How Three Real Companies Save Paper Using Dynamics GP


    Email | Print

    Go Green! Save a Tree! Please Recycle.

    Of course, many of us are “paperless” in the small things – why write notes when you can just send an email or a text message? You don’t write your appointments in a planner, it goes in your electronic calendar, and so on. However, when it comes to communicating in groups, in teams, and analyzing complex information, many companies still rely on the tried-and-true method: Print It!

    Bu the truth is, printing that huge report is costing you money. Not just the paper – it’s a major productivity killer.

    Let’s hear what a few of our small-to-medium enterprise clients have to say about how they leverage Dynamics GP to use less paper:

    Church Homes: Stopped Printing 75,000 Pages a Year

    “At one point on our AS400 system, between GL Activity, Fixed Asset, and Payroll reports, I calculated that we printed 75,000 pages annually.  Now we don’t print anything, we just save to PDF in Dynamics GP. Plus, we no longer need to look in physical binders to get historical data. Now the reports are searchable and everybody can access them.”

    Innovative Medical Products: Online SSRS Portal Saves 3 Days and 500 Sheets of Paper Monthly

    IMP needed a way for its 35 outside sales reps to see their commission data in real time. In the past, checks were mailed out monthly with a consolidation report to show their commission calculation, and a second report of new invoices in the system. It took one IMP employee three days each month to print, sort, staple, stuff, and mail the 500+ pages.

    Rich Larkin, an experienced Microsoft Dynamics GP user, decided to build an online portal using Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS). The sales reps now receive their checks electronically via ACH transfer, then securely log into the online site to see how their checks were calculated. “Microsoft Dynamics GP is so flexible. The SSRS report was up and running in about a week,” says Larkin.

    Beekley: Paperless Process Creates Stress Free Environment

    “We’ve taken our process green by implementing a paperless process using the PaperSave add-on product.  This has created a stress-free environment for our associates and has allowed them to participate in continuous training for providing world-class customer care to our customers.”

    There you have it, real businesses that are turning to Dynamics GP to be more environmentally friendly and save themselves a ton of time and stress too.
