Aquarium Gets the Business Tools It Needs With Flexible Licensing Model
The Georgia Aquarium has 450 employees and 2,000 volunteers, who helped the Aquarium bring in more than 2.3 million guests in 2009. Before the Aquarium could open its doors in 2005, it needed to build an IT environment to handle all aspects of operations. To handle financial management specifically, the Aquarium decided on Microsoft Dynamics GP for its robust feature set and flexibility to meet changing business requirements. And by taking advantage of Business Ready Licensing for the solution, which offers a robust set of modules and is priced based on the number of users, the Aquarium has been able to roll out additional modules over time, without adding costs. Microsoft Dynamics GP has also played a pivotal role in helping the Georgia Aquarium perform the financial analysis needed to plan future exhibits strategically and even increase revenues in a down economy.
