Dynamics GP vs. Netsuite (lies make my blood boil)

I have been seeing quite a few postings from Netsuite regarding ” Webinar to Spotlight Why Microsoft Dynamics GP Customers Move to NetSuite Cloud ” They claim “Customers of Microsoft Dynamics GP confront the challenge of operating a pre-Internet solution built based on antiquated client-server architecture, meaning the software can’t capitalize on the economies of scale of the cloud.  The “version lock” of on-premise software leaves customers waiting for infrequent product updates that require re-testing of all customizations and hardware upgrades, whereas NetSuite issues two major upgrades per year and configurations and customizations carry forward automatically with no need for hardware.” There are so many bold faced lies in there, that it makes my blood boil. Dynamics GP has been available on the cloud as long as the cloud has been around

Exchange Rates Feed

Few days back I got mails from many customers reporting that the exchange rates feed stopped working due to an error with the host, the tool was linked to a free exchange rates provider source and therefore it is unsupported. Yesterday Mark Polino gave me a great idea to pull sources from YAHOO or GOOGLE and ignore the source we are using, and due to the large base of customers currently using this product I have redeveloped the product to count on more reliable source by readying from YAHOO which I believe will not go down for long time! YAHOO API provides the rates over a methodology that does not work with the product, therefore I had to “find/amend” a web-service that reads from YAHOO and send results back to the application and the web-service is currently hosted at our web host, I know that the host is not reliable as YAHOO but at least we can get rid of issues we used to face and minimize the downtime as it became controllable. To get the updated package, please drop me a mail and I will send it immediately! Regards, — Mohammad R.
