Advanced planning and reporting functionality from California-based software firm Solver is available to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance users.
As part of a strategic cooperation agreement with Microsoft, Solver has developed QuickStart, an add-on for Dynamics 365 Finance, that it says enables customers to access its forecasting, budgeting and reporting solution in “as little as one day”.
“With our Solver cloud planning and reporting platform and the new two-way QuickStart integration to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance, our goal is to change the game of planning by making it very easy for finance teams to manage annual budgeting and reiterative forecasting processes across an organisation's silos of information,” said Tad Remington, chief commercial officer at Solver.
Microsoft technology-based features of the Solver solution include availability on global Azure data centres, use of Azure Active Directory for single sign-on, cloud-connected Excel add-in for flexible report and input form design, and out-of-the box Power BI connectors for professional dashboards.
“At Microsoft, we’re laser-focused on empowering the office of finance and their counterparts across the organisation to drive productivity and business performance with innovative and secure cloud-based financial applications,” said Georg Glantschnig, general manager of Microsoft Dynamics 365. “Solver delivers deep corporate performance management directly integrated into Dynamics 365 Finance.”
