Top 10 reasons to upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics SL 7.0

Built to help you more efficiently manage accounts and process requests, Microsoft Dynamics SL 7.0 empowers your employees, managers, customers, and vendors to increase their effectiveness by providing the tools they need to access and manage data. Here are 10 reasons that upgrading to Microsoft Dynamics SL 7.0 can help your business.

  1. New menu interface. Microsoft Dynamics SL 7.0 has a new menu interface similar to the familiar Microsoft Office system. Configurable, role-relevant menus and home pages, improved text editing, and step-by-step menus that can be customized reduce the time required to become productive.
  2. Flexible reporting tools. Powerful reporting solutions include Business Information Optimization (BIO), a business intelligence solution built specifically for Microsoft Dynamics SL 7.0, and SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS), an interface to call SSRS reports from within Microsoft Dynamics SL, can help you integrate, analyze, and present data from multiple sources to meet specific needs of your company.
  3. Electronic document delivery. Set up your system to automatically deliver email or faxes by using Quick Send. Save time and money, and improve customer service by sending purchase orders and invoices to your customers and vendors by using email or fax.
  4. Pay-subcontractor-when-paid. Link subcontractor and customer work so that payment to the subcontractor is not made until the work has been accepted by the customer and the associated customer invoice is paid.
  5. Additional currency support. Project expenses can now be entered in many currencies, and handling of value-added tax (VAT) is also supported. The Scheduled Billings and Billing by Percent processes now allow for multi-currency processing.
  6. Business Portal project access. Create, edit, or view project information from the Web by using the new Project Maintenance screen. The Business Portal project maintenance screen is a combination of information pulled from five separate screens to provide project users the information they need. Access to project data can be controlled to suit the needs of your projects.
  7. Business Portal built on Windows SharePoint Services 3.0. You can access your enterprise resource planning (ERP) data, along with features such as document repository, calendars, blogs, wikis, and RSS feeds provided by Windows Sharepoint Services.
  8. Maintain security and efficiency. New optional security features support Windows Authentication so that users can log on to their systems and to Microsoft Dynamics SL without the need to re-enter information. This also makes Microsoft Dynamics SL compliant with your corporate password policies.
  9. Continued compatibility with current technologies. Microsoft Dynamics SL 7.0 provides support for the latest business tools and technologies. Included are support for the Windows Vista operating system, Microsoft SQL 2005, Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server, the 2007 Microsoft Office system, and Microsoft Project 2007.
  10. Microsoft Dynamics SL 7.0 is a .NET product. Microsoft Dynamics SL 7.0 has been rewritten to run in Microsoft Visual Basic 2005, making it a .NET product. This allows more opportunity for customization and provides a strong base for developing future features and interfaces.
