Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Enhancements Blog #3: Payables and Receivables Management

In the previous blog for our Dynamics GP 2013 Enhancements Blog Series we discussed the new General Ledger enhancements. For this installment, we are going to continue discussing financial enhancements, but with a focus on Payables and Receivables Management. These new features will allow you to work more accurately and effectively when managing your cash flow.

Payables Management
•Edit Payables Information- With this feature, you can change the remit to address ID on existing transactions. This allows you to edit the payables transaction rather than voiding it and starting over for one incorrectly-entered address.

•Reprint remittance forms and check stubs- You can reprint remittance forms and check stubs for posted check payments entered. Since you must keep a transaction history of all the vendors you will be re-creating, these reports will contain all of the details from the original document if the original was printed, the payment wasn’t voided, or if the history wasn’t deleted.

•Voiding reconciled payments- A field has been added to the Void Historical Payables Transaction window and the Void Open Payables Transaction window that indicates if payment has been reconciled in Bank Reconciliation.

•Voiding check enhancements- When you have credit memos applied to an invoice and want to void a payment that is applied to that same invoice, the credit memo or return is automatically unapplied from the invoice and can be reapplied as needed.

Receivables Management
•Define labels for user-defined fields in Customer Address Maintenance- The labels for the user-defined fields that appear in the Customer Address Maintenance window can now be defined so that users know what information to track in those fields.

•Applying unposted multicurrency cash receipts- You can now apply unposted cash receipts to transactions in the same currency as the cash receipt.

•View Checkbook ID- You can view the checkbook ID that a cash receipt was posted to by using the Cash Receipts Inquiry Zoom window.

•Combine or modify customer ID’s- If you want to combine or modify customer ID’s, you can import data without having to manually enter the information by using the Customer Combiner and Modifier window.

These features allow you to work conveniently and deliver smooth and accurate information without having to go through the trouble of restarting your process. With Dynamics GP 2013, you can access more information faster and in fewer steps.

One of the most powerful features of the GP Manufacturing Suite, is MRP – Materials Requirements Planning. Paradoxically, it may also be one of the least understood functionalities in the GP world! While MRP can work wonders for a manufacturing organization in helping control inventory, there is a certain level of hesitation, in the user *and* the consulting community, about implementing MRP. Some of the hesitation may stem from the users’ experiences with MRP in a legacy ERP system, or sometimes it is simply due to a lack of understanding of the mechanics and the functioning of MRP. And then some folks might just feel intimidated by the plethora of new terminology that gets introduced in relation to MRP.

What is MRP?
Very simply put, MRP encompasses “a set of techniques that uses bill of material data, inventory data, and the master production schedule to calculate requirements for materials.” (APICS definition of MRP) The primary objective of MRP is to balance out the supply and demand for purchased as well as manufactured items, in a “time phased” manner. It thus strives to ensure the supply (availability) of items (products), to the demand for those items (products), over a defined time span (‘horizon’). The outcome of a “well-oiled MRP machine” is a well-coordinated production and purchasing plan.

Very loosely put, MRP has at its core, the objective of ensuring the equality in the very simplistic equation Supply = Demand, for all inventoried products, across the entire planning time-span (horizon):

Demand for a product is derived from the sales orders placed by the customers and sales forecasts (independent demand, for finished products), as well as the manufacturing pick lists (dependent demand, for raw materials and components). It also includes the safety stock levels that must be maintained. Supply of a product includes purchasing and manufacturing receipts, and the inventory on hand. MRP tries to establish a balance in the Supply Demand equation. Where an imbalance exists (i.e. a shortage or an overage / excess) MRP will recommend a corrective action, based on the nature of the imbalance and the replenishment method of the part. For example, where the supply is less than demand (shortage), MRP will recommend a purchase order for buy parts, and a manufacturing order for make parts, to meet the shortage. It may also recommend moving-in an existing purchase order or a manufacturing order. Where supply is in excess of demand (overage), it would recommend the cancellation or moving-out of a purchase order or a manufacturing order as the case may be.

