Microsoft Dynamics SL Reporting Enhancements

Microsoft Dynamics SL continues to focus on enhancing reporting for the everyday accounting user while expanding the secure availability of reports to the non-accounting user. A more comprehensive approach improves the accuracy and integrity of insight that you can gain with actuarial, financial, and operational risk. Let’s look at a few examples of how Dynamics SL’s reporting tools can help your business:

Reports – Emailing

Reports can be previewed and now emailed as attachments with the click of a button. New email capabilities have been added to the SAP Crystal Reports and Microsoft SQL Server Report Services (SSRS) preview interfaces. Users can select the report format and email address, allowing them to share report information.

Report – Report Formats

Support has been added to allow for unlimited report formats. To assist in choosing one of these unlimited report formats is a new feature that defines the most commonly used report format for a report, by company. Now when a report is opened, it will default to the defined format.

Report – Meta data

Newly added metadata for reporting means there is no longer a need to guess what a field means when trying to select specific data to display on a report. For instance, the field name“vr_01610A.acct” will be shown with the description, “Account”. In addition it will also display a status indicating if the field is currently on the report (Yes or No) and whether it came from another table.

Quick Query – Refreshable Excel files

Quick Query provides end users the ability to find data to answer questions, drill back into the product or to share the data by exporting it to Microsoft Excel. With Dynamics SL 2015, the Grid to Excel feature in Quick Query has been enhanced to support the creation of refreshable excel table documents as well as pivot tables. Now data can be exported once and then opened and refreshed over and over again.

How Can Organizations Better Their Controls with Microsoft Dynamics?

More and more CFOs are taking precautions with better report writing and getting other departments involved with capturing, financial, budget, and procurement activity. Years ago the finance department did all these tasks. Although CFOs know that corporate functions increasingly involve more value-added work, they are nevertheless surprised by how much of their non-finance spend falls into the roll-up of the total combined calculations for the fiscal year. A lot of overhead functions have transformed from what you call “back office” and standard organizations might now look like professional services firms because they’re doing so much more decision-support work.

Microsoft Financial Software

Accounting. Companies can measure expenses using the categories in the general ledger, but it might be more informative to also measure them based on the type of work that’s being done.

Accountability. In the past, finance tried to control overhead expenses by relying heavily on automation, centralization, and standardization. But controlling the costs of the organization by anticipating or budgeting (or both) is critical to the decision-making process.

Accuracy. Planning, budgeting, compliance, and forecasting are pressing concerns of CFOs. With massive innovations in cloud, social media, mobility, and data, technology is getting much more complicated, and the field of IT vendors is growing rapidly. As a result, Microsoft Dynamics GP is providing more accounting-based analysis, whether it’s analyzing data, reporting, or in general initiating more control for the entire organization with proper planning.

Agility. The pace of business is faster than ever and finance leaders must understand the importance of agility when responding to a changing business landscape. To compete, companies must be nimble enough to rapidly address changing market conditions without the need for major capital expenditures or complex communications.

Microsoft Dynamics GP offers you solutions to manage complexity and drive business by connecting people, operations, and partners. By choosing a Microsoft business solution, you have options to deploy your resources on-site or using cloud technology — public, private or hybrid — to give you the scalability to accelerate business transformation and spending transparency needed to run a modern, lean, responsive business.
