If you haven’t heard the news already, Microsoft is phasing out their FRx financial reporting product. This move is part of their overall performance management vision to have a single solution for Microsoft Dynamics ERP software products and move away from their current three part solution with FRx, Forecaster for planning, budgeting, and forecasting and Microsoft Enterprise Reporting for consolidations.
As an FRx user, you can rest assured that Microsoft isn’t leaving you in a reporting lurch though. Along with the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 (formerly GP 11.0) launch later this spring, Microsoft is releasing Management Reporter (MR), the reporting engine which will be the foundation upon which future budgeting and planning functionality will be built.
FRx will continue to be supported according to the GP 10 product lifecycle. If you upgrade to GP 2010, you’ll have both FRx and MR users available to you. You can transition to MR whenever it best fits your business needs. Get Tips & Tricks for Migrating from FRx to Management Reporter.
