Strengthen Your Team’s Offense
Posted Friday, August 26, 2011 by Don Kapuscinski
With the baseball season looming, the sports/business analogies have been flying around the marketplace. The message that keeps repeating is that ‘the best offense is a good defense’. This may mean something different to each employee and their role but for an organization as a whole, this should mean using the business intelligence (BI) features and functionality in your ERP software solutions to its full extent.
Microsoft Dynamics GP has a new feature called Business Analyzer to help you do just that – defensively manage your business. With Business Analyzer you can bring personalized business intelligence to key roles through graphical reporting. This allows you to quickly evaluate business trends, drill down for further details and take the necessary actions. The reports are fully customizable and users can create their own reports to manage their business critical key performance indicators (KPIs).
In addition to analyzing information in Dynamics GP, you can also use Business Analyzer to select and view Microsoft SQL Reporting Services reports in Dynamics GP from primary lists (note: you do need access to SQL Reporting Services in Report Manager or Microsoft Share Point.) You can share your reports using Microsoft Communicator or Lync and reports are easily copied so they can be used in presentations. This means that your entire team can understand where the business is at.
So with your defense on the charge, your team can offensively make the plays they need to move your business strategically ahead.
