Common questions about trials
Does it really only take you 1.5 hours to setup a system?Yes. Typically for 1-5 companies, it will only take about an hour and a half to setup. It might take longer if you have multiple companies with different chart of account structures.
What if we don’t have a test server?Most of our customers install the trial in their live environment. Dynamic Budgets runs on a read-only service account. The program can not change data or corrupt the ERP database. When a system is live we enable modification permission on one table only to be able to export the budget values back to the ERP. The greatest risk for IT to be concerned with is additional users querying the database. SQL Server and our application each have configurable query limits to prevent long-running queries.
If we like what we see, then what?If installed in your production environment, you pay for the license, we change the license type behind the scenes to a paid license so it won’t expire and you won’t skip a beat.
If installed in a test environment, you may have the option of migrating the database, copying key elements or starting from scratch (it depends upon whether the test was a mirror of production or if the GL accounts are substantially different from production).
Can the duration of the trial be flexible?We prefer to install as soon as we can schedule with your IT resources. If that means we can install before the finance team is ready to start the trial (month-end closing, audit, board meeting prep, etc.) we get it. We have been in that position and will gladly adjust the duration, if necessary, to accommodate your needs.
