The rapid growth of Microsoft’s Dynamics 365 Business Central (D365 BC) cloud ERP system comes with investments in add-on app solutions by independent software vendors (ISVs)For example, Progressus is a company as described above and has a project solution for D365 BC. With Progressus, small and mid-sized companies receive easy-to-configure and advanced project accounting functionality in the cloud. 

However, as all project-centric business managers know, good transactional systems also need proper financial planning and analysis tools. In today’s highly competitive market, this can be the difference between success and failure.  As successful project-based companies invest in new cloud-based ERP systems like D365 BC and add advanced project apps like Progressus, a natural next step after the implementation is to look for an integrated and flexible reporting and planning solutionA reporting and planning software like Solver can operate down to the detailed field and dimension level in the Progressus tables inside the ERP system.  

Project Reports for D365 and the Progressus App

Lately, most companies prefer pre-integrated solutions. Due to this, Solver partnered with Progressus and now the corporate performance management solution delivers an out-of-the box integration to both Dynamics 365 Business Central and Progressus. Solver not only provides D365 BC customers with a strong financial reporting and budgeting software for general ledger and sub-ledger data, but it also now extends this functionality into all the project detail provided by Progressus. 

Customer Benefits:

  • Pre-built integration to Dynamics 365 and Progressus tables
  • Pre-built Progressus Project reports
  • Full report writer with Excel design
  • Optional Budgeting module
  • Multi-tenant Azure Cloud Platform
  • Pre-built Power BI integration for interactive Dashboards

However, as with any reporting solution, pre-built report templates speed up deployment when can be used as a starting point. 

Solver offers a number of project-focused reports for Progressus including:  

  • Benchmarking
  • Project Manager Benchmarking
  • Project Capacity by
    • Customer Group and Resource

Both solutions are independently integrated to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. After the partnership between the two companies, they decided to configure a joint integration. With the rapid growth in popularity of cloud ERP software like D365 BC, one of the next big cloud drivers is that ISVs, such as Progressus and Solver, work together to give customers elegant integrations across both standard ERP data as well as transactions originating from ISV add-ins to the ERP systems. This eliminates many of the custom integrations that are configured in the old on-premise platforms.

Technology is driving major industry changes into the next decade. Project managers and executives will need and demand complete insight to their data to drive faster and better decisions. Cloud-based ERP vendors and ISVs are making good strides to make this happen!
