User Reviews of Fundamentals

Submitted on August 8th, 2023 by Anonymous
  1. I love the detail we can enter into Fundamentals. This provides for great reporting and downloading to Excel for line item detail. In Dynamics GP, I really liked the smart list report writer; however, the reporting options in Business Central are great. In GP, we had to have most of our reports done in Excel in order to capture multi-year grants cumulative expenditures.
  2. We have converted living in Excel to utilizing Business Central as our daily go to. Which is exactly what we wanted. We feel our data is more secure, accessible, and accurate.
  3. Tangicloud is making lots of updates/changes to keep the software with the times. It is very robust and has lots of features/modules. We truly appreciate Tangicloud listening to their clients to be able to accommodate changes that will benefit multiple clients together.
  4. It is so awesome that we can have the whole agency involved in submitting data through AP. That is one of our biggest accomplishments. Using purchase quotes and the approval system has been wonderful!
  5. With the integration of Payroll and having that connector built, we can fulfill all of our cost allocation entries to the funds. This alone has saved lots of data entry time into Excel to process those allocations.
