If you’re a Microsoft Dynamics veteran, then you know the history of the various financial reporting tools that have been available to Dynamics users. Take FRx, for example, which dates all the way back to 1991 and was actually quite popular. But be that as it may, it was discontinued in 2011 and replaced by Management Reporter (MR). Let’s just say that MR had its detractors.
Then in 2016, Microsoft announced the end of feature development and support for the aging Management Reporter solution for Dynamics, leaving more than a few clients wondering what would come next.
