The module is priced low and you can easily achieve a quick ROI. Ask yourself, how many pieces of data they are tracking in an Excel Spreadsheet or access? It would be easier to take that information out of Excel and have it part of Dynamics GP for everyone to see an update.

Common myths about Extender:
Reporting is Difficult: NO, NO, NO. Reporting is easy, you just need to know how. By using the Extender view function, writing reports on Extender data is simple. You can use Report Writer, Crystal, SQL Reporting Services, SmartLists, SmartList Builder, Excel Report Builder.
The table structure is odd and therefore performance can be a problem: The structure is designed to support unlimited numbers of custom fields, so the data is stored differently. Extender has a function called Extender views. With views, you do not need to understand the table structure. Performance is not a worry and with changes in Dynamics GP 10.0, service pack 4, it will be even better.
