The Arizona Diamondbacks have seen many successes in their sixteen-year history in the MLB, winning five National Leagues West titles, one National League pennant, and the 2001 World Series. From the field to the finance department, these successes could not be achieved without a complete organization effort. Just as on the field, the Diamondbacks needed to find a piece from outside the organization—Brittenford ExpenseConnect—to ensure success on the team.
Tailor Made Double Play: Dynamics GP and Concur
Early on, the Diamondbacks chose Concur’s innovative travel and expense management solution to improve the reporting of 75 scouts, operations staff, and front office executives, and took advantage of Microsoft Dynamics GP to manage the finances of the organization. These two solutions, powerful and intuitive in their own respective industries, had one flaw—integration.
Chris James, the Diamondbacks’ Director of Accounting, recognized this problem, stating, “Concur was our first step toward moving away from paper-based expense reporting; but getting data into Microsoft Dynamics GP required hand-keying multiple lines of data for each expense report.”
Manual entry of every report took time, something that professional sports organizations’ offices don’t have—especially when there is an easier solution available.
Seeking a cost- and time-effective answer, the Finance department scoped out the project and handed it over to the IT team, who found Brittenford’s pre-built ExpenseConnect for GP solution.
In less than two weeks, Brittenford was able to work with the Diamondbacks IT and Finance teams to configure and implement the integration through an interface directly installed into Dynamics GP.
