Advanced Time and Expense Tracking for Microsoft Dynamics
Regardless of industry, company type or corporate mission, if a company needs to track costs on projects, they need a solid time and expense tracking application. Time and expense data entered into a system like this can be used for project tracking, budgets, payroll, tracking accruals, and the data can be pulled into other systems for billing vendors, payroll and more. Many companies find that the time tracking functionality within Dynamics is insufficient for their needs. In this presentation by Journyx, we’ll show you our application and provide real-world case studies on customers successfully using Journyx and Dynamics together.

EDI Debunked: What Really Counts in Winning GP Business
The role of an ISV partner is to help you secure and keep Dynamics users and EDI is no exception. With the release of GP 2013R2, it’s critical that your EDI partner’s strategy evolves to compliment the ERP’s increasing functionality. If you’re relying on older approaches to EDI, you’re jeopardizing new business opportunities and customer satisfaction. By understanding the difference that a modern approach provides and industry trends, you can successfully deliver an EDI solution that meets client requirements and produces satisfied customers. Debunk what you think you know about EDI and learn how today’s approach helps partners win business.
