Reference Program

GPUG believes strongly that a broad and growing community of businesses using Microsoft Dynamics GP is essential to bringing optimized benefits to each member of the User Group.  With this in mind, GPUG strongly supports the Microsoft Dynamics™ Customer Reference Program.  This formal program operated by Microsoft is designed to manage and showcase customers who have demonstrated business success with their partners utilizing Microsoft Dynamics solutions.  These customers can then be called upon by Microsoft and Partners as references to prospective customers of Dynamics GP.  The overall goal is to give frank and earnest insight of the ownership and operation of Dynamics GP to prospective customers making them comfortable that they can make a solid business decision for the adoption of GP into their business.

Importance to GPUG Members
The program carefully coordinates the involvement of members willing to provide references.  Careful tracking is kept to keep from overextending a few members.  The program extends awards and rewards to customers who actively participate.  Benefits include case studies, press releases, speaking opportunities such as Convergence, and webcasts, to name a few.  To see a list of activities click here.
