Are you new to MRP in Dynamics GP or are you looking to improve how you use it in your business? If your answer is yes, then you are in the right place! I will be presenting on April 24 through GPUG, the Dynamics GP User Group, in one of their upcoming Academy Live classes.

GPUG Academy is similar to our own GP Training courses and other webinars and events we offer throughout the year, with virtual, on-site or hybrid training sessions to meet your GP needs and expectations. This approach to training promises to offer GPUG members an exceptional learning experience. The live instructors are experienced and qualified to ensure that you know how to use MRP in Dynamics GP effectively, providing tips and tricks on how to improve the way you use it within your business.

So now that you have your Inventory, Sites and Supply Chain transactions functioning in GP, allow the MRP engine to do your heavy lifting. Walk away from class ready to start fine-tuning MRP in your own environment.

You can join me on April 24, and learn how to make MRP work for you!