As mentioned above, there are three basic outputs of an MRP run: recommended purchase orders, recommended manufacturing orders, and warnings / notifications (called ‘exceptions’ in GP).

In recommending the corrective action thus identified, MRP will further reinforce this very simple and intuitive math with rules (‘order policies’) and quantity modifiers: minimums, maximums, and multiples, batch sizes. For example, a shortage of 527 units of a part may result in a recommended purchase order for 550 units, if the order multiple is set to 50 (let’s say that the vendor sells this part in multiples of 50 only).To make the planning sensitive to time, MRP will incorporate purchasing lead times as well as manufacturing lead times. Thus MRP can be modeled to perform a comprehensive math, based on real-life situational rules. This significantly adds to the power of MRP.

In spite of the power of MRP and its usefulness in the production and materials planning, apprehensions and misconceptions about MRP abound in the un-initiated user space. “Will MRP force me to create and schedule manufacturing orders according to its plan?” “Will it cause me to build up inventory based on unmet forecasts?” “The MRP recommendations do not make sense.” “MRP is not working right.” These are some of the commonly expressed / mis-conceptions. In fact, MRP is not the be-all and end-all of manufacturing. It is only a tool, which only makes recommendations, it does not perform any self-initiated actions. It is a deterministic mathematical model that is sensitive to the settings and data parameters. The age-old adage of “Garbage in Equals Garbage Out” holds especially true about MRP.

To remove the apprehensions and misconceptions, what is needed is a clear understanding of MRP, its objective, it’s functioning. A detailed knowledge of the data elements that MRP is dependent upon, and how they are treated, and where they are stored in the labyrinth of GP screens. This will enable the user to correctly interpret the results of MRP, take appropriate actions, and overall boost their confidence in MRP.

The “MRP Workshop”. Our approach to de-mystifying MRP involves conducting an “MRP Workshop.” This workshop is conducted either as part of a GP Manufacturing implementation, or as a stand-alone session. It thus addresses the needs of new users (new implementation) as well as GP users who may actually be using MRP, but who still need to get a sense of confidence in the MRP results (stand-alone session). The objective of the workshop is to gain such a deep understanding of MRP, that the workshop participants can predict the outcome of MRP. To facilitate this, we create a simple “control environment”. We go over the setup requirements, and the data that provides the inputs to MRP. We go over, for example, the impact of checking an in-obtrusive check-box, and how that would affect the MRP suggestions. We do various “what-if” scenarios. We make changes to the data, and based on the changes made, try to predict the quantitative output of MRP. If the MRP returns results are not in line with the expectation, we analyze and substantiate the results of MRP, and reconcile the prediction with the actual results. When the MRP results are exactly per expectation / prediction, we move on to the next scenario.

By the end of the workshop, the participants have a thorough understanding of MRP and its functioning. We have eliminated their apprehensions and misconceptions about MRP, strengthened their ability to predict MRP results and increased their confidence in the results. We have demystified MRP.

We recently held a Microsoft Dynamics GP User Group Meeting in St. Louis, MO.  Our feature speakers were the owners from Reporting-Central.  One of their products that caught my attention was “The Validator”.  This product helps Dynamics GP users eliminate manual validation and reconciliation processes to make Microsoft Dynamics GP a better business solution by continuously monitoring critical areas of their solution.  Also, another major takeaway that I think many current users of Microsoft Dynamics GP would find very interesting are the most commonly overlooked Set-Up and On-Going Use issues in Dynamics GP.  Here is a small list that Reporting-Central shared with us.

