    HARWINTON, CT, November 23, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- CAL Business Solutions, a Connecticut based Microsoft Dynamics GP partner, announces the release of a new white paper titled , 25 Brilliant Ideas to Outsmart Your Competition with Microsoft Dynamics ERP. CAL Business Solutions was chosen by the ERP Software Blog to be part of a panel of 21 ERP and accounting software experts from North America and Europe who contributed knowledge to this project. The report includes examples from real-world companies from a wide range of industries, including a food manufacturer, an engineering firm, a restaurant chain, a movie studio, a physician's clinic, a non-profit, a correctional facility, an office supply distributor and many more. Each example of increased productivity is connected to the way they use ERP software as a competitive advantage.

"Each contributor was chosen because of their extensive experience in the ERP software industry. We compiled their stories in clear and easy to understand way so they could benefit others in the software selection process. This white paper is not about presenting sales promises, it is real stories from real companies who are fighting to be the best in their markets every day." comments Anya Ciecierski, Editor of the ERP Software Blog.

CAL Business Solutions submitted entry #10 focused on Pricing Negotiations. It uses the example of a Rhode Island-based distribution company, Amax Inc. Using Microsoft Dynamics GP, the company gained control of their margins -- not only leveling them out but increasing them -- through real-time visibility into ever-changing inventory costs. Competitors, lacking access to margin data don't stand a chance in tight negotiations. The full Amax case study and video review can also be viewed at
