I would like to upgrade from GM PE 8.03 and be able to access GM from anywhere on my mobile devices as well as laptop and pc. I am a small 1-2 person business. What solutions are open to me with GM?
I believe that you are in Australia, otherwise I would offer to assist you. There are no real deals for a 1 - 2 User unless you can find a Partner over your way that will give you a great deal. If you are willing to go with a 3 User, there would be a 3 User Bundle at a very good price.
I'm assuming that you are not current on your Maintenance here so to give you an idea:
$500.00 - ReInstatement
$625.50 - per License ( You may be able to get $549.00 per from some Partners )
$417.00 - Maintenance
$1,542.50 - Total plus you'll have to add in some taxes maybe
So there is your ballpark pricing. Some may be higher, and some maybe lower. I can demonstrate GM Connect for you if you'd like just let me know. I'm not sure if you have any Partners down under, but whether or not you do you can always present your questions to me. I believe that you still have my E-mail Address.
I hope to hear from you as it would be great collaborating with you again.
DJ summarized it well -- if you wish to run on your own serer you can follow the guides DJ laid out -- our reseller for Australia is 3cubed -- david tran. they can walk you through it. David Tran <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Cloud is available with a 3 user minimum - talk to david to get best option.
have spoken to Dave and he was quite helpful.. I am also running Workbooks parallel to GM in order to evaluate their system as it is on the cloud for $39 per month and all devices can access it. The only drawback so far is that you have to use a mail client such as outlook to receive emails.
Iyt would be great if GM could have a one licence cloud solution with reasonable costs for businesses like mine - will that ever happen?
We use google compute for our environment and chose to use the Windows app so users could preserve their data and have same feature set. It's a little more costly to us to host a Windows app. Good luck.

You exposed your phone number in that last post, you may want to edit that out. I looked for a way to send you a message about this but couldn't find one.
thanks for watching out for me -- while i dont mind people calling, using my office number is best.
