Microsoft Dynamics SL is the project-focused ERP solution for project-driven organizations, and as such, the project management capabilities found in the Business Essentials edition of Microsoft Dynamics SL is all that most organizations will require. However, if your organization has unique, specialized, or highly demanding project management needs, then you will find that the Advanced Management edition of Microsoft Dynamics SL has you covered, whatever those needs might be. The following modules come with the Advanced Management edition of Microsoft Dynamics SL:
- Project Analyzer
- Project Allocator
- Project Controller
- Flexible Billings
Project Analyzer facilitates timely decision-making with efficient access to comprehensive data about project performance and profitability. Project Allocator gives you complete control over project finances by enabling you to create flexible, multi-tiered hierarchies to reflect a wide spectrum of labor rates and billing structures, as wide as you need it to be. You can then automatically allocate charges and revenues, account for work-in-progress, transfer or consolidate transactions, and record accurate data for billing and posting to general ledger accounts.
Project Controller gives your managers accurate, meaningful information they need to gain complete control over project revenue and expenses, enough control to make even low-margin projects profitable. New enhanced multi-currency and multi-company features enable further flexibility. And the Flexible Billings module enables you to take control of unbilled receivables and convert them more quickly to revenues. You can streamline invoicing with automatic generation, formatting, and submission of drafts for approval, and then easily note needed corrections, finalize invoices, and post receivables.
