New workflows for new accounts, receivings transactions and purchasing invoices

New workflows have been added to control the addition of general ledger accounts, purchase receivings transactions and purchasing invoices. The workflow for general ledger accounts can be initiated from any area of the system for any new accounts, or for any accounts that are in a workflow state, for example when an account has been edited, but not yet approved.

How Can Microsoft Dynamics GP Enable A Better Technology Ecosystem Today?

We hear about more and more firms that try to automate or migrate old reports to the new Financial Report Writer. “Better enablement with visibility” is the number one need identified by business people when it comes to how they get and use information. Visibility means getting the right information into the hands of the right people at the right time. The right information is relevant and accurate. The right people are those who know what to do next. The right time is whenever they need it. That’s the process of enablement.

Workflow automation helps you streamline key tasks and boost operational efficiencies while freeing your people to pursue their core competencies. Intuitive customization and seamless integration with your existing IT infrastructure help reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and can extend the value of your IT investments. (more…)

For Corporate Well-Being, Avoidance of Vulnerability Is Clear

Protect what you can. It’s crucial for executives to realize that hackers’ perpetual inventiveness shouldn’t discourage companies from addressing the risk, even if they can’t eradicate it. The risk management function, like cyber-attackers, must continually evolve – not only to shield the company from cyberthreats, but also to minimize the potential impact of any such events that do occur. Says one executive who responded to the survey, “Risk elimination is not our goal. Risk reduction is our goal.”

It’s easy to understand why so many senior executives share the same unease. Given the stakes, companies can’t afford to be complacent. Beyond compromising sensitive date about customers or suppliers, cyber-breaches can critically impair relationships with any and all business partners, including investors.
Cyber-attackers have successfully breached brand-name retailers, high-profile financial organizations, and others, including Equifax. In the aftermath of such breaches, the damage can spread in many directions, not only contaminating a company’s reputation but also poisoning its bond with customers by exposing them to identity theft and subsequent financial losses.

Optimism In 2018 Leads The Way For CFOs!

While CFOs’ moods are buoyant, they know full well that a growing economy boosted by high employment has a distinct downside – difficulty finding the workforce and talent to execute on their plans and investments. In the fourth quarter, the proportion of firms that indicated they were having difficulty hiring and retaining qualified employees was at two-decade high for the survey – 43% of CFOs called the issue a top concern.

U.S. firms said they plan to increase employment by a median of 2% in 2018. But they also expected to pay higher wages to achieve that increase. They forecast median wage growth of about 3% over the next 12 months. Wage growth should be strongest in the tech, energy, and retail/ wholesale industries, according to the survey results.

After the labor market, the next biggest concern among U.S. CFOs was also human-capital related: the cost of employee benefits. Health-care costs are expected to rise by more than 8% in 2018. Nearly half of U.S. CFOs indicated that the cost of employee health benefits crowded out their ability to spend on long-term corporate investment. Health-benefits costs ranked even higher than government regulation and (prior to the U.S. tax cut) corporate taxes in that respect. (more…)

How Can The Microsoft Cloud Enable Better Financial Reporting?

Cloud computing and financial reporting are no longer just buzzwords — they are driving business transformation for small and midsize businesses.
