The Light User license for Microsoft Dynamics SL is an extremely cost-effective way to give your employees partial access to the system. Not every employee needs full-client access to Microsoft Dynamics SL, but it could be that all of your employees need some access to the system, whether it be to update their personal information, manage benefits and time off, access some reports, submit orders or requisitions, etc. And a Light User license generally costs less than 4% of the cost of a full user license, so it is a great way to go for those employees that do not require full access.
This license enables you to increase productivity and efficiency by providing role-based access to the information and tools an employee needs from a single web-based portal. Employees access the system with Microsoft Dynamics SL Web Apps that enable them to view and enter information from desktops, tablets, or smartphones. Web Apps integrate seamlessly with Microsoft Dynamics SL to deliver information and processes to not only employees, but also to customers and partners across the organization.
In addition, the Light User license provides connections to Microsoft Dynamics SL through familiar tools such as Microsoft Excel and SQL Reporting Services. There is also a Management Reporter Viewer User available through the Light User license, and the Viewer license includes the Generator and Viewer roles within Management Reporter. Generators have access to generate reports already designed in Report Designer, and both Generator and Viewer roles can view the reports.
