A lesser-known method for reporting on your Microsoft Dynamics GP data is through Solver’s BI360. BI360 is an Excel-based business intelligence tool that offers out-of-the-box integration with Dynamics GP for reporting, budgeting, and dashboards. It offers several key benefits to users:
- Familiar Environment – BI360 is an Excel add-on, which means all of your reporting is designed and displayed in the same Excel environment that you are already accustomed to.
- Simple Design – No SQL knowledge is required to design your own report or budget in BI360. It’s a simple drag-and-drop interface that allows almost anyone in your organization to develop customized and effective reports quickly.
- Integration – BI360 automatically integrates with your Microsoft Dynamics GP environment and pulls data from GP in real-time when generating reports, so you never have to worry about synchronization.
- Easy Distribution – not only does BI360 give you an easy and effective medium to design and view custom reports, but also allows you to easily distribute static versions of your reports to non-BI360 users.
In a nutshell, BI360 is a simple tool that provides powerful Dynamics GP reporting in a familiar environment – what more do you need?
