Microsoft Dynamics GP and SharePoint 2010 Combine to Create Optimal Functionality at Large Non-Profit Organization
Our previous blog touched on a few points about why non-profits need Microsoft Dynamics® ERP. To build on this concept, we have a great example of one of our non-profit clients here in Florida. They’ve gone above and beyond the normal ERP functionality and are realizing the benefits. Let’s take a look…
As one of the largest non-profit organizations in Florida, our client was struggling with their financial management, inventory control, and complicated day-to-day operations. They had multiple disparate systems that sometimes talked to each other, but not all the time. This caused confusion and extreme lack of insight into what was happening on a day to day basis.
We worked with our client to create a workflow with Microsoft Dynamics GP and SharePoint 2010 that fixed any disconnections. Our client handles blood donations and delivery to hospitals throughout Florida. They send out mobile units daily to receive donations. These mobile units are not connected via wifi, so they have a few solutions that help them track everything during the day, such as what supplies they used throughout the day, whether there were any discarded blood bags, etc. Once they return to the office, they are able to facilitate two quick and easy phases that pulls in and collates all relevant data.
Once those phases are complete, Microsoft Dynamics GP takes over and streamlines job costing so they can see exactly how much money it’s costing them to perform business tasks. GP also tracks and maintains inventory and accurately manages all financials.
In addition to Microsoft Dynamics GP, we are working to get them set up with SharePoint 2010 so they can connect everything throughout their organization, allowing more visibility in real-time and creating data they can rely on.
