GTS Merges Glass Business Software with Microsoft Dynamics GP

GTS, a wholly-owned subsidiary of PPG Industries, based in Portland, Ore., has introduced a new business management solution intended to enable commercial, residential and auto glass shops to combine their GTS software with Microsoft Dynamics™ GP. The new software solution, created specifically for glass industry needs, embeds the general ledger and accounts receivable components of Microsoft Dynamics GP directly into the GTS GlasPac®LX software.

Embedding the two systems means users do not have to toggle between separate applications or import/export data. Instead they are able to seamlessly access and use GlasPacLX files and data from within the familiar Microsoft® Office interface. The result is one-step, streamlined access across key business and data management tools, for greater productivity, flexibility and ability to grow a business.

"We've built a reputation for innovative glass business software for two reasons--our superior technology and listening to customers and the changing market trends they need to navigate," says Mike Jones, president of GTS. "By combining Microsoft's accounting solutions with our market-leading GlasPac software, we've just eliminated another barrier to empowering yet simplifying glass business operations."

According to information from the company, the software is able to connect business processes with the customer's accounting system for a single, streamlined solution, and also improves access to business data. Users can simply search for information rather than always needing to know how to navigate to a specific report. In addition, GTS is able to offer customers customizable solutions that combine GTS GlasPacLX and Microsoft Dynamics GP.
