SAGlobal announces availability of ProjAX (now known as Projects+) resourcing solution for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012
The ability to effectively manage and schedule project resources is one of the most critical operational success factors within our Professional Services industry clientele. This includes having visibility of future capacity requirements in order to accurately plan workforce staffing requirements, as well as ensuring that resources achieve optimal utilization levels, meaning they’re neither under or over utilized.
As a Microsoft Dynamics AX partner focused in serving the Professional Services industries, SAG has worked with a variety of different types of project-driven organizations. It’s interesting to note the variations in how these organizations view the process of scheduling their projects and resources. Luckily, in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 we have four different approaches for this, each having its own merits depending on the general paradigm of your organization and the intricacies of the projects that you’re managing. We thought we’d highlight these options at a high level to shine some light on the pros and cons of each approach.
Many of our clients that provide project-based services have a significant volume of expense reports that flow through their organization. Some of these expenses are simply internal costs that are booked to the General Ledger, but many of these expenses are often re-billed to clients. By ensuring that your organization fully recovers these billable expenses, you can avoid incurring costs that you shouldn’t be.
Of the 1,100 or so new features in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, we thought this was one of the more impressive enhancements so we thought we’d share it with you. This has to do with really putting SharePoint front and center as an integrated collaboration platform for Dynamics AX users. So for those of you that have teams of employees working together toward a common objective, where they’re combining structured data from the ERP system with unstructured but related data (Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, etc.) this could be a very useful tool.
