8829: Cash Manager in Microsoft Dynamics SL 7.0 (1 Day)

About this Course

This one-day course explores the features and benefits of the Microsoft Dynamics SL Cash Manager module. Students discuss how to classify transactions by account type, view cash balances, reconcile bank accounts, and project cash flows.

Understanding these topics allows students to access current cash balance information instantly while entering transactions, which may help with tracking what is in the bank on a daily basis.

The course also includes: transfering funds between different cash accounts, managing money effectively while accurately displaying critical information at a moment's notice, reconciling bank statements according to schedule and business demands, and assembling daily cash balances from subsidiary databases into a "consolidated" database, so cash account balances for the entire organization are available to view in one application.

Students reconcile at the check/deposit level and enter transactions that affect cash but are not captured in other Microsoft Dynamics SL modules, such as bank service charges, wire transfers, or other cash transaction types. This is an essential course for all end-users, consultants, and implementers who want to learn about this core module of the Microsoft Dynamics SL Financial system.

Classroom training provides in-depth learning via hands-on interaction. Through demonstrations, presentations, and classroom activities, students can receive hands-on experience with instruction from our certified staff and increase productivity and efficiency by learning tips and tricks from product specialists.
