For organisations with a centralised finance team (shared service) the multi-company functionality could be a much smoother experience if some of the following suggestions could be adopted:-

For transaction processing expand the concept of Global General Journal entry to other transaction, such as tax invoice journals, vendor payments, sales invoices etc. instead of using the very outdated concept of switching between companies.

Add a company selection tab to " records to include in this report" for standard SSRS reports and system inquiries so they can be run for multiple companies, without having to run the report multiple times.

Allow customers and vendors to be added once and used globally across companies instead of duplicated across multiple companies and linked.

Allow the option to specify workflow definitions as global across all companies or restricted to 1 or more companies. This would significantly reduce the workflow set-up and maintenance burden.

I imagine that architecturally some of these changes may be significant or they would have already been made. But they will transform the experience for multi-company from good to excellent.
