RoseASP, one of Southern California's largest providers of hosted (http://www.myGPcloud.com/) Microsoft Dynamics solutions, today announced commercial availability of myGPcloud, a Microsoft Dynamics enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution which is now available to colleges and universities as part of their academic program.

The myGPcloud service allows professors to set up a new Microsoft Dynamics GP system in less than 10 minutes, allowing their students to have access to sample company data, a live instructor's company, and individual student companies for a rich educational experience. Two offerings have been designed specifically for colleges and universities including a professor only install and a professor and student install. The professor and student option allows students to access their accounting system on any workstation with internet connectivity at any time of day.

"MyGPcloud will be very valuable for our Dynamics Academic Alliance," said Don Morton, Microsoft Academic Alliance Site Leader. "The biggest hurdle for some universities wanting to utilize Dynamics GP is the time and effort to install and configure the system. MyGPcloud overcomes all of those issues and lets professors focus on their curriculum instead of Dynamics technical support."

"We feel this is a 'must have' in teaching accounting today," said Linda Rose, president of RoseASP. "To understand how a computerized integrated ERP system works is key for their success as accountants, controllers, and auditors of the future. And students can literally be in the dorm room at 3 a.m. working on their accounting system homework, because they will be able to access it from their own personal computers."

Doug Pitcher, an accounting instructor at Flathead Valley Community College in Montana, began using myGPcloud this semester. "Setting up the system was quick and convenient," said Mr. Pitcher. "Trying to demonstrate a real accounting system during class time was difficult in the past. With Microsoft Dynamics GP at my fingertips I can demonstrate all aspects of the accounting process right on the internet. MyGPcloud is a perfect fit for the course."
