Microsoft Introduces Updated Management Reporter to Replace FRx

Microsoft answered the most pressing questions users have raised about FRx with introduction of a "powerful" updated version of Management Reporter, which will be initially available to Dynamics GP 2010 customers.

"We are moving into replacement mode for FRx," Guy Weismantel, director of marketing, Microsoft Dynamics ERP, told He said the new version of Management Reporter, formerly codenamed Management Reporter 2.0, will offer "a clear path to upgrade" along with "native Windows 7 integration"-two key concerns users have voiced.

He said Microsoft expects Management Reporter to be compatible with Dynamics AX 2009 sometime during the second half of this year, and with the new Dynamics NAV R2 sometime afterwards.
