We help your warehouse thrive on Dynamics GP.
Transform Dynamics GP into a powerful WMS.
It’s no secret that having an organized warehouse and effective tools to efficiently manage your inventory saves time and money, making your business more profitable. Shipping the right items to the right customers at the agreed upon time naturally creates satisfied and repeat customers. Simply put, effective and efficient warehouse management is critical to your success.
It is not surprising then that many organizations evaluate adding Warehouse Management Solutions (WMS) as a way to achieve gains in efficiency, visibility, and accuracy by incorporating mobile and barcode technology. While there are many solutions available, if your business has already invested in Microsoft Dynamics GP, why not begin your WMS search by evaluating a solution that uses your existing Dynamics GP database?
We can show you the features within Dynamics GP that you can unlock together with PanatrackerGP to transform your Dynamics GP system into a powerful WMS solution at a fraction of the cost.

FAQs – PanatrackerGP for Distribution
PanatrackerGP is installed on mobile barcode-scanning devices connected to a wireless network. This provides real-time access to your data in GP such as purchase orders and item details. Transactions are captured and logged. Most often, the transaction is created in Dynamics GP using Microsoft’s eConnect infrastructure, thus ensuring the transactions are submitted following GP’s standard business rules.
PanatrackerGP uses Microsoft eConnect to submit transactions in GP in the same way they would be entered within the GP interface. Transactions are added and saved in a batch for your review. Automated posting solutions can be added to streamline your data capture even further.
Many organizations evaluating WMS solutions are looking to add mobile and barcode technology to simplify inventory receiving, moves, transfers, and picking of inventory. PanatrackerGP combines with the Inventory, Sales, and Purchasing functionality of Dynamics GP to provide the functionality of a WMS (Warehouse Management System).
PanatrackerGP provides the ability to use real-time features of GP that weren’t practical when performing manual keyboard updates ‘after the fact’. These features include the use of multi-bins and separating order fulfillment processing which allow the actual items picked to be updated on the sales order.
We believe that most small to mid-size distribution organizations can improve their day-to-day operations with PanatrackerGP. Adding PanatrackerGP to your current GP investment transforms GP into a highly functional WMS system.
We offer an add-on module for Assembly. It is included as part of our Manufacturing solution but can also be added to any of our solutions. This transaction creates the Inventory Assembly transaction and offers lots of flexibility in how the assembly transaction is captured. We also include Assembly Work Orders to add some basic planning functionality.
PanatrackerGP offers a Manufacturing module which supports the issue of raw materials, packaging, and components — as well as record finished goods. This module also offers support for the Inventory Assembly transaction. All core inventory functionality of PO Receiving, moves, transfers, and stock counts are included. Order Fulfillment functionality is also an option to be included with these modules.
PanatrackerGP offers a sales module add-on with our inventory solutions. This transaction allows you to create a new sales order in GP or to add order lines to an existing sales order in GP.
PanatrackerGP was designed to extend Dynamics GP data-entry onto mobile scanning devices so that transactions can be captured when and where the inventory activity occurs. To achieve efficiency and accuracy, a mobile device option is ideal to record transactions when users are interacting with the inventory. Therefore, we do not have a redundant desktop interface. Many of our customers have opted to use tablets with the Android OS.
Yes! Even if the vendor’s barcode is a different number than your Dynamics GP item number, PanatrackerGP can associate alternate item numbers to your GP item number when receiving inventory (or as a separate transaction). It creates the association in GP under the Manufacturer Item Number Maintenance screen in GP.
GP has SOP-POP link options, and we can display the sales orders linked to the purchase order lines at receiving. If you are looking for more complex cross-dock functionality, please give us a call to discuss it further.
‘License plating’ is a term which is a bit abstract and may mean different things to different organizations. Please contact us to discuss your requirements and we will help determine if our solution is a good fit.
PanatrackerGP supports all common inventory functionality such as PO receiving, transfers, moves, counts … through order picks.
Additionally, we have built advanced functionality and logic to support inventory management at a WMS level. Some examples include:
- Robust pick functionality with pick directives based on the primary stock bin for inventory.
- Verify Order allow you to record the pack of your shipments or to simply confirm the pick as an optional workflow step.
- Advanced bin logic allows you to define bins as stock bins, or overstock. With priority bin and min/max setup in GP, we add restock functionality options.
- Flex Fields allow you to capture additional custom data. ‘Pre’ and ‘Post’ SQL stored procedures offer additional integration capabilities.
- Capture of what is packed to each box being shipped with integration to StarShip for enhanced shipping support.
