The situation

As a technology company, System Source’s people are already very tech-savvy. However, Sharon Paul and Michael Marinaro of Gross Mendelsohn’s Technology Solutions Group lend a high level of specialized Microsoft Dynamics GP and Business Portal expertise to System Source.

Gross Mendelsohn helped set up System Source’s use of Business Portal, a Microsoft SharePoint-based tool, to enable employees to easily enter time and expenses in a central place. Employees code their time and expenses to the projects they are working on. Employees’ time and expenses go into both System Source’s payroll system and Microsoft Dynamic GP’s Project Accounting module simultaneously. Reports from the system give management a clear picture of each project’s profitability.

Employees also use Business Portal to view paychecks and modify their HR information via a web interface. The Technology Solutions Group also assists System Source with Microsoft Dynamics GP installations, upgrades and payroll updates, as well as GP reporting and support issues.

In our client's words

“Members of Gross Mendelsohn’s Technology Solutions Group, specifically Michael Marinaro and Sharon Paul, have a very high-level knowledge of Microsoft Dynamics GP and Business Portal. That expertise, coupled with their quality of service, is what keeps us happy as a client.

They’re flexible and willing to work in the evening and on weekends to minimize downtime for our staff. We’ve also used Gross Mendelsohn’s client help desk on occasion and the people who staff it are very resourceful.

I’m very happy with the help I get from the Technology Solutions Group.”
