Adonix, Inc., one of the Washington DC area’s top suppliers of accounting systems, budgeting and forecasting, business intelligence, and customer relationship management solutions, announced that the latest version of Microsoft Solomon is now available. The new version, MS Solomon 5.5, has new features that were designed specifically for government contractors, which represent a large portion of the Adonix customer base.
“Microsoft continues to add great functionality to Solomon,” said Michael Mahoney, CPA, Adonix President and CEO. “Our customers are very excited about Solomon 5.5 and the new features designed specifically for government contractors.”
Of particular interest to many Adonix customers are new capabilities that make it easier for US government contractors to be compliant with Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) regulations. For example, Solomon Project Accounting now has the ability to calculate, store and print indirect rates calculated by pooled allocation groups. Labor and expense transactions can be set up to provide a complete transactional audit trail. Companies who serve the government now have greater automation of indirect rate calculation and compliance with DCAA requirements regarding labor transactions.
Also attractive to government contractors, who typically manage large projects, is the integration between Microsoft Solomon and Microsoft Project 2002. Solomon 5.5 includes the new Microsoft Business Solutions Professional Services Automation Enabler. Solomon and Project are integral pieces of the Microsoft Professional Services Automation (PSA) solution, which has been well received by government contractors.
According to Mahoney, Solomon 5.5 is now integrated with the new Microsoft Business Solutions Retail Management System. This integration allows for the easy sharing of information between the comprehensive retail solution and proven financial capabilities of Solomon. Solomon 5.5 offers customers significant new capabilities by enhancing the Foundation Series, Project Series and Payroll capabilities. Solomon 5.5 takes advantage of new integration points in Microsoft Office XP with the use of Smart Tags and creates a tighter integration to Microsoft Office. In addition, investments have been made in the inventory and distribution products to improve business’ overall productivity.
Said Mahoney, “Together, these new capabilities will better equip customers to achieve the control they need today, as well as the flexibility to innovate and grow for the future.”
In the official Microsoft press release announcing the new release, Eric de Jager, group product manager for Professional Services Automation and Solomon at Microsoft Business Solutions, said, “Solomon 5.5 empowers our customers to take full advantage of Microsoft technology’s capabilities to integrate critical business systems and applications. When systems are integrated and applications communicate with one another, managers have better access to important information within the tools they use most often. They can focus on what they do best, which is to manage the business strategically and evolve it according to the company’s long-term vision.”
