In the current economic times both employers and employees are challenged to do more with less. Where it might be perceived that this is the only way to run a business in this day and age, it could ultimately be hindering a company's growth and future.


How do you keep your company growing?
Stand out above your competitors by creating an environment that will fully engage your employees. Great companies and management must shift the focus from trying to get more out of people to investing more in the four core needs of their employees - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Now this might sound too touchy-feely for some, but consider reading

The Twelve Attributes of a Truly Great Place to Work - on Harvard Business Review's blog network, and you will find some great ideas that could just be the right thing to make your employees feel more inspired and engaged.


Remember that giving people the right tools and fuel will not only keep them nourished, it will make your company a great place to work and make you a company that customers want to work with as well.

Microsoft Dynamics GP "12" - The Windows 8 Vision


With the next version of Microsoft Windows 8, set to be released sometime next year, the Microsoft Dynamics team has been hard at work with the next release of Microsoft Dynamics GP incorporating the newest features of the next Microsoft operating system into their design plans.


Knowing that a redesign to the Microsoft Dynamics GP platform was necessary to accommodate the new design of Windows 8, a technology choice had to be made. It was decided to use Silverlight 5 as it will be able to take advantage of the technologies being developed for the next generation of Windows 8. Jay Manley from Microsoft explains the benefits of this latest technology and what you can expect on the Microsoft Dynamics GP Blog.  As we find out more information on these new platforms we will be sure to pass them along to you and would love to hear what you have to say.
