Engineered by Microsoft to Allow Rich Industry Functionality

Tangicloud’s Fundamentals is powered by Microsoft Business Central (Formerly Microsoft Dynamics NAV or Navision), the world’s leading middle-market ERP software. Microsoft engineers built a world-class software product, as well as the most versatile deployment platform available.  Tangicloud then added industry-specific functionality for nonprofits and governments using the same standards and methodologies.

Our product vision for our Fundamentals App emphasizes more features, faster implementations and an optimized user experience.  Some enhancements you’ll find to the base Business Central product include 8 Global Dimensions, enhanced Excel integration, and usability enhancements. Ask your Business Central Partner about other improvements Tangicloud has added to base Business Central in Fundamentals.

In addition to the base product enhancements, we’ve also added industry specific features to make your organization as transparent, efficient and modern as possible, while keeping the support load light for IT professionals.

And on the new platform, Microsoft provides fantastic integration with Word, Excel, Outlook, Teams and Power BI to further increase user productivity.  “Seamless integration” with Microsoft Apps isn’t a claim, it’s a fact.

Built For The Future

Fundamentals users are assured of long-term viability because of Microsoft’s multi-billion dollar investment in the Business Central platform. The majority of programming is done by massive Microsoft development teams based in Copenhagen, Denmark, and enhanced Tangicloud to meet the specific needs of nonprofits and governments.

World Class ERP Plus Best-in Class Industry Solution

Fundamentals is powered by Microsoft Business Central to deliver industry-specific functionality typically only found in older vertical accounting software products. Business Central delivers a richness of functionality for handling multiple companies, currencies, general ledger, payables, receivables, inventory, etc.  Then Fundamentals extends this solution to add fully integrated, industry-specific functionality like:

  • Labor and Cost Allocations
  • Fund/Grant Management
  • Out-of-the-box nonprofit/government financial reports
  • Purchase requisitions with commitments
  • Purchase orders with encumbrances
  • EFT & MICR payments
  • Electronic Approvals
  • Loan Management
  • Budget Control
Easy To Enhance, Easy to Customize

How does Tangicloud add so much functionality with Fundamentals?  We are an accomplished ISV partner with experience building fund accounting software for over 20 years.  Microsoft provides Tangicloud with the complete source code for the base product, plus software development tools that allow us to build new features rapidly. Any code by the Tangicloud team has to pass stringent Microsoft certification tests to assure long-term support. For end users and partners, this makes Fundamentals a clear, safe, and easy choice for nonprofits and governments.

Microsoft Dataverse


Microsoft Dataverse, formerly known as Common Data Service (CDS), offers several benefits to nonprofit organizations. Here are some of the ways it can benefit nonprofits:

Centralized Data Management: Dataverse provides a centralized repository for storing and organizing all relevant data of a nonprofit organization. It allows nonprofits to collect, manage, and access data from various sources in one place, facilitating better collaboration and streamlined workflows.

Improved Data Analysis and Reporting: Nonprofits can leverage Dataverse’s powerful features for data analysis, reporting, and visualization. By combining data from diverse sources and creating meaningful reports and dashboards, organizations can gain valuable insights to make informed decisions and measure their impact more effectively.

Customizable and Scalable Platform: Dataverse is highly customizable, allowing nonprofits to design their own data models, fields, and entities to fit their unique requirements. It also provides scalability, enabling nonprofits to adapt and grow as their data needs evolve over time.

Integration with Other Microsoft Tools: Dataverse integrates seamlessly with various other Microsoft tools and applications, such as Power Apps, Power Automate, Power BI, and Business Central. This integration enables nonprofits to create powerful solutions, automate processes, and enhance productivity by leveraging the full Microsoft ecosystem.

Security and Compliance: As part of the Microsoft Cloud, Dataverse provides robust security features, including data encryption, access controls, and regular backups. It also helps nonprofits meet compliance requirements, such as GDPR, HIPAA, and SOC, ensuring the protection and privacy of sensitive data.

Collaboration and Remote Work: With Dataverse, nonprofits can collaborate effectively and work remotely. Teams can access and update data in real-time, regardless of their physical locations, enhancing collaboration and supporting flexible work environments.

Cost-Efficiency: Nonprofits can benefit from discounted or free access to Microsoft products and services through various programs like Microsoft for Nonprofits. This makes the adoption of Dataverse and its associated tools more cost-effective for nonprofits, allowing them to allocate resources to their core mission.

By leveraging these benefits, nonprofits can streamline their operations, improve data management, and make data-driven decisions to achieve their organizational goals more efficiently.
