Even companies experiencing success can face challenges when it comes to upgrading their business software. That was the case with Sprenger Health Care Systems when they moved from their legacy Microsoft Dynamics GP to cloud-based Dynamics 365 BC (Business Central). Let us tell you how we met the challenge with FYIsoft's ReportFYI.
Sprenger Health Care Systems is an expansive enterprise providing care services for the aging. Their services include short-term post-acute rehabilitation, long-term nursing care, assisted and independent living, memory care, and hospice care.
The challenge: Financial Reporting for Multi-entity Accounting in Dynamics 365 BC
Due to the nature and extent of their business, financial reporting for Sprenger’s 80 entities is complex. The finance team was very familiar with Microsoft’s Management reporter. However, Management Reporter is a legacy tool that worked well with Dynamics GP but is unavailable in the cloud. They needed another option to integrate with their Microsoft Dynamics 365 BC cloud solution.
The client’s Microsoft consultant suggested an Excel-based reporting tool. But that solution required a lot of heavy lifting and presented a significant learning curve. Also, the client’s large amount of data would not translate well into the feed. It would require a great deal of manual Excel work and programming to be of use.
Our solution – ReportFYI
We recommended ReportFYI as the best financial reporting software replacement for Management Reporter following a migration to Dynamics 365 BC. The functionality is similar, and there are some additional features to make reporting even easier. With a minimal learning curve, most of our Dynamics BC customers are able to begin leveraging their new reporting system immediately.
We were able to automate the conversion of the customer's existing Management Reporter reports thanks to FYIsoft’s unique report conversion tool. And we accomplished all this with minimal disruption to their ongoing financial reporting. With ReportFYI, Sprenger Healthcare Systems has cut its report generation and distribution time by at least 50 percent.
