With the rapid growth of Microsoft’s Dynamics 365 Business Central (D365 BC) ERP solution comes investments in add-on app solutions from independent software vendors (ISVs). One such company is Progressus and their project solution for D365 BC. With Progressus, small and mid-sized companies get easy-to-configure yet advanced project accounting functionality in the cloud. However, as all project centric business managers knows, good transactional systems also need proper planning and analysis tools and this can be the difference between success and failure in today’s highly competitive markets.

As successful project-based companies invests in new cloud ERPs 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 solution that can operate down to the detailed field and dimension level in the Progressus tables inside D365 BC.  One such solution is Solver. Most companies these days prefer pre-integrated solutions and in order to deliver exactly that, Solver partnered with Progressus and now delivers out-of-the box integration to both D365 BC and the relevant Progressus tables and dimensions there. Solver not only provides D365 BC customers with a strong financial reporting and budgeting solution for general ledger and sub-ledger data, but it now extends this functionality into all the project detail provided by Progressus.

Examples of key benefits that customers get are:

  • 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 speeds up deployment when can be used as a starting point. Solver offers a number of project focused reports for Progressus including:

  • Project Benchmarking
  • Project Manager Benchmarking
  • Project Capacity by Customer Group and Resource
  • Project Capacity by Department and Resource
  • Project Capacity Trend by Customer Group and Resource
  • Project Detail by Customer
  • Project List
  • Project Resource Detail
  • Projects – Actual vs Budget Variance

While both solutions are independently integrated to D365 BC, they now also work together after the two companies partnered and decided to configure a joint integration.

 

With the rapid growth in popularity of cloud-based ERPs 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, eliminating many of the custom integrations that had to be configured in the old on-premise platforms.

 

Now as the very beginning of the 2020’s, with rapid technology improvements driving industry changes, project managers and executives will demand and need complete insight to their data to drive faster and better decisions. ERP vendors and ISVs are making good strides to make this happen!
