Adding Custom Fields in Dynamics 365 Enterprise

February 01, 2018 / 0 Comments / in Manufacturing ERP Software, Cloud ERP SaaS, Dynamics 365 for Operations, Dynamics 365 Enterprise / by Nancy Phillippi

Dynamics 365 Enterprise is now even a better value for businesses with the recent new feature release, Custom Fields. This feature allows any user with security to add custom fields to form windows. I am amazed daily by the depth of Dynamics 365 Enterprise and the constant flow of new features in an already feature rich environment. Now with this latest feature there is very little this solution can not do. In fact we had an all day presentation recently and the prospect had spent the previous day on a SAP demonstration. We got immediate feedback that Dynamics 365 Enterprise was easier to navigate and more user friendly than SAP. Not only was the prospect impressed, but the consulting firm they hired to help them evaluate ERP solutions agreed. The consultant also stated that they were very impressed by the deep functionality of Dynamics 365 Enterprise.

It involves planning, scheduling, and monitoring various stages of the budget cycle and pushing people to either send in their work or translate their spreadsheets so one person can consolidate various documents into one.

It's Budgeting Time!

November 09, 2017 / 0 Comments / in Microsoft Dynamics AX, ERP Software, Dynamics 365 for Operations, Dynamics 365 Enterprise, Budgeting / by Courtney Collum

The phrase “It’s budget time” generally produces a groan from everyone who participates in this time consuming, often misunderstood process. I have heard all the arguments on budgets: “It’s just a guessing game,” “How can I possibly know what is going to happen next week let alone 6 months from now,” “I have to add extra expenses because I know management is going to reduce what I submit,” “I don’t understand budgets,” “I don’t have hours to spend coming up with ‘fake’ numbers that are going to be ignored,” and “why do we need a budget if it is not always accurate?”
