What does CRM mean?
Short answer:  Customer Relationship Management

Long answer: A strategy that focuses on how you interact with your customers. But there's much more to it than that. And to put your CRM strategy into action, you'll need software tools that track the responses and actions of customers, employees and others involved in your business relationships.

What does ERP mean?
Since we sell accounting software we use the term ERP.  Many prospects ask what ERP stands for.

Short answer:  Enterprise Resource Planing

Long answer: Enterprise resource planning (ERP) is the industry term used to describe a broad set of activities supported by multi-module application software that helps a manufacturer or other business manage the important parts of its business. These parts can include product planning, parts purchasing, maintaining inventories, interacting with suppliers, providing customer service, and tracking orders. ERP can also include application modules for the finance and human resources aspects of a business.

How much is your reputation worth? It's difficult to assign a monetary value to an intangible asset like "reputation." But chances are you've spent a great deal of time and effort building your company's good name. That's invaluable because, when problems occur, customers are more likely to remain loyal if you have a reputation for integrity. Recently, we've seen prestigious brand names such as Toyota, Goldman Sachs, and BP tarnished by PR disasters. It will take years for those companies to regain their customers' trust. That's something to think about when you're considering your next software purchase. After all, technology releases come and go - but you need a reseller who is in it for the long haul. A good reputation may be hard to quantify on a balance sheet, but one thing is certain; we take pride in our reputation and will never take your trust in us for granted.

It looks like most CPAs in this country are gearing up for the move toward global accounting standards, likely to be adopted in 2015. A new survey by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants shows growing awareness for the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), along with the recognition that expert knowledge will be necessary when they are implemented. IFRS have already been issued for small and medium-sized entities; it turns out survey respondents are still a bit unsure about adopting them. Click here to find out what your peers are thinking

Virtualization Nation
Here's a sobering thought: "About 70% of a typical IT budget in a non-virtualized datacenter goes towards just maintaining the existing infrastructure, with little left for innovation." No wonder so many companies are jumping on the cloud computing bandwagon. But what is virtualization, and how does it work? The experts are VMware answer those questions and more in this informative piece. Along with listing the "Top 5 Reasons to Adopt Virtualization Software," they explain what a virtual machine actually does - and you don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand it.

Management Reporter for Microsoft Dynamics ERP
Microsoft has introduced a corporate performance management system for its Dynamics GP and SL products that will provide real-time financial reporting for midsized businesses looking to achieve greater visibility across their organizations.

Known as Management Reporter, the product will act as the replacement for Microsoft FRx, a financial reporting and analysis application available to Microsoft Dynamics ERP customers.  "This is the first step in a multi-year roadmap to deliver broader corporate performance management capabilities across our Microsoft Dynamics ERP solutions," said Crispin Read, general manager of Microsoft Dynamics ERP at Microsoft. "Management Reporter retains many elements of the Microsoft FRx product but is built on a completely updated architecture that will provide a new level of scalability and reliability for customers."
Management Reporter allows Dynamics GP and SL product users to create, generate, help secure and publish profit and loss statements, balance sheets, and cash flow reports.

FRx customers making the transition to Management Reporter can use a downloadable migration tool. They will experience a variety of new features including direct integration with the Microsoft Dynamics ERP general ledger and a report library where reports can be secured, stored and viewed.

Maximize the Value of Your Custom Business Applications with Microsoft Dynamics CRM
To achieve strategic advantage, companies often look to their information technology (IT) departments for line-of business (LOB) applications that help them outperform their competitors. Whether it is a business intelligence application that provides managers with unique insights into market opportunities, a business process application that enables rapid delivery of products and services to market, or a customer relationship application that helps the company differentiate with superior customer service, business applications are often critical to creating competitive advantage. However, IT faces a number of challenges when providing these applications. Constraints in skills, budgets, and time can significantly limit successful delivery of these applications. Addressing these challenges with the proper application frameworks, tools, and infrastructure is a strategic, business-critical decision.

Y2K Revisited
Ten years ago, the world held its collective breath at midnight on New Year's Eve, as the nineties ticked over and a new century was ushered in. Would cars stop working? Would missiles mistakenly launch? Would the financial markets fall apart? We were all worried about the Millennium Bug, that little glitch programmers at the dawn of computing unwittingly created by using two-digit dates instead of four-digit ones, so when the date "99" became "00" critical systems everywhere might believe the world had reverted to 1900.  Click here to see if your accounting system is about to expire.
