Dynamics 365 financial management application capabilities
Reporting is accurate. Data integrity is intact. Data entry is optimized, so errors are reduced. Tribal Finance, our key set of cloud-based accounting applications for tribes on Dynamics 365, gives you peace-of-mind with a secure environment and a reduction of paper-based processes. Staff members perform tasks more quickly, and governance is managed under one secure, integrated system.
Any modern and robust financial system starts with the needed functionality to set up your general ledger postings, chart of accounts, recurring journals, and source codes. The differentiator: Tribal Finance comes with a powerful, flexible, and easy to use chart of accounts and dimensional structure designed to provide a robust general ledger to meet the diverse funding sources used by a tribal government. Flexibility is key, and the dimensional structure brings huge benefits to its users and provides rule definition options which add dimensional reporting to all entry types.
Get rich insight into your financials with a comprehensive analysis of data from your general ledger across intuitive interfaces. Your data = your choice. Flexibility in row and column definitions allow you to analyze your data and combine it to produce accurate financial statements and reports. We help you navigate the complexity of multi-entity government and enterprise accounting with automated reporting customized to your needs.
The complexity of fund accounting is simplified by keeping all transactions and financial statements organized in a way that meets the unique requirements of different funding sources. Satisfy the specifications for fund accounting by recording inter-fund entries for A/P, A/R and General Journals. Intuitively, the system will tabulate and post the due-to and due-from entries on your behalf – enabling users to focus on more meaningful tasks while allowing the system to automate the fund balance entries throughout the application.
Project and Grant Management
Your ability to manage grants and capital projects as they happen in Tribal Finance is a functionality designed with tribes in mind. Budgets, encumbrances, requisitions, and actuals are fully integrated with your general ledger, purchasing, reporting and accounts payable to ensure capital projects adhere to budget requirements and grants are effectively tracked and appropriately spent.
We provide your tribal government with simplified, distributed budget planning designed with the budget controls you need to stay on target with operating expenses, grant funding, HR, fixed asset, and capital budget. This is fully integrated into the system to enable encumbrance management and budgetary controls to ensure programs, departments, and grants remain in check with budget spending.
