Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Dynamics SL

Microsoft Dynamics SL is being used throughout our whole company on a daily basis. It is used from service techs, to sales people, and to accounting. For example, I am in general ledger accounting in my company and I use this throughout the entire day. If it is making journal entries or looking up balance sheets and trial balances, it is easy to access each of these in a quickly and accurate fashion. I also use this to close the books each month for my company, making that part of my job easy and accurate as well.
  • Able to create and post journal entries accurately.
  • Balance sheets and detail general ledgers formats are easy to look at which makes it easier to tie out everything at the end of each month.
  • You can use it in many different departments. If it is tax, AR, AP, or general accounting. Makes everyone's job easier and accurate and we are all able to work together.
  • When the server is busy, it seems to slow down a lot and is sometimes hard to post transactions and look up information.
  • If a problem goes wrong for some reason on one person's end, it could effect everyone in the office as everyone uses similar sources on Microsoft Dynamics SL.
  • Applications I use on this seem to disappear from time to time. IT department seems to always find the error though.
  • Increased employee efficiency.
  • Easy to tie reconciliations with bank statements. If you are off, it is easy to find where and why you are off.
  • Able to see what others are posting in case you have questions on certain items.
I have used QuickBooks when I was in college and I did enjoy it mainly because that was my first experience with an accounting product like that. I did not switch to Microsoft Dynamics; it was the product used in the first company I received a job in. Although I did not select it, I am glad I was able to use it with my company. I mainly enjoy the way everything is broken out and how various employees are able to use and work together on this on a daily basis.
If you are in general accounting or even different financial positions, I recommend using this software. I have used QuickBooks in the past and although I did enjoy it, I would prefer Microsoft Dynamics SL over this. It is broken out in categories which makes it easy to find what you are looking for. Once you get used to where everything is (does not take too long), you will not be disappointed and your daily routine will be much easier and accurate!
