Tigunia Royalties Management for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central was designed to remove typical design constraints and offer as many unlimited setups and options as possible. For example, there is no limitation between a Brand and a Sub Brand. Any Brand can have as many child brands (sub brands) as desired, and each of those can have as many child brands as desired. Contracts are a separate entity and can be assigned to a given Brand. There can be multiple contracts assigned to a Brand with multiple Payees per Contract.

 

Another important design aspect is that this Add-on can be installed at any time and still be able to report on data. There is no wait time after implementation before the data is usable.
