Manage Your Entire Commercial and Government Enterprise from One Solution

office team


Large enterprises that provide professional, engineering, or manufacturing services to the Federal Government have very specific requirements about how they must account for their costs and expenses. Always under the careful eye of government contracting authorities, they must ensure that their project accounting capabilities are compliant with how these agencies audit their systems. These enterprises have historically been laden with older legacy systems that are difficult to use, onerous to support, and limited in cross-business functionality.

The same challenges apply to companies with large commercial business operations that also have strong government sales. These companies have historically needed multiple accounting systems to manage their individual business lines. This led to inconsistencies in reporting, inequities in accountability and wrong information being managed.

A single ERP solution that could account for multiple product lines, let alone multiple companies or businesses, would enable a great deal of efficiencies and cost savings. The solution would also be able to provide information that would help multiple audiences understand where project funding and utilization stands at any given time. It would also offer multiple audiences across the firm information that would help them manage all parts of the business line more effectively in order to make better business decisions.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV has the same look and feel as all Microsoft products, including Windows and MS Office, which most operators are familiar with. It is built on Microsoft services such as the SQL Server database and Microsoft SharePoint. Because of this and the product’s inherent flexibility, Microsoft Dynamics NAV requires less staff resources to manage.  Any Microsoft trained professional can learn how to manage and operate the system in a very short period of time. Most accounting and program professionals are familiar with the Windows look and feel so training is much shorter and operators can be up and running much quicker than with competing systems.
In order for program managers to be more effective, they need easy access to reports on the items that drive profitability per project, from their unique perspective. The reporting must be impactful and valid and must be easily accessible over the web in real or near real time. Project managers are working in an ever changing world and are particular about the type of reports they want (economic value proposition per project, for example). Microsoft technology helps project managers break down their projects to the nth degree and track costs. Customers can do more profitability analysis and in real time view all project costs; growing trend to make project managers more effective and give them the tools to make their business more profitable.
