Synergy Part of Microsoft’s New GovCon Alliance; Crafting Forward-looking Solutions for Government Contractors

Alliance to serve government contractors

On June 16, 2014, Microsoft announced the formation of a special GovCon Alliance, a cross-section of Microsoft Dynamics partners with deep experience and understanding of the unique needs of government contractors. With our expertise in solving government-compliance issues with Dynamics SL for midsize companies (from 50 to 2,000 employees), Microsoft invited Synergy Business Solutions to join the Alliance.

The effort is part of a new phase in ours and other Dynamics partners’ ongoing effort to help contractors to the U.S. federal government operate more efficiently, respond more quickly to shifts in federal spending, and comply with a range of regulatory requirements, including those established by FAR, CAS, DCAA, and DCMA, as well as various other audits.

Synergy joins with Microsoft pursuing the guiding principle of this new phase: Compliance and Agility. You no longer have to choose one or the other. For example, Synergy’s solution, Dynamics SL, clearly boosts a project-based company’s or a make-to-order manufacturer’s business agility through its powerful project management and accounting modules. And for government contractors, it goes one large leap further. It easily handles indirect cost pools and rules-based allocations to projects and cost objectives. Or, as we like to say, it’s “Compliance Made Easier.”

To see specifics on what Synergy Business Solutions adds to this powerful Alliance, visit our Government Contractor Solutions pages, which are chock-full of resources, including an on-demand webinar, white paper, and colorful infographic.

Synergy Prepares for Microsoft Convergence 2013

Every year, Synergy attends Microsoft’s Convergence, a conference designed for Microsoft partners and their clients. Convergence has a plethora of informative sessions and other creative ways Dynamics clients can learn how to extend the power of their solution across all areas of their business. They also get a first look at new product releases and hear about future plans for their software. Last year, 10 of our Dynamics SL clients attended Convergence in Houston, Texas.

At this year’s 2013 Convergence in New Orleans starting next week (March 18-21), we’ll be joined by 12 clients. One of them, Kevin Sullivan, CFO of Vista Engineering will be speaking at two sessions, “Getting Ahead with Microsoft Dynamics SL” and “Extreme Makeover! Dynamics SL Edition,” on how Vista Engineering has taken Dynamics SL to the next level. The keynote speaker at this year’s Convergence is Kofi Annan, the former Secretary-General of the United Nations!
