As a finance professional, you have unique needs for Microsoft Dynamics. CustomerSource is here to help you get what you need to get the job done.
Capable financial management is central to any company's business success. The finance department develops and implements the financial plans that help the company realise its objectives. By constantly monitoring the company's financial vital signs, the finance department tracks how the business performs against financial goals and keeps other business units up-to-date. The accuracy, timeliness, and security of business information are of the greatest importance to the finance department. To deal with these challenges, financial managers rely on business management software to help eliminate human error, speed up business processes with automation, support regulatory compliance, and improve analysis and forecasting.
Meet the people
- Sara, the CFO
As the one responsible for our company's financial plans, I need to know at any time where the company is and where we are going. The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and business unit heads depend on me to be aware of all financial events and conditions that might affect our business. In turn, the controller, accounting manager, and operations manager report to me with the information I have to derive business insight.
For me, the most important capabilities of our company's Microsoft Dynamics business management solution are the tools that simplify data analysis and reporting, such as Web-based dashboards that present key performance indicators. With timely and accurate data, I spend less time gathering information and more time helping the company grow into new opportunities. It's also up to me to ensure that our company complies with regulatory reporting and data security regulations. Microsoft Dynamics helps me implement and document consistent compliance processes—and reduce the cost of compliance at the same time.
- Ken, Controller
I oversee the financial processes of our company. The CEO and CFO rely on me to understand the details of our company's finances and to research specific strategic decisions and their effect on the bottom line. I have to understand where our company's strengths and weaknesses are from a financial standpoint.
Microsoft Dynamics makes my life easier because I can quickly access up-to-date and accurate information in the system, generate reports as needed, and train staff on a solution that is familiar and works like other Microsoft software. I play an important role in selecting business technology and appreciate that Microsoft Dynamics business management solutions offer well-designed and flexible financial management capabilities.
- Their Processes
Microsoft Dynamics lets you take control of your company's finances and manage for best business results. Most finance managers, whether you are a Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Controller, Accountant, or Bookkeeper, have to manage budget processes, make sure of regulatory compliance, and create, access, and distribute financial reports.
Manage an efficient budget process. You need nimble budgeting and planning tools to keep up with changing business conditions. Microsoft Dynamics offers integrated business management solutions that feed the most current data into the budgeting process, leading to more accurate assumptions about market conditions. In addition, financial managers can use Microsoft Dynamics to explore "what-if" scenarios that help them make wise budgeting decisions. And Microsoft Forecaster, a Web-based budgeting and planning solution, integrates directly with Microsoft Dynamics general ledger capabilities, and further simplifies and speeds up the budgeting and planning process.
Ensure compliance with regulations. Regulatory compliance is a significant concern for almost all companies, especially those that are publicly traded and the companies that do business with them. Microsoft Dynamics is an integrated business management solution that provides a solid foundation for reporting and process automation, which both are key to managing compliance. Help reduce errors and establish easy-to-follow audit trails.
