had worked for Great Plains and Microsoft for six years and then when they eliminated my group, I left but continued the same work because I saw such a need for it in the Partner channel. I wanted to continue offering those services and that’s when I formed my own consulting company.

In those early years, I had associates from Microsoft come work for me. Some have gone on to other things and some come back. At one time, I had six different people. We’ve never been huge, but our focus has always been custom development and integrations for Microsoft Dynamics GP.

TPC: Tell us more about the services you do for Microsoft Dynamics GP Partners and do you work solely for Partners?

RK: I do work directly with some users, but the majority of my work is contracting out to Partners. I have been all over the place in terms of customization in Microsoft Dynamics GP. More so in the Sales Order Processing (SOP) and Purchase Order Processing (POP) modules dealing with inventory management. I’ve done more integration and customization there than other areas of business.

What happened in the past year for our business to see such a major swing? You could say we’re posting more content, creating more value, and connecting with more like-minded people. All of that, I would say is true, but I think a few more things come into play.

Download #MakeItDyn Report: Brand Makeovers

By Bethany Foyt

Articles about re branding talk a lot about emotion and how people either love or hate the new company look, product direction, or bold commercials. As dramatic as Business to Consumer (B2C) marketing can be, it is easy to get caught up in the push and pull of it all.Brand Makeovers Graphic

Business to Business (B2B) marketing is not as concerned about making an impression with a rebrand; rather, they want it to more clearly convey who they are as a company.

Our world of technology is changing faster than ever. Who these companies are is evolving just as quickly to meet the demands of technology users and businesses.

Whether branching off into a new market or simply clarifying their value proposition with current customers, these Microsoft Dynamics Partners share their challenges and successes in this report.
