Microsoft Dynamics SL

Microsoft Dynamics SL is one of Microsoft’s enterprise resource planning software products. It is part of the Microsoft Dynamics family.
Microsoft Dynamics SL provides businesses functionality in finance, project accounting, manufacturing, field service, supply chains, analytics, and electronic commerce and is primarily targeted for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises.

Microsoft Dynamics SL, originally called Solomon IV for Windows was created by Solomon Software, which was co-founded by Gary Harpst. Solomon Software was an independent accounting software company headquartered in Findlay, Ohio.
In April 1999, Solomon Software refocused the product on an all Microsoft technology strategy. Microsoft SQL Server as the database technology, Visual Basic as the software language, and Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) as the customization language.
Solomon was acquired by Great Plains Software in June 2000. Great Plains was subsequently acquired by Microsoft Corporation in May 2001.
In 2007, Microsoft released version 7 of Dynamics SL which included a complete port from the outdated Visual Basic to Microsoft.NET.
