Journyx Improves Time Entry with Dynamics GP for Etelligent Customers

What Journyx did for us:

The integration between Dynamics GP and Journyx is great as it removes redundant data entry and streamlines the process. It works like the Business Portal timesheet application should work.

Their Story

Etelligent, a Microsoft Dynamics reseller out of Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta, is known for providing top-notch customer service by way of fully-certified consultants, help desk support and customer training, resulting in a high client retention rate. Microsoft awarded the ESI team with a gold-certified partnership for Microsoft Dynamics and ESI has consistently been in the top 10 percent standing for sales and support among all Dynamics partners across the globe.

Jesse Byam, Vice President at Etelligent, states, “Etelligent sets itself apart because we provide vertical solutions that match up to our clients’ industries. We are strong in oil and gas field service organizations as well as non-profit associations. We work to understand the client’s business so we can provide the best solution for their needs. Most importantly, we put the customer first and do everything we can to ensure our customers success through a partnership where transparency and trust are key.”

Etelligent and Journyx have partnered to offer the best time tracking and expense solution to clients with Journyx enterprise time and expense management software for Microsoft Dynamics GP and NAV. Byam believes this partnership makes sense estimating that 75% of clients seek a third-party integration for time tracking and 100% use a third-party integration for expense tracking.

Etelligent specializes in Microsoft Dynamics GP, NAV and CRM. In regards to the shortcomings of the Dynamics products in terms of time and expense tracking, Byam states, “The most common complaints we hear are around matching the workflow to the business processes. Right now, the flexibility is just not there. For example, there’s no ability to have more than one level of approval or multiple approvers. Also, the workflow engine in GP was previously based on SharePoint so you had to have Share-Point for it to work. In GP 2015, Business Portal is not supported so your options are even more limited.”

Byam believes that Journyx is a good fit for Dynamics users because “users can create approval workflows based on business process and drivers, including workflows based on divisions, amounts, managers, etc. All of these workflows can be configured to have multi-level approvals. The integration between Dynamics GP and Journyx is great as it removes redundant data entry and streamlines the process. It works like the Business Portal timesheet application should work.”

Etelligent strongly believes that Microsoft Dynamics will be the ERP solution of choice for many years to come. According to Byam, “Microsoft Dynamics is a great system and provides a lot of core functionality that you just don’t see in other products. For example, the ability to run Dynamics GP or NAV in the cloud as well as on MS Azure means companies can get a system in the environment that works for them, spend less time worrying about infrastructure and more time running efficient busi-nesses. I see the future of Dynamics as being very bright, Microsoft products are becoming increasingly mobile which grants organizations the capacity to work where, when and how the business works. The ability to build apps for GP and NAV is going to be a game-changer and I can’t wait to see what technology moves into the product with the next few releases.”
