Your Bridge to D365 Business Central

We know changing ERPs is difficult but eOne is here to make it as seamless as we can.


Dynamics GP to Business Central

You have options when migrating while still having access to your legacy data.

All ERPs have a shelf life.  For many Dynamics GP users, the time has come to move to the cloud and Dynamics 365 Business Central (BC).  eOne Solutions has developed a plan to ensure you’ll still have access to your legacy GP data when you go live with BC.

SmartLists for BC

Start using  SmartLists for Business Central. Your end-users will be using the exact same reporting tool in Business Central as they used in GP. Providing a familiar reporting environment will make the switch to BC an easy transition for your team as they will be building SmartList reports, without any training, once you switch over to BC.

We know changing ERP is difficult but eOne is here to make it as seamless as we can.

SmartList Builder for BC

Every business is unique and the reporting needs are specific to your business. Building complex reports with BC data just got as easy as it was in GP now with SmartList Builder for BC.

When you move to the cloud you lose access to the SQL server data – but SmartList Builder makes working with Business Central Web Services just as easy as it was to build complex reports in GP.

If the data is in Business Central then you or your consultant can pull it out with SmartList Builder.

Access to Legacy Data

eOne has developed a way for you to be able to access all of your GP data from within BC.  You can search, find, and filter any data from GP – without having to go back and login to GP.

What we do is take the data from your most important (favorites) SmartLists and move that data into a data lake.  We then point SmartLists for BC at the GP data and you can see it all from right within BC.  For a totally seamless experience, we can combine GP data with BC data so you don’t even have to remember which system the data was in.

Archive your Legacy GP Data to a Data Lake

Avoid maintaining an on-premise GP by using Popdock to move to Azure Data Lake, Amazon S3 or Wasabi. Avoid slowing down BC and bloating your database. Choose which data to archive.

Microsoft GP data right in Business Central

You do not want to move all your GP data into Business Central. This is your chance to start with a clean and fresh ERP, and yet you are going to need a way to see all your GP data.

We have given this a great deal of thought and worked with both GP and BC partners to come up with the best possible solution.


Making the move from GP to
BC as smooth as possible

You decide which GP data you are going to need to see, determine which Smartlists contain that data and we do all the heavy lifting.

Our tool will take all of those favorite SmartLists and move them into an Azure data lake. This is the very best place to store your data as it provides the fastest possible way to access large amounts of data.  The other big benefit is it is the most cost-effective data storage in the cloud.


Master Records & Opening Balances

You will not want to key in all of your master records and open transactions.  Microsoft has built a migration tool to help move these items into GP – but this tool does not cover all the data you will want in GP.

SmartConnect monthly subscriptions can be used to complement or replace the migration tool by moving all the data Microsoft forgot (Projects, Fixed Assets, Manufacturing. Field Service, etc.).


Archive your SQL server

Move your Dynamics GP data to Azure SQL.
