The Dynamics GP Commandments: Know Thy Self, and Thy Spending Patterns

In my previous life as a Controller, and later as a CFO, I devised a series of internal metrics based on data in Dynamics GP to better understand both the company and the accounting and finance function. We were experiencing a period of tremendous growth in a small organization and it was important to try to understand how many people we needed to meet the business requirements without over-hiring.

We built a series of reports showing the number of AP transactions and checks we processed on a weekly basis, to give us a sense of how many transactions and checks an individual could process. The dollar amount didn't matter, since processing a one-dollar transaction takes about as much work as a $100,000 entry.
