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.

With the latest updates, LANDESK gives organizations an improved view of what’s in their environment and the ability to take action within the same system.

Without this level of visibility, organizations face higher risks of failed audits, security threats, inconsistent policies and support for devices, and lackluster IT and business services. http://www.landesk.com/company/press-releases/2016/landesk-quarterly-product-update-increases-visibility-in-enterprises/?langtype=1033&clangtype=1033
