Efficient Implementation Methodologies
Our team of Microsoft Dynamics implementation specialists utilizes a unique implementation methodology which allows us the time to understand how the business operates and to provide a solution to best fit the needs of our clients.
The RSM implementation methodology consists of five phases that span the project lifecycle. These phases are consistent across all our engagements though the specific tasks and deliverables are dependent on the business objectives, project constraints and engagement scope. Project management stretches over all phases of the engagement to keep the project on schedule and provide quality assurance on the product delivered to the client.
- Phase 1 — Initiate
The Initiate phase is critical to the ultimate success of the project; during this time, we plan the implementation and ensure that all team members have a clear understanding of the project goals, expectations and timelines.
- Phase 2 — Analyze and Design
This phase quickly follows the Initiate phase, typically happening on the same day as the Project Kickoff Meeting. During this phase, the RSM project team develops detailed insight into your organization’s needs and how the new system will be configured to best support them.
- Phase 3 — Build and Validate
Using the design document as a blueprint, configuration of the new system begins. A working model of the production system is prepared, and the process flows, data conversions, reports and customizations are tested.
- Phase 4 — Deploy
Once agreement is reached that the system is ready for deployment, the configuration is migrated to the production environment, end-user training is conducted and final Go-Live preparations are completed.
- Phase 5 — Operate
Once the system is operational for 30 days, a project closing process is completed to confirm that the application was delivered as expected and the terms of the engagement were fulfilled.

RSM’s Microsoft Dynamics ERP Services
RSM’s Microsoft Dynamics ERP Services include:
Design, Implementation and Support
Improve visibility, scalability, process efficiency and promote growth
Even if you have a non-integrated, highly customized or outdated ERP system, you may have decided to not make changes the last several years. That’s understandable. But with the business climate improving, now may be the time to make that investment in your organization’s future growth.
Perhaps you put off the decision because you fear conversion will be painful. It may be comforting to know that conversion horror stories are preventable when you choose a strategic partner who works to know you and your business.
At RSM, our ERP team members are business analysts who really understand your industry and processes – they’re not just installers of software. Using a customized, flexible implementation approach, they know how to head off conversion issues before they occur. And they’ll help you maximize the value of your information systems and create a competitive advantage to help you meet your strategic objectives.
Avoid business interruption by fine-tuning your systems
If you’re experiencing slow system performance, or the information you need simply isn’t easily available due to cumbersome and ineffective reporting tools, your hardware may be at the end of its life cycle, and it might be time to consider optimizing your current systems.
Over time, your ERP systems can begin to have performance issues. Like a PC that starts to slow down due to adware, fragmented disks or viruses, your ERP system may need professional help to optimize and sustain system performance and effectiveness. Use of our optimization and performance engineering services over time may even help to prolong the usable life of your core system(s).
Keeping your systems in optimal running condition requires technical expertise from a variety of disciplines. RSM’s ERP consultants aren’t just technicians, they’re business analysts with both broad and deep knowledge of the systems we support – experts who understand your business and how important it is for your systems to provide top-notch performance and efficient reporting tools.
We’ll help you avoid the unnecessary downtime and loss of productivity that can hurt your business and your bottom line.
Access the necessary technical skills, expertise for complex upgrades
System upgrades provide you with access to the latest software features – improvements that could make your decision-making easier, business processes flow more smoothly and provide more tools to grow your business.
Moving your business forward can be easier if you’re staying current and taking advantage of your software’s newest versions. The “hang-up” generally involves customization – the number and complexity of custom reports or unique business processes that could complicate the upgrade process.
To avoid the possibility a “glitch” will occur, our consultants spend the time to understand you and your business. And our keen business sense and proven methodology helps mitigate the risks of even the most complex situations. Our six-step process begins with planning and ends with user training on the new features and functions of your software so your staff can take advantage of improvements from day one.
Don’t let a complex upgrade scare you. We have a large staff of technical professionals available to you locally and nationally.
We’ve got you covered.
Extend your business systems to improve ROI and adoption
Our ERP software customization services can help you improve user acceptance, enhance process flow and extend the overall functionality of your organization’s business systems. The result can mean a better experience for users and improved system ROI.
Improve productivity. Increase visibility. Maximize functionality
If you’re not getting the total functionality you expected from your new ERP system, or your current system was satisfactory initially but now you’d like to eliminate disparate systems, it’s time for a system integration plan.
More often than not, standard ERP systems don’t come with all the unique functionality and features businesses need. Our integration consultants solve that problem by providing “open-architecture” system design and programming that enable you to seamlessly integrate your custom and best-of-breed systems with your core ERP system.
Microsoft SharePoint Integration
Extend your business productivity with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server. Use SharePoint to improve operational efficiency and avoid the hunt for information
RSM specializes in extending Microsoft Dynamics through Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS or SharePoint).
SharePoint is a collaboration platform that uniformly extends applications across your company. RSM implements SharePoint as a presentation layout to connect the systems used across your business. Our consultants understand business processes from the point at which a customer makes an inquiry to the completion of the operation.
We have an average of over fifteen years of development experience and have implemented solutions to:
- Simplify complex business flows
- Create visibility and accountability to key business processes
- Automate processes that initiate tasks and alert individuals to action
- Manage common and individual areas most effectively
- Create, manage and share documents, records and Web content
- Integrate seamlessly with Microsoft Dynamics and Microsoft Outlook, Office 365, Windows 7 and more.

