Although cloud-based ERP solutions can help companies manage upfront and ongoing IT costs, many businesses are put off by initial setup fees, minimum user requirements, and annual contracts. Aiming to simplify on-demand ERP for customers and partners, RoseASP decided to build an ERP offering that combined the company’s experience in financial accounting with top-tier hosting capabilities.
Rypos is an innovative clean-technology provider that provides intelligent, self-cleaning particulate filtration systems for diesel engines. An implementation of Intuit QuickBooks financial software met the company’s needs early on but was unable to support first-in-first-out (FIFO) inventory accounting practices and lacked integration with Rypos’ third party manufacturing application. Technologists from Rypos and Altico collaborated in migrating the company’s historical data to the new ERP system. Now, Dynamics GP functions as an extremely reliable ERP system that reflects the company’s complex business model.
Computer Data Source (CDS) used Intuit QuickBooks software for finance and business management and Tigerpaw to administrate contracts, track inventory, and manage delivery systems. However, CDS quickly outgrew what QuickBooks was capable of. And, because the two systems were not integrated, redundant data entry was standard practice. Now at CDS, Microsoft Dynamics GP serves close to 40 employees in finance, contracts administration, the warehouse and shipping, inventory management, and business reporting and allows them to see real-time updates on the resolution of their service issues or the delivery of equipment.
Dr. Miracle’s is a leader in the ethnic personal-care products industry.

Amalfi Semiconductor, a pioneer of high-performance radio frequency (RF) semiconductors for the cellular handset market, experienced rapid growth from its success and the company needed more financial and manufacturing management capabilities than Intuit QuickBooks could provide. The company implemented Microsoft Dynamics GP and complementary add-in solutions with Microsoft Partners Tensoft. Amalfi has already saved $75,000 in duplicate vendor invoicing and realized significant efficiencies. With the business management software in place, executives, operations employees, and finance managers have improved insight and control.
