And taking advantage of this flexibility are financial reporting choices including inbuilt, flexible financial reports. Other external options for reporting and analysis include Jet Reports.

GP is especially suited to startup, small-medium and entrepreneurial companies requiring an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system with a broad feature set that can be rapidly implemented and is speedily learnt and adopted.

Organisations in the not-for-profit sector—such as charities and foundations, and membership, professional and industry associations—and other non-profit entities like government, semi-government and statutory bodies and authorities—whose needs often involve extensive requirements for financial reporting, budgeting, grant management, analysis of revenues and expenditure, fixed asset accounting, purchasing authorisation and workflow, and integration with billing, membership, asset and equipment maintenance and payroll systems—are also well-served by GP.

Microsoft FRx and Microsoft Management Reporter

Microsoft FRX is a financial reporting and analysis software package that works automatically with the Microsoft ERP software range, Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains), Microsoft Dynamics SL, and Microsoft Dynamics AX (Axapta). FRx can consolidate financial data for multiple companies, provide foreign currency conversions, and present information for multiple departments, locations, companies, cost centres and budgets – side by side. Note that FRx is being replaced by Microsoft with its next-generation financial reporting solution, Microsoft Management Reporter.

FRx (and Microsoft Management Reporter) provide deep insight into all aspects of your business by helping you gain control of your financial reporting and analysis process. Many mid-sized businesses face the challenges of keeping pace with changing needs, while still using legacy systems that require redundant entry and manual tasks. Rapid growth and evolving market conditions make it difficult to meet monthly, quarterly, and yearly financial reporting deadlines. The struggle to close the books faster can result in inaccurate entries and lack of time to spend analysing financial data. Evolving report requirements and the need to accommodate last-minute requests for new customised financial reports can impact your ability to deliver the best and most accurate information on time.

Give your users and managers insight into your business

Microsoft FRx and Microsoft Management Reporter can help make financial reporting and analysis easy, fast, and accurate. This helps your managers drive marked improvements in efficiency and effectiveness, provide timely and accurate information, and accelerate decision-making with financial reporting.

Integrated Reporting

Microsoft FRx is built to work automatically with each Microsoft Dynamics product, including Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics SL, and Microsoft Dynamics AX. Microsoft FRx is also available as an add-on for Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

Microsoft Management Reporter has been released for Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains), Microsoft Dynamics AX (Axapta) and Microsoft Dynamics SL (Solomon).

Get started quickly. Because Microsoft FRx and Microsoft Management Reporter are integrated with Microsoft Dynamics, the learning curve is reduced. Your managers and operators can start using the integrated solution right away.

Harness the power of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and Microsoft SQL Server 2008. Microsoft FRx and Microsoft Management Reporter work with Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and Microsoft SQL Server 2008 to create more robust and flexible reports in Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics SL, and Microsoft Dynamics AX. When a user posts a transaction to the General Ledger (GL) of a Microsoft Dynamics ERP solution such as AX or GP and then runs a Microsoft FRx report, the results of that transaction will immediately appear on the Microsoft FRx or Microsoft Management Reporter report.

Training and Support

Seqola can provide consulting, design assistance, support and training, to help you optimise your use of Microsoft FRx and Microsoft Management Reporter.
