Just considering a change to your project accounting and financial management system often results in having fears and anxieties. Will we be able to find and agree on the right solution? Will our implementing partner really listen to our needs? Will we find a good solution out of the box or will we need to do a lot of customizations? Can we continue business as usual, or will we need to make major adaptations? Will we be able to do financial reporting the way we need to without the hassle?
Rebecca Harrington, VP of Finance & Corporate Controller at Hydro Resources, shares how her company overcame their fears through good software and the expertise of their new software partner.
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.

It is where opportunity and innovation meet to deliver real business value and truly amazing customer experiences. It’s the chance to make key business connections and to discover the full potential of Microsoft Dynamics solutions.
Steve Toth, President of Synergy Business Solutions, is speaking at two sessions on Microsoft Dynamics SL, one on how Dynamics SL empowers users to easily handle federal government compliance and another on the power of budgeting in Dynamics SL.
Find out what’s possible with various types of project budgeting in Project Controller for Microsoft Dynamics SL. Understand options for direct budgeting versus budgeting by revisions and how the Project Budgeting module processes budget revisions of original budget, estimated budget, and forecasted budget at completion.
Do you use the Project module for government contracting? In this session, we will discuss how to utilize the capabilities of the General Ledger, Project Controller and Allocator modules to manage and allocate indirect costs to projects. Understand how to develop indirect rates, configure the Indirect Rate Calculator, use the new Close Project Year at Actual in Microsoft Dynamics SL 2011 FP1 feature, and configure the Government Contractor Reports.
At the Microsoft Dynamics SL User Group Conference in San Diego this year, I also had a chance to ask Kevin Sullivan, CFO of Vista Engineering Technologies, what problems their company has solved since the implementation of Dynamics SL. He shares breakthroughs eliminating manual accounting processes and project overruns, improving cash flow, managing employees’ time and expense on projects, increasing profitability, and passing government accounting-system audits.
