This way, you can manage every aspect of your business from a single system and gain a better understanding of your different operations and departments.
Easier access to client information
Access and manage all of your client information from one place to optimize your operations and processes.

Members across your organization then have access to the details that they need updated in real time.
Shorter billing cycles and increased cash flow
Automating various client billing requirements alleviates the burden on your accounting department. The templates and customizable views facilitate the invoicing process, shortening your billing cycle, reducing the risk of write-offs and bad debt, which in turn will help improve your cash flow.
Improved tracking of your employees’ time
An integrated timesheet allows your organization to automate its time and expense entry process, reducing the amount of time spent entering the data while ensuring that the information is reliable. Time is coded according to a predefined project structure linked to the financial system, providing more detailed information to both the project and accounting teams.
Lower total cost of ownership to maintain your system
A Microsoft Dynamics solution is both robust and flexible enough to be customized according to the specific needs of your organization and industry without requiring costly developments. It also facilitates the upgrade and maintenance of your system and limits the additional costs associated with the upkeep of a custom or in-house system.
