If you’ve been paying attention to the Microsoft Dynamics world of software, you may have run across the term, ‘Rapid Start’ recently and wondered, ‘what does this even mean’?

For distributors especially, downtime when implementing or upgrading Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software can’t affect the constant flow of operations. This is the number one concern for distributors, but with Rapid Start Implementation and Configuration Tools for Microsoft Dynamics® ERP, that concern can be alleviated.

The Rapid Implementation Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0, Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 and Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 include tools designed to shorten deployment time and improve implementation productivity, ultimately saving you money in the process and getting you up and running with your new software faster with limited downtime.

By using one of the industry specific templates through Rapid Start, users can be configured quickly and easily within an intuitive user interface. With this tool, you can set up your chart of accounts, fiscal years, payment terms, shipping methods, taxes, core financial and distribution module setup, and more. Although it’s a ‘cookie cutter’ approach, we know your business is unique and the new release of Rapid Start allows for configurations to proceed in a phased approach rather than an all or none approach when importing configuration data from another Microsoft Dynamics GP company.

The recent release of Microsoft Dynamics® GP 2013 ( offers many new features and enhancements in addition to the Rapid Start Tools.  Learn more on our website or contact us at Collins Computing.
