Accountability 2011

Missed the Accountnet Dynamics User Group Conference?

September 22, 2011 – By Accountnet, Inc. at Microsoft’s Customer Briefing Center.

Thank you to all our customers, sponsors, and special guests who made Accountability 2011 such a remarkable event.

Please find below notes from Accountability 2011:

We have two overarching goals:  to enable the maximum long-term benefits from the Microsoft Dynamics investment already made and to introduce other software programs to extend the existing Dynamics solution.

The following products were introduced:

Management Reporter Demonstration (Microsoft’s replacement for FRx) – Create boardroom-quality reports without IT assistance, use enhanced XBRL capabilities to get updated instance documents simply by changing a date, and take advantage of secure report distribution and storage through the centralized Report Library.  There is also a conversion tool to migrate your FRx reports.  Please request the powerpoint presentation by clicking on this link http://www.accountnet.com/contact-us/

ReQlogic – ReQlogic is 100% web-enabled and allows for a workflow of approvals to be set up for requisitions, AP invoices, and expense reports specifically designed for Microsoft Dynamics GP and SL.  ReQlogic reads the Dynamics database for vendor and inventory information during data entry and then automatically creates purchase orders and payables vouchers in Dynamics, all with the proper vendor and account coding identified once the proper workflow has been completed.  ReQlogic keeps a history of the approved document’s workflow and any scanned images or attached documents.

The following products were mentioned:

FIDO (SL) (The Data Retriever) – This data mining analyzer for SL is available through a browser.

ImageLink (GP & SL) – ImageLink provides document management for Microsoft Dynamics.  Scan documents to the network or attach documents to application screens, and then all users – both Dynamics users and non-Dynamics users – can view the scanned documents.

Scribe (GP & SL) – Scribe enables unattended integration of your Dynamics system with any number of software applications.

The following current Microsoft Promotions were discussed or demonstrated:

F9 Version 5 (GP & SL) – F9 is an easy-to-use financial reporting tool that dynamically links general ledger (GL) data to Microsoft Excel and is available for Dynamics.  F9 leverages spreadsheets’ value by delivering your GL data directly to Excel through a dynamic link to the most current information, with no exports or manual entries required.

eBanking (GP & SL) – Positive Pay (Safe Pay) and ACH processing.

Advanced Bank Reconciliation (GP) (demonstration)

Microsoft Professional Tools (GP & SL) – Change and/or merge chart of account IDs, account/subaccount segments, and vendor and customer IDs.  The current promotion is 15% off three tools, for a total price of $1,700.  Valid until December 20, 2011.  Contact Accountnet for a full list of Professional Tools available for your Dynamics product.

Light User (new versions only) – Purchase Light User for $195 per user.  Allows for view only access to accounting data without signing into Dynamics.

License Model Transition – Add modules without having to increase the annual Microsoft support plan cost.

Special Microsoft Referral Campaign – If you refer Microsoft Dynamics prospects to Accountnet and they purchase a product, you receive AMEX rewards gift cards.

A growing number of Dynamics users want to extend and integrate other systems with the core Dynamics system.  SQL Server Reporting Services training is availalbe, as are CPE credits for Management Reporter and FRx.

Mainstream Microsoft Dynamics Support – Mainstream support for GP 10.0 expires 10/9/2012.  Mainstream support for SL 7.0 expires 10/19/2012.  The latest enhancements in the new version releases help users save time and money.  Contact Accountnet to schedule a free upgrade planning meeting today!
