Accpac Co-Founder Don Thomson Speaks Up About Accpac Speed…Again

Posted by Meredith Gooch on Fri, Dec 11, 2009

Recently, we posted a blog entry about Don Thomson, Co-Founder of Sage Accpac ERP, that referred to his own blog about improving the speed of Accpac. He recently wrote a follow-up entry about faster Accpac performance where he said:

"...here's a quick tip: review Accpac's recommended database settings and make sure that the server and workstations are in compliance before thinking about hardware solutions.

How fast can Accpac run with a solid state drive? Will Accpac be 3 times faster if you replace a spinning platter drive with a solid state drive? My answer would a highly qualified yes. you can buy a solid state drive for $130 to $400." Read More...

Screen Your Reports

Posted by Meredith Gooch on Fri, Nov 27, 2009

Plus Computer Solutions has recently posted an article on their blog about the importance of screening reports in Sage Accpac ERP. Screening is very similar to “Print Preview” in that you view the report before you print it. This saves you time, printer ink, paper, etc. in case there are errors in the report that you may have not noticed before printing.

In the main Accpac window/System Manager, under “File”, you can set the the “Print Destination” to “Screen.” To check if it is already set to “Screen”, look for an icon on the bottom right of your Accpac window that looks like a blank piece of paper with a magnifying glass on it - similar to the one found in Microsoft Office programs. It indicates your current print destination.

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!

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!
