My experience has been mixed with this platform. It does the GL accounting part fairly well. IT has limited functionality in terms of effective project management. The system reports are very basic requiring extensive external data manipulation and custom report writing. It's a reasonably priced solution.

Pros
- Low Total Cost of Ownership - Ease of implementation - Reasonable GL accounting module

Cons
- PM capabilities are very limited - Canned system reports are limited - Multi-currency financials are challenging requiring third party solutions.

Helps our team plan logistics quickly and integrate our routes efficiently for our jobs.

Pros
I love the fact that this integrates with so many things. You can iframe forms within your website to pull all your data directly into the CRM (a much cheaper option than having a developer build api connections that auto populate the information).

Cons
I would say this is a pretty expensive product compared to what is out there. Once you get over that size though, this is a good pick.

Microsoft Project Management software has pretty much had a market monopoly for many years in terms of powerful functionality. However, the choices have become more diverse without sacrificing powerful management features. Also, I have found other applications much more user-friendly with ongoing training support & superior customer service.

Pros
Functionality

Cons
Complex, not user friendly, low level of customer service, expensive.

Great ERP system, used it for project management and reporting finance. Amazing for for cost allocations, markups, and pricing. It has a strong independent Users Group. Customization is very easy and contains a lot of otions for the same. Ability to Copy/Paste into Dynamics SL has always been a strength- especially from Excel. Documentation needs some improvement though (you can find more details online, that is always there!).

The product feels good to operate and manage. The overall experience is pleasant with a few minor glitch's. But that can be ignored if you are not a big fan of extravagant UI.

Pros
Value for money. great functionality and swift response.

Customer support from microsoft is always lousy , so expect them to be a little delayed like always.

Dynamics SL - the gem of the Microsoft Dynamics line-up

Reviewed 2009-07-01
Review Source: Capterra

A well-refined product with a large worldwide user base and robust reseller channel. For project and fund-based organizations, you can't beat this product. It gets less attention than its sibling, Dynamics GP, but I think it's the hidden gem of the Microsoft Dynamics line-up.

Pros
Strong: * time & expense * project costing and allocation * billing * integration with SharePoint

Cons
Weak: * e-commerce * manufacturing and distribution functionality

Organizations that have challenging project accounting needs should definitely review this product. Very few products come close to Dynamics SL in handling these broader project accounting needs as well as Dynamics SL.

Pros
Provides flexibility for complex project based cost accounting. Flexible reporting and billing.

Cons
Improve the budgeting and forecasting.

Pros
It does a great job of job costing and recording all the detailed transactions

Cons
To many extra processing steps, example, after you have entered a cash transaction, then you have to release the cash transaction, then you have to release it from the GL, then you have to post to the GL.

It has been in use at my company for 14 years. While lacking a modern UI, it has been a good value for the investment.

Pros
The ability to develop custom software modules using their tools. We created three robust modules that integrate with core financial, project and distribution modules.

Cons
Microsoft doesn’t seem to put much investment in the product any longer. The legacy VB.Net Windows client is dated.

This is a real accounting system, if you've got people who have never used anything but Quickbooks, you're in for a big mess! If you've got real accountants and not bookkeepers, you will be VERY pleased with this product.

Pros
It interfaces with our purchase order software (Sapphire Build) and gives us the detailed job cost we were lacking from our old accounting software.

Cons
It is not very user friendly. Training is almost non existent for it, and it isn't a widely used software.