User Security Set To POWERUSER

Future Fiscal Periods Open

Maximum Account Length set too low

Posting Not Set To Create Journal Entry Per Transaction

Dex Lock

Interrupted Batch

Stuck Process

Account Maintenance Allows Account Entry on Control Account

Account Posting Level Set To Summary

Maintain Account History Not Checked

Retained Earnings Category Not Set to 27

Checkbook Allows Duplicate Check Numbers

Customer Accounts Receivable Control Account empty

Maintenance Customer Missing Salesperson

Maintenance Customer Missing Tax Schedule

Vendor 1099 Box Checked With No Tax Id

Old Open Purchase Orders

These are just a small sample of the issues that Reporting-Central’s software can monitor and alert Microsoft Dynamics GP users.  If you have additional questions or would like to learn more about how “The Validator” could help your Microsoft Dynamics GP investment, please give me a call today at 636-237-2280 or send me an email at mramatowski@turnkeytec.com .

I would also invite you to download an upbeat and engaging new white paper, “25 Brilliant Ideas to Outsmart Your Competition with Microsoft Dynamics ERP”.  This report includes 25 examples from real companies – from non-profits to distributors and many in between.

“Mediocre men wait for opportunity to come to them.  Strong, able, alert men go after opportunity.” B.C. Forbes

Debates over online sales tax, and related statutory rules and rate changes have vaulted sales and use tax compliance to the top of every savvy businessperson’s 2013 action list. Understanding how to implement safeguards and systems, monitor widely varying statutory rules, and find efficient ways to collect and remit the right sales and use tax to the right jurisdiction at the right time, can flummox even the most compliance-minded businessperson.

The following five sales tax compliance tips identify steps your business can take to address 2013’s particular challenges. Developed by Avalara sales tax experts, these are a starting point, rather than an exhaustive strategy, for addressing sales and use tax compliance in 2013.

Tip #1 — Determine tax liability by analyzing changes to nexus rules

While most businesses have some concept of nexus—the connection between a business and a taxing jurisdiction requiring sales tax collection and remittance — many are unaware of dramatic changes to nexus laws happening now. There are numerous developments on the federal level, but this tip focuses on state level changes that are currently underway. These rule changes significantly impact out-of-state remote sellers (such as online retailers), but all businesses should watch nexus laws closely.

Tip #2 —Stop ignoring consumer use tax

Use tax is defined as a tax on the use of tangible personal property (TPP) not otherwise subject to sales tax. Generally speaking, a purchaser owes use tax on taxable items purchased on which they paid no sales tax or less tax than the applicable sales tax rate. Unlike sales tax, the remittance responsibility lies with the buyer (either a business or an individual). In some cases, the purchaser would be a business, such as a manufacturer or a distributor, buying goods outside the state or online, to use, or consume as TPP. Use tax must also be paid when a business withdraws goods from inventory for its own use, if sales tax was not paid on those items at the time of purchase. It is the responsibility of a business to self-assess when, and if, use tax is accrued and to pay the state and/or local tax authority on a tax return.

Tip #3 — Understand changing exemption certificate rules

Tracking and filing exemption certificates, the bugaboo of many a well-intentioned business owners, has just gotten more complicated. In 2013, several governors have already proposed plans that would change what their states exempt from sales tax.

Tip #4 —Know when, where, and how to remit sales and use tax returns

Even companies that work hard to accurately track and update changes in sales and use tax rules, boundaries, and rate changes often fail to remit their liability correctly. Knowing which form to use, where to file, and what to include in your returns, can be an onerous task.

Tip #5 —Get Help

Companies trying to accurately collect, file, and report sales and use taxes face an uphill battle in 2013.

Please join us on April 17th for a free educational webinar hosted by Avalara, on “Sales Tax Automation and How to Take the Lead in All 50 States”, including how to grow into new markets and stay compliant. This thought leadership webinar will be presented by industry leading experts from WithumSmith + Brown. They will share the critical steps to growth and what you need to know when looking to go forward with a new state.

