Given one piece of information, what could you find out about a transaction? There is a wealth of information available through the EXEControl “display” options, also called views or inquiries. Join us to learn some tips on navigating the vast amount of data, hints on focusing in on the information you need, and tricks to view the information in different ways.
Sales & Operations Planning – Presented by: Jon Sternfeld, 1:30 pm
Businesses must respond to change faster than ever. It may seem counterintuitive, but one of the keys to being able to respond quickly in the short term is to look further into the future. Beyond the horizon of sales forecasts, lies the realm of Sales and Operations Planning. Long used by large manufacturers, S&OP is starting to be used by smaller companies, particularly in retail and banking. This session will outline the steps involved, the costs associated, and the benefits to be gained by properly implementing S&OP. Also learn how EXEControl supports the planning process.
Why Can’t I Change This? – Presented by: Dan Wright, 2:30 pm
When journals are cut off, transactions are posted, and periods are advanced, closed, or even reopened, what does it all mean? And more importantly, how does it affect your workflow? Some of the routine accounting tasks in EXEControl impact your ability to enter or edit transactions, especially those that may have occurred in prior periods. This session will expand on those routine tasks, while also looking at the strategies available to correct problems that relate to past dates and closed periods.
