Upcoming Webcast for Microsoft Dynamics GP

Microsoft Dynamics Webcast: Microsoft Dynamics GP Light User: Extend Business Insight and Productivity to everyone in your organization

Many employees in organizations cannot access critical business data within business management solutions. Microsoft Dynamics GP Light User is a cost-effective solution that makes it possible for users to access business management solutions in a familiar Microsoft Office interface.

By using the Microsoft Dynamics GP Light User license, employees can interact with Microsoft Dynamics financial, human resources, and operational information within the Microsoft Office software they use daily. Using Microsoft Office desktop productivity tools, such as Microsoft Office Excel®, Microsoft Office Outlook®, and Microsoft Office Word, helps reduce the time required for training and gives your employees time to focus on what matters most. Microsoft Dynamics GP Light User provides users direct access to the business-critical information they need.

IFRS Net Impact on Taxable Income, Elimination of 72 year old LIFO Accounting practices?

As if corporate America doesn't have enough economic pressure upon its shoulders these days. Now, the 2011 federal budget proposed by the Obama Administration again includes a provision to repeal LIFO accounting. LIFO allows companies to calculate the cost of goods sold based on the price of the most recently purchased ("last-in") inventory, rather than inventory that was purchased more cheaply in the past and has been sitting on the shelf. That boosts the cost of goods sold, which lowers profits - and, thus, taxable income. Let's face the truth here, inventory isn't flying off the shelves for anyone and what in the world are the lawmakers in Congress thinking?

Full story here as published in CFO magazine.

Are you drinking the Cloud Kool-Aide?

Let's face it, there is a lot of debate going on within businesses between IT Leadership and Executive Management. I am the lucky recipient of both sides of the argument. Most of time, IT tends to be less supportive of Software as a Service, or Application Service Providers (outsourcing) and the revenue generation side of the organization tends to be largely in support of outsourcing.

However, there are some valid arguments for not embracing cloud based computing alternatives. Here are five reasons some CFOs have shared with us why they won't be embracing the Cloud anytime soon: Cloud not in the forecast for some CFOs

May Edition of IDT's Integration Insider

I will be brief this time around because our May edition of IDT's Integration Insider Newsletter sums up all I wanted to share this time around! Cloud computing, Software as a Service and Managed Services still continue to at the top of the interest list that my customers and prospects desire most talking to me about. It all can be rather confusing for any of us to understand and in this months edition, we break it down into a Q & A forum and sum up the questions we are hearing most often when speaking to our customers and prospects.

Also, new features have emerged with Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online that may pique your interest. Did you know that we here at IDT use Dynamics CRM to manage our customer and vendor relationships? We also use c360's Incident Tracking module...when you log a call with our help desk, that case number that gets assigned is all automated and routed to our help desk for tracking purposes.

Lastly, we have an innovative offering for Dynamics GP users that allow our customers to document image enable Dynamics GP...its called, ERP Connect. The solution allows for Single Step Data Entry, workflow and image enabling Dynamics GP. We usually see a need for ERP Connect emerge in paper ridden Accounts Payable departments. Sound like you? Give me a call or drop an email to for more information.

Ooops, I almost forgot, I May edition of the IDT Integration Insider can be read by clicking here!

Kind Regards,
