Altus Dynamics CRM is a fabulous tool that meets our needs. Where we identify gaps, we can quickly and easily configure the system to meet those needs. Altus Dynamics as a partner were excellent at helping us get the system set up initially to meet our needs, though the lack of function specific training meant that we had to ensure resources on our end to learn through some trial and error at times. That said, Dynamics CRM resources are bountiful on the internet through community forums and groups and questions can often be solved within minutes of searching for the item.

Pros

Sparkrock

  • Integrates finance with payroll. Many solutions still run these as separate functions and this was one of the deciding factors for King's when purchasing Microsoft NAV in 2005.
  • Altus has added an employee web app that seamlessly connects the outside 'users' to the information they require.
  • HR position management has taken the many details of an employee in this environment and allowed each position to be tracked individually.

Cons

Sparkrock

  • The scheduling module is missing a few key parts that would enhance our employee's use of the system.
  • Payroll is not yet stable and there is difficulty posting payroll.
  • Some of the pay controls do not work to the ability that we would like them to.

Alternatives Considered

Sparkrock

We chose Altus Dynamics ERP because it was the most cost effective choice and the only solution that integrated payroll with finance at that time. We looked at BAS and Peoplesoft at the time and neither could compete.

Return on Investment

Sparkrock

  • As a technician it's hard for me to say what effect the ROI has had on our organization, however our finance team seems satisfied on it. We look forward to deploying the staff dashboards for better financial tracking throughout our whole organization.
