    I am looking for suggestions for budget software.  I've tried using Dynamics GP but I feel it is cumbersome and very manual when trying to do budget to actual reporting.

    I attended the GPUG Summit in October and looked at a couple different "add ons".

    Just wondering if there were any suggestions out there.

     I would definitely look into Dynamics Budgets! @Zubin Gidwani and his team at Dynamics Budgets would be one of the best to contact. I know that their product is pretty easy to understand and will ease your pain in the GP budget world.

    You might be interested in Solver. It is a cloud-based system that offers budgeting and reporting. Plus, there's a Starter Pack for GP users to help you cut some costs.

    Here's a link to a webinar we just did.
