When Dynamics GP users are looking at a way to automate some of their payroll processes, they often look at implementing a time entry or time card system that will produce an electronic file that can be used for import. Some of the time entry software has its own built-in import functionality with Dynamics GP, but the software companies that provide this functionality are in the minority and may not always be a fit for an end-user due to cost or features. Because there are a variety of ways to import time entry information into Dynamics, we recommend that customers focus on the features of the time entry software, and not on whether there is already a pre-built import to Dynamics.

An ERP system affords greater visibility and control over your business processes and ensures better compliance across operations. The centralization and automation of core functions means an easier way to monitor all aspects of business and lays a strong framework for compliance with an array of regulations. The result is greater efficiencies throughout the organization. But even the most robust ERP systems don’t always include a sales tax compliance option, leaving back-office staff to manage the host of sales tax rate, rule, boundary, and taxability regulations manually.