Extend your Microsoft Dynamics ERP Implementation with Accelerators
RSM offers several accelerators to extend your Microsoft Dynamics solutions:
For Microsoft Dynamics GP
SmartStart for Microsoft Dynamics GP
Our SmartStart program accelerates the benefits that your ERP system can provide, including:
- Gaining control: Increase financial transparency with integrated systems, shared data and drill-down capabilities that give you visibility into your transactions and audit trails.
- Automating key business processes: Improve efficiencies, data accuracy and staff productivity by leveraging out-of-the-box functionality, including internal controls and flexible reporting tools.
- Increasing visibility: Go beyond basic reporting with powerful self-service analysis and business intelligence tools that help your people work more proactively, allowing you to have the most pertinent information to support business investments and decisions.
Materials Management Accelerator
To help health care providers respond to these challenges, the Microsoft Collaborative Health initiative provides a framework for streamlining the way medical information is created, collected, accessed and shared. The goal: to enable clinicians, researchers and administrators to work together in integrated collaborative teams to deliver affordable health care. Microsoft Dynamics GP can play a key role in helping health care providers achieve collaborative health. A fully integrated and highly extensible financial and business management solution, Microsoft Dynamics GP provides the tools and infrastructure health care organizations need to transform the way they record, track and access critical business information. Microsoft Dynamics GP is also an ideal choice for integrated health care delivery systems that need to find a more cost- effective way to standardize and exchange financial information between their entities.
RSM Support Program Accelerator
This tool automates the collection and generation of detailed database, security and customization information about a Microsoft Dynamics GP installation. This is useful for general IT documentation purposes, planning upgrades and external compliance requirements. This program was created to assist users in documenting their Dynamics GP processing environment and determining which roles and tasks allow user access to windows and reports.
Financial Tools Suite Accelerator
RSM’s Financial Tools Suite Accelerator is a collection of dexterity programs designed to assist in performing a variety of import, export and table maintenance tasks for the Microsoft Dynamics GP accounting application. Among other functions, the accelerator includes the ability to import general ledger (GL) journal entries.
Local Payroll Tax Recalculation Accelerator
Many local governments have instituted payroll taxes that have monthly maximums. For weekly, bi-weekly and semi-monthly payrolls, this presents a requirement to check previous payments during the month—which Microsoft Dynamics GP does not support natively. The RSM Local Payroll Tax Recalculation Accelerator automates this look-back process and automatically adjusts local tax deductions accordingly.
For Microsoft Dynamics SL
Microsoft Dynamics SL for Government Contractors
With more than 300 clients nationwide, our Government Contracting team specializes in your technology business solutions needs. Our experience and knowledge will help you improve the flow of information and manage your financial accounting needs.
RSM Dynamics SL Government Contractor Reports Accelerator
As the leading provider for Microsoft Dynamics SL solutions to the government contracting industry, RSM has developed a report package for Dynamics SL, which fills a gap in the standard reporting needs. These reports pull information directly from your Dynamics SL data, ensuring accuracy in your reports. The report accelerator includes job summary reports at actual rates, with the capability for unlimited indirect rate calculations.

"We were on our third reseller at the time of choosing RSM. We vetted what worked and what definitely did not work. We were looking for someone who went above and beyond not just integrating the system but understanding truly what we do as a company, where we’re going and what our vision is. Instead of telling us what to do, they actually helped us and understood what we wanted and worked with us. It was a big difference from the prior two companies we had worked with."

This has been a tremendous experience for us and we could not have hoped for a more successful outcome.”
— Darren Hirsowitz, Director of Finance, Flagler System Inc.
“After interviewing several implementation teams, RSM was selected because they too were CPAs and had a local office that would support our implementation. I have a full time job and wanted my hand held during this process. RSM made us this promise and completely delivered. Jeff Bloch, the lead consultant on the project, took full ownership of the process and led the effort. The implementation has been successfully rolled out to all 19 facilities and was completely adopted by the work force and field. I have not heard any complaints!”
