How to Harness Technology Without Getting Trapped
Technology is a like a double-edged sword, it can offer time-saving conveniences one day and stop you in your tracks the next. There is a balance to leveraging the best that technology can give you, while not getting trapped by it.

Most of us remember using giant state and local maps to get around. Then online mapping software became popular, followed by the release of affordable GPS units. Today, nearly everyone has some sort of built-in GPS whether it's in their cars or on their smartphones. GPS technology has been a great convenience in getting people to their destinations quickly and safely, until we discover the flaw in the mapping service and get stuck on the wrong Main Street in the wrong town.

The right technology can do a world of good for your business, but the wrong technology can leave you lost or even stranded. Which is why it’s so important to take your time when considering what business management solutions you need to grow your business. It is our goal as a Microsoft Dynamics GP Partner to ensure that your business solutions are working for you, not against you. We know our software inside and out.

Let The Resource Group help you discover if you are using your Microsoft Dynamics GP solution in the best possible way.  Our onsite services such as Operational Reviews, Training and System Review Peformance Plan are all designed to help you maximize efficiency with your team and your solution.  Give us a call at 877.287.4760 to learn more.

Save Time During Your Busy Day with Management Reporter

Save time with generating and distributing reports by using the Management Reporter in your Microsoft Dynamics® ERP business management software solution. As noted in this short video, “
Microsoft Dynamics Management Reporter Report Groups Updates,” posted on YouTube, report groups were updated in Management Report 2012 CU6 to save time with report distribution maintenance activities. In this update, you can now make changes to company data and details in the report group and apply these changes to all reports in that same report group. In addition, you can generate the report group to a single location or multiple locations. Individual reports also can be set to other locations. These updates save many steps in the previous distribution process, which can save you and your team much-needed time.

Take less than two minutes of your day to watch this video and see how to save time and maintain consistent data with Management Reporter. To learn more about using Management Reporter or to make the move from FRx, contact The Resource Group at 1.877.287.4760 or email
