Exploring Gorilla Expense’s Microsoft Dynamics Integration

You've been searching for the right expense reporting automation product to hook into your Microsoft Dynamics program and you've finally found the perfect one—only to discover it isn't compatible with your version of Dynamics. This is a frustrating scenario for any accounting team, but there are Microsoft Dynamics integrations that support many or all versions of this software.

Gorilla Expense is one of them.

Our team is constantly trying to improve the expense reporting process for our customer's benefit, and this often means ensuring that the Gorilla Expense integration works seamlessly across multiple ERPs. But what does this look like in practice? 

In this article, gain insight into how our integration works within the Microsoft Dynamics family, namely with Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics NAV, Microsoft Dynamics SL, and Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (BC).

What to Expect with Our Microsoft Dynamics Integration?

While our Microsoft Dynamics integration offers easy and automated expense reporting and timesheets, it is adapted for each Dynamics version for streamlined accounting and business processes. Consider these differences:

Dynamics GP: As one of the earlier iterations of the Microsoft Dynamics family, Gorilla Expense provides a simple automated integration that supports versions of Microsoft Dynamics GP, including GP Project Accounting. In supplementing this accounting program, our timesheets and expense reporting integrations are fairly straightforward and require fewer customizations than other Dynamics products. 

Dynamics NAV: In this version, jobs and dimensions become more critical for customers. That's why we've made it a cinch to instantly post approved expense data into Microsoft Dynamics NAV as a GL or Purchase Invoice for expense reports and Job Journals for timesheets along with the respective dimensions and jobs. Users can also sync job-related master data and track expenses across custom dimensions.

Dynamics SL: Our integration with Microsoft Dynamics SL allows for a smooth transfer of expense data from Gorilla Expense to the Voucher Entry screens and timesheet data to Timesheet Entry screens. As a result, users can meet their company's unique reporting requirements through detailed customization.

Dynamics 365 Business Central: Similar to Dynamics NAV, users can automatically post approved expense data into Microsoft Dynamics 365 BC as GL or Purchase Invoice for expense reports and Job Journals for timesheets along with the respective dimensions and jobs. But they can also upload receipts into Business Central along with receipts in order to maintain all information within BC. In addition, it's possible to sync job-related master data and track expenses across dimensions and jobs, making it an extremely flexible system.
