Grow Your Business with an ERP Solution

7 Strategic Ways to Grow Your Business with an ERP Solution

If you’ve reached a tipping point where the very tools and systems that supported your business growth are now hindering your ability to act with agility and insight. Keep your business going and growing with an ERP solution from Tridea.

  1. Simplify business processes

When the most simple processes, like invoicing and month-end closing can take hours…even days to complete, your need to automate repetitive tasks, streamline your supply chain and free up time for more important matters.

  1. Transform the way you work

The traditional workplace isn’t so traditional anymore, and business doesn’t stop because you’re on the road or working from home. Create, share and collaborate from virtually anywhere and put information at your people’s fingertips with one user experience that extends across your systems.

  1. Focus on what matters most

Don’t limit your view to past performance. Shape the future when you turn your business data into the information that helps your people and your company be more agile, responsive and focused on your customers.

  1. Establish internal controls

When users can make changes to journal entries or approve orders without proper workflows or audit trails, your company is at risk. Get greater control and reduce your chance of fraud.

  1. Be lean, stay lean

Reduce cost and complexity of managing your business when the systems you use to manage your business and the tools your people use to manage their calendar, email, and data all work together and all come from the same trusted source.

  1. Plan ahead

Database size, transaction, and user limits holding you back? Don’t put off business growth because your accounting software can’t keep up. Overcome constraints, identify and support new business, and be prepared for the future. A business solution from Tridea scales up or down as your needs change. Start with what you need now and scale up or down as your business needs change – in the cloud or on your servers – the choice is yours.

  1. Remove risk

Get started without disrupting your business or your cash flow. A business solution from Tridea is quick to implement, easy to use, and has the power to support your growth ambition.

Dynamics GP: Adding Contacts and E-mail Addresses to a 1096 Form

Well, it’s that time of the year again.

1096 Modification requests should start any day from our clients. The IRS has decided to change their 1096 form adding requirements. The most common request from our clients is adding the Contact Name and E-mail Address to the 1096 form.

Contact name is relatively easy. If you’re already in the Print 1099 screen just click on the Address ID you have selected for the 1099.

  • This will open the Company Address Setup screen.
  • Scroll down to the Contact line and input the appropriate Name or Title in the available space.

Now that you are in the Company Address Setup screen scan to the right of the Address ID and you will see a small globe. This represents internet information.

  • Click on the globe
  • The internet information setup screen will appear.
  • The select information for: should default in as Company.
  • Confirm the Address ID you want to modify.
  • In the E-mail Address information area, select To: and input the e-mail address you want to assign.
    • This will trigger Exchange to try and Validate the email address, just click Cancel
  • Save the changes

You are now done with the Setup Changes. Test print your 1096 Form, your Contact name and E-mail address will print on the appropriate line.

Microsoft Dynamics GP: Analytical Accounting and Integration Manager

One of the downfalls of Dynamics GP Analytical Accounting, is the ability to use existing Integrations through integration manager. There are many articles that contain information on how to update the integration so that AA does not interfere, however, until recently, I have not been able to accomplish this.

One difference is that the integration manager node needs to be the eConnect destination – not the standard destination. You will see that the fields are available for the Transaction Dimension, Transaction Dimension Code, and Dimension Code Amount. When mapping to these fields, however, errors are often encountered.

I was able to narrow down one of the causes of the error message I received. It had to do with the Journal Entry field being set to Use Default. eConnect requires a value to be supplied for the journal entry.

In order to resolve, there are two options. Note the next Journal entry number and populate the data within the source file of the integration, and change the Rule for the Journal Entry Number to Use the Source File. The other option is to add a couple scripts to the Integration. One script will be added to the Before Document event script within the Integration manager properties. The other is to set the field to retrieve that number.

Please find the scripts below – Now you can finally take advantage of uploading Journal Entries with Analytical Accounting Information!

Before Integration Script:

Const adCmdStoredProc = 4
Const adParamInput = 1
Const adParamOutput = 2
Const adParamInputOutput = 3
Const adInteger = 3
Const adVarchar = 200
Const adBoolean = 11
Const adChar = 129
Const adDate = 7
Const adNumeric = 131


Dim SqlStmt
Dim objConnection, objCommand, NextJournal


Set objConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set objCommand = CreateObject("ADODB.Command")



objConnection.Open _
   "Provider= SQLOLEDB;Server=MGB001\GP11;Database=TWO; Trusted_Connection=yes;"



With objCommand
.ActiveConnection = objConnection
.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
.CommandText = "glGetNextJEWrapper" 'our wrapper stored proc

.Parameters.Append .CreateParameter ("@IO_iOUTJournalEntry", adInteger, adParamOutput, 4)
.Parameters.Append .CreateParameter ("@O_iErrorState", adInteger, adParamOutput, 4)

.Execute
NextJournal = objCommand.Parameters("@IO_iOUTJournalEntry").Value
End With

SetVariable "gblJounal", NextJournal

Set objCommand = Nothing
Set objConnection = Nothing



Journal Entry field Script:
CurrentField.Value = GetVariable("gblJournal")