“Change is inevitable in a progressive society.  Change is constant.” – Benjamin Disraeli

 

In today’s competitive global markets, small to midsize companies are finding it harder and harder to compete using the same tools they used 5-10 years ago to achieve their business goals.  More and more companies are looking at replacing their current accounting systems and are turning to Microsoft Dynamics GP .   Here are four signs you are ready to make a move:

  1. Maintenance – Annual maintenance is too expensive for the value it brings to the organization. Your current accounting software lacks the things you need to run the business.  Microsoft continues to invest billions of dollars each year enhancing Microsoft Dynamics GP for maximum value to their users.
  2. Integration – Doesn’t integrate well with other systems and can’t get at the data very easily. Microsoft Dynamics GP works well with third party applications because of the ability to use web services and the Microsoft .Net Framework.
  3. Reporting – Current reporting done manually and staff doesn’t have real-time access to decision- driving information.   Microsoft Dynamics GP has 220 out-of-the-box Office Excel reports that can be instantly refreshed, plus gain tighter control of consolidations, financial reporting and budgeting across your organization.
  4. Mobility –Executives and employees need information at their fingertips even when they are out on the road.  Accessibility to multiple devices like iPads, iPhones and smart devices is a must in today’s world.    Information has to be accessible over the internet, so users can access information on any computer, no matter where they are at.

These are just a few of the signs it is time to change, to learn more about Microsoft Dynamics GP go to www.turnkeytec.com.

“I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by conscious endeavor.” – Henry David Thoreau

 

Stephen R. Covey, author of the bestselling self-help book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” recently passed away this July.   This book has sold over 20 million copies since being released and has made me a fan of his work for years.  In tribute, I’m going to look at the first 3 Habits in his book and show how Microsoft Dynamics GP can help solidify them in your organization.

Be Proactive – Microsoft Dynamics GP can help you make the Vision for your company a reality.  You decide where you want to take the business and create the strategic business plan with all of the management business objectives (MBOs).   Microsoft Dynamics GP has the business tools like Dashboards, Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and Real-Time Drill Down Reports to help your management team execute the MBOs faster and realize your Vision sooner.

Begin With The End In Mind – Today’s success in business doesn’t guarantee future successes. You always need to be planning ahead and be flexible enough to change with market conditions.  Where do you want to take the business the next 3, 5, 10 years?  Microsoft Dynamics GP is the right platform to scale easily without compromising system performance or user experiences.  Microsoft Dynamics GP has many Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) partners as well to enhance and meet your specific industry needs.

Put First Things First – Microsoft Dynamics GP can help your individual employees get laser focused on the details that drive the business on a daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly basis to achieve the company goals.  Microsoft Dynamics GP does this by helping each individual set up tasks and reminders that will appear on their Role Tailored Home Page. They can keep track of their progress with Graphical Dashboards that deliver personalized access to real time information.

In summary, Microsoft Dynamics GP can help your organization live these habits daily.  To learn more about Microsoft Dynamics GP, please go to our website www.turnkeytec.com or give me a call.

“Cloud tipping point at hand”- says Google CIO Ben Fried

The fast pace of technology changes over the last few years has challenged CIOs and CFOs to keep up.  Government regulations, global economic turmoil, and technology-savvy employees are creating demands on your business, and your ERP Software System is at the center of it all.

In the past, many organizations wouldn’t have dreamed of putting their critical business systems outside their walls. But with the advancement of technology it makes a lot of sense to reconsider.  Here are three reasons to look at a cloud hosted solution for your ERP System:

  1. Regulatory Compliance – It can be very expensive keeping SAS 70 Type II and SOX compliance for your organization.  By choosing a SOX compliant ERP hosting provider, you can leverage all their policies to assure your own SOX compliance.
  2. Disaster Recovery – ERP hosting providers have more redundant systems, up- to- date software and hardware, highly trained staff, and multiple locations to protect your data and ensure its availability.  You can leverage their investment for faster turnaround times and peace of mind.
  3. Employee Consumerization of IT – Smartphones, iPhones, iPads are the mainstay with knowledgeable workers in the workforce. They are more mobile and want the same access to their business systems – no matter the place, time or device – as they have with their iTunes or Facebook.

These are just a few reasons for putting your ERP Software System in the cloud today.  If your ERP Software can’t move to the cloud, look to Microsoft Dynamics GP as a solution.
