Month End Year End Processes- November 28 – Webinar

[my_title]

Microsoft Dynamics 365

How long does it take to finalize your month-end closing reports? Are they ready for review on the first of the month? Most likely, your month-end reports are incomplete until well into the first week of the following month. Do you need to consolidate reports from across different departments?

Reconciling the information can take several days in some cases leaving you with already stale and outdated reports by the time they get reviewed. Learn how to utilize Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018 Month End and Year End Processes to have a 2-day month end process, with better financial reporting.

When your reports are outdated so are your decisions, and this can cost your company money and opportunities for growth and impact your cash flow. This week we’ll take a look at what your month-end & year-end reporting process might look like if you had a comprehensive business management solution like Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018. We encourage you to bring your questions so you can receive feedback from our available experts at the end of the webinar.

  • Introduction to the core NAV Financial software, additional modules, new technology
  • Month End Best Practices
  • What you do at year end
  • Reconciliation reports
  • Management reporting and making journal entries easier
  • Building financial statements using Jet Reports & Account Schedules, Power BI
  • Q & A session

Management Reporting for Canadian Manufacturers in 2017

In Microsoft Dynamics NAV & CRM 2017 there are 47 modules, 12,500+ programs, and 545 standard reports that cover every conceivable topic for the 170,000+ NAV customer around the world. How do I know this? I spent an entire weekend with 3 team members and looked at every report in the system.  A very long weekend!

The average Vox ISM Microsoft Manufacturing Customer goes through 5 steps to get the management information they need to run and improve their business:

  1. Standard reports and forms (Income statement, Balance sheets), and correct forms (13 standard forms such as Purchase orders, order acknowledgements, invoices, checks, etc.)
  2. Dashboards to give you your key metrics
  3. The ability to download to Excel to do analysis
  4. Vox - Business Intelligence (BI) Cubes to do detailed analysis (Sales, Financials, Manufacturing, and Supply Chain.
  5. And Power BI – where the cool kids play. Also we have just started working with Artificial Intelligence (AI), this will be the story in 2018

This reporting evolution often takes a year to get in place, and leads to many surprises for the customer. The BI brings past mistakes to light, and gives you the data you need to improve your business.

See Below for the evolution of management reporting from a 1985 style income statement to a dashboard in Power BI (available on any device)            https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/desktop/
