How to Handle Multi-Company for Microsoft Dynamics SL versus GP
Having worked for Solomon Software for 9 years, people assume that I prefer Dynamics SL over Dynamics GP. If there is any truth to this, it is only because I know Dynamics SL better. I do think Dynamics GP is pretty special.
Dynamics GP impresses in the financial module and integration tool areas. If
there is one financial module area where Dynamics SL is superior to Dynamics
GP, out of the box, it is in the area of Multi-Company.
In Dynamics SL, you can have one database housing as many companies as you'd like.
You can set up rules within GL, AR, or AP to initiate automated due-to, and due-from type entries simply by using an account where rules exist to automated the creation of offsetting Journal Entries. The entries keep the companies' balance sheets in balance.
