Extending Microsoft Dynamics SL With Unanet and SL Connect

Visit Website View Our Posts

Microsoft Dynamics SL already delivers a huge toolbox of business management solutions that are specifically designed for project-driven organizations, but its functionality is extended even further by thousands of independent software vendor (ISV) solutions that have been developed for use with SL. Whatever unique business management needs you might have, now or in the future, if Microsoft Dynamics SL doesn't cover them already, chances are there are ISVs out there that do, integrated to work seamlessly with SL.

Today we'll take a look at Unanet's SL Connect, which released a new version in late May. SL Connect delivers complete integration between Unanet's market-leading professional services automation (PSA) solution and Microsoft Dynamics SL. Unanet's PSA solution provides initial opportunity planning and resource forecasting through detailed planning and staff scheduling, time and expense capture, and real-time reporting. The main customers for this integration between Unanet and Microsoft Dynamics SL include consulting firms, research groups, non-profit organizations, and government contractors.

The new version of SL Connect includes the following new features:
• The ability to import fixed price revenue items.
• Greater ability to configure fields imported for projects and people.
• Greater ability to write and invoke custom functionality.

Steve Bittner, Unanet's Vice President of Professional Services, says, "SL Connect unleashes the combined power of Unanet and Microsoft Dynamics SL by tightly coupling the two systems. SL Connect eliminates the need for manual synchronization and through its robust configuration provides a variety of options to our customers."

But Unanet is just one more example of the thousands of specialized ISVs that extend Microsoft Dynamics SL. Whatever your industry, however unique your business, Microsoft Dynamics SL can be tailored and extended to meet your needs.
