Financial management that brings it all together

Microsoft Dynamic GP sharply reduces the time and effort needed for key accounting tasks. The solution also provides easy access and rich analysis of integrated, updated information and connects smoothly with operations across your entire business.

Manage your financials in the way that best suits your business with unlimited budget tracking, flexible period or month end closing processes and definable multi-currency management. Expansive capabilities embrace all the financial activity that moves through your business – from general ledger to inter-company postings, purchasing to project management, expense management to electronic banking.

A broad range of reporting and business intelligence tools provide visibility into accurate, current information that’s key to effective decision making.

Insight: A complete view of your business

Decision makers and employees have the power to see exactly what’s happening within your sports or leisure organisation. Users are able to:

  • Monitor all operations, costs and revenues across commercial, media and event activities, with built in drill-down, enquiry and reporting capabilities.
  • Proactively drill-down to individual event analysis.
  • Define and deliver personalised views of key performance metrics that enable decision makers to quickly assess current conditions and monitor underlying trends.
  • Easily create, update and modify all reports and forms your organisation uses with Microsoft Dynamics GP Report Writer.
  • Build customisable financial reports with Microsoft FRx, including personalised packages that consolidate Microsoft Office documents, Microsoft FRx reports and other formats into a single file for delivery to decision makers and use flexible scheduling and delivery options to publish reports.

Eliminate the learning curve with easy integration into Microsoft Office:

  • Share budgeting data with Microsoft Office Excel, with the ability to make full use of Office Excel-based reporting and budgeting capabilities.
  • Highlight your financials in vivid detail with the ability to transform Microsoft Dynamics GP information into Excel pivot tables and charts with a single click.
  • Drive accurate information into users’ hands more quickly and eliminate the need to juggle applications by allowing them to locate and access Microsoft Dynamics GP data while working within Microsoft Office.
  • Easily populate Microsoft Office Word form letters and other documents with up-to-date customer and supplier information, using simple step-by-step instructions.
  • Reduce paper-based processes by delivering online self-service applications, requisitions and online queries and enable managers to complete common tasks quickly by sending email alerts when items are ready for approval.

Here's how we've worked with one sports organisation:

Financial Management System Pushes MK Dons Leagues Ahead

Financial Management System Pushes MK Dons Leagues Ahead

MK Dons FC partnered with JMC IT to implement an innovative Microsoft Dynamics GP finance and reporting solution to adopt a more strategic, holistic approach.

When JMC IT approached Inter MK recommending a financial management system that could consolidate each of their income streams under one insightful piece of software, senior management immediately recognised the many benefits this could bring.

Echoing the wider business aim of an integrated multi-functioning venue, Microsoft Dynamics GP has the capacity to coordinate revenue streams across multiple business operations and timescales. With JMC's proven experience within the football and hospitality industries, the Salford-based firm was contracted to implement Microsoft Dynamics GP and was able to do so at an impressively fast pace.

Read the full MK Dons FC case study.



Having worked in the football industry for a number of years, I’ve used many systems of financial management, but JMC’s solution is by far the most efficient I’ve seen. Rather than spending hours compiling data across various revenue sources, I’m now able to use this time to analyse what the data shows, which is a far more valuable role for me to play within the business.

Group Financial Director, MK Dons.
