Last Tuesday we exhibited at Decisions, a virtual conference showcasing the family of Microsoft Dynamics GP solutions. Attendees asked us some very important questions mostly regarding what our magical powers are with Microsoft Dynamics GP. A magician never reveals his secret… but the reason why businesses that use GP love us is just no secret anymore. We’ve been doing it for 16 years. Here are a few inquires that I’ve pulled out of the hat:
Q: I would like to know how you gather the time, and if your project integration is to project accounting?
A: We can integrate in a number of ways. Our solution tracks time and expense via the web and can send it to Dynamics GP through Project Accounting. We also act as stand-alone solutions for time and expense tracking.
Q: We have a need to collect time in our outlying locations, but since most of our work is done outside (no computer available) we will need to collect time in different parts of our plant without much employee involvement. Does your product fit this situation? We already have Dynamics GP PR in place.
A: Supervisors and team leaders can enter time of behalf of their resources or we can pre-populate the time based on what work is usually done, which would be a simple login-and-approve interaction. Employees would be able to make changes as needed
Q: Do you work with Thinkware?
A: We can integrate with most systems, specifically if it can accept .txt or Excel files. We are definitely familiar with the PEO space so integrating with Thinkware would not be a problem.
Q: Can you have three different approvals on the same time sheet going on at the same time, i.e. one for the PM, manager, and program manager?
A: Absolutely that’s one of our product's biggest advantages. We provide flexible approval paths that allow you to control who has access to timesheets at the per-person level.
