Case Study - Manufacturer’s Financial Reporting

The Challenge

A defense contractor required a financial database solution for its five manufacturing plants to replace a system which managed accounting information across its business units. The new system needed to integrate with Microsoft Dynamics, including a new process for accounting’s month-end close and new reports to show sales and profitability of products across business units and production facilities.
