Taking Advantage of Native Business Intelligence Tools in Microsoft Dynamics GP

Experience shows that many CFO’s, Controllers and accountants don’t take advantage of the myriad of canned reports in Microsoft Dynamics GP.  

However, there are over 1,800 canned reports which include:

  • Excel Refreshable Reports
  • Management Reports
  • SmartList Designer Reports, and
  • Business Analyzer reports

These often go unused, as users don’t take the time to learn how to use them.  

Microsoft is introducing Power BI with the next release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016. With all the above mentioned and newer reporting tools available for use, all designed to give an end user quick access to information, users  can react quicker in this ever challenging business environment.  

We’ve heard the old adage, Knowledge is Power, but that’s not true at all, it’s the APPLICATION of Knowledge, that is power.  Learning how to use powerful Business Intelligence tools will help users become more strategic in their jobs, more valuable to their organization, rather than being purely focused on clerical tasks.   

On Tuesday, Feb 16th we will host a Lunch 'n Learn during which Rob Gillespie will be exploring how you can put the BI tools built into Microsoft Dynamics GP to work. We will be digging deeper into the BI topic with some of our vendors during a future Lunch 'n Learn so look out for that invitation.
