Microsoft Great Plains FA: Fixed Assets – Overview for Consultants

Microsoft Business Solutions Great Plains is marketed for mid-size companies as well as Navision (which has very good positions in Europe and emerging markets where it can be easily localized).

Great Plains Fixed Assets Management module is a robust tool that can help you manage your assets effectively. It integrates perfectly with other Great Plains modules like General Ledger, Purchase Order Processing, and Payables Management ensuring accuracy while reducing redundant data entry.

This is useful for depreciating, retiring, or simply changing the information for a set of assets with a single click. Great Plains' intuitive graphical user interface makes it easy to access supporting data on assets, books, etc. The latest versions of Great Plains Fixed Asset also comes with a total of 16 depreciation methods covering diverse industries for compatibility with company preferences. You also have the option to back depreciation out, recalculate, add additional depreciable amount, and project depreciation for years ahead for any number of assets in your book.
