the possibility of acquiring General Ledger entries with the matching between accounts and cost types and
dimensions and cost centers.

How Tempo Zero COA helps you

It often happens that companies have the need to manage their business with management information
linked to forecast data or to areas other than accounting ones.

An example of this are sales and purchase data or the internal values linked to resources activities, such as salaries, travel and management costs, which are provided in a more detailed form or in a more organized form by cost types and cost centers.

In the Business Central standard, the only possibility of entering these additional details would be to
prepare the data in an external medium (the classic Excel sheet or sources of non-accounting movements)
and then set up a manual recording in the industrial accounting.

TEMPO ZERO COA adds to Dynamics 365 Business Central the capability to define custom sources and rules
to acquire cost entries from various sources.
