Cash Flow Management is Easy with Microsoft Dynamics GP

Most business analysts agree: poor cash management is generally the most common blockade in a business plan, and one of the main reasons most businesses fail. But most managers simply do not have the time or resources necessary to implement a good cash management plan – until now. Good cash management doesn’t have to take a lot of time or effort when you’re using a well-built ERP solution like Microsoft Dynamics GP. In fact, Microsoft Dynamics GP can actually make a manager’s day-to-day business tasks a lot easier when they utilize online bill pay, invoicing management, collections management, and much more! Cash Flow Management First and foremost, let’s talk about cash flow management with Microsoft Dynamics GP. While both long-term and short-term cash flow projections are important to any business, many managers make the mistake of solely focusing on long-term goals, thereby losing sight of day-to-day cash flow – a major mistake for any business. Microsoft Dynamics GP includes cash flow management features that allow managers to view account receivables and account payables based on due date, what’s due to pay, and what’s scheduled to be received. With this easy dashboard view, managers can gain better insight of short-term cash flow projections, and ultimately obtain better management of their business’ cash flow. Collections Management With Microsoft Dynamics GP from Professional Advantage, users can easily manage their collections, resulting in better cash flow. The system allows you to quickly sort and view your customers based on their payment history, current balance, credit manager, completed or uncompleted tasks (such as payments promised by customers) or other notes.

Microsoft Dynamics SL

Microsoft Dynamics SL

Project-driven companies need project-focused accounting. It’s that simple. Ordinary accounting and business management software systems aren’t set up to handle the unique project-based demands of your work. Microsoft Dynamics SL, on the other hand, is designed to easily manage the complexities of a project-based business, helping you run more efficiently and giving you insight you can use to deliver accurate estimates—on time and on budget. That means better control, better profits, and more room to grow. Download the Microsoft Dynamics SL product overview. How does it work? A lot like you do… Our enterprise resource planning (ERP) system not only works out of the box, but also it’s designed to serve the evolving accounting needs of project-based and service industries like professional services, construction, government contracting, and engineering. Most importantly, it gets the job done. People get it. Microsoft Dynamics SL is easy to use and understand because it works like Microsoft Office. It’s not like other software solutions. Many accounting options aren’t built for project work, and most industry-specific solutions lack the accounting tools you need. We bridge the gap with comprehensive project management functionality and robust accounting capabilities. It’s on your terms. In the cloud or on-premises, Microsoft Dynamics SL lets your people work anytime and anywhere they’re most productive.      ...
