Several premade dashboards and reports are available that connect directly to Dynamics SL and are accessible through PowerBI. Charts and graphs inside the Dynamics SL client as well as a companion application give you powerful, role specific insights. SQL Reporting Services reports along with Microsoft Excel Charts & Management Reporter reports can be viewed from one central location. They will give you the ability to work with a preferred desktop or mobile device. Quick Query and the Quick Query web app give you more than 100 predefined views of your financial data while the Management Reporter Viewer and Designer allow users to administer, design, generate, and view reports.
Take advantage of the benefits of conducting business electronically by integrating and automating business transactions with customers, vendors, and remote warehouses. Manage inventory including outgoing orders, incoming stock, returns, backorders, surplus inventory, and dead stock. Use integrated tools that optimize inventory stocking levels and automate purchasing. Capture actual shipping, handling, and import fees (landed costs) and easily roll them into the total cost of goods. Stay on top of the entire sales order process, balance inventory carrying costs with customer service levels, get accurate, up-to-date vendor and pricing information, and reduce paperwork because employees can enter purchase requisitions online for manager approval and automatic transfer to Purchase Order processing.
Manage field technicians, service agreements and customer information efficiently, and accurately. Automate the work order process, generate work orders quickly and accurately, and track and control every aspect of routine and unscheduled maintenance. The flat rate pricing process which is increasingly becoming the standard in more service industries every day, is now easier than ever. With Microsoft Dynamics SL Flat Rate Pricing you won’t have to purchase expensive flat-rate books from an outside publisher. Instead, you can enable your technicians to give on-the-spot printed price quotes on specific services from your pricing catalog.
Microsoft Dynamics SL makes payroll and benefits administration smooth and predictable. With the advanced payroll module, you can calculate true labor costs, meet time-sensitive government reporting requirements, provide flexible deductions and benefits, and pay your employees accurately and on a timely basis.
Role-based access to information and processes can be provided from a single web-based portal. In addition to the Web Apps, the Light User module provides connections to Dynamics SL ERP data through tools like Microsoft Excel® and SQL Reporting Services and includes a Management Reporter Viewer User. CPU-intensive tasks, such as the printing of reports and execution of processes can be scheduled and offloaded to other machines on your network.
