Live Webcast: Want to Learn More About Process Scheduler?

Posted by Meredith Gooch on Thu, Nov 26, 2009

Were you recently at our Accpac Thanksgiving event and lucky enough to listen in on one of Rob Lavery's sessions? I was fortunate enough to hear him describe Orchid Systems' Process Scheduler and how it can help automate mundane processes. For example, instead of having to run data integrity checks at nights on weekends (unfortunately, the only time that others aren't in the system), you can run an automated schedule to run integrity checks for you instead by using Process Scheduler! Your Friday nights are yours again!

To catch a live Webcast on the Process Scheduler as well as on Bin Tracking in warehouses for inventory control, join this Webcast on Monday, November 30, 2009.

Accpac Thanksgiving 2009

Posted by Meredith Gooch on Mon, Nov 23, 2009

This past Thursday, November 19, Terrell & Terrell hosted its 10th annual client appreciation conference, Accpac Thanksgiving!

We kicked off the day with a great keynote speaker, Joe Rotella, who presented us with ways to use social media to boost the bottom line. Followed by lunch at Fogo de Chao , attendees were given the choice of 9 different breakout sessions including sessions about Sage FAS Fixed Assets, Orchid Systems, Pacific Technology, SageCRM, Accpac Tips and Tricks, and many more. During the closing session, great prizes were given away including gift cards to Fogo de Chao, a gift certificate to Music in Motion, and a free SageCRM LanPak! Congratulations to the winners!

Attendees were also able to receive 8 CPE credits for attending the entire day. Once again, we created a funny, yet informative, video that was first shown at Accpac Thanksgiving. Click Here to see it! It's a spoof of "The Dating Game," but about someone who is trying to find the great ERP system. (I wonder which one she chooses...?!?)

So please join us next year if you missed out on this annual event! Thank you to everyone who came out! The event was a great success, and we hope to see you again net November!

Bin Tracking & ACCU-DART

Posted by Meredith Gooch on Mon, Sep 28, 2009

Make bin tracking easy and efficient with ACCU-DART!

The old way:

Every time an item is picked for shipping or moved from one bin to another, the warehouse staff has to manually record which bin the item was taken from and where it will go. This information is then entered into the accounting system.

Because bin movements are not being recorded in real-time, errors are easily made and inventory is always out of date.

The ACCU-DART way:

When an item is picked for shipping or for any other bin movement, the warehouse staff can scan the items with ACCU-DART's radio-frequency scanners. ACCU-DART will prompt the user to enter the current bin they are taking the items from and the destination bin. ACCU-DART validates and, upon posting, automatically updates the accounting system in real-time.

For Sage Accpac ERP users, this functionality is available through integration with the bin tracking solution designed by Orchid Systems. This new 3rd party solution allows Sage Accpac ERP users to track inventory items stored in multiple bins within a warehouse or Inventory Control location.

ACCU-DART makes it easy to maintain inventory and bin accuracy within the warehouse. Click Here for more information about our partner.
