Join us for End-of-Life Technology Planning: How to Determine What Comes Next

Event Overview

There are few things more stress-inducing as a leader than realizing a core business system like your ERP is reaching the end of life or will no longer be supported. A key strategy to remaining relevant and competitive is having an up-to-date, modernized technology stack on your side – and this is especially true in your finance department. Whether you are a current Microsoft Dynamics GP or QuickBooks Desktop user facing the dreaded end of life (EOL) in the next couple of years or have been limping along on a legacy accounting system with minimal patches for a while now, it’s time to get serious about your technology planning.

Join our webinar as we dive into the dangers of legacy and sunsetting systems like Dynamics GP, how to put a proactive plan in place to mitigate risk and downtime, and what actions to start taking now to prepare your organization for the next phase of technology in your finance department.
