In general, I would say "yes" regarding Dynamics GP.  

Regarding CRM, I would say it depends on your definition of ERP.  

The classic definition of ERP would entail software that is designed to manage resources across an entire enterprise; for example, software that was designed to manage procurement, raw materials, the manufacturing process, warehousing, distribution, human resources and payroll would likely be classified as ERP software in that it helps manage the resources of an entire enterprise.

One could make the argument that CRM software, in that it is designed to help manage the "resource" of customers, contacts, and the sales process, could be considered ERP - but I think I and my colleagues would stop short of calling CRM software, by itself, ERP software.

Not only Microsoft can fulfill your needs... Everything depends on your budget.
