Portland, OR (PRWEB) November 25, 2013
Microsoft partner, Synergy Business Solutions, announced today that NuScale Power, based in Portland, Oregon, selected Synergy to implement and support Microsoft Dynamics SL in an upgrade of their project accounting and financial management system. A developer of safe, modular, commercial, nuclear-power technology, NuScale chose Dynamics SL over several other ERP systems for its superior project-management and accounting capabilities and because it will help them fully comply with government-contract cost accounting requirements.
"Before Dynamics SL, we couldn’t capture costs by projects, let alone tasks," said Julie Adelman, Controller at NuScale. "We had a manual, error-prone process that was very time intensive. Now all the information is in one place and the process is automatic, which has saved so much time and ensured accuracy."
"Dynamics SL fits NuScale’s needs to a tee," said Jered Cady, Executive Vice President of Synergy Business Solutions. "The automation of financials makes their accounting department a better team. SL’s project accounting takes the complexity out of managing projects and they can now pursue federal contracts with confidence their system will pass audits."
"With Dynamics SL, we know we’ll be capable of producing the proper accounting and reporting required by the Department of Energy," Adelman added. "For example, segregating direct and indirect costs, and eventually, whatever is required by purchasers of our reactor design."
NuScale’s accounting-system evaluation, selection, and implementation project was led by Syte Consulting Group, Inc., an Oregon-based business and technology consulting firm. "We quickly saw how Microsoft Dynamics SL coupled with Synergy’s project accounting expertise was a great match to meet NuScale’s needs," said Erin Koss, Principal of Syte. "With our broad business and systems background and dedication to communication and collaboration, we were the ideal partner for both NuScale and Synergy."
"In collaboration with Syte, Synergy took the time to understand our business and configure the system accordingly," Adelman said. "Since our ‘go-live,’ Synergy support is always here to guide us, whether remotely or on-site."
NuScale also contracted with Redstone Government Consulting, an industry-leading government compliance and accounting consulting firm, to evaluate NuScale’s Dynamics SL configuration for compliance with the U.S. Government’s pre-award accounting system criteria. Their review noted the system was implemented in a manner to meet those criteria, which is necessary for an award of a U.S. Government contract. Dynamics SL’s ease of configuration and impressive flexibility will allow NuScale to simultaneously meet the requirements of both their private commercial customers and the complex regulatory requirements of their U.S. Government customers.
With a successful implementation of Microsoft’s flagship ERP solution for project-based companies and government contractors, as well as Synergy’s ongoing support, NuScale Power is in a much better position to grow.
