  • 1.  Anyone using Project Accounting?

    If you are using Project Accounting I would love to speak with you.  I am trying to gather information about how this module works so that I can evaluate whether it will work for a certain segment of our business.  We have it, but have never turned it on, and no one in my office knows anything about what it can do and how it works.  I posted an inquiry over on the main board that lays out the specific questions I have right now, but I would love to have a general discussion about the module with someone who uses it regularly.

    Thank you!

    I would want to know your specific reasons for using it, but - in general - I cannot recommend the module unless you are looking to perform time-and-billing type services.  Even then, there are better solutions (Olympic Systems, for example).

    If you are looking to track costs, have you look at Analytical Accounting?

    You might also consider that Pam Misialek (Microsoft GP Product Manager) has stated this about the GP Project Accounting module... 

    "For example, you won't find any announcement on Project Accounting not getting new features because it's still available."

    To me, that indicates that Project Accounting is being phased out of existence and I wouldn't recommend anyone starting to use a module or product that is being phased out of existence.

    Below is a link to the forum post where Pam makes the Project Accounting statement.  Look at her response to everyone's questions, not her first post.

    We have a number of clients who use Project Accounting.  Like any module, you need to define how you want to do tracking and see if it's a fit.  We also leverage ISV solutions as well for needs outside of it's scope.

    Hi Kim,

    Thanks for your response.  Is there a charge to dialogue it with you to see if what we feel like we want to do with it would be a good fit for its capabilities and our own internal logistics?

    Thanks,
