Belinda Allen

BI Program Manager
PowerGP Online / Njevity, Inc.

Belinda Allen is a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional for Dynamics GP (MVP) and a GPUG (GP User Group) All-Star. Belinda is currently the Business Intelligence Program Manager for the new Azure Cloud based SaaS ERP offering, PowerGP Online. This is an “Amped” up version of the GP we all love, running in the Microsoft Azure Cloud. In this role, she helps both Partners and Customers design and implement BI methodologies, allowing businesses to make decisions based on timely and accurate information.

Belinda has just completed her second book, Building Dashboards with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 - Second Edition. The first edition of the book was written by Belinda’s close friend and fellow Microsoft MVP, Mark Polino. Her first book, “Real-world Business Intelligence with Microsoft Dynamics GP” was actually co-written with Mark Polino. Both books are available for sale on Amazon.

Belinda is also an inaugural member of the Board of Advisors for PBIUG (Power BI User Group.) In this role she provides her experience to the User Board Members, while they create the foundation for this new organization. The goal is to make Power BI a critical tool in the user’s organizations.
Belinda began implementing ERP systems so long ago that Windows was not an operating system but an application. And at that time, larger businesses used main frames with monitors that projected green type on black backgrounds, and smaller business did their accounting by hand. Having seen the evolution that has taken place over the years from sheets of paper to integrated analytics, Belinda still gets excited every time she helps a business improve.

Belinda is also well known for her blog, www.BelindaTheGPcsi.com. On her blog, she shares really useful information about the product quickly and succinctly. She has earned the nickname GP CSI because she excels at reviewing GP problems and figuring what went wrong… and why. With followers from all over the globe, she is able to share knowledge and achieve her mission: “To improve the lives and business success of my followers.”
