Global Dimensions Expander
by Calsoft Systems
Convert your shortcut dimensions into global dimensions to turbocharge your data analytics.
Have you found yourself wishing that Dynamics 365 Business Central provided more than just 2 global dimensions? Calsoft’s “Global Dimension Expander” transforms your shortcut dimensions into global dimensions, turbocharging your data analytics capabilities.
Business Central’s Dimensions
Dimensions is a filtering feature that allows you to slice and dice your data the way you need it. Out of the box, Business Central provides 8 shortcut dimensions, but only 2 of those are global dimensions. Global dimensions are especially powerful for accounting because they filter/analyze your data across all your modules in Business Central. Shortcut dimensions are limited to a single module.
Limitations of Business Central’s Dimensions
Once you start using Business Central, you may soon start to feel the limitations of having only 2 global dimensions. For example, if you’ve assigned ‘branch office’ and ‘dept.’ as your global dimensions,, you’re already maxed out. But it’s likely you’ll want to see your data sliced in other ways (such as by customer group).
Calsoft's global dimension expander solves this limitation. This valuable add-on converts regular shortcut dimensions to act like global dimensions. With the expander, you’ll have 6 additional global dimensions that will analyze all your data across AP, AR, and GL modules.
With these added global dimensions, you can easily pull up a comprehensive analysis across the entire company using the categories that most useful for your business. Our expander will enable you to pull up analysis in the same consistent way, using the same dimensions, across all the modules in the system. You will no longer have to put together a piecemeal analysis report by setting up shortcut dimensions in different areas of your ERP system.
Analyzing your data using more global dimensions gives you unparalleled visibility into your company so you can make better informed business decisions.
